B&N Week 144: Ask Questions, Learn, & Then Do

We have another Tuesday! Really, thatís all the introduction this week. Iíve got some stuff I want to talk about, and I feel itís important. [Well, to be honest, I fell that all subjects are important. Some are more important than others, though.]

This week, I want to talk about self-help and the newbie.

Hereís how I want to start off, though: few of you are lazy. Some of you are, but the truly lazy people are few and far between. You canít be in comics for long and remain lazy. I donít believe it to be possible. Thereís just too much work to be done for that to happen on a consistent basis. The amount of work to be done and the unique challenges that the work presents generally tend to weed out the lazy. So, few of you are lazy.

Now, with that being said, some of you arenít doing enough for yourselves. By that, I mean you expect others to do things for you. When that happens, youíre doing yourself a disservice, because youíre robbing yourself of learning opportunities. It is those learning opportunities that will help you later in your comics career.

Over the years, Iíve collected a lot of information. As a creator, I like to be informed. When I was new, wide-eyed and hopeful of the possibilities, there werenít a lot of places where I could go to learn my craft, hone it, and be a better creator for it. My ex-wife found Digital Webbing for me one day while I was at work, and Iíve basically been there ever since. It was an amazing resource for newbies like myself to go and learn my craft. I could also ask questions and get answers.

And therein lies the trap, folks.
