My life stays interesting, because I manufacture it that way. That’s just the way it is. I can’t just draw cartoons every day. I have to have a focus point. Once I have that , I look at it like a job that needs to be worked on until completion. And then I move on to the next thing, whether it’s painting, sculpture, model building, or whatever. My new book is about the whatevers. Its the story of the past three years of my life. It is not the follow up to “Adult’s Only” (available here : Adult’s Only), that would be “Radio Daze” (available here:Radio Daze). So here is a page from the new book, which I have decided to call “Running cable with Spoon”. This is the rough inks. No color yet, and I haven’t fixed any mistakes.
I self publish, but I would love a publisher! Someone with enough money to promote my material and send me to all the conventions! Until that time comes, however, you can purchase many of my books at Amazon.com. That is where you will find “Adult’s Only”, part two of my memoir series, which began with “Kmart Shoes”. It’s full color, and it is the very first version of these stories I’ve done! Grab it here:https://www.amazon.com/Adults-Only-Lance-Ward/dp/1497581885/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1472828854&sr=8-1&keywords=Adult%27s+Only+by+Lance+Ward
…I would most assuredly be in the loon y bin right now. I am going to see my doctor soon, and hopefully I will get a medication that will work for me temporarily while I work through this spell of anxiety and depression. I am painting like a madman (if you want one, contact me) and that helps, but it is also a symptom of my unbalance. Hard to tell. I don’t know if am depressed, or just being affected by the hate, anger, and negativity in the world today. Here is a page from “Pin Shot”, my little book of auto-bio cartoons. Some of the stories inside were found in “Wit’s End”, but now I am able to publish them in color.
I have a lot of anxiety right now. It’s hard to focus. But this story needs to be told. It’s going to take me a while. Will I keep this style of coloring? Will I go back to water coloring everything? I don’t know yet. I’m painting right now to calm my nerves and make some money. Want to buy a painting? They aren’t cheap, but if you want t o fill your house with cheap art, go to Target and buy something 10,000 people already have. If you want your art to stand out, shoot me an email.
This was, without a doubt, the hardest book I’ve had to write so far. These stories tortured me. The guilt I felt and the confusion ate at me for years. This is the direct sequel to KmartShoes. These aren’t stories for children, or for people offended by content of a sexual nature. You can grab a hard copy on Amazon (which I recommend), or an e-reader edition at the same place-right here: Adult’s Only by Lance Ward
