Today I did more brainstorming for Seven Sins, and played with some ideas for video stuff. Now it’s off for some day drinking, justified as research.
Bunch of Moleskins. Today I brainstormed/researched for the 7 Sins project.
Here’s a rock my grandmother put in my Christmas stocking. Today I did more brainstorming for Wrath and Sloth. Wet, warm, brainstorms.
Behold my development binder (not full of women). This thing’s been at my side for well over 20. This is where the work’s done in between brainstorming & the “finished” work.
Today I worked on scripts for my audio show dealing with karma and the 7 Deadly Sins. Wrath was brainstormed, and I just finished outlining Lust.
