My new Bandit Friends

I went to a breakout session put on by Mike Kunkel of The Astonish Factory and Shannon Eric Denton of Komikweks. One of the things that really stuck with me was that Shannon was saying, “Call it what ever you want, being laid off, fired, let go. The long and short of it is that in this industry we are always moving on to our next job. So be prepared by networking.” Heh, I was just “let go”, nice to know that it’s not a big deal. The other thing that he said was that he, “… had heard of Mike Kunkel before and knew that he had talent, but it wasn’t until Mike had done his own book, Hero Bear, that he really started to show up on Shannon’s radar.”

The key is doing it. I’ve got lots of ideas, but if I don’t do anything with them it’s wasted. So, now I’m networking and trying to get more projects under my belt. Thanks for the pep talk guys!
