Anxiety Takes Over Header Image

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…

We’re about to meet another star of Float. A new page will debut next Monday right here.

Anxiety Fire art

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.…

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…

The Meat Plow

The Worm and the Meat Plow

In this page from Float, we see the Worm‘s fall has left him stuck. Anxiety has left me feeling in the same position. I often feel trapped and helpless. The Worm sees a deadly future ahead as the Meat Plow is headed his way. He’s fallen into an entire field of meat. The meat field is made from other victims of anxiety and it forms a…

Worm Anxiety Fall

Fall from Grace

Today’s new page of Float continues the Worm‘s fall from grace. In Float, the Worm portrays certain portions of my life story. The Worm is me at my lowest form. He once had beautiful wings but Anxiety took hold and his wings burned up. This sequence features the fall and his entry into adulthood. Somber gray skies and an overcast skyline illustrate my mindset as I…
