Please Don’t Punch Meon April 12, 2012 at 15:33
So it’s been almost a month and I still haven’t updated the comic, as you may have noticed. Things haven’t really changed since my last blog post. Still crazy busy at school, still struggling to keep up. What art I’ve done outside of class work has been for personal enjoyment just to maintain sanity. I’m writing this post after just getting back from the hospital, actually. I had to take my girlfriend to the ER after a severe asthma attack. But it turns out she’ll be okay, so that’s good.
I have the new page drawn and inked. I’ve just been so burned out on digital art at the moment, that I haven’t been able to bring myself to color it. I’m taking a graphic design class that I finally admitted that I kinda hate. I was hesitant before, being that I am a graphic design major and would call into question why I’m in school at the first place. I’m currently at a crossroads where I’m trying to decide whether or not to tough it out and get my degree (which I’m really close to getting), or just cut my losses and accept that I’m a college drop out and pursue a career in an art field that I actually want to do. What I want to do is draw comics and work as a studio artist.
Either way, if I do decide to go on with school, I will definitely not be taking as heavy of a work load again.
As for the comic, I will probably keep it on hiatus until my semester is over (May 10th). By that point, I’ll probably just do one big update with multiple pages to make up for it.
Like I said, I have the next page drawn and the next several written. I know specifically which direction I want to take the story. I just don’t have the time or capacity to get it done right now and it frustrates the crap out of me.
I have other comic projects I want to pursue as well, but I don’t want to get them started until I get Starcrossed to a place where I’m happy with it.
In the meantime, I can’t wait until next month. I’ve had the worst case of insomnia ever. Haven’t had a full night’s sleep in about a month now.
So first, sleep. Next, update this effin’ comic!
