Hope you have as much fun reading it as we had creating it.
Hello FFFL fans. Penmaster24 here.
I’ve always strived to be honest with you all, and I’m not going to stop now.
So here it goes.
I recently found out that the sales for the FFFL #1/ Versus.com clip were less than stellar, and the producer said he wouldn’t be able to do any more clips.
This was always a possibility, but I guess I hadn’t expected the decision to be made as soon as it was. I can’t fault the producer for making the decision, and as I said to him, I’m eternally grateful that he made the decision to play around in our FFFL universe.
Where does this leave FFFL?
I really don’t know, and it’s been frustrating me over the past few weeks.
Trying to get this short/ clip made was a months long process, beginning during the latter part of last year, and this combined with not being able to find another artist for FFFL has pretty much left me spent.
In my full time I’m working a 9-5 job (which constantly shits on me), freelancing on a regular with multiple projects (when I can find work), caring for a father with cancer, and doing my best to be a decent husband.
I’ve dedicated a lot of time, focus, and effort into the world of FFFL, and we’ve definitely had some awesome ups. The downs are causing me to take a step back, and just reassess where I want this property to go.
First and foremost: many thanks to Briel7 for helping me to bring my vision to life, and adding to the awesome world of FFFL. I respect his decision to focus on his own personal stuff, and art career, and wish him the best.
On my end, I need to take a step away from FFFL for a little bit, and hell, maybe from my foot fetish as a whole. It’s not to a point where the comic/ fetish is taking up all of my time and focus, but spending the better part of 4-5 months trying to get things rolling with the FFFL movie has left me tired (emotionally/ mentally), with the capper being the failure of the clip (which I still think was kick ass, though I’m kind of biased).
So maybe I can continue FFFL on another front (prose, or heck even find another producer, or another artist if I can ever find one that’s interested, or I get an unexpected influx of actual money to do this with, because a brotha' is broke as fuuuuuucccckk, lol).
Whatever happens, I need a break so I won’t lose my mind worrying about if FFFL will succeed or not.
FFFL is one of the things I’m most proud of creating, and I’m grateful as hell that you all have hung out for the ride.
Hit me up with notes/ messages and I’ll try my best to respond ASAP.
Thanks, and peace.
