I think I am doing good. Trying to develope some of my own ideas/stories. I am not a writer, but I have to try it sooner or later. Yeah, I've been working a lot of artwork lately. I am finally getting to a point where I feel more/less comfortable with my art. I've been hating it these past years!
I know how you feel and it's smart to develop your own property at some point. In this business, doing just work for hire is not a good future. You have to own something, plus it's a more personal body of work if you own it, therefore more honest. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
