I’m feeling more philosophical today than anything, so I’m going to share.
Making comics is hard work. It is hard work that doesn’t give you too many shortcuts. It also often doesn’t give you an income, so you have to do it all on your own time when you’re off the clock.
But so many of us do it- professionals and hobbyists alike, we still keep at making comics and often a single project takes years to complete, but it does get completed.
So what is the allure of it, why do we keep at it still?
In my case it is therapeutic. It helps me think while I draw and puzzle out expressions or backgrounds or angles. It helps me with my emotions too, of happiness or of sadness or of anger. And finally it helps me share through a story things I would be unable to share in a relatable way otherwise.
So I think that as long as I have eyes and hands, I will keep at it and strive to get better at it and share everything I discover in this journey.
And yes it was my birthday today and now it’s after hours, and I just get mellow like this sometimes. So cheers!
And feel free to share what making comics does for you!
