it's inevitable when the creator of that webcomic is using it as an excuse to not produce content. i'm not reading everything he's taking the time to write here instead of actually producing his webcomic, but the gist i'm getting is>it's not my fault that i take a year to update, because wow guys doesn't the internet just suck now, look at that not me>i don't want to update more often anyway because i'm doing it for me, not you
i hate when people make this claim. if you are releasing art, you are almost always doing so with an audience in mind. but definitely, if you develop an audience and then abandon them, and tell them "this isn't for you anyway so fuck off," they can smell the lie. the sincerity is lost.
meanwhile i'm tryna make shit that is directly counteracting the direction the internet is going. fuck the algorithms. sincerity will be noticed. quality will rise to the top. if you build it well and don't expect compensation, people will come.
that's what i think of when i say "i'm doing this for me." not an excuse to hide all the real reasons i'm not doing what i told myself i would do, but a reason to create content despite the size of my audience. to keep me honest and sane. and sure enough motherfucker i have an audience now. and even as they come and go, which they will, i will always have my fucking integrity, because i'm not lying to myself the way kaz is.
i guess i'm angry now because wasted potential pisses me the fuck off. this could have been great. it doesn't have to be this way.
