April 6th, 2007
it's been almost two years... first off, there's probably only
like two of you reading this, but that's ok, I really only did
this for myself.
anyone cares, I will briefly talk about myself/life. I know I
dropped off the face of the earth and here is my best explanation.
Summer 2005 was a little crazy for me. I started a relationship
and just got busy, that's how life is. I probably was bad at keeping
up with comics, but I had this desire to rework all of hindsight
21/17 since I felt like I was much better at drawing than I had
been. At the end of the summer I went to Italy for several months,
I did lots of drawing (which I'm very proud of), and though I
had occasional access to a scanner and the internet, I just didn't
have it in me to keep up with the comic. Needless to say my relationship
had ended and I was pretty focused on the millions of other ideas
I was having in my head.
I returned home in 2006, I met this new guy I ended up falling
head over heels for. I lost sight of a lot of my passions and
interests and devoted myself to him. Unfortunately keeping up
with a comic just wasn't in my time schedule, what with keeping
a steady job and spending all my free time with him. But I always
kept Conner in my mind.
see somehow in the process of creating Conner I fell in love with
him. I know, stupid, a comic character I created! But I did. And
I still love the little boy now. Conner's always been there in
my heart and in my mind, and I've constantly felt guilty about
not keeping up with him. With my relationship being a rollercoaster
over the last year and several months, I've lost a lot of my sight
in life and drive. But I think back to the summer when I first
started the comic. I did it as a way to uplift myself, for something
to be proud of, for something to feel good about. I'm starting
to think that sounds like a good idea again? yeah.
I have several ideas and projects I want to work on, other comics,
novels, and such. It was already in my plans to bring hindsight
21/17 to an end 2 years ago, and I think I owe the comic at least
that. I'm not sure how long it will take, or how often I will
be updating. I can honestly say that Conner and Owen (and maybe
a few other characters) will be appearing in many other works
I create. I will be sure to let you know when and where those
can be found. But while I try to gain some perspective and steady
myself in life, before venturing off into other comic projects,
I will spend a little time putting a finish to this story. Currently
right now I don't have the power plug to my scanner, plus I need
a new scanner. I don't even have my drawing pad, I had to do it
all by mouse. Hopefully I'll get that taken care of soon. In addition
to all that I don't have my password for my account here, I dug
out my old computer and fortunately had it saved in my ftp program.
So that's my only access. I think there is something funky with
my account. I'll have to contact the admins and get my password
changed so that I can actually know it again.
I still have my hindsight2117[at]yahoo.com email. That thing gets
so much spam I will be deleting it as soon as I get my password
for the comic. If you need to contact me, you can send me an email
there, or just put up a little comment and ask me to post my other
I miss you, heh, and I should probably get online or something
to talk to you. What are you working on now? I was looking for
your Jak comic just the other week and couldn't find it. Anyway
I have a lot of catching up to do with this and anyone who still
around to read it. If anyone is out there, it'd be nice to hear
thanks for the encouragement even after two years to post on my
comment board to get my act together.
