• The fan picture that picked me back up

    by  • March 1, 2013 • Art, Blog, News

    If we get real for a moment here, most of us small press guys, whether published by 215 Ink, Markosia or even Image, can hardly have said to have ‘made it’.
    Myself, along with friends like Magnus Aspli, Shawn Aldridge and Fabian Rangel Jr have expressed their lower moments on Facebook and elsewhere on the web.

    But inevitably, its when you are just about out of steam, out of money and out of luck that something happens to pick you up again.
    This picture from a fan in Greece is my moment… and I post it here in the interest of sharing, just as you have.
    I believe, now more than ever that this outpouring and encouragement from fans is half the point to what we do.

    Collected edition up for Pre-Order now (JUN121309)!!! Issue 1 free on Graphic.ly via 215 ink! http://www.215ink.com/ http://www.kuzimu.co.uk.gridhosted.co.uk/ http://www.graphic.ly/ 'Kuzimu' on Myspace and Twitter! I started writing and creating this world at the age of 15 and have been adding little bits to it ever since! In late '06/early '07 I finally got the energy together to start writing and drawing it seriously as a comic book. Needless to say, the costs of printing it were astronomical, so I decided to publish it myself via my site, then via 215 ink and the online digital comic store at http://graphic.ly/ and now pre-order for print! So now it's down to you- my aim was to create a whole new world, so if you want to see more please buy it. The more you help by getting the latest issue and telling your friends, the more I can put back into continuing to create this unique work! That said, I have just finished part 1 of 'Ci-wa' (face), the next chapter following both parts of 'Yowa' (fear), 'Syoma' (kindness) and 'Lu-se' (hope), so you won't have to wait long for the exciting chapter in this (hopefully) epic tale! In the mean time, you can come and talk to me on Facebook/Twitter/Google+, email me, or better yet visit the site, your local comic store (pre-order only) or graphic.ly and let the comic take you into my world! - Brett Uren
