Blood and Drugs(purchase here!) is not what it appears to be. Sure, there is plenty of blood and drugs within, but the underlying tone is one of acceptance; of others and yourself.
I really did crush my hand. Freak accident, but it was quite catastrophic. after it happened I drew a small comic about it with my left hand. It would be the last comic I would draw for a year. “Blood and Drugs” was my response to a deep depression and loss of identity. I am an artist-through and through. I draw, write, paint, sculpt, create music, and I customize models when I’m not busy doing all that other stuff. Not only that, but the small amount of fame I had garnered from my comic in “The Best american Comics 2016” had dwindled to nearly nothing, and I still hadn’t made a deal for the 25 plus books I had created, completely finished and collecting dust. Once again, I figured my art career, as promising as it had once been, was about dead. And then I crushed my ribs saving a kitten from being killed by my dogs. The entire lower ribcage on my left side had been broken when I fell in a rush to save that screaming kitten. Lung collapsed, I managed to save the little guy before I took myself to the ER.
