Hello, this is Michael Adam Lengyel.
This is sort of my attempt to “reboot” my online presence on the internet by uploading my first “real” blog that will be followed up by a series of other post down the line.
For those of you who don’t know who I am, I’m a writer and illustrator for a self-published comic book series called The Mannamong. It’s a story I’ve been working on since I was twelve years old and has been a personal project I’ve built up over the years to be what I want to do in life; creating fictional content. But not in written form, I want them visually expressed. So I draw everything myself.
The Mannamong was the very first of a long list of ideas I came up with over my adolescence that helped me focus on getting through the crummy teenage years and aspiring to be a entrepreneur with my own intellectual property. So nonetheless, it’s a been a personal journey for me and I have this story to thank me for giving me a clear purpose to live for. Sounds a bit corny, I know, but as you’ll probably learn from this point on I’m a sentimental and deep thinker.
My ultimate goal is to keep publishing The Mannamong along with other projects I have planned down the road until I can establish a firm business in which my work can spread towards others mediums like animation, toys, games and others. It’s an ambitious goal many artists seek to achieve I know, but it’s worth giving a shot. And not to sound too boastful, but I’m pretty confident in my skills to deliver not just entertaining stories, but timeless ones that have a lot of meaning to them.
I’m not entirely in it for the profit alone. The real reason I want to venture into other mediums is to allow children and adults to find something pleasing to share with and find solace in. Just in more accessible avenues to say the least. What matters more though is if I succeeded in creating stories that can touch people in heartfelt ways. And what I hope these blogs will express is who I am as a person, how I view entertain, what I love about storytelling as a whole, and why I’m taking this journey.
Simply put, I’m going to try my best to share myself to you all out there who are curious about my work and who I am as a person. And if you’re willing to follow me to see how my plans and circumstances fair out, well I’m glad to have you onboard expressing interest in me to begin with. I haven’t been very good in updating my social media presence unlike a majority of people around the world but I will do my best to keep you all informed!
I appreciate you for taking the time to read this and I hope you’ll stick around to see my progress.
And for those of you who signed on a long while ago and haven’t heard from me in months, I apologize for not being completely attuned to the internet. But I can assure you for those who are interested in the next release of The Mannamong, that it is coming along. It’s just a matter of planning and drawing lots and lots of roughs to help me tighten the upcoming issues.
Here’s a couple pics to show you all what exactly I mean…
So yeah. A bit chaotic but it’s coming all together.
Thank you to all who actually read everything to the end and to those who are currently or have supported me by purchasing my work in the past! I’ll see you in the next post!
