2021-02-19 (F) Weekly Summary

I enjoy artsy stuff, but I also saw how someone could use an art technique to measure a yard's brightest spots. The result is called an anthotype and uses plant matter to stain a canvas then selectively erase the stain with sunlight.

I am working on Gravy Shock again. Instead of moving the story forward, I talked to a friend interested in making it into an indie comic. The all-dialogue script won't work, so I asked my girlfriend for help editing.
First page of comic revision

I started realizing the brutality of editing. Part of the challenge was that my girlfriend and I are working on my first draft, not one I've revised a couple of times. It is almost an exercise in tandem authorship. Despite the difficulty, it is even more rewarding.
Editing notes

I made a logo for the overbearing company that runs everything in the Gravy Shock universe. The name is Granica, and it means "border," so I drew their logo to represent a broken fence post.
Granica, your neighborhood overlord

I am getting the hang of editing with another person. At first, I would get defensive about questions and suggestions, but it was fun when I got that under control.
Editing notes for the day

Editing on paper felt familiar because of my creative writing classes. We would work workshop stories in class, but transferring them to an online document was worse than the initial edits, so I pasted the text into a form, and we started making edits there.
