I keep having to resist posting a rant on the FB group telling people what a piece of shit company they who shall not be named are (which I could do without mentioning what happened with LazyDreads). I was thinking this morning about the time they tried to crowd-source funds to make a Dreadlock documentary....... with a target of £50,000. Obviously they fell short of that (by over £49,000), but he who shall not be named chose a platform that does not require them to return any money pledged should it not succeed, so that £800 just went right into his pocket, no movie made. Free dosh!
Yeah it’s annoying they don’t realise we are the nice side of that coin. I bet most the Facebook group have no idea of dreadlock truths history. I saw the “kiss and make up comment” Just another selfie dreadlock page. Lovely sunny autumn day today. I’ve took myself out on a date with myself. Watching people in town as I laze. Besides lonely old men, I’m the only person sat alone. That’s ok, I have lots in common with me.
My god, it’s so boring here. I thought I might meet some folk to chat to. All I got is a grumpy man talking about hating the tori’s and labour and loving UKIP. I couldn’t be bothered to argue. Guess I’ll plod home. It’s so hard to meet people, I’m like a melting icicle that people keep away from stepping in. A friendly icicle.
Bit grey here today but yesterday had a bit of sun, too
I am learning SO MUCH in the course of drawing this comic, I can't tell you. And I don't particularly mean just because of the source material, but I feel like my development as an artist has been switched on to 5x the speed that I was going at before.
I'll tell you what it is..... up until this point, I felt like I was chasing a goal that was forever getting away from me and worrying about whether each artistic choice I made was taking me in the right direction. Now it's more about relishing the challenge; I feel challenged and that's when I'm at my best.
My sister drives me crazy. She offered me a car I didn’t know I wanted. So I said ok, that’d be cool, but you’ll get it back when you pass your test. So I started planning some road trips, then she said ‘oh I gave the car to a friend instead’. Like I didn’t want the car to begin with but you then made me think I was getting it. And the other day she asked if I’d take her on a hike/ walk. ‘Yeah sure. ‘ so I planned a route and sat waiting. Eventually called her. Her reply ‘oh I forgot, no I’m not in the mood’. I didn’t even want to go walking with you but you made me plan it. No it fine. Have a nice day. Silently seething.
