Wow I'm soooooooooooooo behind, there's so much art to do.... @_@;;

I really can't promise anything on VDomL at the moment, but I am posting silly nonsense every weekday over on the Facebook page. I'll probably dual post it to my Tumblr as well soon.

Author Notes:

To be honest, I don't believe in time. Time is merely a measurement that man has created so that they know how much 'time' they have left on this planet. Just like money, it measures worth. I hate and don't believe in either but they're necessary evils to live in this world.

Anyways, this is for all my artist friends also. I should probably like, mark all the rants together and then call em Es's rants.

This is also based off my/Es's rant on this post on her Tumblr. The measured time changes often so I'm being a little more strict here in the comic whereas on my rant it was more forgiving.

"I don't HAVE the time. I MAKE the time." Was my personal motto back in high school.

Funny you should bring that up. My fam and I were just having a deep conversation about time/money and their relation/meaning.

But ya. I'd like your comics/stories so of course I'd like them to continue. As always your call though. What's the issue anyhow?

Time and money are manmade things. I'm not a very religious person and you know that, but Man created time and money. Time for measuring how long things take. Money measures worth/importance. I care for neither but I acknowledge both are needed in the living world as man has set it up this way.

As for the issue, I'll give you the general idea of how things are going down: I still have no job and all the art I am doing is for free, despite it being work experience/trying to establish a name for myself. I don't want to say that being an artist is different from any other job out there, but a lot of the time it helps if you gather up a fanbase, etc. Which is what I've been trying to make up for the lost time I never posted on dA or anywhere online.

I hit rock bottom and started believing that no one cares about my art except me, but I know my friends do and I do have se fans out there, but for some people, this isn't enough. Because time and money are more important.

Indeed. My thoughts were more focused on the relation between time & money and their exchange. I was theorizing that money was, at it's core, simply a physical exchange of time. In other words, that trading time is the true purpose of money since time (unlike money) is 100% finite and can not it's self be traded. ...But ya, what's way off topic. >.>

I don't know what to say about your web comic. Being an artist is hard no doubt and as much as I'd like you to succeed- No, as much as I think you SHOULD succeed with how much you put in to it and because you make good art... Who knows? If I could call someone and get you a job I would. XD

Regardless, if you quit now you know the answer. I just hope you don't torture yourself in trying. :/

Pretty much that's how they relate. Not too off topic, I do still enjoy talking philosophically now and again.

Thanks for the support.

You're a little late to the party to tell me not to torture myself in trying to continue.

Is it better to have dreams and to struggle or to have no dreams and be well off in the world... that is the question...

I once heard someone say "Retirement is when you get to quit doing what you NEED to do to survive and start doing what you always WANTED to do from the get go." So ya, maybe it's not a Zero-sum game. Maybe art is out of your reach right now, but in the future who knows. As you once said, art is part of you. I don't believe for a second that just because you get a normal job you'll stop drawing: it's your passion!! It just means it won't be your bread winner right off and you can't work on it full time at this point in your life. Maybe it'll be your retirement. Who knows.

I don't know how true that is for the art field... To be honest, usually artists, or at least the dedicated ones, do it for a living. If they're not, they take on something close (John Lasseter worked in DisneyLand before he got picked up by them), before they make their 'big break'. Art is closer to the acting industry in my honest opinion. And then when an artist retires, they still keep going, whether drawing or teaching the next generation.

To be honest, I can't see myself working at some random non-art related job until I'm 60+, retiring, and then finally making a big break in art. What am I living for then? It's almost like the appeal of Lambourghini and Ferrari cars. Sure they look hot and amazing, but it's likely you won't have enough money to afford one until you're 50+ if you're lucky.... and even if you buy it at that age, the time you really wanted it was when you were 20... thus life wasted.
