The first of Hal & Halbert’s “historic pics”
As the project is evolving we are learning with it. This has been an incredible tough month- Bruno went to live in China, so he had to take some days off to get used to his new land, and also we came to realize there were some problems in the development of Clown’s Secret and we had to rush in order to adapt. The two main problems that were happening were: milestones impossible to achieve; and a kind of lack of communication- as we work remotely it was easy to slip on this one. I decided to sit down and read the book Creativity, INC. by Ed Catmull- one incredible work regarding how to manage a creative team- and the result of reading this book couldn’t be better- we applied many of it’s concepts and now the work is much better than was before. New milestones were done, this time considering possible problems along the way- and we started using Basecamp- this way we can communicate and organize the project in a much easier manner.
Another thing I decided to start making this month is drawings of Hal & Halbert living in different historic scenes. It’s been a while that I imagine both of them doing things that are not connected to Clown’s Secret, as I believe that are many stories that could be told depicting them- and now from time to time I’ll show what I imagine to you. Starting on 25, august I made the first of these drawings- it’s an homage to The Great Moon Hoax, event of 1835.
Hope you enjoy it and also enjoy the others that will come.
