I'm so confused
People with the best intentions tell me I shouldn’t pigeon hole myself with comics and that instead I should do art/design. That’s nice and all. But then you look at the real world: I’ve never wanted do art or design I’ve done more or less serious comic work on and off for six years, the last three with increasing seriousness and commitment It’s about as likely for...
The head of the department of visual communication in NCAD basically told me I shouldn’t stay in NCAD because I won’t get to do anything that’s relevant to what I want to do in life.

Not in a happy way you understand, just excited for the big change we could sense. She’s always been better informed than me, so I was better...
What a week!
So tomorrow is the first proper assessment in college and now we’ll all find out how well we’ve done or not done. I have to admit I’m nervous, because things are quite messy and it’s often unclear just what we’re supposed to do. It also means we have a day off, so I have a nice long weekend to look forward to. My side projects are kind of standing still now because...
