OccasionallyLysander's Profile Picture

A. Edwards
United Kingdom
I am a postgraduate with a Masters in Scriptwriting currently living and working in Somerset. Currently, I am gradually building up a portfolio of qualifications, work experience and scripts. With this, I aim to create the foundation for my future professional life, whilst also building up a backlog of projects I can present to editors and producers.

It's a slow grind, but since when has life been any different? I mean I'm moving to China in February, and I never saw that coming this time last year.
Interests
Greetings from China.

So, first things first. I have decided to clean out my DeviantArt gallery of all the remaining Joe Jones related content. Many of you will be annoyed by this, and I can only give you my reasons for doing so and hope this satisfies you. If it doesn't, and you're still mad well, that's your choice.

So last year, I started submitting comic scripts to the website Muscle Fan Comics. I've had over a half a dozen scripts accepted, and so far only one submission has been rejected. It was around the time when I first started submitting scripts that my life was starting to move in a new direction. I now live in China, Beijing specifically, where I work as an English teacher at a public primary school.

My main focus now is in both developing as a teacher and earning enough money to pay off my student loans. I send back so much per month to cover my repayments in the UK, so my finances are now more tied up and focused. This means no more commissioning art, at least not for the foreseeable future. And even then, if I do commission something, chances are I will not release it personally.

Since I started commissions back in 2007 with my Joe's Journal stuff, I've always just thrown up any art I commissioned online without any real thought. But gradually, as my projects got larger and the costs increased I started to realise my hobby was costing me much more than I could afford. The final nail in the coffin of my enthusiasm came when I decided to do an artist a favour and commission something from them at a time when their finances were doing poorly. I paid the full order upfront, instead of splitting the payment half and half.

To this day, all the individual in question has done is sent me some mock-up 3D images. Oh sure, they apologise whenever I bring the situation up, but the art isn't getting done. They have done commissions for others that have been completed and released. They do their projects. But my 4-page comic? Nothing. I doubt it will ever be done, and since they still live hand-to-mouth, I am not going to get back the $200 I paid for the commission either if I asked for a refund.

I'm over it though. I no longer care if I get the work or not.

Moving on though, since I'm no longer commissioning like I used to, I figured I would clean my gallery and change things. I'll now just be uploading the colour covers of whatever comic scripts of mine get picked up.

It is the end of an era. An end that has been coming for a while, I think.

So, as I sit in my school office on the last day of school before the summer, I wish you all a good day.

A quick update on that long overdue commission. The first two pages look done in my opinion, but I figured that i'd see what you thought.

Page 3 is about halfway done, and then on to Page 4.
