I wish I could give you some insightful advice, but, shit, I struggle with the same questions myself. It is good to see you trying to work it out in this format, though.

I'm not as close to wits end as today's strip might suggest. I'm just trying to chronicle the internal dialog I go through during my creative process. I must admit that I had been considering taking a hiatus from " Natty Dread..." but thanks to the positive feedback I've received from artists such as yourself and an increasing number of viewers over at my Web comics Nation page I have decided to continue doing what I'm doing for at least awhile yet.

You know, I've asked myself the same question (over Leave It To Jesus) at least once a month.

Yeah, I think every artist from Vincent Van Gogh to Chris Ware has thought the same thing at one time or another and that is what I am attempting to depict here. Art and Life are totally separate things and sometimes it's hard to reconcile the two.

To be honest, I do not care what you draw. Just draw something everyday. Keep drawing comics and stay in practice. That's all that matters. It is just cool that you post these.

That's a deal, my friend. Lately, I have been trying to continue one train of thought through out a series of comics as a lot of daily newspaper strips do. I sometimes draw a few days worth of "Natty Dread..." in one sitting and then ink a "new" strip the night before it's "due". That is why this week I seem to constantly be debating my purpose for drawing the daily journal as I was considering doing something else after #100. However, I've already decided to continue to keep doing "... The Bear" for the foreseeable future at least.
