Illustrator Dave Roman (that's him on the left, in his room, on his bed, drawing comics, with the inspirational images of Batman, Garfield, Calvin & Hobbes and a Bloom County Anxiety Closet in the background) offers a mountain of good, solid advice about becoming a person who draws professionally.
There's a lot of good stuff here. I'm still reading it -- and will have to reread it to digest everything. I was nodding my head in agreement a couple of times, particularly the "learn PhotoShop" and "get a business card" tips Dave passed along.
Thanks for spending the time to do this, Dave!
