But the exciting news is . . . .(drumroll) . . . one of those projects I've been working on is a Lunchnotes book! It will be published like a mini-comic and the first volume will collect the first couple of years of lunchnotes - none of which have appeared on this blog. We'll be selling it at comic shows this summer and I hope to have it done by next week. Stay tuned for more info and a contest announcement!

This note makes me laugh while it makes me sad. I know this really is how Chris feels right now. It's not the first time and I know it won't be the last that he pushes himself this hard. Fortunately, we're not yet at the stage where he is soaking his drawing hand in ice water to numb the pain.

We spent most of last week on vacation in Minneapolis which means that the week prior to vacation Chris worked almost non-stop. It also means that this week he will work non-stop and be lucky to grab two or three hours of sleep a night. Hence, this lunch note.
Being a freelance artist definitely comes with a wealth of benefits but one serious drawback is that it becomes nearly impossible to take a vacation. Or at least plan one. This was our first non-comics related trip EVER in our almost seven years together. And it may very well be another seven years before we take another because I really hate watching Chris push himself so hard. So if you see Chris this week, be nice. He's working even harder than usual.
