The Comic, Page 2

The boss did suggest/request minor changes to the script here and there but, for the most part, he was happy with the results. The main reason that the comic never got published was lack of time and changing attentions. I didn’t have a lot of time to draw at work with my other duties so work on the final art was slow to start and slower to progress. My boss isn’t good at working long form projects. Anything that can’t be pulled together in a few meetings or work sessions will get set aside for something more interesting. The more time that passed without concrete results the more his attention turned to marketing projects that could be produced and distributed quickly.

I’m okay with that. I prefer to use my art skills outside my day job.

  1. Speaking of short attention spans, I remember the Strategy of the Month, presented at the Monthly Staff Meeting. Smile, nod, forget, repeat next month.

    Sometimes I felt like I was the only one engaged in those meetings: you had your drawings, KP et al were engrossed in their laptops, MG usually had a kid or two. The Boss would inevitably zone out and start responding to his email whenever I would be talking about something.

    Pretty distracting, and disrespectful to boot. A good lesson of how not to act in a meeting – The Boss also used to do this in client meetings, which used to drive me extra crazy.

  2. Our weekly client meeting are still pretty fractured attentionwise but they go quickly. They’re primarily to give updates on clients that we have regular maintenance appointments with. I ask what’s happening, what I need to follow up on, what I need to remind a tech about and then I move on to discussing the next client. I try to keep the meeting to less than an hour so the guys can get out and do some billable work.

  3. Good for you. Sounds like you’re taking more of a lead in that area, which was sorely needed.
