Over the last year I've been on a lot of panels about breaking into comics or being a woman in comics, etc., etc. and you know what it all boils down to?
If you wanna work in comics, WORK ON COMICS. Either work your ass off on samples or actually even just DO a comic.
I mean, seriously, I don't wanna hear about how down on your life you are or how hard it is for you to be blah blah blah... EVERYONE HAS A SOB STORY. JUST DO IT.
I mean, seriously. I work for Marvel and you know what I do in my spare time? I do a webcomic with my friends and color pieces to sell at cons. I color cause I LOVE IT and I got my job coloring cause I just colored my ass off till I found my way in.
So just shut up and make comics.
That is all, I'm going back to coloring now.
