|Every Child Is Born an Artist in Some|
Fast forward to my late high school years, the passion was there but slightly tainted. I was not telling stories anymore. I was selling ideas and concepts in an attempt to 'wow' others. The problem with this was that I couldn't complete a single comic book in a period of two years. This was interesting considering I used to complete three comic-books every week in primary school. What happened? The perpetual heaps of wasted paper in my dustbin may have had some answers...
From my experience, if you think of everything as a whole, your mind will never get past the mental block already imposed on it. You will never begin the story because you have no clue who will colour/ink/pencil/letter so what's the point of writing the script? You will never find a publisher or self-publish because "how will I protect my work legally from a thief with deeper pockets?" So many things need to be done and your simple ballpoint art just doesn't cut it anymore against the "big boys" in the industry. You need new expensive inking pens and you must have a unique style that will impress all the "heavyweights," in a manner of speaking. This is not to say that comic-book creators are fat but I digress. You forget the days when it was just enough to tell a story and enjoy yourself doing it.
