I do not need to be a famous comic book artist. I need to be a comic book artist. It took just getting to a really low place to be able to say, I need to be a comic book artist. I can put out a couple comics a year and if that’s what I can do, that’s what I’ll do.
I love comics. I hate when people refer to it as a fallback gig. If you are here, you are here because you want to do comics.
