fast times at stormhoek high


Two days ago I started work at 8am. I finished work at 5.30am yesterday morning. That's kind of how it's been around here recently.

The combination of so many things going on [moving into a new flat, the film, the day job, me going to America tomorrow night etc] has made it impossible to write properly, let alone draw cartoons.

Sure, there's a lot of good stuff going on, but I'm still hoping to get back to more cartooning by this time next week. For all the other things I get up to- marketing, blogging, etc- I'm a cartoonist first and foremost, and I would be loathe to do anything that would make me forget that.

I'm off to New York tomorrow. First time there in years. Having lunch with Steve Rubel on Friday.

Fast Times At Stormhoek High etc.

From your latest cartoons,
I'm getting the impression that its not only creative frustration that you're feeling.
Balance is a good thing.

Gee, Kimber, does this mean you're asking me out on a date?

Hugh, sweetheart, if I wasn't happily married...
I'd add color to your black and white world.

Hugh, weren't you the one who had moved away from New York in order to get away from the rat race? Where is the Zen in Working two days non-stop?

Yes. You have given me inspiration for my presentation on my dissertation next week.

Thanks a million.
