I've been working on a couple of different stories these last few months. One story showed itself to be completely too complicated (thank you brain). I'm quite experienced at drawing but not so much with writing so I've been flexing that muscle as much as possible lately. It's a big challenge - sometimes aggravating. The best (and often only) way for me to get through roadblocks while writing is to take a walk. It clears the mind and the motion just does something to get the ideas to float up. It's the best feeling when the idea sparks in your mind. But then you have to make the idea flow across 32 pages, all the while supporting (and maybe subverting) the story with the illustrations. Brewing magic in the combo of words and pictures is the aim.
