Words don’t ring truer right now.
Things are rough right now.
Things are exciting right now.
Yes, it’s both, like the weather.
We’re supposed to be under a tropical storm warning right now, and it’s actually quite nice outside. It rained like hell Saturday but yesterday and today were a breezy just gracious time.
In all instances, what the fuck.
I’m at a downward slope right now. Money is lean, work is leaner, and I don’t see an end anytime soon. This is the freelance artist life, for sure. It’s liberating and great but isolating and means. Nothing is worse than to feel unloved and stupid.
That being said, I know I’m doing things right. Everything is simmering. So many great plans are coming through, and more things are being made. I’m on the verge. As always, the verge of something. This is what the mad scientist feels, right before the monster wakes. In all this, I’ve never woken up happier and gone to sleep better. Yes, I worry. I worry like mad. It’s one of those things where you are almost destitute but you found a gold mine.
So yeah there is that.
I’m good, all is well. It’s just crazy from up here, guys.
I will be at HEROESCON AA48 , June 15th-17th! Come out and pick a sneak preview of REZ vol.2 issue 1 and my new Sketchbook! My first one! I also have commissions open for Sketch covers and cards, plus original art. I should have a good amount of painting done by then!
Also working on issue 2 of the second Volume of Tommy too. Like I said, some awesome shit coming down the pipeline.
So, that’s all for now, and I leave you with this: Live your life. It’s all you have. Everything else is rented.
