I want to go blind making comics, not blog-hopping.
If you want to be a cartoonist, you have to do the work: you canâ€™t just talk about your characters and plot, and research endlessly.
You can tell someone, â€œOh, comics arenâ€™t just for kids any more, theyâ€™re the real deal,â€ and then theyâ€™re like, â€œOkay, what can I read?â€ And you give them Maus, and maybe you give them Ghost World… and then thereâ€™s not that much.
If people just want to do comics because they want attention and be loved, then they should go into filmmaking, go into another medium, or work in an advertising agency.
Comics is picture writing.
Compelling stories make readers want to learn or do more.
