I'm 22, wanting to be an artist but to be frank and scared, not making much work. I feel like it's almost too late. What were you doing at 22?
too late? You’re about to throw in the towel at 22?
what you should be doing is drawing every day, working on your craft every day, trying to figure out who you are as a person and as an artist, you should choose your goal and focus on it like a laser. Learn from your mistakes and be thrilled you got them out of your system while you were still relatively young.
there is no age limit on any of this stuff
ultimate spider-man number one came out when I was almost 30 and I had already made 10 years of crime graphic novels and thousands of illustrations before that that no one will ever see. I had dozens of false career starts in between.
it takes years of practice, years of rejection, years of false starts that end up teaching you who you are. this goes for everyone.
the only thing you do by giving up at 22 is making it that much easier for the person next to you to live your dream.
at 22 I was working on a graphic novel called fire. I figured out a lot of stuff putting those pages together. nobody bought it initially but in the process of making it I met everyone who became my best friends today, I met 19-year-old David Mack at a convention and he took my pen away while I was drawing and drew a line on my pencils that showed me a better line for my style. it changed my life.
twenty something years later, universal recently optioned fire to make a movie out of it for Zach Efron and the screenplay is being worked on right now. marvel just released a hardcover of it
