    wow.
    so when does 178ish comments in a work day’s time turn into separate threads for artists looking for scripts* and writers looking for pictures*?
    or everyone goes en masse to another site/service? panels and pixels? comicspace (quick look: 5000+ writer tags, 4000+ artist tags)?

    what do you do with this onslaught Mr. Ellis?

    Me, Mr Cranky Pants. I would have the comics world at my feet. Or maybe just waist-level.

    I've shown some shite here before, but more never hurts. Not in bad way, at least. I give you (more) PINK DOG.

    I make paintings and prints (elreyart.com), but I would LOVE to make comics.

    (And have been for a long time, off and on, if you count grade-school assignment margins.)

    Writers, if you like my stuff, PLEASE contact me. Email, Flickr, etc. in my profile.

    (I de-lurked just to post this. I feel so naked. Hold me.)

    Considering all my most admired artists and writers are in comics, and I aspire to both, this'd be a no-brainer, right?

    It occurred to me only recently though that I usually only have one creative ability at a time, verbal or visual. Strange, I know. But I liked the idea of making something that spanned both, using my photography to illustrate a story, but in a comics frame (in terms of panels, captions, story movement) I did a six page script and laid out one page of it. It took me more or less forever to get it right. It was a lot of fun, and I'll probably work on more of it at some point.

    So yeah. I want to make comics, but I don't want to work in the comics industry. I can't imagine actually trying to work to a deadline, and that alone would screw me.

    I have a webcomic short story online. I'm putting the finishing touches (graytones/lettering) on my first graphic novel, which I also plan to serialize online.

    Finishing up the first issue of a book I've been working on for a while longer than originally intended. Hope to have it out by Wizard World Texas.

    I'm currently working on a few projects with my artist/friend Asher. Our main focus is a ongoing graphic novel called Judas. We hope to make it down to the baltimore comics con in sept to promote our book. If you wish, you can check it out on the myspace at http://www.myspace.com/absolutelynot

    I write and letter. I also edit comics for a living, which is either an advantage or a handicap, depending on how you look at it--it sure as hell makes self publishing and zines somewhat more politically loaded propositions. I should really get around to coming up with a decent psuedonym. Or something.

    Hadn't been to panel and pixel before, but I'll check it out now.

    Make comics? Yes. I did a webcomic for a couple of years and keep meaning to get back into it. (Life and school has gotten in the way)
    Work in comics? I dunno. Maybe.

    I used to work for Valiant and Milestone comics before I worked in animation. I wanted to get back in to comics again, but only for something I at least helped create. I've been developing something for a web comic for the last year and a half between my animation gigs and my painting work. I hope to have the comic up and running sometime next year.

    Yep. I wanna write.

    Currently working as a film editor/ assistant editor. Love doing that, but love writing comics as well, and I've been working on a few scripts that I'm planning to find artists for in the next few months. My plan also may involve self publishing a few short stories to get my work out there in print.

    I'd like to write comics at some point. I'm working as a freelance writer now, mainly copy and content. Hopefully more creative gigs will makes themselves apparent as time goes on.

    The dream of writing at least one comic project has been rattling around in my brain box for a while now. At some point I might be able to do something about it.

    Working on some stuff right now. Nothing ready to share yet, but its coming along well; right now I'm trying to see just what I'm capable of and how far I can take it.

    It's one of those things I'd like to do, but I don't seem to be able to devote enough time to do well (or even well enough to get better). Did a weekly one-cell for a year and ... gave up, for now. Who knows what will happen next?

    Anybody see trends here? Like the artist who's a game designer/animator as a job and hasn't got the time but would like to do more comic work? Or the writer who can't draw currently but is trying? Or the writer with the idea but hasn't put it down on paper yet? I find the trends interesting.
    I find the plans, the methods used to get product out to the public, encouraging. Bring on the new ideas. You put it out there, I'll buy it.

    I would love to write a comic. My big plan right now is to write a novel that gets turned into a comic.

    On a different note, a friend of mine is being turned into a comic. Will post more details as they become available. So one option is - be interesting enough that a publishing company wants to immortalize you in comic form.

    I'm trying to write a comic with a friend of mine. Unfortunately, neither of us can draw, so I either need to get better at drawing, or I need to find an artist.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    I could afford to get my act together quite a bit and make a comic about the harddrives that died with all my artwork on them maybe. I would love to write comics but I'd have to be careful for a lot of reasons not the least reason being I'm a raging lunatic. In the past I've been satisfied with people writing comics <i>about</i> me but maybe I could get around to writing something myself.
