For the past couple weeks I have been trying to figure out what I need to be doing to get into making comics and working as a freelance artist. After visiting Wondercon in Anaheim and talking with a bunch of other artists and writers I soon figured out the solution to my problem; keep making artwork!
It sounds simple enough, but the one thing I haven’t been doing is actually making more material. I was wandering the internet taking in other people’s art, ideas, and advice on how to get into comics instead of being one of those people making art, presenting ideas, and, well,.. just doing it!
I’m working on a handful of comic projects for the next couple months, the first one being a comedic parody of Reality Television, and another adventure/comedy following the lives of super-manly sperm. I am open to working with dedicated sci-fi and fantasy writers as well, and any original stories, ideas, or plots that come my way will definitely be considered!
Its so much better to connect with other writers and artists then to work alone in your studio. No one sees your artwork if its left in a folder on your shelf!
