It's even worse than usual this time, mainly because I'm not entirely certain whether I'll be coming back or not. What knick-knacks, do-dads and comfy memories can I afford to leave behind? I keep lifting the bag and wondering whether I've hit the 50 pound limit yet (I don't have any scales).
It's going pretty slowly actually, oddly enough it's the little things I find myself most drawn to and unwilling to part with. My Alex Ross designed Superman statue, my Conan statue (my toys in general), various books I've picked up and been given by friends, and hard-to-find DVD's ( hard to find back home anyway) that are basically comfort for the soul, The Witches, The Lost Boys, The Goonies, my A-Team collection.
It's strange because I feel compelled to go on a mad buying spree just to pick up the geek bare necessities that might be hard to find back home, but I know that's a waste of money.
I'm not looking forward to when it finally hits me that I'll be leaving the best group of friends I've ever had.
Anyway, not much to show in the way of art, but hopefully my next update will show the first image of a character I've been working on lately, Jupiter Jonah, Spacefaring African. Still a lot of design work left to go, but that's the fun part.
