It feels so good to finally be creating again and not only am I creating, I am thoroughly enjoying doing it. I haven’t been able to say that in a very long time. I revisited “Don’t Make Me Come Down There” for some much needed rewrites and I must say that is has far exceeded even my wildest expectations. I am extremely proud to attach my name to it. I know I’m supposed to say that about everything I work on, but I can’t. I enjoyed writing “Blood Splatter”, but the sheer scope of the project was exhausting. The “Comicon and Convention Survival Guide” was a fun distraction, but ended up being drama because of the illustrator attached screwed me on another project forcing me to pull it and hire a new, albeit a better illustrator who actually drew what I asked. My shitty experiences with the Butch G. Cat project are well documented and I vow to never return to working in that environment again. Writing this was different than anything I’ve done before as it has all of me in it.
Over the past few months I’ve purged the vast majority of negativity from my life. Toxic friends, morally corrupt business partners, bad investments, and I feel like I can breathe again. I’m no longer treading water with no direction. I’ve just reached the 15 year milestone at my current job which is a huge achievement for me. I now look forward to the future and as soon as “Don’t Make Me Come Down There” is completely finished (one more read through) I will be starting on my next big project.
In the meantime, it’s COMICON WEEKEND!!!!! Photos to follow!
