Page 10: getting unstuck…

The Woman Ember came into the story to help things get unstuck.

Brain waves. Chakras. Sometimes things have to fall apart before they fall into place.

Things are making more sense today.

2020 Goals

My main 2020 Art goals are:

Focus on progressing Dasie Litral & The Mystery Camera Boy #1 to 26 pages & get the Kickstarter live.

Evolve my comic-making art style & process so that I can flow with Time & not against it & have a more productive next decade!

Integrate comics into my day job & progress the ideas I had at Graphic Medicine 2019 Conference in Brighton.

Breaking through creative blocks, self-doubt, procrastination, depression, burn out, and anxiety are all massive challenges, but with the right plan, motivation and help they are achievable. I’m currently inspired by accountability help from an awesome comics maker.

Best wishes 🙂

The Weight of the World

I’ve recently gained some more momentum with the comic. Different strands are coming together and I’m feeling the therapeutic benefit of this. Unconscious expression has been freed up and I’m noticing some nice examples of this. Here’s the latest: a detail from the current page-in-progress where the weight and tragedy of Brimham Rocks was unconsciously echoed by the pedal of a mangled bike (that I found on a beach in Tyne & Wear as part of an art project 30 years ago) delicately touching the ominous shadow of the moon. The ‘motif’ of precarious balance is echoed and there is an unconscious expression on the nature and substance of ’emotional weight’ that resonated for me. Needed to share it.

Drawing of the Family!

This is a present.
I’m very happy with the faces. Not so much with the clouds. Still, it’s all learning.

Present for my Aunty

I drew this pencil illustration of my Aunty & her 2 brothers (my Dad & Uncle) for my Aunty’s 80th birthday, which is today. I gave her the picture at the weekend and she seemed very pleased. Happy Birthday Aunty Mary, with much love x
