Pulling Strings

Not much creativity happened in the last few days so I didn't have much to blog about yesterday. I was going to start laying down tracks for the OilCan Drive album but realized I hadn't played guitar in any serious way in a week or two. So, I decided I'd spend the day with the guitar in my hands loosening up a bit.

But, I couldn't just sit on the couch and play guitar while I watched TV all day (only part of the day). So, I hit the computer and started scanning in and cleaning up some of the new artwork I'd inked over the holidays.

With guitar on lap I scanned the art and started laying it out into the last few pages needed to complete the interior of the new OilCan Drive book. It was nice to be able to play guitar and do something with my hands as I stared at the screen and made decisions on the layouts of the new pages. All in all, it was a good day and my hands are feeling loose and ready to play.

And, I even came up with a new riff that could be the nugget of a new OilCan Drive song.

So, yeah, a good day indeed.

A little hello from France :)

Always nice to read your chronicles :)

I'm a person who thinks a lot - some say I think too much - and I always appreciate persons who seem to think a lot, too. And I guess you're one of them.

See you !

Thanks Manu! It's always great to meet a kindred spirit and a big thanks for following my blog.

I always have a lot of things going on in my head. I usually feel that me being creative isn't me pushing to make something but more the idea that I'm just trying to get these voices and ideas out of my head to share with the world.

Have a great New Year!
