NaNoWriMo in April? Sure

I'm doing it again...writing 50,000 words in a month.

Well I hope so anyway.

This time the goal is for NightLander. I completed Lil' Red but I think that was just a novel test run to see if I could stay dedicated (I did! I surprised myself!) Anyway, I REALLY need to get this story out for my own personal reasons. Also, if I write it out I'll have a more stable outline for the story rather than just random scenes that pop up in my head as I draw pieces of comic.

Camp NaNoWriMo  is just like the November one except its for people that want to do the writing trauma all over again! (yaaaay)

Will I succeed?

Another Video~

Another video that had a couple helpful reminders. I graduated from college almost three years ago. My artwork has definitely grown but the only commissions I tend to get are portraits or non-illustration work. I don't get them often either (though maybe more often now than I ever had) so I'm in a trapped state of not having enough time to do these kinds of things because of...what? My full time job? My long distance relationship? My finances? My anxiety? All these things are excuses. I just need to do the thing.

I'm Finished! Woo hooo!

I'm finally finished with this piece! (maybe...for now I am though!) Is it a portfolio piece? I don't know but I'll probably add it with the other Little Red Riding Hood piece if I do. ^_^

Tumblr Sketchbook Comic

Update on tumblr sketchbook comic, NightLander.

Been working on this project for about two weeks now. Slow moving, but as I scribble down shapes  for the comic and write notes, scenarios seem to pop out of nowhere and I come across some interesting compositions I could potentially use later.

I was also apart of The Rose Petal Review, a website that features the creative works of teens and young adults going through different types of mental illness.

My goal for this project is to focus on the peak moments of someone going through an anxiety attack or depression. It's a tough goal to accomplish especially when showing those who do not have any kind of chemical imbalance, who may not completely understand all that is involved in a panic attack or days, weeks, months, years, of depression.

I'm not quite sure how this comic will turn out, or if it will become the YA novel that I wanted it to be, but I'll keep up the quick pace of jotting down ideas and of course, drawing them over and over again.
