ELECTRONOMICON FINISHED

Finally.
Started in 2008. It was a very strange ride. The book is not your conventional type comic book. If you are expecting 20 panel grids, this not it. It's something else. I have no idea how you guys and gals will receive it but I hope it connects with some of you. It was a hard book. Not because of anything regarding the actual book.
It has to do with the stuff I went through these last 7 years. That's a lot of time but I did not give up.
Some stories ended up taking their own way and becoming other books that I am working on.
Good news is that if everything goes well. Electronomicon 2 is ready to print. (see? I was a busy bee)

I don't know what to say about it. Whenever I do a book of mine there's "me" in the character. That can be hard because ... well life's hard. What can you do, live it or end it.
Truthfully I am pretty depressed about finishing the book. I think I should be happy but it's strange. I feel like I killed a part of me. Sounds weird now that I read this last sentence but it's true.
NOT a happy camper.
Oh jeez, I dunno. I should be happy. I have an actual OST scheduled to release on tape (yes tape, it ties in with the book and it's cheap and cooler than an mp3, deal with it).
Right now my itunes shuffle plays the corniest 80's sad ballads. NOT helping Apple.

I think I feel this way because I feel like i wasted 7 years. Usually I do 10 pages a day if it's something of mine that I like. And dragging this for so long. Well it obviously has to do with the nature of the story and the fact that subconsiously I did NOT want to deal with it. If you are on my facebook you know that I type/talk a lot. I choose to be somewhat silent on the "public" internet stuff. mainly because I have an open dialogue canal with people on facebook and mail.

(I wrote some extra stuff on this entry but my laptop went poof and lost it)

Anyway, I don't know if I am a "comic-book-artist" I thought I was, when I was in my early teens I used to read Wizard and I never thought that I would be part of the "American scene" all I did was skateboard and read my friend's Alexis comics coz i was too poor to get my own (that's why i still have EVERY single Wizard mag from the time that Batman/Spawn was a thing)

SO , the book is done and I am going to type some stuff. I am also making small paragraphs so you can have an easier time reading this. This book is for dreamers, dreamers with depression... Hah.
I was ..."was?" I AM 80 pages into the last book of Last Call. I took a break to finish Electronomicon.
The book was ready but I needed to update some stuff and.. color. I colored chapter III with Julia Scott. Actually she colored it and then I went all OCD and redid the thing. I'm an idiot.
I used all over the book a LOT of the 80's VHS cover style, that took me into a direction where the pages are not "this is a panel, you read it!" It is very visual. The book is set in the year 2156 so there is room to put to paper all the futuristic stuff I kept under wraps. Bad news is that if you wait almost a decade to finish a book , some might not have the impact that they would in 2008. But on the flipside it won't look too weird because people are getting used to this kind of visuals.

Bla bla blaaaaa...

stuff and things.

over and out.
