It can be difficult to decide what to do, what direction to go in. If you’ve been wondering if a career in comics and graphic novels might be right for you, here are some questions to ask yourself:
1) Am I passionate about sequential story telling?
2) Will I feel I missed the boat if I don’t give this a try?
3) Do I love to draw?
4) Am I willing to consistently work hard to improve my skills?
5) Do I find it exciting to think about exploring new ways of telling a story visually?
6) Do I get immersed in my work?
7) Am I happy working alone?
8) Do I like to attend Comicons and conventions and can I see myself showing my portfolio, and making contacts in that environment ?
9) Am I willing to use my illustration skills in many different ways to support myself while I establish myself as a comic book/graphic novel artist?
