Climbing out of the Shadows

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 23, 2015, 7:32 AM
It's been a while since I last updated this journal. Kinda feel ashamed of myself for letting myself slip back into idleness. I hardly even touched the damn stylus in making my manga despite it being a key 2015 goal. 

I don't know why but ever since Christmas week I've really slipped myself back into the realms of unproductivity. Though can't help but admit this does happen from time to time. Though it's been a whole month since I made a new drawing. I should be kicking myself for my negligence. 

Self loathing aside, I have been job hunting. Been told finding a job in sales would be recommended to help me become more outgoing and getting more comfortable with people. Though two other reasons why I want to find a more steady income is to 
1. Get enough money to go to ACEN (and other conventions)
2. Finally move out of my parents home. 

Surprisingly I've been getting a lot of interviews this last week alone. There was a furniture place I went to, an insurance sales seminar (which I decided to say 'no' to) and now I have an interview for a car sales position today and a food demonstrator tomorrow. I'm not sure how it will all pan out, but as long as I make enough money and learn how to be around people then I'll be satisfied. 

However, I do know I need to learn to stay at the artist gig and learn how to make more money doing this too. 

Another thing I have been working on lately is trying to get my manga "Shotgun Jane" published through Createspace. (And it's a bloody headache!) All this nonsense with trying to get the trim size and margins correct is such a nonsensical hassle. Had to go through 3 different programs to try to manage it all, and so far I needed InDesign. Yet, I'm still struggling to get passed the File Review section. I don't know what I'm doing I need to go edit each of my pages? Do I need to...oh god I don't even know...

If anyone has published a visual novel on CreateSpace, please give me some guidance. It would be highly appreciated. ^^;

Well that's all for me for now. I can't make any promises, but sooner or later I will be getting back on the path of creation. (Hell can argue I already made it just simply by making this post.) 

Wish me luck gents!

"Keep your head in the skies, but don't forget to watch your step below you."

Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Mike, but people call me Chain on the internet. I proclaim myself to be a mangaka, someone who draws manga and anime-style drawings. Mostly this has been an on-and-off thing for me, but now I am taking the steps to becoming professional. Each day I see myself improving in my skills, and it has been a rough ride for me with health problems and just pure apathy.

After a wonderful anime convention and having one of my drawings signed by the Nostalgia Critic, I'm passed all of the harsh mental obstacles and now am eager to draw draw and draw some more! I have two manga projects that I am working on. One is a one-shot, and the other is a long, epic series I have planned out for several years. My ultimate goal is to have an anime made that will inspire millions of viewers. That's realistic right..? :P

Anyways welcome to my page! I have commissions opened now and will be ready to put pencil to paper for anyone!
