I completed my fine arts degree, but not Gus, which became a much larger project than I anticipated. It was put on hold as I took on freelance work and tried to give my animation career some momentum.
I continued developing story ideas, including At the Hour. It didn’t develop much. I merely addressed some criticisms the short story received. I knew the idea was strong, but I wasn’t sure how to make the most of it.
Career opportunities turned out to be few and far between, and as the year came to a close, I decided I would put Gus back into production.
Gus became my priority, and I took on teaching work at a university. I kept adding to my list of ideas, but found my thoughts were often drawn to At the Hour.
It wasn’t long before I started to get excited about At the Hour, creating pages of ideas that may be useful, but I refused to start a new production until Gus was completed.
Little did I know, Gus would take many more years to complete.
