Well, seems that I've dome something and I'm pretty sure it has to lead me somewhere.
I practically had to leave my job as an English and French teacher at the school I was working. It's alright, everything is fine and the principal was kind and nothing bad happened. It was all because I was about to be called from a certain company to begin working as a graphic designer... but it's been some time and my heart is telling me that this is it. Thanks to my boss, I'm still doing some French classes on mondays, which is very nice, but the rest of the week I'm looking for a chance to get where I'm going.
So, that leads me to the reason why I write this journal: now that I am "free", I'm thinking hard. My life has always been a bunch of doubts. Where to go? What to do? What branch of the artistic-job world shoud I choose...? But what I really wanted was always there: creating.
I've seen lots of people from DA, most of them friends or people I admire, that have begun their campaign on Patreon and are now earning more than I earned when I was working. And they have reached a wonderful goal that I wish with all my heart. How did they get there? Some of them began posting comic pages for free just as I did... and others didn't, just threw the campaign and voilà! 100 patrons supporting the cause! Man, that's amazing! Specially because some supporters even pledge with hihg ammounts, such as 50$. I'm not compalining, on the contrary, I'm super happy for them! And I want to get there too and feel that I'm doing the right thing.
So, if there's anybody there who is making a living from Patreon, can you give me some advice about it? Any ideas or telling me story of how did you reached your dream? I need something inspiring right now. Just help me find the way! And another question for supporters!
Would you consider supporting me on Patreon
if I began posting the Will this ever end...?
comic series again? I would work on both comics, illustrations and even goodies. I know somebody who make mugs, badges and stuff. When do I start? I'm opened to anything you can tell me to light my darkness up.
Even if you're not a Patron, please, say something if you want.
Thanks for being there!
