I worked on I Was Kidnapped By Lesbian Pirates From Outer Space!!! for 7 years, and now it’s done. And with the end of such a thing, there comes the introspection, the retrospection, and all other kinds of ‘spections. In this case, taking a look back to see just how far the art advanced in that time. I was so proud of the first page when I made it, and while I’m not ashamed of it now, I’ve certainly come a long long long way! So even if your art is shaky now, or at least not looking how you pictured it in your head, remember that with practice, you get better every day. Realize artistic talent is a learned skill that gets better with time. And then USE EVERY FIBER OF WILLPOWER TO NOT GO BACK AND REDRAW THE WHOLE FIRST HALF OF THE STORY!!!

If you ever want to feel better about your art, take something you did five years ago and redraw it. I can’t believe how stiff and awkward the anatomy was! It was so lifeless compared to the new art. Also, I really do draw everyone curvier now, which I really like. I think what I’m doing now is a lot more polished and professional. I can’t wait to see where I am in five more years! Hey, 30-year-old Megan, are you embarrassed by the second image? Also, do we drive a Batmobile yet? I really hope so.
