Time for an update! Greetings
, new watchers. Hai, hai
my old watchers. How is everyone? Art
I've started my second year of this 'comic malarkey'
and at last green shoots of hope have broken through the chunky fertilizer of 'hard work'
. Other comics people seem to know me and keep returning for my services, which is nice
. Trust can only be bought through hard work, and it seems to have paid off in showing people that I can be relied upon. :3 There is a lot left to be learned, but we're getting there
This week marks the first week of (theoretically)
paid comics work and it feels good, people
! It's not much, but it's definitely the first green leaf of
some kind of propagating vegetation. My dad's reaction:
Me: 'I made ten quid today!'
Him: 'Stop pissing me off! It should be a HUNDRED and ten!'
Boy, his encouragement skills are unmatched
. But, for some reason, that made me work even harder. It may be peanuts, but they're MINE
Apart from that, I'm working on two concurrent twenty-page comic projects
so life is quite busy. However, I found that this year of exclusive focus on art has exercised my creativity muscle, which actually means I can keep up with comics as well as do the odd bit of my own art. ;3 I've definitely sped up. Personal
This year, I met lots of nice, like-minded people too. Summer was filled with adventures and breaking of personal barriers, which certainly opened my windows out a bit. So, my friend situation is taking an upturn too! ^_^ So, all in all, it's been a good year!
