I've just finished and delivered the last page of a book I've been working on for a quite lot of time on and off (you've seen some teaser panel here and there). After scanning the last page I've checked all the pages (and lay-out and sketches and piece of paper and...) before pulling it in storage (sounds a lot like Ghostbusters-thing) and thinked: "Ok... now I take this pile of horrible pages, set it on fire and draw it all over again... but BETTER!". Who of you that is into the creative thing knows it's normal, after doing each panel you think you should do it again... better and the panels became pages and after doing each page you think you should do it again... better and the pages became a book and... you got it! The thing get even more annoying when you did all the pencils first and then you go with inks, so, when you finished the pencils of the last page and take on the first one to start the inking you look at it and think: "who's the dumbass who did this horrible thing?" then realize were you and think it looks like you did it forever ago, when you were barely able to hold a pencil (and you STILL are barely able to hold a pencil). Then you ink the last page and looking at the first one inked you think... a lot of bad things (to be fair). But the deadline's over (good or bad?). I hope to see the lettered pages soon.

Ok... time to get to work again. I've a script waiting for me, just a few pages but I hope to get it done before leaving for the New York Comic-Con.
