Captain Trips Redux

billyargh
Just a couple of weeks after recovering from some unspecified crud, Grey and I are both flat on our backs again with a cold/flu/plague. I don't think I have ever downed so much Alka-Seltzer and Nyquil in my life. I'm a little better today and trying to catch up on urgent correspondence, but forgive me if it takes a bit.

Which reminds me: An author recently solicited me to do a book cover and possibly interior illustrations for their novel. I wrote back expressing interest, and they sent me more information on their book. I was still considering -- leaning toward taking the job -- when they withdrew the offer because I hadn't answered their second e-mail quickly enough. We're talking a matter of three or four days, not weeks. At first I felt bad, but then I realized that I have always been a terrible correspondent and probably wouldn't have worked well anyway with someone who requires a level of e-punctuality I cannot deliver. I quite like the idea of doing illustrations, though.

You and Caitlin doing something, then. I can't be the only one who's thought of that. Maybe see if that kind of collaboration might work.

People like that piss me off. Apparently they were supposed to be the center of your universe? Whatever. * eye roll* Soon as I get my shit back in order this year, I'm commissioning some artwork from you. No rush, either!

Yuck about the crud. Folks around here have gotten sick, recovered, and gotten sick with something else, too. Get well again!

I think the book cover/illo thing worked out the way it was supposed to, however disappointing the offer withdrawal. My two cents.

Would you be interested in doing illustrations for albums or singles?

Surely! (But don't call me Shirley ... )
