"Well meaning adults can easily destroy a child’s love of reading - do not discourage children from reading because you feel they’re reading the wrong thing. There is no such thing as the wrong thing to be reading and no bad fiction for kids." - Neil Gaiman

I remember the strange panic attack before I went on to give this speech: the conviction that I wouldn’t be able to read what I’d written, or speak in articulate sentences. I wound up talking (in my head at least I was talking) in a really slow and measured way, because I was not certain any of it would make sense, or that I’d be able to get through it.

Which I mention only because I get lots of messages in Tumblr asks, asking how I got to be so good at this, or how people can do things if they are scared or stressed or things are too hard. And the only answer I really have is, you do it anyway. But maybe you breathe and do it a bit slower than normally.

Charles Schulz Documentary

I don’t know what it is, but this documentary hits the nail on the head for so many of the ways I think and feel.

I don’t know if it’s a creative thing, or what. My guess would be it’s just the kind of mind a lot of artist have, striving for that one thing, but never seem to find it, so we almost cocoon ourselves in our art.

Anyways, love this documentary on Charles Schulz for more than one reason.

Hey everyone, I’ve just launched a Kickstarter to fund the printing of my new comic Urban Myth Investigators! Please help spread the word by share this. Thanks! 


This is great on multiple levels.

Artists, we shouldn’t let the Nikeness distract us from the message.

Often, when I'm writing and having difficulty, I'll think 'let me try looking at this from totally different angle' and I end up basically rewriting the whole thing. I go cycles of doing this and being unsatisfied and retooling again with the same idea. Do you think at certain point you should just let something be or keep tooling with it until you feel it's right? Thank you for your time.

This is a common mistake and a very common question right here on this humble tumble.

 you must push past this cycle and finish what you started and then move onto the next project and then finish what you started and again and again and again.

 one of the great lessons of my life is that no piece of artwork is ever finished it’s just done.  molding and crafting and getting it just right is a beautiful thing… and for me it’s where the magic happens.  but then learn to let go. learn to trust the process.

 a nice thing to do is put it away for a while, a couple of days, clear your mind, work on something else and come back to it. sometimes new ideas reveal themselves that bring the whole piece together or you may reread it and find yourself relieved that it doesn’t suck as much as he thought it did
