    That’s really cool! I really like it. I’m just starting out on comics, and I was wondering if you had any tips for me?

    1. Choose cheap, simple tools so nothing is precious.
    2. Make comics that you will finish: a page ( as opposed to a graphic novel or long story), if not a page, then half a page, if not a half page, then a single panel–just complete it! I tell everyone, the minute you complete something your mind will know it’s up to the task. If you don’t finish, your brain will give up & it will be harder to make stuff (not impossible just harder).
    3. Make very bad comics–just complete them!
    4. Read, write, draw (repeat)

    Nothing is a better teacher than reading & doing.

    Good luck! xo
