Kurt Vonnegut, Logan’s Run and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, what more do teenage boys need? Also Lloyd is playing a Phoenix Wright game (“Objection!”). The twins share a room, it seems (which doesn’t really make sense, considering the size of the house), but their stuff is sort of at war with the other’s stuff. Zander is trying very hard to be Serious and Literary and Grown Up and Lloyd (passive aggressively, probably) still likes his toys.
So lots of good questions in the comments yesterday! A couple people hit on what I was already planning to write about, which is The Job of Comics. Y’know, what it’s literally like to have comics as a full-time job, how you make your money, how you don’t make your money, how you spend your time, make your deadlines, that kind of thing. Some booger on Twitter recently boogered at me that for A REAL ARTIST art was NEVER work. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Get out of my internets, kid, and come back when you’ve drawn 2,000 pages of comics in a 10 year span. Then we’ll see what kind of REAL ARTIST you are. (I’m sure he meant the comment with hugs, as do all people on the internets.)
Anyway, point is, comics are my job and I love my job, but it involves many things like budgeting and long hours and research and lifedrawing and striving to improve your skills and it is always hard work. But when you love your job, even though it is hard work, you cannot imagine doing any other work, and that is a joy. So I thought I’d talk a bit about that …. tomorrow. ;)
