P 180-181


This week was hectic for being the week before a 3 day weekend.  Everything was falling out of the sky at work.  On top of that I was having one of those nervous breakdown weeks when it came to drawing.  

Whenever this happens I am reminded of an interview with Shane Carruth, the creator of the films Primer and Upstream Color.  His first film Primer he made for under $7,000 but during the process of putting it together he had nervous breakdowns almost every three weeks.  So much to the point of possibly scrapping what he already finished due to the stress.

 My remedy for this is to not look at the work until it is whole and done.  Instead of tossing everything I recall what Craig Thompson said at a book reading.  Things become clearer perspective-wise once you finish the work- but you must finish the work first.
