Decline and renewal.

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 31, 2013, 5:33 AM
This year:

-I managed to get work published with Timothy Green II on animal Man and Threshold, and it's been some of my favorite work to do
-I managed to land a regular inking gig with Avatar Press ( I can't announce on what book until I've been given the go ahead to do so, but it's with Caanan White)
-I managed to meet new people at this year's NYCC that I think will help me in the coming year(s)

Sadly counter to all that, this year:

-stopped getting work for a long time after the DC work was done
-have been hurting financially to the point of having to move from NYC
-suffered the breakup of Bröhammer

There are obviously plenty of other things that have happened this year, but this highlights the major portions. I also decided to highlight the good stuff first.

As we reach the end of this year (at least those that adhere to the calendars that correlates with it being at this time of year) I find it good to reflect both on what I've accomplished and what I've lost. Though I feel overall this has been a shit year I'd be remiss in not acknowledging the good that has come from it.

So with the new year on the horizon my hope is that everyone has a better next year than the last.

You're welcome.

As for my work with Caanan, the biggest issue is I don't keep the pages. They get sent to Avatar, and I'm usually rushing to get work finished because of the tight schedule we're generally on (this being my first monthly assignment at all. All the Animal Man stuff was short term and the only full issue we did was the annual) I don't usually get the chance to scan any of the pages.

Additionally, I would want to be sure to clear that sort of thing with the people at Avatar first. Caanan doesn't usually post pencil pages either.

So honestly, I'm not sure at this point. But it's not from lack of interest.
