Sometimes my life feels like a sitcom or a really cliche romantic comedy.
Today was one of those days.
For those that know me personally, if you ever find yourself wondering “Has Jesse thought this through? Does he realize how dangerous/risky/uncertain it is?” I just want to very clearly state that the answer is always “Yes.”
I have thought through every terrible thing that might happen, including at least a dozen you probably couldn’t have without first having read the wikipedia entry for unusual deaths (which I’ve read at least twice).
The question for me isn’t whether there’s risk, it’s whether the rewards are worth it. If my choices are to risk everything or stand still, standing still feels like death to me these days so I’m going to go for it.
Today was a day I will never forget. I started dreaming of being the guy who drew the comics I read when I was four or five years old. That makes more than thirty years of working my way up to this.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. Every word of encouragement, every honest critique, every piece of recommended reading, and every kind moment has led me to finally putting one of these projects of mine out into the world.
