I had a brief moment of designer but I'm done now.
All that knowledge about four color process and spot colors and paragraph styles and libraries will have to go back into cold storage.
If I make another comic I might letter it with InDesign. It actually works pretty effectively to make tidy speech bubbles and I bet it would work nicely for layout too, if I actually used things like gutters.
I guess I'm kind of depressed right now. I feel like the only way I can ever use my skillset to make a notable amount of money is to start selling anime fanart paintings, or go get a degree, which will put me many years into debt, just to get a piece of paper that says yeah, actually, Adobe programs ARE my bitch. Then I'll get a job making lattes where I have to take out my two piercings because they actually DO discriminate against people even if the disclaimer says they don't, because you need 3 years of experience to actually get the job, or to have a hot bod, or to be a man.

I'm T****** M****, and mostly, I do book covers. (You know who to call.)
