About a month ago, my brother had a heart attack. He is only 44 years old. What complicates things is his progressive diabetes. He had to have a triple bypass operation. He nearly died. He is my closest brother and friend. I've been through a lot of death in my life, and this one would've really affected me. He is alive, but his whole life is completely different. I, my self, have diabetes. I take it day by day. I work on dieting, and exercising. Life can really pull the rug underneath your feet sometimes. My work work (bread and butter) is frustrating, as always. I really hate it, most of the time really. My only hope and dream is the comic book I've been working on; Titanicus. I'm putting my heart and soul into it. It gives me a sense of direction and hope. In the meantime, I've been working on this "Bigiful" series lately. Been having a blast doing it too. It's just simplicity in the shape of shapely women. Don't know how many I will do, but DAMN it's fun. I'll do more, complex and realistic pieces too. Been working on some crafts pieces too, well me AND the wife. She is really showing great creativity and skill. I will post these pieces as they come along. Going to try Etsy for some of these projects, see how that does. Had a great 13 year anniversary in vegas about a month or so ago. Other than that, just grinding away on my comic book and life. until next time. don't give up hope and perseverance will reward itself.
