Just to make things clear, in case anybody's worried, SJ is not going to going to suddenly be retooled to include humans, start including sex scenes, turn into insult/rant humor, or anything like that. SJ is going to keep evolving, the same way it has been from the start, but one of the most important things to me is that it continues to be something I can enjoy and be proud to have done.
'cos let's face it, if I'm going to do stuff I hate and am ashamed of for money, I could make more money as an editorial cartoonist. :P
When I talk about broadening my horizons, I mean just that -- expanding, not replacing. I expect to go to AC and FC pretty much every year from now on as long as they'll have me. But in addition to those, I'm going to start looking at things like ComicCon, A-Kon, and so forth. I have been very comfortable in the furry pond, but if, as bigtig says, I am a big fish there, then it's time that I start making additional forays into other ponds from time to time, if only to keep the furry pond from being depleted. ;)
