Howdy Folks,
How's every little thing?  It's been a rough year for me.  As some of you may know, I suffer from chronic bouts of depression and this year I had some of the worst episodes.  I've been working to alleviate some of the triggers, such as becoming a bit more aggressive in getting my work out there, a bit more socializing, and maintaining a regular work schedule.  It hasn't been easy for me but I've been getting some positive results.  I think the area I need to work the hardest on is socializing.  I'm still too withdrawn and introverted but I'm working on improving the situation.

I've gotten a few toes of a foothold in Italy with my comic "Opey the Warhead".  I'll be producing a second volume of the comic for ProGlo Ediozoni, which I'm excited about.  It will finish the comic series, so next year I'll be focusing on completing Opey.  It's been a goal of mine for some time but the contract I signed with ProGlo to complete it by the end of next year has definitely given me a "do or die" motivation to finish the story.  I'll be completing Issue 5 and producing four additional issues for the volume.  I've got my work cut out for me but I'll make it.  Next year, I'll be working on a new mini-series with Josh Eiserike, I've got a comic I'm working on with :iconearthmanprime:, more "Quacking Dead" in the works, and a comic I'm producing for TGComics and Transrepo Depository.  All of these are a delight to work on.

Nonetheless, morale's been pretty low for some time.  I can't seem to get a foothold in the comic industry.  It's a notoriously difficult industry to enter but I often question my skills or viability as an artist.  Having recently joined Twitter, I've been seeing many in the industry, their success, and lives.  It hasn't been a confidence booster but I'm staying on it.  I'm staying in the comic and art field, too.  Fate, talent, and luck will determine whether I succeed but, damn, it's been hard.

I've still been having some suicidal thoughts.  I just don't think I'll be making it into old age.  I've still got some things to finish, though, and I'm not going to screw anyone over.  I'd just like to find something other than the fear of death to keep me going.  Believe it or not, I haven't given up yet and I'm working harder than ever.

Anyhoo, thanks for reading.

Take care.
