Well, it had to happen–so yeah.
With the success of Felipe Smith’s pilgrimage to Japan–I’ve started thinking about the greatness and pain he’s probably experiencings, but I also thought about the doors it could potentially open for the select few non-Japanese mangaka that could make it there.
But with that…it caused me to really look at my art objectively (to some maybe too harshly) and I feel like I really need to get better. I know I do some things well but I guess I want to ensure not being rejected which is next to impossible but I just want to get in, lol. Of course, this happens RIGHT when I experience an artist’s block…
Which totally sucks and I’m trying to get over it–so I’m asking other artists here what the hell do you do when this happens? How do you handle it? How long does it take for you to get over it?
