Had a long talk with Julie in the car the other day. OK, I had a long rant/monologue about all the dumb decisions I've made that if I'd known better I would've done something else. But of course it's all moot now. That's the way we all get from to point b
.I've realized that indy comics don't make a lot of money. I've been turning down contracts so that I can just work on comics and in retrospect that was a really bad move. Even the publishers warned me not to do that. I'm thinking about other ways to get my work out there while pouring all my comic book heart into Maddy Kettle.
So, I hate to say this but I'm going to have to abandon my spring webcomic.I know it's something I've been talking about but I just can't afford to do an indy comic and a webcomic as well as illustration jobs, which is where the money comes from. I'm thinking again about illustrating books to tell other stories at the moment.
So, that's the plan right now; just do Maddy Kettle and start taking more illustration work and try to develop my own illustrated books. I'll report on it as it goes along.
