Done for Nowon January 20, 2014 at 9:34 am
By now I think I you all know how much I hate to disappoint you. I’d like to really apologize for dropping off the map entirely these last 2 months. It’s been a long and trying time filled with many difficult decisions.
The result of one of these decisions is that I won’t be able to continue doing Fajita.
I had been talking with Mike about this, and spent a long time thinking about it as well. The comic has been part of my life for almost 5 years, and it’s not easy to let it go. I worked my ass of on it, and that’s not to say that I think it’s perfect because of that. Quite the opposite, Fajita has always been more of a learning experience for me than anything else.
The comic taught me everything I now know about making comics. I owe it, and all of the people I’ve met because of it, more that I can ever really repay. I’ve said it before, but many things have changed since I picked up that first pencil for Fajita, and at this point in my life, it would be better for me to push my work into new avenues, new series, new comics, new books, than to stay here working only on Fajita and never successfully try anything else, as much as I love it here.
Not many people know how time consuming my work on Fajita has been, and while it’s always taught me well, I’ve missed and crapped out on many opportunities to do other things with my work. And recently, with less time than ever before to work with, the sense of restriction has been downright hard to deal with on a personal level.
But I love Fajita, and I hold nothing against it. Hell, I’ve already got a bunch ideas for when I want to eventually return to the comic’s universe. It’ll just have to be at another point. Another, less poverty-stricken point, haha!
Again, I know this comes at really bad news to a lot of you, and I’m really sorry. And while I can only do so much, I wanna try my best to stay in the convention scene, and if nothing else, always be available online.
This new year is going to be full of new and exciting projects for me, and I can’t wait to share them. I have a motivation like never before, and while I’m moving on from Fajita, I really hope you’ll join me on this crazy ride to wherever the hell it is I’m going.
