The 66 Kid Is Nine Signatures In

February 28, 204
  Hard to believe it's been nine weeks since we started on our quest to turn in 16 pages a week on "The 66 Kid" project. Today, Signature 9 is due and we have it all but done, save a couple tweaks, nips and tucks, here and there. Here is my view of the project this morning:

Command Central at 7 a.m. this morning. Nine signatures in the can, three to go!

   That's an unfinished gouache of Good Ol' Ben Rux, at bottom, right. Hoping to finish it and several other paintings before the deadline (March 22) so I can trade up, from inferior images I have already placed in the document. Of course, this is an endless game, and if I didn't have the drop dead deadline, I would be trading up until the cows come home, or dementia sets in.

"If it wasn't for deadlines, nothing would get done."
