Hello Internet. I hope everyone is doing well. I can't really say I'm doing well because so far 2014 has been terrible for me. It's been a domino effect of bad things sense January first for me and members of my family and , while the bad luck has subsided, it's was deafeningly a series of events that would test anyone Will power. during that time, I started to reevaluate my life. I was laying in bed at night thinking about where I came from, where I am now and where I want to be. I've come to the conclusion that I'm falling into the same trap that some of my family members have fallen into. Basically, trying to make a better life for themselves, hitting a roadblock and giving up. Anyone who knows me well enough knows that this is not something I do. If there's a problem I take a step back and think about how to solve it instead of just giving up but for some reason I'm not looking at life like that right now.
Despite that I'm not the type to mope around, not for long anyway, so I decided that the best way to put myself on the right track is to start a few projects that I have in mind.
The first concerns the recent poll I started on my page. Vintage pinup art is how I became interested in fine art and I've wanted to recapture that interest for awhile now so I've decided to make a series of pinup art staring my female characters. Not only will you get art but there will be a story with it as well. The setting will be a Victoria's Secret style fashion show, maybe a charity event that all of my ladies are asked to participate in but that's all I know about the story side of it right now but I would like to know what you guys think of Hailey, Sophia and Gertude, along with my Paragon Academy characters Rose and A still yet to be seen character, walking the runway and striking poses in different type of wings while weird stuff happens backstage? sounds like something you could get into?
I'm going to start gathering reference for the art today but if anyone know any don't be afraid to send them to me.
But moxiee, you're thinking, you said projects. as in more then one!
I know and I'm about to tell you the other one if you give me a second
I think I mentioned this last year but I want to make a graphic novel. I have an idea for it, that I won't go into right now because the internet is full of thieves, but I have this tiny little problem of never making a full 20 page comic so trying to pump out a 300+ page graphic novel might be a little over my head right now. I'm going to start small, maybe post a few things here to test a few ideas, but I think it's smart not to jump into a graphic novel right away.
And........ you know what? I have a Ford Mustang sitting in my Uncles garage. I'm going to go over there and get it back. Why should I drive a Honda when I have a Mustang.
EDIT = A little Chaos won the poll for Hailey's band name so now I have to think about the name of Sophia's show.
EDIT PART 2 THE WRATH OF KAHN = Writing this just made me happier.
