Skin by SimplySilent | Edited by Hyanna-Natsu


Sun Oct 26, 2014, 4:38 PM
the stars rock themselves
to sleep
there is nothing left;

they have peeled the moon

like a ripe fruit, coil
of pearly skin draping the hills,
only god
what they did to her core,
where they buried her seeds
in the earth

(i put my ear to the ground now and listen, for her children in their wombs of dirt)

“Whatever happened to that guy? The guy that drew that thing?  

Sound familiar?

Comic careers are like any other career in entertainment: if you don't stay relevant and adapt to a trend, you'll eventually peak and then bottom out. But there are more things that can help end a career. Here's a list of 5 that I've been thinking about lately.



The creator does something that somehow goes viral, turning his (or her) readers against him. Bad behavior at a convention, sexual harassment online, or a semi-racist Tweet made worse by bumbling attempts to correct it. Or maybe the creator gets blamed for something innocent: innocent comments taken out of context, or involvement in a controversial project that he had no say over. Whatever the case, “social media take-downs” can harm careers, leaving a permanent black mark on your career.


I imagine this one is the most common: no matter how hard you work—and no matter how much ass you kissed—you're never able to get wider recognition by the industry. And because of this, you never get the books you want, the fanfare you deserve, and the paycheck to help with those bills. I think creators are all prepared to pay their dues for a certain set of years, but eventually they expect to make it out and find a way to cut back on work and enjoy their success. But comics is a demanding industry, and a lot of us burn out.


A few people hit the lottery very young—an amazing gig, an awesome rate, a killer writing/drawing partner, and high sales. And because they never paid their dues, they have a hard time later on when the industry throws them a curve ball. Most of us struggle—and that sucks. But that struggle also builds character, and those life lessons come in handy when you have a tough year: you're more likely to deal with the depression, find new ways to motivate yourself, and cut back on spending.

Rapid success hurting a career is unfortunate, because it's not usually the creator's fault that he (she) hit the lottery. But if he doesn't step back and re-access his understanding of the industry, he may never snap out of it.


Creators spend a ton of time alone in a room. We're all in danger of becoming an island, and when a brain is unsupervised, it might find it's way into a bottle. Other forms of addiction are drugs, sex, money, beating another creator out of a gig, and fame. I suppose something like “fame addiction” can lead to more success, but I'll bet it's better to find other ways to motivate yourself. Like trying to earn the respect of the artists you also admire.


A very small percentage of creators get so successful that they lose touch. They're surrounded by yes men, they're so wealthy that their monetary motivation for working is gone, or maybe their ego stops them from seeing the mistakes in their own work. Young and hungry artists—driven by insecurity and the need to pay their bills—generally make the best art (not all will agree). Old and satisfied artists need to find new ways to motivate the second act of their career, or risk being forgotten or dismissed.


(I know I said 5, but a friend pointed this one out to me yesterday)

((And yes, I ran this list by a lot of comic creators first, and generally they agreed these things are true))

A creator's negativity eventually burns too many bridges, rotting their career from the inside. Maybe it never actually ends their career, but it's a cycle that keeps feeding itself: creator is unhappy, creator lashes out (maybe without realizing it), creator's editor fires back, creator removed from book, totally reinforcing creator's initual negative opinion of the book. Word of mouth happens, so that the creator's next editor is pre-warned of creator's negativity. If the creator is talented enough, publishers might be willing to excuse that creator's negativity if the pages are awesome.

So if you're naturally negative, try to get that shit contained. Bitch to your friends and family, but keep it professional with your employers when you can. You get a few free “freak-outs” per decade—don't go using them all at once.


So be honest with yourself, and chat about this with your friends to get their opinion: what's most likely to take you out? It's an complex subject, and while negative (and over-simplistic) in its descriptions, I think this sort of thing can lead to positive changes if we keep an eye out for our shortcomings.

And if you think of another that I've missed, please respond!


Stealing this idea from Point-Master-Pete (hope that's okay with them!)

In celebration of one of my favorite holidays, I wanted to hold a giveaway of sorts with various different prizes! Please read this journal before entering!

There are a total of 20 treat bags to choose from. Some contain treats (one of the prizes listed below) and other contain tricks (nothing!). If you picked the right bag, you get the corresponding prize. If you picked a trick bag, you sadly get nothing! :c The bags are already pre-labeled to their corresponding prize in a word document. My sister Terrierking can verify this! 

I'll be drawing 10 numbers. So only 10 of the 20 bags will be chosen. If I draw your number but your bag was already chosen by a different winner, I'll redraw a different number. That way I'm not giving out say, 10 of the same prize!

Jack O Lantern by Angelic-Sakuras Must be a watcher of mine!
Jack O Lantern by Angelic-Sakuras Must +fav this journal!
Jack O Lantern by Angelic-Sakuras Comment with the trick or treat bag number you choose.
Jack O Lantern by Angelic-Sakuras If you feature this journal in a poll or journal, you can either a) pick another bag to double your chances or b) choose to double your prize. Please specify which you would like when you comment with the link.
Note: each person will only get one number assigned by me. If you feature and choose option a, you'll receive a second number and get to pick a second bag. If you choose option b, you do not get a second number but your prize will be double if you're drawn as a winner.
