There's cause for celebration again, as I had a very encouraging e-mail from Paul Gravett on Sunday. For those of you who haven't heard of him, Paul is a tireless supporter of the comics medium, through his own works, journalism and the organisation of the Comica festival.
Pat Mills had suggested (at the signing) that I contact Paul and I'm chuffed I did because this is what he had to say:
...I've taken a look at your site and blog - Pat's got a good eye, and he's right, you're talented and just need that good story to work on.I know it's not an offer of work. But I do feel that I am close to making that leap from amateur to professional paid work. With the pot emptying faster that I can fill it, that would be no bad thing.
You're on my radar now...
