Im kinda piss off today at the bleeding cool comic site there is an article about the festo comic.
One of the big announcements of the festo comic festival that Senior VP Talent, C.B. Cebulski, will visit Mexico next November in search of local artists for Marvel Comics.
And of course the american fans think that we are stealing their jobs specially because marvel lay off some editors a couple of days ago , That´s stupid among artists countries frontiers should not exist , I enjoy comics from Mexico, Japan, England , EUA. One of my dreams is to draw for the shonen jump and the editor Igashi Sasaki said in twitter that anyone could submit to jump even guys from the other side of the ocean, comics is an international thing.
Like many in my country I read marvel comics and saw the cartoons since I was a kid I dreamed to draw superman or spiderman I really thougth if I drew everyday made a lot of effort and sacrifices , I would have the skills and the chance to draw those guys when I grew up (sadly now I want to draw manga)
, I´ve been going to san diego comicon in the last 3 years trying to get a gig with some sucess and a lot of failures and it really cost me a lot of money each travel, Not everyone can afford that, In sports like soccer, big teams usually hire many talented soccer players around the world to make themselves stronger,and this a big chance for mexican artists…. no artists to archive their dreams
