What is this style shift? Yes, you're still reading The Quest to Find Blueentity but this is a redone page! There are a few pages here in the beginning that I have intended to redo, I just haven't gotten around to updating pages until now. Please enjoy this updated version of page 14!

((P.S. If you really want to see the old version, click here: Original Page 14)) ORIGINAL RANT I did not want to draw the comic this week. I was far too distracted with other projects and temptations that I wanted to do instead. I have done a fair bit of writing this week, both on the computer and in a journal, trying to get my thoughts straightened out. I also want to keep playing Tibia and another RP game, Aveyond.

. But, as I kept going through this whole spiel of ‘I don’t want to draw today!’, all I kept thinking about was a quote that I had read in a book a long time ago, called The Shadow Portrait, by Gilbert Morris:

“A man knows the plumbing’s got to be fixed. He doesn’t wait until he feels like fixing it. He just get down and finds out what’s the matter, and he keeps working until it’s fixed. So, when I start painting, no matter how hard it gets, I just keep on going. You know, some of the best things I’ve ever done have come when I didn’t feel it. I struggled, but I kept going until I finished.”

I have never intended to treat drawing the comic as a job, but I suppose that there are days where I must treat it like one! On the days that I don’t feel like planning and drawing the comic, I must sit down and do the work! God even showed me this verse in the Bible:

“David also said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid on discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service of the temple of the Lord is finished.” (I Chronicles 28:20)

Whew, I did not mean to give a sermon today, but I needed to hear all of this so badly this week. God will not fail me! Sometimes, I look at my script for QFB, and I feel utterly overwhelmed at the work ahead of me, but my Father promised to never fail or forsake me! W00t!

Off topic: My son watched Finding Nemo today. Why is it that no matter how many times I see that movie, I always get choked up and want to cry? I know part of it has to do that I am a parent and I emphasize with Marlin a lot, but seriously, I’ve seen the movie at least a hundred times! Oh well, I guess the movie makers did their job right, eh?

Have a great weekend!
