Digging Deeper
 
To you:

I'm sure I've said this before, but I'll say it again, 'It's not easy building new worlds.'

After finishing the latest chapter, I didn't realize how deep 'into Hell' I was in.  Of course, I'm talking in story-sense, at the same time, it is intended to be a dark, sad place.  I do take some time to get out, stretch my legs, honor the sun while not liking my neighbors.  Still, I jumped in and held my breath for the last three months, fleshing out a world that's built on evil and fear.

Our world can be pretty scary, this time of year has been especially tense, and I used that to help build my version of a Hell.  Whilst writing this story,  I was feeling overwhelmed by the horrors of the real world and at the same time learning how to prevail under such circumstances.  To be the joy in the suffering.

In this recent chapter, I made the Christ focused on the main reason he is there in the first place, yet is distracted at every corner.  This also was the opportunity to finally write and draw the story that I dreamed up ten plus years ago.  I just wanted to see a Jesus kicking ass, but at the same time not make this seem like a pro-Christian propaganda, which it is not.  It's also not entirely an anti-Christian bashing, either.  The message is always there, just told in a twisted language.  

So; at this moment I am caught up on the story.  I have to admit, I am excited about this process.  It gives me a chance to not only revisit the initial plan of this story, but apply my recent experience as a full fledge artist to write new material.  As I have mentioned, I've been 'in Hell' for a while and I need a brief break to laugh.  Which is why I challenged myself to this drawing of Heath Ledger as The Joker from The Dark Knight movie.  It's one of those doodles where, before starting I had doubts that I could do it or it will turn out like shit, but I do admit: I am happy with it.  It's not perfect, but it's finished.  And I like to stare at it.


Thanks you for taking the time to read and allowing myself to open up to the world.
