Been away for quite some time! I'm thinking about transitioning slowly back in though; I posted something the other day and kinda forgot how nice it is to be able to read and respond to comments directly.

What have I been up to? Mostly making games (both facebook and mobile), but I recently transitioned back to freelance to finish an interesting business-oriented book that I am finding pretty fulfilling. And some illustration work, and some other comics... Also working on my own stuff but of course freelance and commissions are a priority :)

I think I'm happier now than I've been in a while: I live in a pretty cool area, have cool friends who do lots of different and interesting things, and for the first time in a while, free time with which to do my personal stuff. Big change from my usual working-my-ass-off-and-barely-having-time-to-breathe schedule. Also freelancing lets me choose the kind of thing I want to work on, which is a nice change from games (for now). I really can't wait to get my own comics going again, which will be pretty soon.

Anyways, that's enough about me... I'd ask "what's up with you guys" but that seems kinda lame. How about, "what would you like to be working on the most right now (and are you)?" Any cool projects, ideas, etc?

D-does... that mean you're back? You don't know me but I've missed looking at your stuff so much. 

Would we see any more of The Meek by any chance?

Yep, I'm back :) Kinda heavy in devmode right now but definitely working on stuff for public consumption... Meek stuff is complicated atm, and I'll be working on it when things get less complicated, but I'll likely complete a new comic before that happens (its coming soon!!)

As long as you're back, I'm happy :)

Excited to see the new comic. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Welcome back!
I've missed seeing your posts, but it's great to hear that you're well and with new-found inspiration.
I hope you know that your work inspires us as well ;]

I'm really glad to hear you're doing alright! I've just been trying to improve my technique overall instead of throwing stuff on the page, and also dipping my toes into comics. (in no small part due to being inspired by you!)

I'm so excited to see that you're back! :D I loved the Meek, and was actually inspired by it to start writing my own graphic novel. It's currently still in the writing phase (Story, Characters, etc...) though. Anyways, I'm glad you can dou what you love. :D Also, will you be at The San Diego Comic Con this year? If so, I'd love to stop by and buy some prints or comics if I can :D

No, no cons this year unfortunately :( Fortunately, the reason is cuz I'm making books, haha... I'll be around places next year probably :D

Thrilled to see you back on Deviantart, and absolutely stoked that you're continuing The Meek.  I hope your RL troubles are over, and glad I kept watching for you so that I could see your triumphant return, even if I saw it late.

I'm glad to hear that you are happy. I have always liked your work and was a bit sad to see updates stop on your projects (although I also sympathise with needing to take a break). It is good to have you back. 

For what it's worth, I am doing a lot more sculpting of small sculpey monsters.
