The Mind Wonders

I don't know about you kids, but you really have to sit down and think about being a cartoonist if you want to become one. Not a goddamn thing goes right when you self-publish. I'll get back to the do-it-yourself idea later, but for now i want to focus on the routine. You have to draw the damn thing, letter it, and deal with printing and distribution. If you're a self masochistic individual like myself, you'll force yourself into this predicament almost automatically. When i was a kid me and my older bro use to do this shit for fun, pretend like we had our own comic company. Now as an adult, who is almost forced into this lifestyle, I see the darkness more than the glory. Now, back to do-it-yourself. You almost have to do it yourself, no body is gonna give a shit about your little comic book dream but you, and if they say they do they're lying. You gotta make it happen, so if you're part of a group thing or team, expect to be on your own sometime later especially if you're young. Then again if you don't want the hassle of doing everything you can hire someone, but if you're trying to break into comics my guess is you don't have much money to begin with. By any means never give up, but do expect the hell that's in store if you don't.
