Anonymous asked: hey, so i already did the art school thing and have been applying to places and it's been two years since graduating with no luck whatsoever. I work a shitty job to pay rent and dunno, just getting really tired of it- any advice for someone trying to break into storyboarding? thanks.
i got out of school in 2005. i worked retail on and off until a few years ago. in the mean time i made comics and drew a lot. it can be really frustrating living paycheck to paycheck and seeing no end in sight. the path is different for everyone. keep drawing and share your work with the people that inspire you and your peers. hopefully you’ll be able to work on a project that has meaning for you. that doesn’t always happen, tho. it may happen soon, it may happen later. don’t be afraid to make changes in your life in order to survive.
i guess the best thing to do now is to tell stories. make comics. work on your writing. draw and write about things that are important to you. it’ll help you build a strong voice. good luck :T
