If you haven't sensed it, my motivation pendulum has swung in the wrong direction. Nothing to worry about too much. It's a pattern that develops. Like this:
1. Make Cartoon
2. Burnout period
3. Video Games
6. Go back to 1
I am firmly in phase 3 right now.
I'm not gonna lie, making these cartoons is far from plesant. I get consumed to the point that I forget to eat, and the dogshit piles up in the backyard. I get to be an irritable prick around the house. I work 40 + hours a week in a sterile environment for the government, and when I get home I spend every waking moment working on the cartoon. It's a burden on my wife, and I feel guilty.
But, making cartoons is not a choice. I don't do it for daily awards, and I don't do it for money. I do it because I have to. It's like a cold sore, it will go away for a while, but it will come back eventually. There's no getting around it. I have been making cartoons since I was 16 years old, and I am now very nearly 30. When I am shitting the bed in a damp, sticky nursing home I will still be making these. Maybe by that time I'll be up to SAMV 9. Lol.
Starting up a cartoon is like dangling my toes over the edge of a bottomless pit. Once I fall in, there is no going back until I am finished. And... I am not close enough to the edge of that pit yet. It's a scary feeling starting this thing up, because I know it will take up my life.
But I will start again. I have a feeling that it will be soon.
Throw me some motivation. I am getting a little low.
I think I'll attach a picture since that option is availible. And I love to waste Tom's server space =P
