It’s been awhile since my last update, and to be honest, I don’t have much to blog about.
I didn’t get to go back to school after all, it just kinda fell through. Didn’t have the money to try to enhance my skills, so I’m on my own to study others’ works. This will be a long, hard road, but I will stick to my guns and my art will get better, I promise.
I recently picked up full time work so it’s been a challenge to draw every day. I often don’t make it past my drawing table without falling asleep first. Everything is getting settled out since it’s only been about 2 months, maybe. I really would like to dedicate more time to my art and practicing without going into deep debt (bleh). Most artists starting out I’m sure go through this.
Between work and drawing the comic (as well as writing for it), I’ve been able to watch cartoons on Saturdays (yes I’m a kid at heart) for some research as well as the ability to collect a few comics for study.
<strong>To get the word out…</strong>
Yes I’d like people to know about my comic, that they might actually read and enjoy it. I’ve been posting my comic to a couple sites (including this one) and hoping that people can spread the word. I’ve been interested in awhile about attending a comicon, but I feel rather unnoticed and novice with this new experience, and whether it’s worth the cost of travel/overnight accommodations/a table if I’m not going to be very successful the first try. I have read some advice on this, but I feel that there are SO many web comics out there, that I’m just lost in the sea of them and I’m not really able to get much recognition for my work. Maybe someday, but I’ve just begun, so hopefully I’m not shot down by the big-shot comic creators for my otherwise weak art at present.
If any reader has any advice for me, please leave a comment.
