Yeah, it's a choice I made knowing that some people won't like it.
The problem is that making webcomics is my full time job.
I have a long form comic published by a french pubilisher and the deadlines are tought.
I need social media to promote it.
With the few time that I have left from drawing my main comic, I had to make a choice: keeping on doing the old Millennials where I focused more on political issue or more intellectualized concepts, or simplify my life and make more accessible content and grow my social media while doing it.
I have chosen the latter.
But, as I said, at the beginning I failed.
My first attempts at making relatable content were awful. I didn't care for it, and people felt it.
It really took me a while to find a voice, to be unique and to find that part of me that I really wanted to share. And people responded well.
I thought that making good relatable content was easy, but it's not. AT ALL.
You have to be open about yourself, you have to give something of you, you have to be ready to accept critiques about yourself (because yeah, you're not talking about an abstract person, you're talking about yourself) and not everyone is ready or willing to do that. Or good at it if I'm allowed to say so.
So in the end I've learned something new and I'm glad
I have a newly found respect for people who make high quality relatable content and everything that was there before didn't change. It just added up.
Finally, I don't blame you for not liking the new content. It's not Millennials, it's more 'me'. That's why it also got more cynic. I am a cynical person.
Thank you for liking my old comics, I think it's great sometimes I felt I was the only one having that type of humor and the fact that people like you could connect with that as well was SO important for me to build the confidence to do a long form comics afterwards
Maybe one day have a look at the latest things I've done: sometimes I still find a way to slip some old Millennials frenzy into my new comics
