Anyway, I sat in front of my computer for a moment, and just wanted to hear something dark, ya' know? I thought immediately, "Nebraska," Bruce Springsteen's 5-star murky, storytelling masterpiece, and I just needed to hear those sharp, echoing, howls of his...like calls in the inky darkness of endless, black highway. Listened to it over and over again while I drew something. It's been awhile.
I have been busy, and busy, and busy again, turning myself into a sliver, like a pencil pushed into an electric sharpener for too long, until all the wood has been shaved away and only a stub is left. Tired, baby. I'm so grateful for the cold. I'm ready to hibernate.
