when you became a professional artist what has been the biggest challenge/surprise that you hadn't considered before become a professional?

Time management. I don't think i truly comprehended the sheer man hours it takes to complete a monthly comic. Before I became a pro I had other jobs so if a page took a week to draw, that's the way it was. However, when you have to crank out 220+ separate illustrations per year and try to maintain some sort of private time and social life/ family life, it can be daunting.

Ask me anything
