I NEVER STOP (unless work asks me to)

Got an unexpected day off today.
It comes with a catch though: I was asked to work this weekend.
The math doesn't work too well when you think about it: one day off for two days of work. Hmmm...
Whetever needs to be done: there's another work deadline by mid May, leaving us barely two weeks to do more scenes. A whole bunch of us are going to be pulling long hours.

On a good note, I'll be taking a break right after that, going back to Montreal for a few days. Gotta go see my doctor, coordinate with her how to best transfer my files here in the US if I'm going to be here a while.

I'm running a bit late in the layout making of the books, but I've finished part one today.
I have to go through book 2 now, check files, resize and all.
Small change of my original plans, I will be putting more guest gallery material in the second book.
That is good.

Cover 1

Cover 2

And because today it is allowed...I'm off for a mid afternoon nap before returning to page layout work. Yay!!!

There should always be time for naptime (it feels so good, just back from it for round two).

J'ai vraiment hate de pouvoir feuilleter et lire tes tomes de Watertribe :3 En papier qui sent bon le papier et la colle en plus ca va etre troooop nice!

Ta visite a Montréal s'annonce pour être chargée?
Apr. 28th, 2009 10:29 pm (UTC)
Ha ha, t'en parle comme si c'était un sandwich XD

Un peu chargé malheureusement. La visite est un peu courte. Si j'ai le temps pour un lunch, je préviendrai!

Lovely lovely covers. The second is beautifully balanced, and the first is so very expressive.
Apr. 28th, 2009 10:29 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much!

Second one has come out rather nicely. Can't go wrong with black and red!
Nap was ever so good. Almost wish it was longer.
Apr. 28th, 2009 10:30 pm (UTC)
Those covers are so awesome. The second one especially has a nice effect!

And no, that work math doesn't make any sense, haha... you'll need to sleep with your eyes open an additional 8 hours this work week to make up for it.
Apr. 28th, 2009 10:34 pm (UTC)
I wonder if I could easily make a postcard of the second one.

I always sleep with my eyes open at work.
Oh wait, I'm not supposed to talk about that.
Maybe they'll let me have some of that overtime as vacation days. That would be nice.
Apr. 28th, 2009 10:43 pm (UTC)
Ahh they look so much cleaner now (DO WANT COMICS)

I'll definity saving to get one.
Apr. 28th, 2009 11:39 pm (UTC)
Yup. Gave my doodles a bath so they be clean.
Apr. 28th, 2009 11:04 pm (UTC)
SHIT. I'm buying these and you can't stop me. :DDDD
Apr. 28th, 2009 11:39 pm (UTC)
I'll have to start devising an evil plan to stop you.

Sometimes it makes me laugh when my students give the impression that believe animation is a 9-5 job. It just isn't! An animator is often expected to pull long hours, weekends gone, evenings gone. I've lost track of the number of naps I've taken uder my desk! I even used to keep a beanbag under there.
Covers look great!
Apr. 28th, 2009 11:38 pm (UTC)
Your students will get a reality slap the moment they start working. I know very few artists who manage to keep regular work hours week after week. Heck, we were just asked to please not take any long vacations this summer because the production needed us.

I have no problems falling asleep at work, ha ha!
The problem is getting caught.
Apr. 28th, 2009 11:33 pm (UTC)
Holy cow, gorgeous! Love the koi especially.

So sad to hear you're loosing one day ...but I'm sure they'll give you something back at the end of the project...wouldn't they?
Wonderful covers! I can't wait to see the rest!

Et si jamais tu as le temps pour un lunch, ou un café...I'm in too! Si ça ne dérange pas ton fan club de Montréal qui voudra inévitablement te voir ! ;)

Take care!

Re: grrreat!
They'll give us...er...a wrap party?

If I have time, I'll definitely give a shout. It would be oh so nice to see all the friendly Montreal faces again.

Beautiful, both of them.
Apr. 29th, 2009 08:02 am (UTC)
Thank you!
Apr. 29th, 2009 01:01 am (UTC)
Enjoy a nice naptime! And good luck with work!! :)

Also, I love both covers!! <3
Apr. 29th, 2009 08:02 am (UTC)
Naptime throughly enjoyed.

Thank you!
I tweaked #1 a bit. It works better than it used to.
Apr. 29th, 2009 03:00 am (UTC)
Excellent work! I hope you're feeling very proud of yourself, they should be. Who's doing your printing? POD or are you doing a bigger run? I use Lebonfon in Quebec to do my books, they have wonderful comic quality, but then i'm doing thousands at a time...
Apr. 29th, 2009 08:02 am (UTC)
It's going to be a relatively small run. I'm doing business with Transcontinental. They've had great service with me every time I did business with them. and they were cheaper than Quebecor.
Apr. 29th, 2009 03:22 am (UTC)
The covers are looking so good!
Apr. 29th, 2009 08:03 am (UTC)
Thank you!
Apr. 29th, 2009 05:13 am (UTC)
Woot! Looking good!
Apr. 29th, 2009 08:03 am (UTC)
Yum...cake icon.
Apr. 29th, 2009 10:07 am (UTC)
Hehe. That's my "Happy birthday" icon, which is what felt like the right icon to use. ^_^
Apr. 29th, 2009 10:08 am (UTC)
Aside from which, you know, Cake!Zhao, lol.
Apr. 29th, 2009 05:57 am (UTC)
That looks perfect :D I would love to buy the two books...
Apr. 29th, 2009 08:04 am (UTC)
Thanks! We'll talk about the books once I got them.
Apr. 29th, 2009 06:11 am (UTC)
Oh these look great! <3<3<3
Enjoy your day off and the afternoon nap! :3
Apr. 29th, 2009 08:04 am (UTC)
Thank you!
The day off was filled with personal work, but naptime was the best part of the day.
Apr. 29th, 2009 06:53 am (UTC)
The covers look great! I love them ^__^
Apr. 29th, 2009 08:05 am (UTC)
Thank you very much!
Apr. 29th, 2009 01:16 pm (UTC)
Definitely interested in them *_* Having the comic in paper is like a dream come true &hearts

Cheers with weird work schedules -o-
Apr. 29th, 2009 06:28 pm (UTC)
I think their math about days off needs a teeny bit of work. Still, afternoon naps are awesome.

Yay for the covers! They're looking fab. I love the use of blue and red and the contrast between action and introspection between the two. Also yay for saving of guest art!

Can't wait to have the books as a part of my collection. I'll be putting them right next to my Water Tribe mini-comic. :D
Apr. 29th, 2009 06:45 pm (UTC)
Love the covers! Especially the second book; I'm really diggin' those fish!
Apr. 30th, 2009 06:59 pm (UTC)
Gotta love the details in the covers, especially the fins of the fish. Something about white on black always gets me. And I'm seconding the love for the contrast between them. Zhoa's got one hellova srs face.
May. 1st, 2009 08:06 am (UTC)
Yey for days off!

But boo...cause I totally failed and missed out on sending you Water Tribe shnozz 8( Ah well...I still plan on doing fanart anyway x3
May. 1st, 2009 03:10 pm (UTC)
Can't wait! :D and I'm glad that you managed to squeeze everyone in. <3
oh, sleep. I'm glad for my dose of this little wonder, and try to enjoy it while it lasts.
And hah. People sometimes don't know how lucky they are to get in on daily basis...
May. 1st, 2009 11:53 pm (UTC)
the covers are SO GREAT. I didn't think I could be more excited, but now I am.
