EMPEROR B&W page 3



It's funny, I was chatting to JAn the other day and the comment he keeps getting from people is, "You and Jason are just so lucky!"

He then mentioned a quote from (we think) a tennis player who said, "Yeah it's funny... The more I practice the luckier I get."

If practice was luck, then every piece that I have posted here is about 10 hours worth of luck. That's a lot of luck.

So yeah, I guess I am pretty lucky.

Here's page 3 in black and white. Give it a couple days and you will see page 5... Hang in there.

Zero G is going slow but well. It's easily some of my best stuff. Some innovative design work and I'm getting great feedback on the performance of the characters too. It's not up to these pages in terms of technical work, but these pages took twice as long.

That quote seems to be attributed to Arnold Palmer, the golfer, a lot.

But it also seems to be a paraphrase of this quote from Thomas Jefferson.

"I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have."

Too true. I also found a bunch of other quotes which all say the same thing.

"Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity."
Seneca

"Luck comes to those who look after it."
Spanish Proverb

"There is no luck except where there is discipline."
Irish Proverb

"People always call it luck when you've acted more sensibly than they have."
Anne Tyler

Now you know why he writes and I draw the pretty pictures.

Sorry about the "obtuse" comment buddy. It's not what I meant. =)
