It pains me to have to type this message but at the same time, it feels like a seven year old burden has been lifted off of my shoulders.
As of now, I am cancelling the comic series 'If we had it all' but it is NOT going to be forgotten and here's why. I've been working on this story ever since I was 14 years old. I have created characters, worlds, mythical creatures, gods, religions and hundreds of species to tell this story I have crafted for so long.
I was the writer, designer, director and artist of this entire story and as of late, I've been noticing how much pressure I have put on myself to start making progress on such a mammoth story with such a saturated universe.
In future, I wish to bring a team together and instead turn this story into a 3D animated cartoon, for I see this as the only way this story can realistically be created as a visual medium and with the vision I originally intended.
For such a huge project, I have noticed how much it had been effecting me both emotionally and physically knowing that I'll always have this huge story looming over my head, although one of me greatest creations it has also been one of my greatest curses.
As of now, the story is on an indefinite hiatus until I feel like it is ready to come out and not be constantly in the back of my head, nagging me to continue when I simply can't begin to fathom how much time, blood, sweat and tears are going to have to go into it in order for it to be created. I'm sorry to all those who wanted more and who wanted to see what happened next but I have made this decision for my benefit and I can already not describe how much of a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, it's rather refreshing.
BUT.... and that is a BIG but. I do not intend to stop creating art for you, in fact quite the opposite. For a while, I've noticed how much you guys all love Kia, one of my most cherished characters, so instead of simply making the odd cutesy picture, I intend on making an entirely new comic book series with Kia playing the staring role!
Characters are already in the process and I already have a story in mind! So be sure to keep an eye out for that.
Once again, I am truly sorry to those I have let down but for the sake of my own sanity I have had to convince myself that this is the best course of action. Thank you to those who understand.
I'll see you all soon.
