More thoughts on editing

Went back and collected the last couple weeks of my #amediting tweets from Twitter. Editing is more fun than a barrel o’ wordmonkeys. Finished the novel. Sweet—plus the fabulous effect that it’s not mine. Love not being in charge o’ the art. My best to everyone, LWIII •    More words do not mean more power. […]

On not being an artist

Lordy, what a relief. All those years and years of suffering off my back. —Suffering, boy I tell ya—you artists can have it. I wondered why I sucked so bad at it. Not the suffering part. I was great at that. If you could sell suffering I would have been on Easy Street. No, I […]

My last blog

This ain’t really my last blog, just practicing up on my advertising copyrighting and playing the sympathy card. Lie, lie, lie, that’s me. Although that wasn’t really what I would call a downright lie, since I am gonna talk about that last blog that I wrote. Just did. Ha. Consider me with the same thoughtfulness […]

A soundtrack for my logo

Just finished the soundtrack. Boy that was fun. Real easy, compared to some software I’ve tried. Used Adobe Audition to mix the sound clips. Now all I have to do is sync it with the graphics in Flash. Pretty cool my logo has a soundtrack to go with it. Even Wal-Mart can’t say that, those […]

The home stretch

Coming into the home stretch for birth of The Word Doctor. Sent off the artwork to my web guy Steven Bradley today, all except the Flash file of the logo. Got all my ducks in a row on the sound files for the animation. My good pal Don Kraus (née Baron Figmar Munchmuffin, steaming buddy […]

Painting with shadows

Just finished composing the background graphic to my new site. Now the hard part starts, lighting it. After I decided to go with the steampunk theme, I Google-imaged the crap out of steampunk sites, just to get a feel for the look. This is the pic I found that I wanted to use as my […]

The Word Doctor is IN

Well, it’s official. I have a logo now, so it must be. There’s a new doctor in Wordtown. I may not have hung out my shingle yet, but it’s been carved and polished. The process has begun. This logo is the kind of thing that has to be done by someone with a lot of time […]
