Symbol of Strength
I choose to view anxiety as a symbol of strength not as a sign of weakness. In my upcoming book Float I created the red symbol to depict when Anxiety speaks. We made badges and offered them as a prize for Facebook commenters on our website’s first week. When I saw some many friends and […]
Float Photo Sunday #1
In today’s new page of art from my upcoming anxiety memoir, Float, we meet The Worm. You can read more about the characters from Float in the site’s About section. The Worm is used in the book to portray some of my most sensitive moments from my life. He’s an unfinished work and a physical embodiment of […]
Welcome to the first installment of Float Photo Sundays here at YourGlassCeiling.com. Each Sunday we’ll share a behind-the-scenes photo from the making of Float the book and Float the soundtrack. Here’s a beautiful photo of Victor and Howie searching for the muse of creation. I’m 99% sure I remember we posed for this photo as […]
A Positive Change
Here at Float headquarters, our main goal is to provide a place for you to visit 24/7 to preview pages from my upcoming graphic memoir and to read posts about anxiety, art and inspiration. We’re making a concerted effort to continually have new content here for you to enjoy. Every week, I’ll be posting new Float art pages […]
I would like to raise a glass a warm tea, or your choice of suitable celebratory beverage, to thank all of you for making the first week of this website so special. I was initially extremely nervous about launching this site. Float is by far the most personal work I’ve ever done. It’s like a […]
When Anxiety Attacks
Here’s a short video of my process of drawing Anxiety from the upcoming book, Float. He’s always so full of attitude. You can read more about Anxiety on the Float ‘About’ page. Here’s a full color version of the final character artwork.
How Did It Begin?
With anxiety, the smallest problems can grow into insurmountable obstacles. A wave of overwhelming panic builds and overtakes its victim. For this reason, it is important to have some form of immediate relief close at hand such as hemp extracts. Anxiety is a unique disorder in that it is physically unnoticeable in most people, which […]
Writing the Music
We start Float with ‘How the World Ends.’ But to truly understand the ending, one must understand the beginning. Since Float is a graphic memoir, I knew the subject matter would be extremely personal and difficult to share with my readers. There are things in the book that I’ve hidden from family members and my […]
Float Facebook Live
Float is different from any other graphic novel Howie’s written. Not just because it’s a look into himself and his anxiety, but because there will be a four track soundtrack to accompany the book. I’m so excited to be part of this new experiment with Howie. My goal is for the music to reflect his […]
Float was on Facebook Live for the first time today. You can ‘like’ and follow the Howie Noel Art page on Facebook to check out future videos when they first broadcast. The patch contest featured in the video has ended but there will be more opportunities to score cool stuff in the near future.
