Story time.

Last monday I had surgery. Don´t worry, I´m doing fine and recovering well. I had a problem with my testicles due my sedentary lifestyle and because it´s really hot the place I live. Since early this year I also had lots of problems that have overwhelmed me in many ways and made me to feel defeated in many ways.

I year ago I started the proyect of a comic book called Red Ninja Momiji and used all my savings and part of a loaning granted by my family to make a miniseries of 4 issues. The plan was to publish them on Comixology by december 2015. But the people I trusted (the penciller), and I ABSOLUTELY HATE TO TALK BEHIND OTHERS PEOPLE BACKS, has failed me in deliver a complete issue. I don´t blame him too much, since comics are not his main source of income and he has a bussiness to run and a family to support, but the one that ended losing money and time is me.

I´m absolutely frustrated and I don´t know what to do. I lost a year of my life reserving me for this proyect that would grant me some income, recognizion and bussiness oportunities. But that now seems to be far away and unrealistic.

I have no job and the salaries in Mexico are a mockery. I can´t have a car (which I sold in order to survive), I can´t pay rent, I can´t have a couple or family by my own, I can´t do nothing with 3,000 pesos per month.

So I´m stuck between unemployment and an unfinished project.

Above you can see samples of the project. So far I have a #0 issue of 4 pages that was exhibited in Zaragoza, Spain last year (sorry for not showing pictures,I don´t want to expose anybody for now). Then we have produced just 12 pages of the first issue. A WHOLE YEAR FOR ONLY THAT, which in any measure is misserable.

I literarilly stopped everything to dedicate my time to this comic and so far it has been pointless. I own some works to some people and even money of commissions I´ve been postponing (and yes, I realize the irony of such thing), but I want to repay to that people as soon as I can.

For now I decided to postpone my own proyect and return to commissions.

I really hate to make a post about this, but I relly don´t know what else to do. I was thinking in using the rest of my money to hire a foreing artist, but with the mexican peso getting more and more weak, the dollar keeps rising in value, making it impossible for me to pay to anybody who ask for dollars. That, and the fact that now I really don´t trust in anybody on giving a large ammount of money for something like this.

The thing is that in Mexico there are good artists, as you can see in the pictures above, but life here in Mexico devours them alive, so they need to put their talent aside. The same happens to me, so I can relate to that.

I can´t reveal how much money I have expended so far, but it was a lot for me.

I made the story and the colors of both pictures. Maybe in the future I will upload the issue #0 in other page, because I want to keep separated Broken Rules from Red Ninja Momiji. I´ll try to figure out things in the next few months.

The comic is not death yet, but is unsustainable because it has been delayed beyond anything reasonable. I just don´t have faith in that people anymore. I JUST ASK TO PEOPLE NOT TO HARASS OR CONFRONT ANYBODY OVER THIS, PLEASE. That´s my job and no one else.

I hope at least the couple of pictures have made you interesed in this comic I was working. Don´t worry, it will be featured in english too.

I´m sorry for the bitching fest, but I needed to bring this out from my chest. Thanks if you did read this.

I´ll be responding notes and complains soon.

Lo escribí en el journal. Es una larga historia. Básicamente tengo problemas e salud y tengo un proyecto que quedó inconcluso y que se ha atrasado por un año. Necesito trabajo y voy a abrir comisiones en cuanto me recupere de una cirugía que tuve.
