Hi there Mildegard and Lavenderbard,
I am one of the few here who's bilingual. I am a Filipino and I just started creating comics last November of 2014 up to this day and I think I am doing good. I already got a few strips up on my site. The only thing I worry is, are there any other people out there who reads my work. Sometimes I think of completely stopping this, to create webcomics because of lack of support or motivation. Btw, I also started creating comics in my native language but decided to create them in English so majority of people around the globe could understand my work.
Like you, Mildegard, the number of webcomic artist's in my country is very limited. There are some, but still not that much people like people in US, Canada, UK or in any other major English speaking countries out there.
I just read your post and I just saw that you posted this message last June 3 of 2014. That's more than a year now. But anyway, I just wanted to chime in my thoughts and to answer your question.
