  9. tsujitoons asked: would you ever work for Disney animation or Warner Brothers animation if they offered you complete creative control over one over any project of your choice or would you just use one of your comics to be adapted by either of their studios ? do you think that say if Disney or Warner would Adapt the Thickness or Loose ? do you think they would take a risk with your material or Sanitize it to hell ? or do you think Japanese Anime Studio Madhouse would be do your work justice ?

  10. Anonymous asked: your work is incredibly inspiring. is it important to try and find an agency to represent your work? or do you think that's unnecessary to having success as a comic artist

    hey, thank you! i’m the worst person to ask about this, since i’ve never had an agent, i’ve never really sought one out, and i’ve never been approached by one.

    i have friends who’ve had a lot of success working with literary agents. i definitely don’t think they’re necessary, but i guess that depends on what your bar for being a “successful comic artist” is. if being a successful comics artist means sleeping three hours a night, stress vomiting and living off a diet of beer and leftover delivery food, then you definitely do not need a literary agent to be a successful comics artist, and i am the most successful comics artist in the entire world

    since the money and stakes involved in comics are so low, i like that my professional relationships with publishers, editors and collaborators are (for the most part) uncomplicated. like, if i have an idea for a comic, all i have to do is stumble into the Koyama Press office and go “Hey Anne, what about an alternate universe where the beds lie on top of people? Thirty two pages and I’ll need an eighty thousand dollar advance. Patrick says hi.”

    (just kidding, that’s not how Koyama Press works. Koyama Press operates out of a secluded European castle and not an office)

     

  11. New Leather Space Man strip up on Hazlitt. Broke up the format a bit for this one - started drawing this pixel comic while going a bit stir crazy on the Ant Colony tour, drew it with my laptop’s touchpad on trains between cities.
