Anxiety is a Glass Ceiling

Today’s art page from Float reveals the Glass Ceiling. It hovers above all sufferers of mental illness. It takes all forms. Whether it’s anxiety, depression, bi-polar or any other disorder one suffers from, a monstrous division exists to make us feel alone. But you’re not alone. It’s hard to realize it, but there are millions of others going through the same battle and there is…

Float Outhousers Review

Rejection

One of the pages I struggled with including in Float is today’s art page. It’s raw and divisive as it speaks about the rejection any artist or writer faces when submitting materials hoping to get published. My anxiety doesn’t allow me to see things correctly and I’ve learned I can’t trust my instincts. I’m also incredibly sensitive and often take things the wrong way. However,…

Message In A Bottle

Today’s Float page involves the romantic idea of a message in a bottle finding our main character as he strolls on the beach. Instead of finding a warm love letter or some kind remembrance, David discovers something that gives him pain. How did this end up in the bottle? How did it wash up to the shore he was standing at? His reality can longer…

Check-In

The art of Float continues with this new page from the graphic memoir. David is checked into the luxury resort Destino. They’re treating him like a king and making sure he feels comfortable. Should he trust them? If you missed out on supporting the Float Kickstarter, you can now order the book, its amazing soundtrack and other goodies from us directly here: https://hcnoel.com/store/

The Road to Destino

As we saw on the last page, David is on route to the island of Destino to begin his new experimental treatment. What secrets does the island hold? Hello again everyone. After Float’s Kickstarter ended successfully I needed a few weeks to decompress emotionally. The campaign was wonderful and thanks to everyone’s incredible support we reached 335% funding of our goal, but it’s a lot…

The Island

Here’s the reveal of the mysterious island David is heading to for his experimental therapy. In the book Float the island holds many mysteries and it symbolized the attempts of trying various methods to battle anxiety. Will the island hold the magical remedy David is hoping for?

Descent Feature Art

Descent

Today’s Float page deals with the act of Anxiety releasing its victim from its grip. When an anxiety attack finally ends, the pain continues. It feels like a war has ended and your body is the wreckage. During the plane ride, Anxiety attacked David and made him suffer for traveling to get help. It won’t be long be Anxiety attacks again. Float is now on Kickstarter!…

Anxiety Attack Position

Today’s Float comic page discusses the anxiety attacks I suffer during flights. Just this past Wednesday I took a plane to Florida to visit friends and family. Once again, I suffered from a series of anxiety attacks. It was only a 2 hour flight and the attacks made it feel like it was endless. I was locked into a position similar to the one I…
