I feel like I've been blog-hopping lately! Haha! This is for the lovely Ms. Nash who really is incredibly nice! Also, she's working on a retelling of the Wizard of Oz that's pretty darn cool. Check that out at theozcomic.blogspot.com
She's also waaaaaay prettier than I can draw.
This one's for Matt over at Spinadoo Comics. He's one of my favorite comics people that I make sure to check for updates everyday. He's endlessly supportive and his comments have kept me going through periods when I want to give up comics completely. He's been in a creative funk for FOREVER (ok...fine...for a week. It feels like forever!) and I'm hoping he gets a bit of a pick-me-up from this.
Coooome oooooonnnnn Matt! Gimme comics already! :D
So here I am, reconsidering the direction I want to take with this blog and my comics. I started doing auto-bio comics because I love reading them and find even the most mundane things so entertaining. Besides, the say write what you know and what do I know more than myself, right? Lately, though, its been hard. I feel like my life is so boring, no one could possible find it interesting. Honestly, its become more of a chore to do these comics. I'm sure its evident in the deteriorating art style and content (not that I was very good to begin with.)
More and more I find myself spinning stories and doing character sketches. I wonder...is it time for me to try a long-form fiction comic? I'm terrified. Writing is my weakest skill and I worry that I won't be able to keep up with it.
The further I get with school, the more I get engrossed in the "fine" side of art. Painting. drawing, sculpture...you know, those old fuddy duddies of the art world. I've been devoting more time to it and I wonder if I'm starting to lose interest in comics. The thought of it makes me horridly depressed.
So I guess this is a warning or heads-up of sorts. There's probably going to be some changes around here. Possibly even scrapping the entire blog and starting over from scratch. Who knows but I hope you guys will be along for the ride.
