ANSWERS for Jason ep1
@by_JasonRyan is an instagram follower and member of the JPrimecast Community. He's got a lot of questions and I think that's awesome. But rather than giving him answers through DM or email, I thought it'd be a good idea to make some content out of them. So here you go, the first episode of "Answers for Jason"! This will be followed up by other creative people I reached out to who provided answers to the same questions.

Stop Waiting for the Right Time / ANSWERS IN 2min
Spoiler alert - There's never going to be a right time. Work on your project and attract followers that are into your project. I think it's fine to do fan art, but just realize the people that follow you because you draw Hulk well, might not be into your creator owned project. I do a mix of both, where I show my entire comic creation process as well as mix in fan art.
