HA! Me again!
Okay, the thing I forgot to talk about is your art. It's very good for your age and lightyears ahead of what I was doing when I started. And I'm assuming you already have a computer, a tablet or cintiq, photoshop, and the internet, right? So if I could do it starting with no equipment, money, connections, exposure, or skill, you can do it a million times easier and faster.
But, go to school if that's right for you.
Someone get the long stage hook thing. Get me outta here!
