I'm not sure I'm sticking with this new look for the blog-- I haven't figured out how to add links but for at least the next week I'm going to forge ahead with this version.
Yesterday was an interesting day. I sent off the final pages of WEREWOLVES to my publisher in North Carolina, had lunch at the newly renovated and now spectacular SAKARA TOKYO which has a buffet I hesitate to tell you about because it's already crazy crowded.
Getting back to the studio I had every intention of wrapping up three important assignments-- a CD Cover for a great Jazz Musician, and two important illustrations for clients. I had every intention-- because amidst all this life sometimes gets in the way. The UPS guy arrived with preview copies of DRACULA with it's fancy new cover and revamped interior pages and as I opened the box of 25 books I noticed the blacks-- which is probably pretty important in a Dracula book-- are splotchy and gray! Absolutely awful.
The printer needed photographs so they could figure out if the problem was on their end-- I knew it was instantly because the streaks were in every book but they weren't exact-- telling me it was in their printing process.
I'll let you know how I make out with them, including naming names, a good printer stands by its work. I have confidence they will too.
I did make the decision to go back to Netflix since I can watch the instant plays while I'm working without the hassle of picking out a DVD from our collection.
Today's another day-- I've got meetings and workshops and then a charity event this evening, but I'm going to try and accomplish a lot anyway.
