The truth is that I will be making stuff whether or not I get paid for it. I have been making stuff my entire life. Sometimes I get paid for it. It would be nice to get paid for it a little more regularly. For most of my life, I focused primarily on novels, but webcomics offer a greater reach, so I've been making them for 2 years, along with some other visual projects.
My art skills aren't as wonderful as a person could hope for, but as you can see from the above comic panel, which I drew early on in the process, I can get better with practice.
