You might be wondering what's going on with Air-Heart these days. Am I working on new stuff? Are any pages getting done? The answer is a super complicated yes and no that we don't need to get into here. Suffice it to say it's been a bit of a roller coaster ride over the past year and a half getting this second book going.
From the very beginning I've struggled with the nature of the Air-Heart series; black and white? grey? graphic novel? short story? It's been a complex series of ups and downs. To get to the point, most recently I had been planing (and by planing I mean completely written and then finished 3 pages) a full length graphic novel as the next entry in my Air-Heart series. As much as I would love to push forward with that idea, it's becoming clear that with my current schedule (I have commissions now!) it's just not likely that I'd ever be able to manage to put together a finished quality product in that form at the moment. All of that to say that I'm going back to where I started. The next book will be a multi-story book featuring adventures in Amelia's world. I still want to push myself to explore more complex characterization and plot as I can, but it's important to note that while I may be a semi-seasoned artist, I'm really still just a wannabe writer, I've still got a lot to learn.
Coming to a close, I'm back in the driver's seat. There will be new Air-Heart on the way just as soon as I can finish it. I really want to get to a place where I can put together a book each year. I want to develop a following of some sort, and you can't do that if you disappear every couple of years toiling away in the labs of your mind with nothing to show for it! Okay, enough talk. Drawing time...
