I’m going to try something new and make a general update blog post. Continue reading “Tuesday Update 6/27/17”
In my last post I announced an indefinite hiatus on producing new videos on YouTube (because it was something done for fun, but I don’t have time for it right now). Well, the next day I decided to remove YouTube from my phone and tablet, and added the site to my Chrome app, StayFocused – it maintains a list of blocked sites (which you can customize which sites are blocked and which aren’t). You’re only allowed a specified amount of time on all those blocked sites and then StayFocused kicks you off. It’s to help you stay productive at work and cut out distractions, which is especially handy for me since I work out of a home studio.

So due to circumstances outside of my control, I’ll be leaving my day job (or, if you prefer, my day job will leave me) by February 23rd. However, it’s looking like it may happen sooner than that, but I digress.
Now, I COULD get another day-job… But the day jobs around me that are available are full-time (leaving me no time for comics) OR part-time, minimum wage jobs. My losing my current day job is just a bit painful because it was part-time and paid higher than minimum wage, a rarity in today’s world.
However, considering how well my making comics was doing, to the point where the day job was getting IN THE WAY… I thought, “Screw it. Let’s make comics and art-making a full-time gig!”
So, what to I have to do to make this transition easier? Continue reading “Going Creative Full-Time: A Game Plan”

So this post is being written one day after the US Election results, saying Trump is the new president. My thoughts on the matter are summed up in this pledge I posted on Tumblr.
Here’s the thing – I make LGBT+ comics. I have no intention to change that. And here’s why. Continue reading “The 5th Reason I Make Comics”
