Some art/webcomic advice
I got this really thoughtful question on my tumblr a week or two ago in regards to art/webcomics:
"Hello K-bo, I Have been aspiring to be a webcomic artist much like yourself for a long time. Viewing your artwork and your achievements inspire me to reach out for my dreams. I wasn't able to see you at Fan Expo this year so I wasn't able to ask you this in person. I feel like I'm at a point where I'm comfortable enough with my art and style to start a webcomic... but I have no idea where to start... Do you have any advice? Thank you!"
I wanted to share my answer with you guys since it might be relevant to your interests. I hope at least some of it is useful to you. Here goes...
"First off, that’s awesome and I’m honored to have inspired you in any way. You should be very proud of yourself for being ready and willing to start this journey.
Now this is a pretty bro

I've been gone again for a while, and I feel terrible about it.

I've been denying this for years, but I think I need to admit I have a real problem with manic obsessive streaks of productivity followed by a "just a quick break" that turns into a months-long unproductive lull.
...
Moderation is something I do not do well. I attempt to set a routine that lets me be productive without draining myself to avoid this kind of thing, but I get wrapped up in the excitement and imagining what more I could be doing and I ignore everything else in my life. Then I finally crash and can't stand to look at anything I've done for weeks because I find myself missing either time with my boyfriend or sleep... usually replacing the manic drawing with manic gaming or netflix marathons. Then it becomes less about me not being motivated to draw again and more about me realizing I just repeated my whole cycle again and feeling stupid and lazy on top of unmotivated. I still have no good answer for my problem.

I wanted to thank you all for being so encouraging and responsive when I actually am producing stuff. It's usually reading over old comments that gets me finally inspired to drag myself out of a slump and draw again.

I'm gonna try again. If nothing else, you'll get a bout of more pages and drawings followed by another long lull. But if I can adjust and regulate myself better this time, it'll be a more steady stream of drawings at regular intervals. I'm going to try out one page a week instead of "one page every day I have off work" just to try keeping myself under some semblance of control.
At the moment I've been working more on the script, and have made some fairly major rewrites that affect what happens directly next in the comic, so I ask for your patience as I finish hashing this bit out. I can't guarantee a new page this weekend or next, but I'll give it my best.

You guys are all awesome. Thank you for putting up with me.

Yo I saw you said you were having some trouble with architecture and I remembered this cool thing: le-mec.tumblr.com/post/5975735…
I guess it's mostly for interiors but I thought it was cool and might help streamline things.
