I am not sure that I will ever get back to this series again. It was a huge learning curve for me and I gained a lot of experience from it. It may be nice to revisit it at some point, but in the meantime, I thought I would do this one just for fun.
I got the idea for this while meditating. I saw the image of a watercolor block of paper that was just the right size for this, allowing for easy scanning and ease of use. I realized right away that I had not really used the block of paper that I had gotten from a watercolor paint tube gift set. I didn’t have to crop, or resize at all.
I wasn’t sure whether the paper would work, but it surprised me. I found myself having more fun with this than I thought. The idea of having to consistently put out work like this every day, or even every week is too much for me to think of now, but I still think it was worth the effort to get this done.
One of the things that bothered me about doing daily comic strips was quality control. I was not able to consistently (and sanely) put out work that would meet my expectations. I was not able to get the strips colored in time and I felt the work suffered.
I pushed myself too hard to try and get out something that should be lovingly given the time and care it deserves. Trying to make something so overwhelming with no financial support from it was not something I could conceivably continue to do- especially when I had ten or more other projects burning a hole in my motivation and time schedule.
As it is, this may be the last Angel Messages of Light comic strip for a very long time. However, there is some hope for it in the future. I am glad I was able to get this done in a quick and easy manner and with a higher quality than I was able to before.
