My Brother The Dreamer by werder My Brother The Dreamer by werder
My brother was a dreamer, back when we were young he had this dream to build a submarine made of wood and a helicopter made of wood as well, he also wanted to build a jet pack also made of wood, because it was the only available material lying around.

I am the eldest of us three by the way, and i would just laugh at his crazy ideas, "a submarine made of wood? how will it submerge if it's made of wood?" I'd ask my self. Then one day i saw him gather up pieces of wood and started forming some sort of propeller, nailing them altogether, you could see in his face how serious he was. i just watched.

Even though he ran out of wood, he was still determined to build a propeller-type flight pack, he wanted to fly.

My brother and I used to be inseparable, he looked up to me, he would go where i would go, we were like brothers.

But came a time we became distant to each other, my so called friends did not want my brother tagging along, so i did something I regretted for the rest of my life, it as my own fault why as we grew up we became distant. I chose other people rather than family. Now that we're all grown up, I'm trying to pick up the pieces, trying to catch up, trying to build something i totally neglected.

We're somewhat okay now, but still, if i had not chosen others our bond would have been a lot better, i am happy for what i have, yet i regret causing him that pain, because of me the dreamer in him faded. This is the story behind this piece. I created a world where my brother and his dreams met.

This is my vision.

I made this as a testament to my brother, for my love for my brothers and for the rest of my family and to those who stuck with me even though i screwed up a lot of times.

Thank you for your time and for viewing.

I just wanted to say sorry for taking so long in getting back with you. I previously hadn't heard from you since September about the comic book. So I had asked a friend of mine to look at the first issue. She loves the story and wants to illustrate it, but she is also scared about the commitment. So she might or might not do it. But I wanted to see if you would like to illustrate it as well. I think two artists will work better than just one. That way if either of you needs time off from the book the other can take up the slack. I really love your work. I was wondering if I could send you a copy of the first issue to read? Can I have your email address? Thanks again for your interest. I hope to hear from you soon.

I totally understand sir, it's really okay, Here's my email sir: junjoe.werder@gmail.com, I'm really interested to see the 1st issue and then i'll let you know if it's something i can work on.

So if things push through, we'll working on the following issues?

As far as which issue we would be working on I'm not exactly sure. The other artist used to draw comics and then she went on to design xbox games. She is a little scared that she might not be able to draw as well anymore so she might back out. We'll see.

Yo!!! Galing mo pa rin Werder!:) Well, I agree with Mechangel- bagay na dagdag lang koting contrast sa colors... as in konti lang:D Otherwise, I love your work. Fave ko pa to sa 16.
