So I've been super busy...and i wish i wasn't. As you've seen i've posted a 2 pages of my final comic from my class. I have also started coloring a piece of fan art but that's roughly it right now.
See, i was informed by my psychologist to not be in my mother's house much this summer. He says that it's not healthy for me to stay dormant this summer as last summer it sent me into a VERY bad depression. However, my options kind of eliminated themselves before the summer as a lot of my friends who i was planing on staying with had something happen, and there for had no place for me. So! I went with my other plan: Head to Kansas and help my father and sister clean out and repair their house to get it ready to sell.
However, before that point, I have been keeping busy. Did some house sitting, working on my Jr. review comic. Got some concept art for that that i'll post here soon enough. I've been hanging out with as many people as i can, even traveling out of town for a few days to see a friend. When I'm home, i try to keep busy. I've been mostly working on thinning out my belongings since graduation is next year and i'll need to find a place to live as well as work so when I move out I would like to have as little as possible to go through when I do move. I take occasional breaks and get on tumblr or facebook but other than that my internet time has been cut a good bit to keep myself out of depression.
On Sunday i'll be heading to my fathers and will spend the first week clearing out the spare room to give me a space to work while i'm there on my jr review/ my next comic. It's going to be a three part comic done completely by hand with every part being around 20-30 pages. My goal is to have a part and a half done by jr review, and then the whole thing done by senior show. So i'm afraid my plan for conventions is pretty much blown by this point. But! hopefully, i'll at least have something other than comic work done in the future.
I really want to slow down but i'm afraid if i do i'll fall behind. That became very clear recently to me when I actually thought about the workload i had. So all that's left to do is to head on and try and get things done
Other than that, prepare to see some more comic pages (if you're still interested) and hopefully i'll keep myself sane this summer as well as productive!
Wish me luck!
