When you put all your books side by side and realize they're pilling up, you need to start taking yourself more seriously.
I always think about "What have I already done?" when I'm coming up with a new story. Also, I think "What haven't I done yet?".
"Am I saying something different with this new story, or it's just more of the same?"
"Am I saying anything at all?"
Maybe I think too much about comics and worry too much about what the story is about, and maybe that's why I'm not the perfect candidate to only draw other people's comics.
I had fun drawing the stories others have written, I've learned a lot, and i drew stuff I would probably never have drawn in my own stories.
I'm a better artist because of these stories.
But are the stories better?
Do they say anything I can believe and relate?
I think too much, I guess.
And that's not a bad thing.
