Dream Job by Zombiesmile Dream Job by Zombiesmile
Being a Comic Artist  is a tough life. :C

♥ Please Read ♥
If you'd like more mini comics more often, please check out my :star:PATREON page:star: and support me! Even $1 a month would help me out. :')
If I reach my goal, I will start working on a fixed schedule.
You can get lots of little goodies and everyone would benefit from this since my comics will remain free and available online. 

Thanks to everyone for all your support all these years, it really means the world to me!

~Mikiko

When your a kid you want to grow up faster. When you grow up, you wish you were a kid again. Giving yourself multitasking is probably the worst thing an adult can do!

I like this idea of comic from an artist's life.

:objection: v2 Objection!
If you don't know anything about raising a family, then please be reminded that you did not popped out from nowhere.
To raise a family takes time and dedication, next time you sit around the dinner table with your family.
Thank them for what they did for you since the beginning.

As some might think life is not worthwhile, it's interesting to mention that somebody went through hrs worth of pain just to bring another to life.

Therefore your point is nullified and the same can not be applied to children.

I don't think horaciosi meant anything bad about having kids. The joke is quite obvious. When your a kid you can only see the fun in things, but when it comes to growing up and actually doing the things you dreamt as a kid, it can be exhausting. It doesn't mean you wish it never happened. Like this comic, Zombiesmile wanted to be a comic artist as a kid because she thinks drawing comics is fun, and she obviously enjoys it, but it can be exhausting. The same could be said about having kids :P I found horaciosi's comment quite funny because it's true.

I love draw but I never dream to become mangaka/comic artist. My drawing style and my story are not almost people's tastes, sometimes I feel lonely because my comics are not welcome by readers. You are an admirable person, you dare to pursue your childhood dream and turn it into reality. 

Comic artist is a difficult way to go, I know, but please keep moving forward and never back down. Hug
