I should have posted the Dreaded Deadline Demon yesterday, as I spent a good portion of the day sitting in my NYC hotel room finishing the color for the “Halloween Party” poster image on my laptop. It takes a good deal longer for me to use the regular Wacom tablet as I am now so used to (and spoiled by) the Cintiq. Since I posted the penciled version some days back, here’s the final in color:
It’s nothing spectacular, just another job “in the can”. I don’t know if I felt bad about missing the Empire State Building tour and walking about New York with Anna and the kids, or if I felt lucky sitting in the air conditioned hotel??á¬¨‚Ä†instead of the 100 degree oven that was Manhattan yesterday. I know one thing I did not miss about a sweltering summer day walking around the Big Apple: the stench. Let me tell you, every breath you inhale on a day like that in New York City is an adventure. You would think that the air would eventually reach a saturation point with regard to offensive odors, but “Eau d’?¬©t?¬© New York” is the gift that keeps on giving. Just when you think it can’t get any worse you walk through a cloud of noxious fume that reaches new heights.
Back home now in pleasantly cool and sweet smelling Minnesota. Our trip was a lot of fun, especially the “Harry, Carrie and Garp” event last night. I’ll post a review of that tomorrow.
