I'm in process of drawing a comic to send off to a syndicate, but it's going really slow. I have decided to go the traditional rout with tracing paper, 0.5 mechanical pencil, markers, and mix media paper. So far I have roughly 11 out of 20 comic strips, either finished of ready to be scanned and tweaked in Photoshop and Indesign.
I find that games on facebook and tv on hulu have been dragging me down. Enjoying the finished product of others keeps me from finishing mine.
The other reason it's slow going is that my parents don't seem to have much faith in syndication; they're having me do other work around the house until I can find a real job. Syndication is on the same level of competition as graphic design, might as well wear an eye patch and say "arrr," but if I can pull this off I'll be in newspapers; it's like Jo, Joe, and Joey and Media Circus were the training and now is the time to do this; but it may take 'til October.
