This has been working pretty well as a way to quickly look over my current projects and decide what to work on in any particular day.
The left window's a search for everything I've tagged as being "in progress" The right one's a search for things tagged as both "in progress" and "commission". All sorted by last modification date so whatever I've been working on lately is at the top. With big icon previews so I can see what's what.
Client: "Peggy can I give you some money to draw the heck out of 'the #Utena intro except they are hors'."
Me: "very the yes, I love my fuckin' job so much"
I did this back in April and am only uploading this just now, I really gotta spend a day catching up on posting commissions. I think this one was for @monsterblue? I should keep track of that sort of stuff in the files along with my timing log.
Where'd this come from? This sure wasn't on my bookshelf yesterday.

Well that's an hour of work spent on bringing this 2016 model sheet up to my 2022 standards. And changing a few bits because I felt like it.I'll have to redraw Chlöe's hair on the page I posted to Patreon the other day but that should be pretty trivial.
I also gotta set up styles for their dance outfits, that's probably another half hour at least. Then I can draw most of the rest of the comic at pretty high speed.
What keeps on installing Maxon Cinema 4D in /Applications. I have never downloaded this thing.
Some cursory searching suggests it comes along with After Effects. Wheee.
Maybe I should remove the eight-year-old version of Illustrator, too. I doubt I'm ever gonna need that. Maybe I'll wait until it's a decade old, "I have ten years of old versions of Illustrator sitting on my hard drive" feels weirdly right for me.
I was looking through my drive and I found this half-roughed comic from 2016. Still looks good. Maybe I'll finish it soon.
I threw the full 13p thing up on Patreon, if you want a preview. https://www.patreon.com/posts/67566048
I am impressed at how much I dislike this simple three-word sentence that appeared in my inbox this morning.
Designers wanking over the most deliberately boring font in existance, AND putting it on the world's most inefficient database? Yeah no thanks. Unsubscribing from these MyFonts emails that I rarely look at anyway.
I am also playing almost blind, the sun coming in the windows is washing out the image projected on the Magic Painting. This made for a kind of delightfully immersive experience while delving a dungeon; the Starlight spell gave me JUST enough bright blue light to see what was going on, and when it ran out the lantern was there to make things barely visible in red tones. This lead to some pleasantly tense moments while dodging enemies I could one-hit kill.
