Hard Day's Night by Rahzzah Hard Day's Night by Rahzzah
I am in a turducken of emotions.

Moon Girl #5 is out today on Comixology for your tablets,computers,phones, and probably some new way of consuming media that's been invented that I am currently unaware of.

Last night I drew the last bit of content for the physical, and digital, trade paperback that will be released early in the new year.

I'm going to miss Claire, Satana, Sugar Plum Faerie, Tiki Bob, Ben, and Star very much. Cause that is it...I'm all finished....there's nothing else for me to do....I never thought this day would come, and now that it has,I don't know how to process this new day of not having anything that needs to get done.

Ya see, to most folks out there this will be but a blip of a book amongst the boom of all the other Wednesday releases. To me though it marks the end of about 3 solid years of every moment of freetime I had being poured into this. (minus brief hiatuses into Skyrim and Arkham City of course) and every bit of brain power focused on trying to do the best job I could do at the time.

This mini-series represents,to me, my birth into and entire learning curve of doing digital art. This series has spanned those 3 years, 3 format changes, two methods of distribution, two companies, two cities, 3 computers, one repaired hard drive (thanks Mikey Zito) , two Wacom pens , quitting the 9-to-5, becoming a freelancer full-time, the birth and death of my favourite comics podcast (twice), 30 pounds, 6 inches of beard , varying muses, becoming a coffee drinker, becoming an art hermit, becoming more myth than man.

But the best things about this project honestly had nothing to do with drawing anything. The best things are getting two new best friends out of this collaboration, living next door to them in a nice house with two great gentlemen of the world (who I almost never see...see: art hermit) and a cat who I see much more often cause she's always in the kitchen waiting to be fed. The best things are having been introduced to so many nice and interesting and artistic people (who I never see and only talk to on the internet even though they live in the same town and often have social functions mere blocks from my house...see: art hermit). The best things are having my new friends and old friends meet each other and become friends themselves. The best things are having one of my oldest and dearest friends help out on the trade paperback like we were in High School again.

So yeah, our little late book is finally out, and I am as proud of it as is possible for someone of my personality type to be proud of anything they've done.

I'm proud of all the other artists who were kind enough to contribute to our made-up world, I'm proud of our little fan base, and I'm proud of my friends Johnny Zito and Tony Trov.

Think I'll maybe go outside today....

You, however, should stay indoors and read comics

Wow, congrats! It's really inspiring to read about someone succeeding in that field. I'd love to tell stories through art in a similar way someday, and hearing your tale certainly makes it seem possible, if full of dedication.

Enjoy your success!
