I’m at a crossroad
I’m at a point in my life where I can go several directions but they all seem equally useful and useless. With my art coming out in the forthcoming book “Grimnoir; Hard Magic” I am now technically a professional artist. Several things have led me to believe that perhaps I should focus some more on my art. For one thing, I have an ‘in.’ I can now say I’m published. That’s quite a feather in my cap. Second; I have found that doing my web comic is immensely joyful for me. Third, I have a total readership of maybe four people with my books. This is not encouraging. Does this mean I’ll give up writing? Heck no. Does this mean I’ll slow down? Heck no. I couldn’t stop or slow down writing as I could breathing. However, it does mean that I’ll use more of my free time working on art, rather than goofing off or playing video games. But, how should I work on my art? Right now despite my advances in web comic production, I’m sort of stuck in a rut. I wish to learn more bout the techniques of digital art. Right now I feel my skills are overly simplistic and when I see what some people can do with the digital medium, I get sort of jealous. I want…no, need to become like that. I need to become versatile and proficient in what I do. In nerd terms, I need to level up. But where do I go with my life? The path I’m on seems to be leading nowhere. I need to find the right path, whatever it may be.
