SEASONS is done.

Er…wait…let me rephrase that.

Writing SEASONS is done. There. That’s clearer.

It’s true. Yesterday I penned the final words to the final issue of SEASONS, and I feel…wow, I don’t know what I’m feeling. Accomplishment? Pride? Ease? While these are some of the emotions running through my system at the moment, I can’t help but feel that the most prominent one is — and I know this will sound like a strange response — empty. 

SEASONS is something I’ve worked on almost every day on and off for the past two years and coming to the realization that today, tomorrow, and the next day it won’t be there for me to come home to and lose myself in is…I’ve just never felt like this before. SEASONS was a refuge of a kind. It was a place I could put all my heart and mind into and on paper, permanently. I could express myself boldly. And now that that’s gone? I already miss it. I miss these characters and this world. I miss Fletcher and moving him along on this one year journey of his life. After writing the final page of the series, I didn’t stand up and shout, “Hurrah! Success! See ya later!” Quite the opposite, I sat there not wanting to leave, looking for things to add, to hold on to. This story has meant everything to me, and saying goodbye was a thousand times more difficult that I imagined it would be. But what I have to keep reminding myself is that while I’m done with SEASONS, this book isn’t done with me. Far from it. It’s only just beginning.

And, boy, Anthony, do you have a lot of work ahead of you. 😉

Speaking of Anthony, did you guys know we met in person a few weeks back? You may have seen it on social media, but I had the privilege of vacationing in The Golden State of California this past month, and, sure enough, the distance between Anthony and where I was staying was minimal (fancy that, huh?).

It was a complete blast and pretty surreal meeting in person, not gonna lie. Here’s some shots:

  

In other news, I recently designed and ordered fifty physical posters for the series with hopes of getting SEASONS out there to more people.

 

I went around to my local comic shops and bookstores to see if they wouldn’t mind hanging them up, and even mailed a good majority of them to other respectable, distinguished comic book stores around the country. It’s a little experiment, you could say, and it’s my hope it’ll pull through for the best.

Until next time, I hope you guys stay up to date with SEASONS! Big things are coming…
