THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES.
November 10, 2008
Well, here I am. I knew early on in my childhood that I was either going to dig up dinosaur bones or draw when I got older. I think I chose drawing, but sometimes I think that drawing chose me. I don’t want to do anything else but this. So, I have had to start at the very, very bottom. I work everyday at this.
Here I am at a bar in Denver trying to sell my comics. I learned this day that the modern drunkard is outside of my demographic. I made $9.00 there.
I’m okay. I will have a comic in the next issue (in december) of Maximum RocknRoll and a page in the next issue of Mineshaft (a fantagraphics zine I think). And of course my weekly comic in Westword, my sporadically appearing in The Comics Journal and my bread and butter belmarlab.org
Some people don’t have a tenth of the success I’ve had in my short time of trying to be a famous artist.
