“Every aspect of who you are as a human – every capability is degraded, impaired, when you lose sleep.”
I know that lack of sleep is a big problem in the comics industry. Huge work loads plus short deadlines usually means that sleep gets compromised. But sleep is important.
Give this a read and see if any of the points listed here effect you. My grandmother died of Alzheimer’s, it might be in my own blood, and every time I read an article about the health risks of losing sleep, it terrifies me to think that for every hour I work past midnight I might be erasing my own brain, and working myself into an early grave. This is something that a lot of us really need to take seriously, because making our deadlines simply isn’t worth that.
Take care of yourselves.
