Don't go to art school
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.

I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way

Offset printing for comic artists
Comic authors today benefit from increased choice in terms of how to
publish. Digital publishing, aka the way of webcomics, are the obvious
nearly-universal choice for both those who wish to print at some point
an those who don't intend to. Print-on-demand (PoD) similarly makes it
possible for everyone to make their work available as a book; despite
its many limitations it's better than no possibility. Digital printing
and various means offered by copy centers also present opportunities for
enterprising artists to print small runs of books at a relatively
modest cost, with more control over the final product than PoD allows.
But the most exciting development, as far as I'm concerned, is that
today sites like Kickstarter give everyone a chance to access good old
offset printing, which this post is dedicated to. Here I list a number
of things to know, do and avoid in order to make the most out of offset
printing, based on my training and personal experience printing comics
and other book
