Anxiety Takes Over

Anxiety takes over and we see David fully for the first time. He’s dived far into the inner chambers of his mind. David wants to hide from his problems and his pain. He lets Anxiety take control.

Dive

After last week’s Float page, David dives inside his mind to escape the pain of his upcoming divorce. Anxiety has cost him another love and another beneficial relationship. His number one defense mechanism is to retreat inward. Amanda, David’s soon-to-be ex-wife, offers some final words of encouragement. Every person has their breaking point. Anxiety doesn’t just affect its victim. It also affects its victim’s friends, relatives and…

Sound of a Lifetime

Here’s a new wonderful behind-the-scenes photo of Victor and I working on the soundtrack to Float. This project will be a unique experience for the reader/listener.

For the Best

Losses are inevitable in the battle with anxiety. Sometimes it’s friends or jobs. Sometimes it’s a lover and soulmate. The ones closes to you are the fallout. We’re about to meet another star of Float. A new page will debut next Monday right here.

Power of Anxiety

The Power of Anxiety

The simplest of tasks become complicated challenges. A gift from a friend turns into a blanket of guilt. A perfectly normal phone call is followed by an hour of exploring any possible regrets.

At Your Door

In last week’s comic page, after the rose bloomed from the stem of the Worm’s throat, Anxiety came knocking. This transition is symbolic of whenever I’ve faced an insurmountable pressure and loss, Anxiety appears. Anxiety waits at the door to my mind and knocks repeatedly. He wants inside to play around wreck the decor. Anxiety is unrelenting. He doesn’t get tired easily and he’s very strong.…

A Rose Blooms Red

A Rose Blooms Red

As we saw in the last week’s Float page, the Worm was ground down by the Meat Plow after his fall from grace. Anxiety has been the cause of many downfalls in my life but I still believe in the power of hope. I survive each attack and I consider myself strong for making it through to the other side. The rose blooming from the Worm’s…

The Worm and the Meat Plow

Ground Down

The Worm falls victim to the Meat Plow as it rolls over him. He’s ground down into the earth. The field that the Worm fell into is filled with past victims of the grind. Some harsh observers would state that the Worm wasn’t ‘strong’ enough for this world. But who could survive a fall from grace that lands you in the ground? Who escape such a…
