SYAC - Deadline Part 2 by TomPreston SYAC - Deadline Part 2 by TomPreston
Read the next episode of “So, You’re A Cartoonist?” here: [link]

***

I don't think a lot of people realize how much work goes into making a single comic strip. This comic is pretty simple so I can work out a bunch of pages in a short while, but the bigger books I work on are not as forgiving...

EDIT: Sometimes I'm amazed at how the line between fantasy and reality are blurred by the internet. Just so I can put this on the record, this series of "Deadline" comics is not based on events currently happening to me right this second. It's a comic people, not a chronicle of day to day occurrences.

so, 11 and a bit pages per day... yep, definitely screwed. Actually, just out of curiosity, whats the max amount of pages would you be able to make in a day and still be in reasonable quality?

I understand that. In 2 weeks, I'm going to a con. How many pages am I still left with? I'm thinking over 100.

I do that with my girl friend too. I procrastinate, then I'm up till the crack of dawn trying to get things done, and she has to come and peel my limp form off of my desk "I told you to work on it sooner."

I feel your pain. It comes in the form of many essays.
