2014 in Review: Myles Loughran

What have been your personal cartooning/comics highlights of 2014?

Honestly this year has not been great for me comics wise with very few highlights. As I decided this year to kill off my series, Pushing Pencils, as I grew tired of waiting on things to happen to draw about. I spent most of the year trying to decide what I wanted to work on and have reached the light at the end of tunnel.  The main thing for me is that this has been refining and being honest with myself about what my weak points are and getting rid of them.

What are some of the comics you've enjoyed in 2014?

For me the best comic of the year was Megahex by Simon Hanselmann, I must have read it 5 times now, fuck me that dude has talent (Simon if you are ever looking for an apprentice give me a shout, HINT HINT).  Also I really enjoyed Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life by Ulli Lust, as a journal comic artist it really hit home, It's a fine piece of work. Everyone should read it.

What is something non-comics that you have enjoyed in 2014?  

... Em... Oh wait...no... I HAVE IT! I bought the new 3ds XL this year. Recently I have become a games junkie, you will catch me wandering around Cash Convertors with the rest of junkies (looking for games through not smack).

What are you looking forward to in 2015?

I am looking forward to launching my new comic and working my ass to get people to read it and growing from there. I am going to call in every favour, suck every dick but by the end of year I should have a reader or two.
