Big News #2 – I quit my job. published on 53 Comments on Big News #2 – I quit my job.

Some of the ways you can support me during this time are as follows:

Patreon.com – For as little as a dollar a month you can help me get this publishing thing going. I also show my patrons lots of extras that I don’t show here.

My Mailing List: HERE – My mailing list is the first group I contact when I release a new product, Kickstarter or have new news to share. I will be announcing some new things you can purchase this year like a download of my personal textures for coloring, my personal comic fonts, video tutorials and sketchbooks. This also gives me an idea of how many people are interested in my stuff.

JoinTheBibleProject.com – Donate to this nonprofit and you will be helping me as well because these guys hired me to work on their videos. This is the freelance job that I was talking about. They are all donation funded. 🙂

Amazon.com – You can buy my books on Amazon too!

CTC.storenvy.com – This is my online store where I will be selling signed books, original art and other Coffee Table Comics stuff.

Good luck with this next chapter of your life. I completely understand about the golden handcuffs and am looking to make my own transition in about 3 years. You have an amazing talent and I’m sure you can make it work.

Good luck. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you and your projects. You know I’ll always be there to support you as best I can.

Holy moly! I’m going to miss seeing you around California shows, but I understand your direction here. I quit a lucrative engineering job to pursue art full time nearly three years ago. It’s taken me a while to start getting more comics work but I finally think it’s happening.

Through a series of personal circumstances, I’ve ended up with my family too in Florida. The cost of living here is admittedly cheaper and I’m starting to ponder the possibilities of doing freelance work here while traveling back to CA for short spells to keep my professional contacts alive. This is the road less traveled, but it feels possible.

I wish you the best of luck in your journey. I’m on a similar path, so know you’re not alone in this.

Jules! I’ll still be going to the California shows. I have WonderCon and CTNX booked for 2015. I’ll also be at ECCC and PHX. But now I can try to hit other shows too like Salt Lake City Comicon and Denver maybe. I’m definitely planning on trying to do more shows now that I have the schedule opened up more.

I’ve been running into so many people who are quitting jobs or making big changes in life lately. It’s amazing what a little stagnation can do to motivate us. 🙂

I’m sure I’ll see you around. Talk soon!

Happy New Year Jason! With your talent for illustration and story telling, i very much look forward to supporting your future projects! It is a brave step you took… those golden handcuffs are quite difficult to shrug off indeed…. good luck, and the next chapters in your life and work are looked forward to with great anticipation.

That was an amazing read and also meant a lot to me. I really wish you all the best always and wish tour courage to do what you really want. It’s inspiring.

All my love Brubaker family 🙂

Thanks Dheyrdre! That means a lot to me. I really appreciate your continued support over the years. It’s people like you who have inspired me and given me the confidence to move forward with this kind of stuff. Send me an email when I get the Sithrah books and I’ll send you one. 🙂

All the best to you and your family in 2015. I’m sure you will keep creating awesome material. The “stress” of success in what society considers “making it to the top” doesn’t always bring happiness and fulfillment. I admire your faith and commitment. You will be rewarded!

Congratulations man !
I’m sure you haven’t taken that decision lightly, so if you’re well prepared the greater the chances of success (I may say optimistic autosuggestion). But I say congrats because I know the amount of courage it takes to make such decision (no mater the cost). In any case, you’re a hero 🙂

LOL, the local currency you “used” just remind me the animated film Wolf Children I saw on Christmas http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_Children

I can say from past experience teleworking from Northern Idaho, that the scenery at least is hard to beat! I’ve considered the perks of teleworking from somewhere beautiful where the cost of living is low.

I hope you see God’s hands all over the place as you step out in faith!

I already sent you a message from the contact page on reMind. But I thought I could openly share my hopes and prayers for you and yours. I wish you all the best. I’ve tried to follow His direction for the last decade and it always stretches me as much as blesses me.

If you are ever near Idaho Falls or Rexburg, drop me a line. The only Brubakers I know are good folks, so I’m sure your family is welcome at our home too.

What do you think?
