So, that’s it. I’ll probably have to take a little time to reflect on things but I’d definitely do it again. I’m sure I’ll be posting much slower but I’ll have more(better?) things going up at my blog soon. Thanks.

Oh. That’s it? Thirty days already? Somehow the last two weeks just blurred past…
I’ll miss this concentrated burst of creativity, but I won’t mind re-claiming some of my day.
It has been a month of incredible output from all participants, and a real honour to post my work alongside everyone else’s each day.
I’m looking forward to announcing a show of some work and to hearing of similar announcements from others. Keep passing the word about Thirty Days Project.
Here’s to the next one!
Finishing my 30 days quietly, with another bird.
I think this has been good. Making something every day is important, though I’m not too happy with the majority of my days.
Thanks for the month — it’s been great seeing what everyone has made.
William Clark snored in his bed. His alarm sounded. He pressed SNOOZE and then pulled the tattered Star Wars comforter over his head. Sleep did not return quickly enough, and William lay there, trying not to count his breaths, willing himself to relax, smelling his breath hot against against his face, trapped by the bedclothes.
Outside his window, the birds chirped. The sun glowed through the comforter, and he could see Han Solo’s silk-screened face leering at him in reverse. William held his breath as long as he could, and then he exhaled again. Oh, it smelled awful.
Why did he listen to Drew? Cheetos and Jack Daniels were a terrible idea.

Well, this has been fun. I’ve learned an incredible amount, and exhausted myself. I’ve grown as a writer, and my time management skills have improved…a little bit. I’m actually a bit at sea as to what I’ll do with myself until next June.
Something will come along. It always does.
Thirtieth and final. I can’t quite believe I made it to the end. It has been great to see the tangible work stacking up. I also really liked seeing the progression of others’ work, following the various journeys through the challenge.
I have been wondering when I will pick up a brush again, I bet it won’t be tomorrow. Hopefully soon.
Bye-bye 30 Days Project, hello lots of new projects! I have enjoyed all the work that everyone posted!
Day 30 / June 39, 2011
4.5″ x 3″
Watercolor and ink on paper.
I can’t believe it’s already over, it was such a good creative experience!
Day 30! It’s been fun. Hopefully, next time I won’t be so busy, or maybe I’ll be so burdened with lucrative work that I’ll hafta look on in envy at all the other talented people doing this. Yeah, right…
It’s OVER! YAAAAY!
I mean…. I learned a lot. Far more than what I learned in December. I have drawn some of my best and worst comics this month and I will probably go further with some of them.
At some point in the next few days I’ll put all the comics for viewing on my main site(which people should check out if they’ve been following all these comics. I totally have a weekly webcomic). Until then, I had a great time writing all of these comics, even on the slow days(And still updated the Murderman on time) and I feel I still got a lot to learn.
Maybe I’m just ranting now. I’m done.
