I am a firm believer in setting goals and making plans for achieving them.  When I've got a specific goal and plan I have a sense of direction and can decide whether or not I'm working towards a goal or not.  That makes it easier to correct course, so to speak.

I went full-in on getting a job last fall (goal + plan) and that worked out well.  Better than well; although it took longer than I anticipated, the job I got is about as good a situation for me as I could have hoped for.  It's paying more than I was seeking (which is good, because what I was seeking turned out to be too low to keep my finances in order) and it's much less stressful than my job in NYC.  I get the best of both worlds right now-- I do something that I enjoy (IT support) but I can completely disconnect when I am not in the office (not a manager/admin anymore).  Finances are still tight, but things look to be under control as long as nothing else breaks around here.

But I was drifting a bit in terms of my art, because the job changed things for me for a while.  Now that I'm just about settled in, I can start to plan for the creative side.  So I've set some goals and written out a plan and have started working on it.  It's a long-term plan --the ultimate goal is five years into the future-- with stages along the way.  I've got the next two or three years mostly mapped out and now it is nose-to-grindstone time.

I'm going to work on two comic book characters over the next several years.  Bev Claus is one of them, of course.  She came out of nowhere to become a personal favorite of mine.  The other is the return of one of my oldest characters.  The Iron Panther is an anthropomorphic feline mercenary who first appeared in a published comic book back in... 1994.  The new version will be different because over the course of ~25 years my outlook in life has changed and our characters are extensions of ourselves on some level or other.  I'm doing two separate books at the same time because they'll be a slight change-of-pace from each other and that way they won't feel stagnant over time.

Unlike the stories I was doing over the past year or two these will be plotted out long-term in order to create a series of single-issue stories that fit into a greater overall narrative.  The idea is to make each issue (that is to say, each 20-page story) accessible on its own while still working towards a larger story.  I'll be spending the rest of this year writing and plotting and drawing/lettering layouts with the goal of creating the actual pages starting next year.  I will still be posting artwork here regularly in the meantime since it's a nice break from what will likely become a bit of a grind.

At some point I'll also clean up my Patreon page, which has not seen any updates for a while.  I want to use it as a way to receive support from fans and followers and not as a sales vehicle.  Which is to say that I do not --at present-- plan to put any final artwork (drawings or comic pages) behind a paywall.  I may put sketches and notes there as a small token of thanks for those who support me directly, and perhaps in the long term I'll do some exclusives.  But for now it makes sense to put my work out there for free and see how things shake out.  With so many options for self-publishing now I will probably collect the pages into graphic novels at some point.  But that is a bit further down the line.

For now, you will likely see regular uploads of the stuff you've been seeing lately-- female combat, female muscles, furry characters, and the occasional fan art.  Behind the scenes I'll be putting in at least two hours a day on stuff that you won't see for another eight or nine months.  Those are the goals.  The plans are taking shape.  The only thing left is action.  As eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman often said, "there ain't nothing to it but to do it."
