how did I get into comics?i have got to be the worst person to ask "how did you get in the industry."More Like This
i got lucky.
i was tattooing and went to sdcc 06, showing up without a badge on the very last year they sold on site badges. had packets/samples of work, showed them around, met contacts (and blond) and got a test job based on my samples and contacts. passed the test job (failed one too...shhhh) and the rest really is history. in the first couple years i went to as many conventions as i could pay to go to, always paying. but i met everybody. thats important. and never stopped working.
that initial break is what most people are looking for, because when they ask me how i got in, they are looking for answers. and me saying i got lucky, it's always having to let somebody down.
sure i can tell you how most people get in, but you should ask them instead
