Thanks for 30,000 Subscribers on Youtube!
Finally hit the 30,000 subscriber mark on Youtube. Very happy with the results of the channel and just wanted to say tanks everyone! Couldn't have done it without your support. I have learned a lot since starting this channel a few years back. I have realized how powerful the internet can be to artists that are trying to make a name for themselves. When I first started making comics at the age of 18 I had the toughest time figuring out how I would get anyone to notice my work. Anyone that could ever give me a job making comics and seeing them go to print anyways. Most people would tell me that I had to move to New York or live in California to be a professional artist. And maybe back then that was the case but now with the internet and digital art, you can work with people all over the world. I know because Youtube has actually helped me do that. I have taught classes with a company from Australia, I have produced Storyboards for companies in New York, California, and who knows where else. ( They don't always tell you where they are. Only how quick they need the work! lol. ) And even sold a commission job in Russia one time. So it really is an exceptional time to be an artist. And take it from me, someone who just made their living for the past 15 years by having a studio on a busy street and living off walk-ins that this way of life is scary but way less overhead! There are pros and cons to any business model but I had a minimal overhead of about 2-3 thousand dollars a month before I made my first penny. Now I work out of a basement studio and my products are digital. Big change in my life and still taking some getting used to but I am very excited for the future!
And back to the channel. This is basically the my companies store front now. Anytime something new is in the works you will hear about it hear first. Anytime I release a new product there will be a video explaining what it is and how it works. Anytime I create a new piece of art, well....you get the idea! So once again thanks for the milestone and supporting my work. You rock!
Now back to my favorite project....Blackstone! :)
