You say that like I ever will... [Feb. 26th, 2010|10:06 pm]

It really amuses me that this guy was so concerned about this "MAN'S GAME" I'm playing, when I followed the above conversation with a train ride into New York City to meet with my agent and editor for breakfast and lunch dates respectively, both of whom are totally awesome WOMEN, who work with lots of other wonderful comics people, quite a few of whom are--guess what--WOMEN. Pff. Man's game, indeed.

Speaking of:

Girl Comics #1 from Marvel is coming out soon, and I'm really excited to see it in person! I'm so thrilled to have a story in a book with these artists, as many of them have, themselves, been my own personal heroines for years. In fact, Ming Doyle (_ming) and I went to a summer art program together when we were 17, where I began my serious awe of her wicked skillz. Preview her amazing story for the book HERE!
Oh my Townsend Misery Sister, we're in a book together at last!


I'd really like to start serializing my recent comics on a wordpress/comicpress site, to try to make a little money from advertising, and organize myself a little better. My website will be the main hub, to host my earlier comics and the stuff I do outside of this usual format, as well as my videos and music. This new site will be updated (and linked from here) with my regular new comic things, to keep them in order and all together.

But Wordpress really confuses me, as well as the Google Ad stuff, and I could use some help!
Any kind souls want some free commission artwork as a trade for setting this stuff up for me?
Also on the offer for web guidance and assistance: My delight with your brilliance!

I think for most, saying you want to be a cartoonist or an illustrator, etc, is akin to saying, 'Right now I'm working on becoming a movie star.' Many take it as a kind of fanciful ambition, that it's naive and maybe a sign of idiocy... Because of this I'm always reluctant to tell people I'm aiming to get into illustration work, I rarely tell people. In reality though, I think there's truly not a great deal of difference between a cartoonist's ambitions and those of a carpenters or a plumbers. They're not so far removed from one another, as I see it.

In your place though, I'd talk as though I had already achieved this goal. You're already working. Plus, I live in Bendigo, a small country town in Australia, and 'French Milk' is at my local library, that has to mean something as to how you're going, I think.
