On our last blog I talked about my personal and creative priorities, and how sometimes we’re forced to shift focus from our passion to other things. But again, one must know when to shift that focus back. Life happens to everyone. We all have many things tugging at our time. But I know myself, the longer I stay away from a project, the harder it is for me to return. So I had to give myself a hard date as to when I would resume work on the comic.

Now my focus is back to Cargo 3120! Currently, our artist Lemelle is hard at work on the comic. The first couple of pages are complete, along with rough drafts of future pages. And they look awesome. While awaiting the art, we decided to release additional content designed to give our readers insight into Cargo’s backstory. So we started with the human controlled faction of the Cargo 3120 universe: “The Interstellar League of Planets” (a.k.a. The ISL). read article

Daymond recently talked about priorities in his series on juggling life and passion. So I wanted to chime in on that as well. Like Daymond and my brother, I too am a man of faith. First off let me say: there would be no Cargo 3120 if it had not been for God and his grace in my life. This is simply my reality.  So for me the priorities were: God, family, health, Work and passion. I rank passion last because for me, if the other areas are lacking, I will never succeed in my passion, which is to tell the story of Cargo 3120. The key is balance… But balance is also the problem, because it can, at times, be so hard to achieve.

The last few weeks have been “very emotional” for me. My daughter finally achieved her goal of enlisting in the United States Army and is currently in her first week of basic training. I couldn’t be more proud of her. It’s hard to let go as you watch your children make that transition to adulthood, so her leaving was both joyous and tough for me. I also have two sons at home, both in high school. I am very proud of the young men into which they are growing. But anyone who has ever raised teenagers in this day and age will agree, it is very challenging. And in a blended family such as ours, there is at times drama (inside and outside of the home) that adds to these challenges. read article

Entry 18 – Making Adjustments

by  Aaron Walker Sr.

(EDITOR’S NOTE: The Story So Far starts HERE)

As you have no doubt noticed, we were unable to hit our January 2015 revised launch date. We tried everything within our power to release on time, but given where we were in January, we were forced to delay the release. This was not a decision that was easily made, but we here at Team Cargo thought it better to delay the release than to rush something that wasn’t quite ready for the public. This decision stems from the commitment of Team Cargo to produce a high quality webcomic that our readers deserve. read article

Entry 17 – Our Weekly Update

Well, this week has been busy, to say the least. I’ve been hard at work, not only with Cargo 3120, but in other areas of my life: real estate, acting, short films, and family. But, as I write this, I’m seeing that busy is not entirely accurate; productive is more like it. And all I’ve done is stick to my 2015 schedule: health, family, work, and passion. read article

Entry 16 – Juggling Life and Passion Part III

by Daymond C. Roman

(EDITOR’S NOTE: The Story So Far starts HERE)

 Okay, so it’s 6AM Monday morning. The day after I wrote the awe-inspiring blog post in which I break down my new schedule for 2015. Only, all those inspirational emotions are no longer with me. As a matter of fact, all I’m feeling at the moment is a strong desire to close my eyes. Y’all know what I’m talking about; when you make plans and you’re ready to go because everything is sounding so great in your head. But, once that moment comes to take action, you’re feeling little to none of that motivation at all. read article
