    Sure you can. There is no substitute for hard work.

    Thanks for added info about personal stuff. It must be important enough for you to do, and keep in the back of your mind though, looks like a passion you had maybe in your earlier age. Maybe it just means you need to find an outlet for your creativity - but it could also an asset in a "real" job. I'm positive you'll find another job before too long, although I do not share the sentiment that

     
    You don't do what you really want. It becomes a job.

    ... Doing what you really want is possible, yet it means you have to sacrifice something else.

    My last job was delivering mail. I'm on a little sabbatical now.

    Do I really want this job? - For some reason I'm compelled to re-read what you wrote.

    Well that's the important question here, right.
    I understand why you were venting and the feeling that stem from this kind of stress, which makes you hate everything. Yes, you're surrounded by incompetents. Now, why is it you want to join their club? At the same time you want to be the guy that can draw everything.
    You can't do both. It takes years of training to become any good, in any field.

    Your situation touched me... I wish there was something more that could be offered than a few lame suggestions and a pat on the back. But I know that sharing feelings usually helps, and I'm a good listener.

    Dung commented on Interviews suck. And then you die.
    Sorry, I understand there is financial and time pressure associated with being jobless, I was trying to help, saying: this is a good time to focus on what you really want to do, before getting sucked up again into the money laundry machine. You'll eventually find another job, that's a given. In a similar situation, I'd focus on do I really want this job?, rather than on the frustration and urgency of the moment. For you might discover better opportunities if you put on with a little more patience. If you're frustrated and desperate, it definitely shows during an interview - needless to say it reflects negatively on your potential as a candidate. That's maybe part of the reason why they ousted you.

    Happy to hear that, is sounds like great news. Don't get me wrong, but I always viewed being out of a job as a precious moment for oneself to reconsider things and think of important strategies, this is to say, doing what one feels worth doing and what one is compelled to do. And it seems that's exactly how you see it as well. Keep me updated on your progress (and I know it's a lot of work).

    Actually, I completely changed my mind about this. How about your own project?

    Yeah these guys are impressive. However this is not with small ambitions that one can achieve anything, you're right about that. Your idea about narrating moments of your life to your kids using comics is very cool and I wish you every success with it. As for paper versus digital, we're in complete agreements. Never underestimate the power of the simplest tools...are these sketchbooks what you are to fill in one year? Never heard about DrunkDuck.com - will check that as well.

    Kudos on drawing again.
    " to work out a way of juggling drawing the sequential pages and scripting the next part of the story." Ever heard of an open source program called Celtx? Could be really good for just that.
    It's great to have a job in this field - maybe it can fuel your stories on many levels.
    "I'll drop you a quick Private Message on how comics are produced" Please do. Thanks

    Isn't it the same thing? I'd like to draw a comic too someday, yes, but I'd have to learn a lot of things prior to that. Any development in your comics that I could read?

    I messed up there, sorry. What I was meaning was "capacity", fits better. People who are able to learn and retain, who like to acquire skills and knowledge. It's very admirable.

    If you change your mind - feel free to share a link if you start posting some work in process on this or the bigger comic project you talked about earlier.

    @rep; Pointing that out, your indifference. It doesn't make you sound badass. Something closer to a fourteen year old claiming to be a psychopath. It's quite pathetic.

    I actually really like volunteering. I just don't like the people in my class. So, I don't want to be around them on a Sunday, when I should be around people who aren't them.
