I've been busting with this news for awhile but kept forgetting to ask the other person involved if he minded if I post about it. See, this other person asked if I'd like to work with him on a couple of projects. Draw the graphic novels he wrote.
I wore a smile for about a week straight after he asked me. It's one thing to know you can do something but it's a whole 'nother matter to have someone else believe you can do it. And to have that someone else be someone who knows his stuff, knows comics, how to write and be someone you've respected for awhile...In the words of Widget (you geeks know who I mean), "Oh gosh, oh golly, oh wow!" It's like I poured the concrete last summer when I started this blog but this offer finally set it. Now I can walk on it, now I've got a foundation to really start building on.
And boy, I've got to start building. This is going to present challenges I've really avoided up until now. Places where I've put aside practice, like landscapes and paneling, in preference to easier stuff. Frankly, as excited as I was when I was asked, I was equally as scared. I almost had the sense that my bluff was being called. I was being dared to do what I kept yammering on about. I have some skills but they're far from a complete set. So can I do it? Guess we'll see.
Anyhow, Thank you for asking me partner. I'm thrilled that I'm working with you.
