Work the Core

I've never hired interns myself, but I've been part of the interviewing process weirdly enough. And I have a handful of cartooning friends who have interns. I should probably look into that...

BODIE

I like this idea! So how do we start?


ALLY

We probably just post a listing on the career center sites of all the colleges in the area and see what happens.

====


KANE

Sounds simple enough. Who are we looking for?


ALLY

Probably a marketing intern of some kind. Hrmm? lemme see if I can register us on?

====


ALLY

Ah, yeah, here we go. Found a site that will blast our listing to all the career center sites at GW, the UMD schools, and Georgetown. I think we?re probably looking for someone in marketing or sales. Or probably both.

====


ALLY

Okay, we got a few questions we need to answer. Paid or unpaid?


KANE

Paid. Most definitely. You do work for us, you deserve compensation. Even if we get big enough where an exposure gig with us is worth it, we pay our peeps.

====


BODIE

Agreed. As much as we can afford. What else?


ALLY

Hrm? description of duties. That?s pretty straight forward.

====


KANE

Yeah, Make this money, take this money, ain't no way you can take this from me, ain't shit funny, shake it honey, take it money. Now let's get it!


ALLY

I think I remember enough biz speak to translate that into eager intern speak. Alright, there?s some stuff in the company description. What are our core values?

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!

I've spent a month with the iPad Pro and have some thoughts on what types of creators will find this to be a useful tool. This would have been a very different review without the reveal of iPadOS this past week.

Please take my thoughts with many, many, MANY grains of sand. I don't have other devices to compare the Pro to so it's not a very thorough review in my mind. But I try to answer the question, "What type of creator is the iPad Pro for?"
