DPS: potential

Double Page Spread (DPS) of pages 8 & 9 shaping up on my drawing board. Slowly but surely. Some rough pencils laid down last night for the bottom panels of page 9.

Alignment issues are likely! & I may even reference that in the story. Things aligning is definitely a theme in the story. The Woman Ember has emerged to be a really significant character in this story. A Spiritual Guide. Stay tuned.

Page 9 shaping up

Page 9 is still under construction. Sketching in the Woman Ember. She’s stepping into the present day, out of space & time. Putting everything into perspective! Needs a lot of working up with inks, but the general structure is there.

The Artist’s Way

I’ve recommitted to The Artist’s Way course (Julia Cameron). I tried it once before, about 5 years ago, but I was in a much more difficult place then, and I gave up after a month or so. Feeling more positive about it now, thanks to support, and hopeful it will help me with artistic development & especially with the comic.

This current page (9) of comic has felt stuck for a while now, but there’s hope in recent meditations that movement & healing will find a way into the story. Old patterns need to be identified & broken for positive transformation to take place. It’s so important right now to stay positive & not get pulled back into the black cloud of depression.

Everybody is on their own unique journey, and compassion for that feels so important right now. If a broken guy is rebuilding himself through a comic: cut him some slack 🙂

Page 9 still in progress!

Page 9 of Dasie Litral & The Mystery Camera Boy is taking shape slowly. Or fast. Time has taken on new meaning over these past couple of months since finding my Soul Buddy. The story of The Mystery Camera Boy is also taking on deeper and deeper meaning for me. Sometimes things really do take decades to unfold. Love will always find a way.

Synchronicity

So much synchronicity right now. Strands of the comic coming together and surprising me with just how therapeutic applying myself to this proves to be. Seeds sown years ago start to grow and spiritual advice of decades ago comes full circle and leaves me breathless with wonder and crying with gratitude. (this is page 9: in progress)

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 🙂

Dasie Litral & The Mystery Camera Boy page 7

A really ‘wordy’ page that was a struggle to complete but feels like an important one to ‘get out the way’. There are so many separate strands I’m trying to pull together. The Temporal Totem features in page 8 so stay tuned!

Dasie Litral & The Mystery Camera Boy page 6

Page 6 has been a long time in process/development and tonight it’s reached a stage where I feel I can move on to focus on page 7.

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.
