That is all.
I've had a surprising amount of emails/notes about how to break in. I have no specific answer other than keep drawing and posting and creating. But here are some other random thoughts.

First, you don't actually 'break' in. You creep in. It's like you knocked on a door and they opened it, just a little, and you can see all the cool stuff inside but you're not getting in yet.

The hardest part isn't you first job. It's your second and third and fourth. The hardest thing in comics is getting MORE work, not your first thing. In the grand scheme of things your first job (creeping in) is piss easy. Cultivating a career is difficult. A lot of it has to do with timing and a strong work ethic. Not being a dick is also a big part of it.

I've been working  steady for 5 years professionally (hired by major companies) but i still don't really feel secure in my career.

I'm not a recognized name or a big player yet i make a living doing this. So it is possible for this to sustain you.

That is all.

Loving your style. I'm no huge fan of the typical modern clean lines approach to comic art and your artwork is quite opposite, better in my opinion full of style, energy and life. You put me in mind of a Spanish artist call Jesus Redondo and the late great Jorge Zaffion. I'm gonna look about for some published work of yours and suggestions where to begin?
