Glenn Dale

Well, just about 14 hours until the start of the big challenge. I have arrived safely at my hotel in Glendale (actually, I think the hotel is just over the border in Phoenix, but the challenge will take place in Glendale).

I'm going to try to stay up kinda late tonight so I don't wake up too early tomorrow. Might go back out and scope out the area, figuring out where I'm going tomorrow, where the nearby 7-11s and Starbucks are, etc.

When rushing out the door, I forgot my camera, so I won't have any photos to post. Dang.

My good friend Steve (readers of my other blog might remember Steve) is one of a couple people I'm still in touch with who could remember my drawings from 30 years ago. He has taken a look at my practice page and allowed as how the style looks familiar but he has seen me do better.

Well... yeah... I'm a bit rusty. But anyway, the challenge isn't to create something good in 24 hours, just to create something 24 pages long in 24 hours. There's definitely some tension there. If I create 23 pages of the best work I've ever done in my life; I lose. If I create 24 pages of useless drivel, I win. Of course, I am hoping to create something good. Good things can happen fast. As I understand it, Grapes of Wrath was written in six weeks. It could almost have been a NaNoWriMo. So there you go.

Anyway, keep your expectations low enough, and I might just surpass them.
