Here's the kicker on some of these Kickstarter campaigns.

The drawing and art leaves a lot to be desired yet these online comic creators still develop loyal followings that fund their projects and give them creative autonomy and greatly enhance the quality of their lives.

Take a look at Schlock Mercenary and you'll see what I'm talking about it terms of draftsmanship and design...

Even if you don't work in a studio or never worked in a studio you can be successful as an artist and a content creator!
