If you're an artist struggling to learn to draw

I can't hold myself out as someone who has arrived. But if it's encouraging for you to see how far other artists have come on their journey then you should see this. I think I did this in my spare time sometime in the late 80's. Drawing was hard and I was always battling a sense of futility. Because of my circumstances I couldn't go to school so I worked on my own comics in my spare time...at least when I was not physically too exhausted to do this. Drawing x rated comics during this time was all that kept me from giving up completely since I didn't care how they looked. I just wanted to tell myself these stories and it kept me going.

  1. awesome, I want to see you do a comic for yourself no time constraints and no story limits, have you ever put out something you really love

  2. Well, I loved doing Jane Dearborn and look forward to doing some more with her. Aside from that, I don't have the luxury right now to just sit down and do something for myself. I'll see if there's any of my older stuff that's worth putting up here as time goes by. Thanks, Evil!
