I'm back Bitches.
Some of my Watchers might realize that I haven't exactly been active lately. They would notice that I haven't posted a new deviation in over two years. I've been busy in that time. I've been busy and misdirected.
For the last three years I've been in college. A smaller design based school. I was trying to earn a degree in Sequential Arts. I was hoping to get help reaching my dream.
For almost half my life my goal has been to write and/or draw comic books. I've hoped to produce comics that inspire people. I've dreamed of becoming a major success. Life hasn't gone according to my plan.
School proved to be much harder than I was expecting. I was so sure that, since I love to draw I would enjoy every course in the program. I was challenged in ways I probably wasn't ready for. Certain subjects were more overwhelming than inspiring. I finally realize the gravity of my mistakes.
In May, I learned that I won't be graduating. I haven't been meeting deadlines.
Recently I was driven into a rut. I couldn't decide what to do with my time. Drawing had become unclear. I couldn't see what would happen next and I was terrified.
 When I spent some time with family there were some rather insightful conversations. About a week ago an inspirational idea occurred to me. I finally decided that I wouldn't be defeated. 
Working for a comic publisher is harder than I thought it would be. I've decided to publish my own work.
I have decided to start my own Web Comic.
I've seen comics that started on the Internet grow into something stronger. I know about artists who paid to print their own stories and profited highly.
I have a new plan for my artwork. I plan to spend the next year developing my own Comic and publishing it for the world to see.
I'm going to save up my money to attend a convention. I'll research printing my work.
You can look forward to more submissions from me. Soon I'll be uploading concept art, rough drafts and previews all for my personal project.
I won't be shut down.
This is a brand new start.
