Next week sees some significant changes at home, Annette goes back to work (just part time) and I’ll end up looking after Nathan on Mondays, Tuesday afternoons and Wednesdays. College finishes next week and, at this point (again) I’m really thinking of throwing in the towel – clearly me and education don’t mix.
But now, now I’ve spotted the pattern of my life – it’s a bit of a fool’s paradise to ever think that working for 2000AD would ever pay me enough to make drawing my full time job and I can’t do much beyond 2000AD simply because I don’t have the time to spend on samples (which may go nowhere). It’s unlikely I’d be foolish enough to walk away from my day job (which, when all said and down is perfect for me) and unless I walk away from it I’ll never be in a position to gamble on my future as a comic artist. So there we have it… I keep doing what I do, I’m just not sure how long I can keep going before boredom kicks in.
How does one get into computer games design anyway?
