Visitors

Listen up, maggots.

You are not special.
You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake.
You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else.
You are not a brooding outcast.
You are not an intellectual in a sea of idiots.
You are not a victim.
You are not innocent.
You are not different.
You are not misunderstood.
You are not immune to criticism.
You are not being 'trolled' by everyone who insults you.
You are not cool and interesting.
You are not a character from an anime.
You are just a part of something that will always be infinitely larger than yourself.
Get over it.
I'm writing this because I want to reflect on how far I've come in my life. Particularly since my early 'Deviant art' days. I used to have friends that didn't really care about me and often ignored or insulted me for practically no reason, or that traced/eyeballed pictures and stole my ideas, or that... had very unethical views of how to treat and regard animals. This was during a time when I was desperate for anyone to be my friend I guess. I wanted to be a professional artist but I was surrounded by unsuccessful, people who didn't want to support my goals and just wanted to tear me down for their own gain. I used to have people like that as friends in real life, too. It took a while to finally gather the courage to cut all these idiots out of my life permanently, and they did not go easily.

I had to endure loneliness for a while, but now I have way more friends than I've ever had in my life, and none of them treat me like that. All of them actually care about me and my work and have helped me succeed and have bought my comics and come to my parties and listened to me rant. I'm still pretty unpopular on Deviant art, but fortunately that isn't the real world, so I don't care. I always wanted to be a published comic book artist, and it has taken so long to finally get there, but it's been well worth it, because the feeling of seeing strangers at conventions flip through my printed work and want to buy it even though they've never heard of me, and tell me they enjoy it, is unparalleled by anything I've ever experienced.

So on that note, some things will be different soon. I need to take this all to the next level. In the next month or so I'll be doing a few things; I'm going to launch my other webcomic series--a revamping of an old story from my childhood. I'm going to get a new tablet with a screen, which hopefully will expedite my work. I'm going to launch a Patreon service, which essentially will allow people to contribute money to my comic in exchange for various treats every month. If that sounds like something you're interested in, keep it in mind, because everything helps.

Hopefully this will raise my income to a level where I can finally improve my lifestyle and get out of this pit of hell. I've been told by my bank that I'm eligible for a mortgage, which was a huge surprise to me. I'm devoting this year to improving my credit so I'm eligible for even better mortgage rates, to improving my income so I can keep up with property taxes and so I can help my boyfriend with some of his medical problems, and to doing more and more comics, and then in a year or two, I'm going to purchase a condo so I can finally have a stable adult life. I never thought I'd be able to have that with art. I'm so excited.

Things are different now.

I am James, I draw comic books. Sometimes for myself, sometimes for other people. I also draw commissions. Yes, that is my job. Yes, it pays all my bills. If you would like to pay my bills, commission me to draw you art.

My own comic is available here: creatorsedgepress.com/store/gr… It's about drugs and science and mutants and faggotry.

I never actually gave a fuck about steampunk, but fate would have it that when my best friend dragged me into it, people liked me and I became popular even though I'm a total poser.

I play Pathfinder and I'm about to GM my own campaign for the first time.

If the code to your locker is 24, 0, 17, I appreciate the hat.

Hey, wow, my boyfriend has a DA now!
You should look at his art and stuff, because he needs to finish more of it, and maybe he'd finish it if people looked at it and were like 'hey, you should finish more art'.

Gave you a llama, because I LOVE your response to the person's art description that whined and whined about "hating faves".
