I just reached the 80 page mark on Off Saving the World, and I'm a little over a minute done with the upcoming stand up comedian animation, which I might start streaming again. I've been offline for a while, working, but also just worrying too much. I do that all the time, and it's not fun, but part of my anxiety is that the more I feel it, the harder it is to stop it and just have fun, even when I should be having it.
I think back to when I wrote "How to prevent idiocracy". It was a stressful and kinda scary time and I wanted to make people feel better. I still agree with the overall message of it, but at the same time, it's a direction I don't wanna go with my content. It was really preachy and set really high expectations. My anxiety causes me to do that ALL the time. Setting myself up to fail instead of just doing what I actually wanna do, and should do, which is create fun.
Despite being a weird cartoonist, I've always been oddly serious and anxious, never really able to have fun
