welcome to…

A few issues back I wrote here about how I sometimes struggle with having far too many negative thoughts on how things might go wrong. Since then I’ve received many emails from readers with similar stories and some from others offering support. Many thanks to those who took the time to get in touch. Because of the response I received I decided to take a deeper look at how artists can be susceptible to doubts about their craft and the steps that can be taken to combat it. It’s equally as surprising as it is inevitable that so many highly regarded professional artists suffer from crippling self-doubt. Turn to page 18 for the story. If you suffer from negative feelings about yourself, take a moment to read the article and realise…

how artists can beat back negative thoughts

Self-doubt can strike anyone in any industry, but creatives in particular are closely associated with images of internal conflict. Is there truth behind the stereotype of the tortured artist finally emerging from their studio clutching a work of brilliance, and if so, where does it come from? Most importantly of all, how can artists deal with self-doubt? Like all stereotypes, the idea of the troubled artist is neither nuanced nor useful. However, it does tap into a struggle that artists at every stage of their career appear to have to deal with: talent alone won’t help you outrun confidence issues. “Once I reached a point where I was making a living with my artwork and went full time, the doubts began to set in,” says artist and illustrator Kelly McKernan, whose “fake…

What are the warning signs to look out for when negative thoughts start to take over? I think we each have our own warning signs that are based on the whole of our life experience.

Downtime can be a tremendous help to regroup and gain momentum again. Friends – good people to surround ourselves with, those people who listen, communicate, and who will challenge us in ways that will help us grow, who will be…

halo jones shines again

The Ballad of Halo Jones is regarded as one of the high points in the long and varied history of British comic 2000 AD. It was written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Ian Gibson, and told the tale of an ordinary female in the far future. Originally published in 1984, the comic has been restored by publisher Rebellion in a new three-part collection that’s been colourised by Barbara Nosenzo. “I tried to respect the line art, which wasn’t always simple because the comic wasn’t developed for colour” “I felt a huge responsibility working on this project because it’s a milestone of science fiction and comics in general,” explains Barbara, who reveals that she read the story for the first time after being assigned to the project. “I tried to be respectful of…
