Hi John,
As a long time forum member, I've seen in the past where you have shared kind of what your average day is like. I've always been impressed a how you seem to keep fairly 'regular' hours and I felt this discipline is one contributor to your success.

I haven't seen anything like this in a while and I was curious what an average day is like for you now days.

Do you draw multiple pages of Elsewhens per day?

Do you draw outside of Elsewhens?

Thanks,
Scott

I draw one page of ELSEWHEN each day, seven days a week. I could do more, but I just… don’t. So I start at 8am (still), and finish usually around 10:30am. Then I just… goof off!

Sometimes I go back to the drawing board in the mid-afternoon for varied periods of time, but the 8 to 4 routine, I think is gone.

I do have a TOP SECRET (no, really, don’t even ask) project coming up that will probably occupy my afternoons for a couple of weeks, but that’s nothing like a new precedent.

Wow. That shift seems like a big deal, from 8 to 4 to so much less time drawing.

Did it feel like a big deal?

I don't keep up with Elsewhen daily because I prefer reading it in chunks. But I noticed a double-splash is "one page" in your schedule. Does it take much longer to complete?

••

Usually about an hour longer than a regular page.

When I go without working for a prolonged period, I refer to myself as "unemployed".

I've found that when someone says they are "retired" and then start working again, there is an annoying torrent of "But I thought you were RETIRED" chirps from the peanut gallery, while coming back from "unemployment" is cheered.

Also, there is no AGE stigma on "unemployed".

We benefit from what keeps falling out of that pencil. Thanks.
