First Zen Pencils book collection out this November. Stay tuned for more details :)
Are you making them based on something that happen on you that day?
Not really, mostly they just come from my imagination. Although sometimes my life creeps into the comics. The Ira Glass, Bill Watterson and Jim Henson comics are based on my life.
Time to find some new people :) good luck
There’s no secret answer to ‘Where do you get your ideas from?’ - the more you show up to work, the easier the ideas come. The worst thing to do is STOP creating because you don’t feel like you can think of anything original. Keep working, keep grinding - sometimes it’s a grind for me, but the more you force yourself to keep trying, stuff happens. So keep going, don’t stop! Read my ‘Advice for beginners’ comic - that directly addresses your problem - good luck!
How does an artist’s style come about? You usually throw in a childhood of influences (in my case: Bill Watterson, Jeff Smith, Looney Tunes, early days of Image comics, Tintin) into a blender, copy their style because you don’t know any better and after years of practicing and refining, a unique and personal style is created. You basically just draw and draw and draw and over time you begin to develop your own voice.
