* What's your typical workday like? I know you've got more going on than AT and GG, obviously; do you timeshare between projects, or do you just narrow down on one until it's done?
I'm lucky, in that I get to do art 100% of the time, and I get to do all of it from home. Not alot of artists make it that far. Coloring Girl Genius is great steady work that pays my bills.
My day usualy goes like this...
I get up around 10 am (on a good day) -- if it's a crunch day (Sun,Tue,Thurs) I'll get to work finishing the next GG page this takes about 5 hours depending on how much I did the night before.
I aim to be done by 3 pm. After sending Phil and Kaja a low-rez copy via email (and getting the thumbs up on it) I zip up the page and upload it to their server. Then it's time to noddle out a thumbnail of the next ArcaneTimes or draw/ink one of the other freelance things I do -- currently I'm designing a set of miniatures for a new pre-painted table-top game.
I do this till about 7 or 8 pm -- then it's dinnertime and I'll either watch something recorded on my sweeeeeet DVR (100 gig harddrive and DVD burner) or pop in the latest Netflix (we are making our way though Veronica Mars season 1 right now).
By 11pm I'm back at the computer either preping the next peice or reading Forums.
ArcaneTimes itself never seems to get drawn untill Sunday around 1 or 2 in the morning. Eli will have gone to sleep by then. I'll pop in the soundtrack to "the Day the Earth Stood Still" and then use my Staedtler draftmans pencil with a 5h lead to layout the full size version of the strip at 10in by 13in. I usualy won't ink it the same night however, I save that till the next morning when I'm wide awake.
Either way, I crawl back in bed 'round 4am and go to sleep.

heh just kidding. ***hides the stack of naked Lex sketches***
