Float Photo Sunday #1
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. To create Float, I must confront my anxiety head on. I’ll be sharing helpful tips that I’ve learned to fight back, but in this passage I wanted to tell you a bit about my anxiety […]
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 […]
This Is How the World Ends
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.
I Need You to Float
Float begins with Anxiety. And it will end with him. This is his big push to control everything in your life. He’s not going to go quietly. Float opens up with this fiery unsettling image. The fire and smoke-filled skies are the artwork provide a nice contrast to the spacious and soothing blue of the cover. When […]
I’ve been wanting to do an autobiographical graphic novel for a long time. For years, I had been playing with the idea of the Glass Ceiling and my struggles with breaking through. The entire idea of breaking through is a concept that I’ve put upon myself over my career. In doing so, I created this […]
