My friends, today I finally received my 6dollarshirts.com
They took almost a month to arrive, but that's no problem ;_; I heard all kind of dreadful stories about these guys, so I'm just grateful that I have my t-shirts and that the order is complete and right ;o; !
As a honest reviewer, let me say that the t-shirts sure are LOW quality. The fabric of the pink one is so thin that it's almost transparent --But I guess that that's expected, I just paid 18 dollars for all of them, I don't think that I can't pretend too much XD
I hope hat they'll survive a few washing decently, though-- I really love them (expecially the Poe's one!), so it'd be a pity to lose them too soon ;_;
This said, yesterday I sketched some of my Dorian Gray
book, I posted some previews over Facebook
and-- Well, I'm really sorry to admit it, but I'm quite unpopular, as a comic artist.
I mean, I knew it already, seeing how many doujinshi leftovers I have in my room, but when I see that other artists have people poking them when they delay the release of a page of their webcomic or got a thousand "Likes" over pointless, whiny posts I seriously wonder if what I do has some importance in this "scene".
I know that it's not classy, but I'm quite ENVIOUS of these people, even if I know that they are quite more skilled than me, even if I know that "envy" is an unbecoming feeling that doesn't suit me and my proud nature. But that's it. No matter how lovely these people are and how much I love them and their work, deep inside of me I ENVY them and I see them as RIVALS to ANNIHILATE.
This can be quite constructive and ispirational, to say the truth, but-- What's the point on working hard on something if your passion and hard work is not recognized..?
I wanted to take a batch of commissions on December to fund the printing of a few books (the Dorian Gray
thingie and an artbook, and I was thinking of resuming the work on Verflucht
to propose it to some publishers), but well, maybe this year I should just chill out and enjoy the Christmas season instead of getting overworked for something that none is interested in :/
--I'm sorry to let you read me bitching about popularity like a pathetic teenager, but as much I do what I do for fun, the sake of sharing and to refine my skills, I mostly do that for THE GLORY.
If I can't have my glory, assuming that I don't gain any money, what's the point of it..?
Damn, this whole year sucked. I hope that it'll be over soon >_>;
