Basically, I have to stop treating this as a full-time job, and go back to treating it as a fun little hobby. It's time for me to start looking for so-called real work, as there doesn't appear, at the moment, to be any way to earn a living with my strip. Believe me, if I could take on a full-time job, and maintain a 6 strip a week schedule, I would. I don't know how so many of my fellow online 'toonists are able to do it. Maybe I'm just lazy.
Still, my goal is to get back to a 6 strip a week schedule, so by no means is this a sign that I'm planning to quit the strip or anything. In fact, I'm currently hard at work putting together the third Bruno the Bandit collection, tentatively titled Bruno: Mad As Hell. I've already finished drawing the 8 page bonus back-up story, and my friend Mike is in the process of coloring it. I'm now working on a cover design that will, I hope, knock you sideways!
Anyway, it's time for
me to join perhaps the majority of you reading this, as a member of the
workforce. I'm looking kind of forward to it (assuming I can even
find a job, that is). An income is always nice to have. :-)
Yes, this month's Banter is a short one, but what d'you expect? I
have resumes to write, doors to knock on, interviews to attend, and potential
pointy-haired bosses to impress. Somewhere there's a cubicle with
my name on it!
