My two & 7 Days comics

I did two comics for 7 Days, Vermont's Alternative Weekly. They give the opportunity to do comics to selected CCS students. 

This is actually where I figured out how to do these color pencil comics, doing the inks and color on separate layers.

The color on this is washed out but I still like the writing.

I have more of these I want to do. I'm thinking of maybe pitching a collection of these as a book. My class didn't dig them, but a lot of other people, including a lot of non- comic readers, seem to really respond to them. 

But I'm scared, I'm scared of making that leap of going to publishers. I'm afraid they will say no. I'm afraid that all the positive reactions I've gotten to my work is a fluke, that I'll never make it in this business. I'm pretty sure that this isn't true, but who knows?

I just gotta get over it and try it. It seems comics is a waiting game, and as long as I am making consistent work, something will eventually happen.
