Scribble scribble scribble clunk.

So I've been working on this project for a new client – it's going to be a big project, which is cool, but it's going to have to be built extremely quickly, which is slightly less than cool. In order to help determine the amount of time necessary to build the site (which has dynamic elements out the wazoo), I'm hand-drawing a set of bluelines. (Bluelines, for the uninitiated, are basically sketches of each page with notes as to what link goes where.) It's an awesome visualization tool, it (theoretically) takes a lot less time than HTML coding, and helps to get everyone on the same page as far as the scope of work is concerned. I'm having a ball doing it – it's been a while since I've hand-drawn anything and been able to bill for it – but I did this for almost seven hours so far today and I still have a long way to go yet tonight. Oy, my drawing hand!

The title of this post? That would be the sound of said hand falling off. :)
