Welp. - H-hey...long time no see. 2 years about, huh?

Where to begin. Well, as you can see, I'm alive. I moved to Japan about 3 years ago, and my life kinda just went all over the place since then. I haven't abandoned Overland (or art in general), as much as it seems though! Actually, I've drawn a short comic for Overland 3 times in the past three years haha. The only thing is I haven't been posting them.

Why, you ask? Well, there's a number of reasons. Right before I left for Japan I lost my father to cancer, and was struggling emotionally for a while. I wanted to do something with my art, but I really wasn't in the position to do anything except really...live. Moving to Japan made matters more complicated. Suddenly I had a job and I was in a new situation--it didn't help that my job ended up being not-so-great. Eventually though, I found my sea legs and was drawing again, but not posting much in order to keep pressure off of myself and just...naturally let myself go. It helped a lot.

I just moved to the Tokyo area, and I'm about to enter a design school in Harajuku to up some of my technical skills with comics. I've been developing Overland's story and universe a lot over the past few years, and my goal for the moment is to explore the universe a bit more through short stories until I have a clearer idea of what I'm doing.

So what does that mean for this comic? I'm not sure. I like what I have here, but I've also changed it a lot (in terms of the story and in terms of my own art style) so I'm currently thinking of what to do. In any case, I may be posting the latest Overland short I did (about Ari and Viktor when they used to work together a while back)--this panel is from it. I was fairly rushed because I was doing it along with my current job, but I don't hate it, haha. The only issue is that it's in Japanese, so I'll need some time to translate it. Or I might be lazy and just put the translations in my comments. Would you be interested in reading it?

Also, if you're interested in my Overland and non-Overland related art, feel free to check out my tumblr at: impsandwaistcoats.tumblr.com.
