I turned 40 yesterday. The start of a new decade should come with the start of something new.
I will be using this blog to is keep me on task in creating a comic book. A comic book written and illustrated by me.
I have shared a lot of art over the years and created much more. I have done a good deal of commissioned work, from game concept art to character pinups and complete comics. I've collaborated on character designs and comics. This is all well and good, but I really want to get my own ideas and creations out into the world.
I have often said that “I want to make my own comic” or that "I'm working on a comic," and that is true... but following through on that pronouncement has been difficult. Between work, family and constantly taking on commissions, I have left little time to pursue my own work in any sort of focused manner.
The majority of my un-shared art, and a number of pieces I have shared, have all been in the pursuit of creating my own book. Heroes & villains. Gods & monsters. Locations. Technologies. Plots. Twists. Stories.
I plan on using this space to keep on task and bring an idea to completion. Even if no one reads it, it will be nice to have a place to report my progress and archive my thoughts on this process.
