Buddha’s big question was , “What makes me happy without hurting anyone else?” Anyone includes everything from mosquitos to the myriad demons and demonesses swiped from other cultures that practice was going on in. His solution, finding the pleasure in the breath so you can let go of desires eating away at you.
How does this apply to comics? That’s what I’m working on. I tried this approach to driving yesterday. Going north my brain started chewing on whatever I was mad at when I left. The right turn went by without really checking at the other corners by rolling thru the stop sign. Not a big deal as the street is usually pretty empty. But not really safe and no solving the problem. So I set my intention on driving. Just checking my hands, the street, scanning the space as what is important. The next left turn was done with calm and checking but up the street suddenly the issue was global climate change in my head and I barely reached the end of the block.
The trip was a constant lose attention, reset my intention on driving, lose and reset and an endless process. Driving while more complicated then breathing is still not comics. the challenge is to bring each step of comics into existence and then set the attention on that, not the whole process of doing comics.
