I applied to this Creators For Creators grant 10 months ago with the initial outlines and sample pages from Jack Astro. Coincidentally on the very morning that I was launching the comic online I got the email saying I was unsuccessful in my grant application. It feels good knowing that rather than wait for someone to give me the money/permission to make it, I just got on and did it anyway!

I’ve now scripted out the entire story and have about 70 finished pages so at least when I apply next year I can say “hey, here’s the finished book that I submitted to the grant last year.”

The winner of the grant has a cool art style and will be interesting to see how her project comes along.
