I just finished creating www.townoftymes.com and my own artist site www.erikreichenbachcomics.com and I learned quite a bit about time in the process. I’ve been strapped for time because I’m moving to the Virgin Islands in a few days and on top of that me and my girlfriend decided to have a huge road trip out east to visit a bunch of friends, family, and Survivors.
Time is really strange. A day can feel like years while a month can feel like a few minutes. Monotonous work and boredom can kill your life; you wake up months later wondering where you are. And maybe after some traumatic event or change of perspective there are those precious moments where you wake up and think about where you are and what you’re doing. How long have I been doing the same thing? What am I doing in this shitty job? What happened to feeling free when I was a kid, when it didn’t matter where we were going or what we had to prove?
I guess I’m still young, adventurous, and restless, but I think anyone can still change the way they do things. I want change in my life. I know from past experience that unpredictable events make for a well lived life full of memories and experiences. I don’t want a planned out career, and as alluring as the comfort and stability of a good house and job can have I know its not good for me. It makes me fall asleep, and i don’t want to do that.
Anyways, I’m glad that the website is completed and I can kind of take a break until the next big thing comes along. I will let you know when the comic makes it onto iTunes, but until then please take a look at my art, comics, and illustrations. I would love to hear what you think!
