I’ve been asked to work on about three independent comics since Christmas. It’s a big deal to me. I’m pretty flattered by it all.
My answer was no.
Don’t get the wrong idea. I’ll never be too good for something like that. It’s awesome to even be considered!
But I have so many projects and commitments that I would have to disappoint someone else. And I keep my promises, sometimes to my detriment.
So I really don’t have the time to dedicate to someone else’s lovechild. It requires a devotion that is already spoken for in my life. So I find myself somewhere I never conceived of.
Saying no to art.
I have to let go of free art too. A few cosplayers are upset about it. So am I!
It means I don’t have time for my own projects. I waited so long to get to this point and it never occurred to me that I wouldn’t have time to have fun.
I shouldn’t complain, right? I’m on the right track to fame and fortune!!
To be honest, I just want to work on things that are fun and interesting. So far I have. Only a few customers turn out to be needy douchebags…
Maybe next year I’ll do a book with someone. Maybe. My experience with my own short story was annoying. I actually would love to do covers.
It’s possible that it’ll happen for me. I can kind of make it out in the distance.
I’ll know my path.
