It's a weird situation when everyone has access to the means of production. It's good for production, but at the same time, there is so much shit out there to dig through.

I can't really relate to your college work, since writing and producing was not on my radar back then. Having to deal with it now, though, It seems like production is the easier part. Promotion seems key to getting anything done.

Outta curiosity:
-Have you dealt with any of the newer software? I'm trying to learn more about the creation process my Illustrator is dealing with.
-If you could rate the work-load of Pencilling, Inking, Coloring and Lettering as percentages of TOTAL WORK-LOAD: how would you rate them?
-Is there anywhere I could see your work?
