I love you,
For the last month or so I have not been posting a whole lot of comics. Between getting to MoCCA, getting my kickstarter funded, and a pretty sizable list of personal problems I took a tumble off of the wagon and into Sadness Creek. It turns out the workload I have put myself under for the last few years is way too heavy for me to carry. I have been constantly warned by a lot of people who know what they are talking about that I would burn out eventually, and I really honestly should have paid attention. I can’t stress enough that I legitimately broke in a serious way, and for my mental and physical health I am making some hard choices about how I will be using my time.
First of all I will be taking a break from publishing other people through Milk Money Books for a while. I started putting books out to try and promote artists I really love, and it was a huge privilege to be able to do what I did. I am still friends with most of the artists, and will be pushing their work even more now that I will have some extra time on my hands. I plan to come back swinging and already have some amazing projects lined up, but I will be doing full on books instead of the pamphlets I have done already. I will also be looking for someone to partner up on this with since the stress of doing it myself was pretty horrible.
I will be taking the time to enjoy drawing again. I will try my best to keep the comics coming at at least a close to daily pace, but the days of me posting three a day are for the most part over. If I get faster in my drawing this may change, but I am a VERY slow artist. I didn’t start drawing until I was a full on adult, so the idea of whipping anything out in a relaxed way just isn’t in the cards for me. I really want to get into life drawing and maybe painting as well. You know. Artsy stuff.
Looking for more collaborative projects. Maybe books, a webcomic, I don’t know. I am tired of every aspect of this job being so damned lonely. I obviously can’t take on every project, but if you have an idea for something or want to see if we get along, shoot me an email. I am super interested in a project where someone else can do the inking. I am such a slow inker. It’s really something terrible. Want to co-write and ink a webcomic for half ownership? Seriously, who wants too?
Thank you guys so much for everything. I really really don’t mean to be such a cry baby. It’s hard to feel depressed at all when I stop and think about all of the sweet emails and support I have gotten this last year. Between the people coming to see me at MoCCA and the kickstarter money, you guys have really pulled me through this in a serious way. I can say without a doubt that without that support I could not have gotten this far along without throwing in the towel.
I love you,
