In today’s blog, I will demonstrate how I never finish anything I set out to do. Or, rather, how I come up with cool ideas that I never have time to finish~ I’m guilty of creating a multitude of big projects at one time to keep my creative juices flowing, but eventually the buildup of having too many ideas leads to a crash and burn and the completion of zero ideas, even ones that I have already started. My dream is to become a powerhouse that needs little sleep and operates only on coffee and music to get the job done in the wee hours of night, so that when I go to my day job looking like a train face-planted into my house I can have the satisfaction of knowing that at least my creative ambition was not defeated by sleep.
Actually that is probably the worst idea ever.
The above is a collection of “girls in hats” that I wanted to make into stickers. But below I will be sharing with you all a comic I started a couple years ago about a girl named Alice. If you think these few pages is somewhat of a self-insertion, then you are probably right. The comic was meant to be somewhat autobiographical, except instead of being a daily life journal comic, it was about a 23 year old girl in the same situation as myself, who escaped to another world where their biggest problems were defeating false gods and saving a fantasy world from complete destruction. Also there were airship pirates somewhere in the outline. That’s cool, right? Anyway, I never finished it because in the end I hate inserting my own problems so visibly into my work, and I keep thinking of alternate ideas for Alice as a character. I have a few heroines like this, where I can’t decide on their story at all, so maybe someday I can combine them all into one super cool heroine that needs a story told, like Charlie and Ajahli. Who knows?
Anyway, onto the comic!
