Every now and then I find out that the folks who do some of my favorite comics are doing other things that are pretty cool. The guy who made RPG World now works as an animation director for The Venture Bros. The lady who creates Manly Guys Doing Manly Things works as an animator for Ugly Americans (if I heard right.)

While I don't expect many people are working on such public projects for television and whatnot, I'm still curious what many of the other webcomic people here do to pay the bills.

As for myself I'm unemployed; I donated plasma to earn money. Not much to say there.

Software Engineer, or at least I've convinced enough workplaces that I deserve that title...

Student here. My home university is in Nebraska, but currently on a study abroad. German is my major and my minors are History, French, and Japanese.

I've had jobs for years, but I don't usually like listing those since they have no connections for the careers that I want to have. I've done food service, retail, factory work, army, and have worked as the language lab assistant at my university. I think the most interesting job I've had was working at a porn store for like 2 or 3 months.

Oh dear. Have you been reading "The Trenches?"
I was reminded of this one.

I am a Computer Science graduate. I have been a teacher and researcher for long, now I'm trying my hands as CTO for a small software company. Will let you know if I survive that.

Do I see a trend here?

That a surprising number of webcartoonists are also street magicians? I noticed that, too.


I'm hoping to make it big one day as a street magician so I can give up my mundane life as a webcartoonist.
