    Be Gentle with Me... I'm New At This...

    My name is Curtis, and I've been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil. Recently, I started selling some of my art online, and created a couple of ranges of greeting cards that I sell through my website and my Etsy. I haven't drawn comics since I was a nipper, but I'm looking to do...

    While there's plenty of us already in the mix, we can sometimes forget that there are so many people just starting out doing their own Webcomics.
