So, I posted a big post on Facebook about how disappointed I was with my performance at the Eek fest. The sales were crap, and I felt unsupported by my community in general. Well, it’s been a week, and I have had a long time to reflect on the situation, and make plans for the future. Well, I think that what I’m doing just has a very limited audience. I’m trying to get comics fans interested in independent comics, and they’re not. They want pop culture stuff, and that’s fine. I like pop culture stuff. I buy pop culture stuff. I just don’t make pop culture stuff, and I don’t want to.
I think my next step is to go underground. Ditch the pop culture crowd like the pop culture fairs and the expos, and go for more of a ‘zine crowd. I’ve been moving towards making my work more kid-friendly, and parents are not buying my stuff, so why am I doing it? I thought about going for more of a webcomic thing, by I don’t even enjoy updating my blog, much less uploading comics every week. So, I’m going paper still, and grittier, meant for adults. Taking a different art style and different aesthetic.
While I’ll still be doing some superhero stuff like the New Recruits, I’ll also be starting The Psychedelic Postman. Expect everything you wouldn’t see in a kid-friendly book!
So, I’m getting refreshed, reinspired, and regrouped. Expect photo updates on instagram soon!
