GLITTERshy #6, March 2003
First published in Dec, '98. 6 Issues, on-going
I put out GLITTERshy as a response to fill requests for personal artwork ("Satisfy 'em all at once, and make 'em cover some of the costs!" so someone told me.) that I just couldn't get through. It was also incredibly empowering to be responsible for a publication in it's totality from start to finish, never mind the quality or quantity. I can see that feeling is something that can get a lot of self-publishers hooked.
As the issues progressed, I started to put more effort into the production, working up to colour covers and computer-enhanced artwork. The illustrated stories that made up a big portion of the first two issues are gone, as are the shorter strips and one-pagers and pinups. Eventually, I hope that GLITTERshy will feature full-length stories, or a number of continuing storylines, possibly (even hopefully!) written by someone with a greater knack for story writing than I have.
It would be great to do GLITTERshy for a living, but realistically I'm only doing and treating it as an obsessive hobby (although the hours I work on it are like a part time job, sometimes...)
