It’s a good question. It’s not just comics… it’s almost any form of entertainment occupation. movies, music, television…
education never hurt anybody but all people who write the checks care about is how good the finished product is. nobody ever asked me for my diploma. they read my comics and decided that I should make comics for them.
the nonstop 10 years I spent making independent comics was my job application. and whatever my last script that I handed in was is the job application for my next job.
I know it’s frustrating, but anything worth having is, there is no right or wrong way to make these dreams come true but if you are not working towards your goal every day it’s not going to happen
