2 scans, 20 cleans, 65 colors, 80 pages, total = 167.
What does that all mean? That's the way I count the different steps of the production process on the book. 2 scans means there are only 2 scans left to do. As I mentioned last week, I don't own those particular comic strips any more so I am waiting on the owners to send me hi-resolution scans of those comics. 20 cleans means that there are only 20 strips left to be cleaned, which should be done by this weekend. 65 colors means there are 65 comic strips that need to be colored. It might sound like a lot but considering there were 173 strips originally, I'm just about 2/3 done. 80 pages means there are 80 page layouts to do. That also might sound like a lot but in reality laying out the pages is the easiest and quickest of all the steps, so that will go by fast.
Finally the total is all the numbers added together, representing all the items I had to handle in the process of producing this book. I started with a total of 619 items! So being at 167 is looking pretty good right now. Hopefully all these numbers will be at 0 within the next few days!
There is a counter on the website where I update the work in progress, so check in and watch the numbers shrink!
