[To start off with...I am pretty sure comicing is a word...despite what spell check says.]
To be honest that should probably say, 8 months of drawing every day because really, that is the important part. Practicing everyday. I was looking back at the first pages of my comic and they just make me so happy. Is my art perfect, flawless, highly intellectually challenging now? Nope, but it is was better than it was then (the most important bit is that I feel like I am good enough now to show the story I really want to tell).
People always seem to talk about wanting to redo their first comic pages...and I guess if I wanted to publish there might be some logic, but I love those pages. I love see how I've grown. I look at those pages with pride because I was putting myself out there with my art and story in a way I never had before (because I am a coward in my heart).
I can't wait to finish Jac just so that I can go back and watch my art grow and change.
