Total cop out

I haven’t been making comics. Well, that’s not entirely true, I haven’t been finishing comics. I’ve got a few half penciled or half inked pages lying around that I don’t think I’m going to bother to finish. I’ve also got a bunch of pages written that I’m not going to draw. Just… yeah, I just don’t want to draw those.

Things have been a little crazy in my life over the last couple of months. I’ve been trying to make big decisions and implement big changes.

Probably the biggest thing that is changing for me is that I’m going to be moving back to Toronto in a couple of weeks. This is great for a lot of reasons. I’m excited to be back around my old artist friends who always motivate me to get better at everything I do, There’s a great community of comicers and zinesters to surround myself with, I am going to be able to turn my room into a super awesome studio And, most importantly, the vegetable roti at Mother India (so good!).

However, as happy as I will be to be back in Toronto I am still going to miss the people I’ve come to know (and love!) here in Ottawa. I will be back for visits, I know, but it’s just not going to be the same. Lisa is also staying in Ottawa so for the time being I’m just going to have to miss the hell out of her.

This decision has been stressful but I’m definitely on the upward swing. I know it will be tough in some respects but, overall, I think it’s going to be really productive for me on both a personal and an artistic level.

I have a handful of projects that I’m excited to finally get to. I’ve been doing some writing in my sketchbook again. I’ve got some things down that I actually want to talk about and get out there.

Expect to see more comics soon.

Dude, I totally understand where you are, artistically. I have a bunch of stuff laid out and drawn or whatnot and things have been so crazy I just can't finish anything. You're not alone, brother.
