    • Yeah, it was a fun one and I’m so super-ticked off that I clicked the wrong link in Google Hangouts. But, alas, it’s lost.

  1. Good luck with all your goals for the year! I can relate to so many of them, especially finding a balance. I am trying to balance kids and a comic and multiple art projects, and so many things (like exercise) have gotten lost in the shuffle.

    Listening to you talk about the “marathon” reminded me of something I heard recently about the permanency of the internet. I think as comic creators we stress about what is current – staying on track with the next page or update – but we’re in a totally different type of market than our print comic predecessors, and the body of work we are creating will be there forever to be discovered at any point in the future by anyone it connects with. Maybe not particularly helpful if you’re trying to make a living, but I found it encouraging.

    I appreciate you all being so willing to share your ups and downs. And congratulations to Robin – I’ve had a small business and breaking even is no small accomplishment. (I had not visited Moko previously – I’m very excited to find a whole new selection of podcasts to queue up!)

    Now that you’re using hangouts – can we look forward to a video broadcast – live Q&A maybe? =)

    • Thanks very much, Jill! And I also think a lot about internet permanency. We are all trying so hard to jump onto the Next Big Thing — the social media network, the app, the product — that will finally “make it” for us. Yet the reality is that we, as a people, have not changed how we behave much in regard to consuming content for hundreds of years. That which endures is a mixture more of the communities you connect with and the quality of the work itself. In the end, I think much of the rest is noise.

      • In the podcast I started to mention your comic and brain-farted on its title, thus why Kurt mentioned it in the comments. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • I just finished this episode earlier and it all came together in my head. Thanks!
          I hope the weather there improves! Sending my best wishes from the tropical island I’m on.
          Thanks for the quick kind word and the clarification from Kurt! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I really enjoy keeping the podcasts to 60 minutes. I have a 35 minute drive each way to work, so it makes it really nice to listen to it all in one day.

    Keep up the great work
