Good idea (never hurts to have some more "edufication" to make yourself more marketable) and good luck Tom!

My wife and I went on our first cruise ( through the western Caribbean) in Dec. Booked our second to Alaska for this June.
I've been working on drawing cartoon/comic commissions for the past couple of months, got a upcoming paying storyboard job that should start any time now. Was supposed to do a 6 page intro comic story for a local fan magazine, but had to withdraw because of the other work. Still going to do it for a subsequent issue, and then lead into an actual first issue for the book itself. Will see how things go.

I had to truncate my previous update a bit.
The commissions I've been working on are a inked image for a charity auction, with the theme being "literary characters or heroes". I got a list of possibles from the client on this, and didn't really feel excited about them--truth be told I was feeling lazy and they all felt like too much work. So I picked two "easy" characters: a meet-up between Winnie the Pooh and Paddington Bear. The client was pleased with the idea and the image.
That dovetailed into a series of images I've been working on the last two weeks for another client--a small paying job for a colouring book for a local heritage building "safari" project. The client wanted a caricature of herself to be the cartoon mascot for the book, so a series of the character in certain situations, poses and costumes. Should be done this one in a day or so--have about a half dozen images left to do on it.
The third thing in the midst of all this was done last week, just in time for a FB friend to print them off and take them to a convention: Joelanta--in Atlanta, Georgia. I did some design sketches to start development on a private go at reviving Big Jim--Mattel's sports/action/adventure figure from the mid 70's. But this time around he'll be 12" tall......and Mattel has NOTHING to do with this project. See, we discovered that Mattel had let numerous trademarks lapse for Big Jim, and my friend snatched them up. He's had a prototype figure made, and showed it and a handful of my sketches at a panel at the con. Now we are slowly developing a more modern take on the characters.
This is going to be a limited run of stuff, likely sold privately and not be a retail chain thing--but we'll see where it goes.

After that, unless the paying storyboard work comes in, I'll probably jump back on the comicbook project I mentioned. I have rough thumbailed out the 6-pager--but I want to take another look at it and revise some things. I have the thumbs all on one page, but I'm going to re-do them 2 to a page and tighten them up more there to work out the potential problems.
Then the transfer to the bristol board pages will just be straight drawing and no problem solving. And seguing from that will be in time for the next cruise, most likely.
Unless the phone rings with more work.
