Drew the scene and character today – was pleased, to use the redraw of Jim Lee study of Storm, and have it come out looking better than I expected*. ( I expect to be getting alot of studio work done Thur – next Tues**).
*( was very productive- got up early; did martial arts, drew in the studio all day. )
**( tomorrow I participate in a family event)
Yesterday I calculated – If I win the Crime Suspense #22, at $2,500 ( low probability*** ) – I can actually probably pay* for it, in the meantime, and get it,****I won’t be occupied anymore with auctions, and began enjoying uninterrupted studio work today. ( felt the vintage Pre-Code Horror posts, should be actual pre-code horror. )
*( by their 30% down payment, and 3 installments: but I would have to sell 7 $400-$500 CGCs, I already have**). Because I filed my tax return by paper ( required, because I had an Earned Income Credit) – I likely won’t get the Economic Impact Payment ($1,200) until Sept 2020, or next year.
**Had the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance website in my state, not been designed on a structure, (admittedly design intentionally to frustrate latino migrant workers, to give up trying and return to work), I would have had enough to pay for everything I found at auction; so it’s my fault for assuming the government would live up to it’s declarations in a timely fashion ( 2 months, still nothing).
***the previous bidders, probably don’t want to push the price higher, until the very end, to take it to near the market selling price: $3,200 ( is available at mycomicshop for a Cgc 4.5) – and on ebay, the latter is offered for $3,500; with several other copies ( more that I saw last year or the year before), 3.0 Cgc and below.
**** – nonetheless, the commission offer is preferable.
Thanks for supporting the Lurid Max , Pre -Code Renaissance, endeavor – I look forward to creating the best work I can: in illustrations, comics, scripts/stories, video game, voice overs, and soundtracks.
Your kind patronage is genuinely inspiring, and much appreciated!
Be safe! Have a Great week!
