Coming home from very lonely places, all of us go a little mad; whether from great personal success, or just an all-night drive, we are the sole survivors of a world no one else has ever seen.

Worked on this the last couple of days. It would've been finished sooner but our basement flooded from all this rain. Not too bad but we actually had to use the sump pump to get it all drained out.
Anyway, I'm very happy with the result (obviously) otherwise I wouldn't be posting it =P
So a bit about the cover - Yes, those labels pointing to the brain are the actual titles of the stories. I've included 3 stories previously published and 4 brand new ones. Used the same title font as the first volume to unify the two. As usual, I was going for a bold graphic image, the same things that get my attention when I'm shopping for books. Maybe it's all the science courses I've been taking but I just wanted to incorporate the anatomy into this somehow.
I originally wanted to do one of those posts where I break down my process of designing a cover but I got carried away with working on the actual cover that I totally forgot to take screenshots. Whoopsies. The beauty of it is, I've got the Photoshop layers saved so technically I can still do that, or I can just save it for the next project.
I'll make a general announcement here when it's available for purchase. I'll give my dear Hooligans (newsletter subscribers) have a chance to purchase it at a discounted rate of course. Never too late to join though.
In other news, my pre-clinical classes have kept me busy, which explains my absence with the blogs. I have this break in between semesters which I'm using to play catch up with sites, wrap up some projects and start new ones, spend time with family, and take lots of naps.
I really do miss blogging regularly but I don't feel guilty anymore about not making frequent posts just because life and shit happens. I'm thinking maybe small, bite-sized, less monumental blog posts are the way too solve that little issue. We shall see.
So for now, enjoy the eye candy.
