Networking, a brief observation

Last night I was at a launch for new book, A thousand coloured castles. Gareth is genuine talent, who is very open to how he approaches his comic making. (Something I want to write a separate blog about, as Karrie Fransman has a similar attitude to making.)

After the launch we all pitched up at the post Gosh drinking hole. I was chatting away to a woman ( Insert my name forgetting apology ) who casually asked if I was a cartoonist ? I said no, i’m just a fan and hanging out. I then turned the question round to her, and she told me abut her own creative stuff, which was interesting.

But why did I do this ?

It’s not the first time, I actually use this tactic quite a lot. But I’ve never really thought about why.

So o the walk home I gave it some brain time. It seems as though I didn’t want to be that person. I didn’t want to be Sean, the cartoonist, this is what I make, this why I make them, I’ve done this for a long time, etc. When you are in a room full of friends and peers, who know what you do, it’s great. You don’t have to prove your worth. You just are.

So it was nice to listen to someone else talk about their work, and not be in competition for me space. Just a person hanging out.

It was a lovely evening and it was great to see so many people at Gosh to see Gareth. The previous week I witnessed similar scenes for Joe Decie launching his book Collecting Sticks.

Friends doing well, its a great thing see.

Question – Do  you do this ? Do you hide when you are in a crowd, Do you take on another persona ?

Phatcomics process – Part 1

So how do I make my comics ? I get asked this a lot. There is so much info online about the process of comic making and production, is there any need for me to add to the pile?

Probably not.

But if one piece of info helps to bring someone into comics, helps someone get round a tricky problem then it’s gotta be worth it.

To start this I will talk about my set – up. The first part is the digital set – up. As you can see from the photo, it’s a basic set – up. My computer is a terribly out of date iMac from 2007, i’m waiting for it to finally give up. It’s certainly wheezing it’s way to the finish line. Attached to this is an Epson A4 scanner, Epson A3 printer and a Cintiq 22hd. If you are in two minds about switching to drawing on tablet.

Don’t be.

It’s awesome.

So software, Manga studio 5, And a bunch of ancient Adobe software.

I love digital, and it’s great to work in a time where this no longer talking point, are you trad or digital.

IT DOESN’T MATTER !

This not to say that I don’t work with analogue tools, as I do. This will be featured in the part two.

But the point is that no on has ever said to me that they didn’t like my comics because they were drawn on a computer, it isn’t even a consideration.

So, I hope to go into more depth once I’ve completed the studio walk round.

 

Until then,

Bye.

Best Tips for a Successful Magazine

Good ideas don’t require proper planning or schedule; nor do they benefit from exhaustingly long meetings and conversations with management. They emerge from experiments, from playing around with things that you care about, things to which you have an emotional attachment. And quite often they need a creative chaotic environment to flourish and grow.

However, the path from an idea to a tangible product is full of failures, and it’s those inevitable, sometimes devastating failures that make you stronger and keep you going, and eventually—if you don’t give in easily—drive you in the right direction, just to finally pave the boardwalk to something that might turn out to be changing and defining your future.

Of course we all should benefit from the knowledge of others—people who trust themselves to actually follow through their weird, unrealistic, and sometimes stubborn, naive ideas. But we should be able to learn and grow from our own mistakes, too. If you are willing to experiment and tackle failures along the way, you have to be able to make your own mistakes. And that means making an effort to beat the odds—no matter how doomed that shiny new idea might initially look.

In fact, usually that initial creative spark sounds just so ridiculous, unreasonable and improbable at first, and often even worse after the first critical review. But sometimes it doesn’t matter. Yes, it just doesn’t matter. Perhaps it’s your time to succeed where others failed, and risk your personal time to gain strength, experience and wisdom that others gained before you. Perhaps you are doomed to fail, but you might build something in the end that will lead you to success in the future as you combine that idea with the inspiration you’ll find in your cellar years from now.

Happiness is a ploy. Just a carrot on a stick.., sometimes. Maybe more than others. Maybe happiness is just far away. Like looking on a map, and finding how long it takes to get there. Wondering how much time you should take off. That’s really how I’d look at it. Like if I drive faster, I could get to the happiness I’ve been looking for all my life sooner.

Maybe just really lonely. Maybe I just want to be alone. Maybe loneliness is the only way to make that happen. Like having two pairs of eyes and just seeing the same thing. Seems like such a late hour. Nothing seems, or feels new anymore. I’d live again, to feel that way once more.

Loneliness for miles. Down every turn. A dusty road to nowhere. In everything that is given. Loneliness seems to make it’s way back into our life’s. Deeper into our hearts. I’ll never know the meaning of it. The why. Exhausted and much too old to chase it’s ever present here and now.

 

It’s hard to stress how thrilled we are with the results of our new magazine! Since the launch, customers, affiliates, and investors continue to go out of their way to send their compliments, and that is great news for all of us.
