Well, what used to start in May now starts in March and goes quite late in the year. I have no problem with that at all. In fact if it weren't for some other engagements I have I would have even gone to the one in NY since its only a drive away.
All in all i would say that this year has been a break through year for me. I have tried with concerted effort to raise the bar of what you expect from me. I find that the energy of youth is a driving force behind a lot of the creative genius i see and for that reason I pushed my self to leave my comfort zone a bit. There are still many things i need to improve on, but thats part of the process. I hope next year I can say the same thing.
Right now i am working on project i can't say which is not something I have mentioned much of or given exact details on. If I can post something i will do so so you guys can enjoy it as well. With Ramadan winding down, I will be able to have more power and get back into my normal routine which involves afternoon coffee.
Did any of you read my 5th Capsule in VENT? Well there will be a chance to do so as there will be a VENT release party in Toronto on the 15th of September though there will be more information forth coming. You might think after reading the first chapter you know what will happen, but I am trying hard to steer clear of stereotypical things as much as possible, and am writing this book not caring if it will sell or not. I resolved that in my mind, I don't want to cater to anyone on this or tell the story in a certain way because it will sell better or we can make action figures out of it. You like it, great lets be friends, if you don't its fine with me and we can still be friends.
Makes me think though, would you guys mind if it were in black and white with odd splashes of colour once in a while? Might have to if i don't get major funding or back up. I am itching to do it in black and white with zip tones, i want to master it. It just seems more crisp and readable.
So far i did 4 commissions of 5C characters and i am elated.
I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.
Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!
