What a year.
It was one of the best, yet worst years I’ve experienced in a great many years.
Professionally, I can say that it was more draining than rewarding.
There was lots of personal growth. The typical losing myself and finding myself stuff that ends up sounding cliché. In the end, it’s a matter of losing focus.
Recently I’ve put too much faith and responsibility for my direction in the hands of others and it’s simply just ended up kicking me in the teeth.
2011 will be different. This year I look to start laying down a bit of my own path and a bit of that process has already begun in the form of a new side project.
I know I’ve threatened before, but I’ve actually begun a new comics project with writer @jonesylovesbeer (seen above) that has already proven to be rather interesting in its beginning stages. Our only goal (for now) is to finish the first issue and then see where the winds take us. It was officially announced on the formidable podcast - NERDCAST.ORG, and you can listen to the big news here. (it’s just after the spectacular Keyboard Cat intro- at not quite the first quarter mark)
I will start marking the process for the new project on here, but I’ve already begun over at my twitpic collection. You can see some samples below:
From there, who knows? 2011 will bring some interesting twist and turns as all years do, but it will be my ‘bend and don’t break’ resolve that will make it a success. The obstacles from the previous years have been set. I’ll just have to do some stretching to make those hurdles.
All in all, things are certainly looking up and I’m super excited to view the results.
Here’s to an awesome New Year to you and yours.
