I missed Otakon.
More specifically, I worked through the anime convention this weekend and couldn’t attend.
So the anguish in this picture is very heartfelt.
Could I have made it Sunday? Sure, if you don’t mind getting a lesser version of the event. But that’s not my style. Real life and bad scheduling on my part ruined a great weekend.
So I took the time to work on my comic book style. I picked it up during #inktober a few years back, but haven’t really worked on it much recently.
My dream to do a comic is long dead; I want to make a self contained story because those are what I enjoy the most. Episodic works can be wonderful, if you have the time and interest.
But I am not sure that I can maintain interest in any story that long, honestly. I think I have a few big graphic novels in me and they could MAYBE break up well….
But I doubt it.
I know that it sounds as though I’m being negative; still, six great stories or a bunch of mediocre crap? That’s no contest.
I’ll take the Icarus option.
