I was gonna rant about the last 365 days, and how I had people in my life then who aren’t here now, but fuck it. I’ve forgiven, but haven’t forgotten. It’s just sad at how everything turned out when it never had to happen this way. Here’s to the past.
I have been on an extreme “The Cure” kick though.
Is it weird that their music actually makes me happy instead of depressed?:P
I don’t blog nearly as much as I used to. I wanna say its a time constraint, but I have been busy. January is already done. I had a wonderful birthday, and wouldn’t trade it for any party at the end of the world. But my month of January was plagued with one the most severe crucibles I have ever experienced in my life.
Writing an original story.
Since August of 2011, I have gathered ideas for my graphic novel project known as “THE ASYLUM TRILOGY”. Three stories I have created to let myself know I am capable of actually writing something I would enjoy, instead of bitching about stories I don’t like. At the end of September I completed the first story which makes up the third part, entitled “THERE IS A LIGHT, THAT NEVER GOES OUT.” Paying homage to a song by THE SMITHS, the story is a compelling love story of two opposites that overcome dark trails and harrowing tribulations to give into each other. Not an original titled, I used this title because I wanted to write a romcom story, but I ended up using less comedy, and more darker subject matter.
The second one I wrote, which I started mid-december, is the first part known as “ARCHETYPES”. I literally just finished this last night, January 30, 2012. This was a difficult story to write because I wanted something to scare me, not an audience but myself, and I believe I succeeded. I am beyond proud of myself, for finally completing this story, and cannot wait to start drawing the art work.
February will be my time to work on the last story, “THE NAMELESS.” it will be a very methodical book, but it won’t take me nearly as long as it took to write “Archetypes”.
I will post pictures and quotes from the stories as more time follows and I re-re-read the stories again. And I promise to blog more…maybe:P
So. I have been through a lot in the past two months. Drastic life changes, and reasons to gather myself and pursue my projects i have always planned, but now i want to see through to completion. One of my projects is “THE ASYLUM TRILOGY”, three stories I have planned, and wish to turn into a set of my own graphic novels. This way I can Still work on my art and complete a story for my own benefit. I do wish to publish these stories, but only for my own personal collection. I do not wish to share my work on a grand scale, but only for those who seem slightly interested in what I have thought of and created.
My first story is called “ARCHETYPES”. Its a story of a freelance exorcist, trying to protect souls on earth while also trying to prove his faith. Typical, yes. But this is my take on religion and how we all have a “Soul” and the differences from spirits, ghosts, and demons.
Second story is called “THE NAMELESS”. Its about a serial killer who murders victims to point of no identification, and a female detective trying to capture, solve, and understand such motives, and its set in the 80’s.
Third story is called “THERE IS A LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT”. Yes, based on a song by The Smiths, but thats only because I wanted to write a funny comedic story and base it on the title, “TAKE ME HOME TONIGHT” but I ended up coming with a story that was very dark, and emotional about a relationship, and the extreme turmoil love puts us through.
So far, i have already written almost all of the outline/story for “There is a Light…”. I am very excited because i will be completed by the end of this weekend, and then I will start sketching the pages.
So Its called “THE ASYLUM TRILOGY” because all three of the stories end in a mental institution.
