This is brief thought I wanted to add for the pussies that seem to have a problem with what Neil Gaiman wrote.

Here is the article - hjournal.neilgaiman.com/2009/05…

Having no intention finishing something is far different from being late - please make no mistake. I can tell you that it's zero fun to work 65 hour weeks to have some turd yelling at you for being a week late (Something that people who don't work for a living doing anything they are passionate about will never understand). Puts me in a rough mental state when humans are up my ass. This situation can create a terrible feedback loop for me - one of the reasons I try to stay away from interviews and forums.

I tell stories that I want to last, not ones that are "on time". Artwork for this takes time. If you desire a good story, you have to wait. If you want mental fast-food, you have thousands of titles to choose from a month. Randomly walk down the isle of most American comic book shops with your eyes closed, randomly reach your muscle-less arm out, grab a book and chances are it's a pile of shit. The American comic book industry has always leaned full steam this direction. I find that disgusting, and I want no part of it. If you wish your books to come out like clockwork, read Batman. Multiple shitty, thread-bare-no-character-arc stories for you every week there, humans.

Cookie-cutter artwork and writing can be done monthly. Good stories are a bit tougher to fit in that time frame.

Many people will disagree with Neil's points by "agreeing" and then going on to nuance their opinion so they can bash creators again. There are many reasons for this, and that is another conversation entirely, but it's hypocrisy none the less. If you are going to critique a creator in comic books, bash them for reasons that deserve bashing - a good chunk of the trash you humans celebrate are in need of it. This industry is chock full of very unethical people, they employ egos that fucking Elvis would be ashamed of, they lie-steal-cheat, etc. Bash them for that, not trying their best to deliver a good piece of artwork.

I am a storyteller and an artist . I try to bring something special to every project I do, and I work obsessively on achieving that. I don't owe you a fucking thing. And if you feel differently, suck a dick.

Hello Mr.Howard! How are you?
I'm penciling pages for my next project and you come to my mind because I think I have definitely contracted horror vacui from you :)

Yes I definitely owe you for that illness :)
Seems like things are moving and my next project is going to be, in a way, quite huge, despite it being short.
And I'll try my best. Especially now that I'm teaming up with a great colorist and overall artist such as :iconeeren:, whose gallery I'd like to recommend that you check out by the way.

I hope we'll have a chance to meet one day when I come to some event in the US, and that you'll let me buy you a beer :)
