I'm doing a webcomic on the side ( http://optichouse.com ), but that's not what's putting food on the table.
Personally I work in a costume shop which is kinda cool
all sorts of interesting stuff providing all kinds of inspiration for characters, plots, new costume designs (I'm also an amateur costumer)... lots of superhero stuff
the neat thing is that I have an understanding with my boss. She can get a tad demanding on some things, but I can make a little extra making bodices and doublets. hopefully with this first bunch for this year will be enough to pick up some more Prismacolors.
Advice? Remember everyone else will be just as nervous as you and it's the scariest before you start. Oh, and showing up with enough homemade cookies for everyone for the first break never hurts.
