Burnout

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, March 16, 2018



I want to take a quick break for a second to talk about something creators go through but often don’t talk about. It is hard to see it coming and even harder still to lift yourself out of once you are there. This post is about addressing creative burnout ...

Nothing Under the Sun

Banes at 12:00AM, Feb. 22, 2018



A friend of mine, many years ago, showed me a cartoon that was fascinating, funny, and horrifying. In my memory, it was the first anime I'd ever seen. I'd forgotten most of it over the years, and would try to find it once every so often, without knowing ...

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Feb. 2, 2018



So here we are.

The final part.

The end of the journey.

Settle in kids because this is looooong. I’m going to get a bit real and it may be confronting for some people so I just want to warn you.

I was in my final year of university ...

Fandom

Banes at 12:00AM, Jan. 25, 2018



In a world of adapted comic book characters and stories, reborn old franchises, and endless brand-excavation of old TV shows, toys, and video games, our entertainment culture is something different than we've previously seen.

“I.P.'s” are dug up repurposed endlessly, in order to try and make a ...

My Favorite Print Comic: Get Fuzzy

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Jan. 8, 2018



There was a time when getting the local paper delivered to my door each day did not seem like a frivolous luxury. In fact, having a newspaper subscription seemed as common as watering the lawn.

I have fond memories of picking up the newspaper and turning to the Business section ...

A Day Without Webcomic Host Sites

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Dec. 18, 2017



(The idea of this post piggybacks on Tantz's article on Net Neutrality, which was inspired by Jillyfoo's forum thread on the same topic. Jillyfoo coined the phrase “planting the worry seeds” in the forum post in order to consider the worst possible outcome.)

I would go outside and ...

On The Still-Ongoing Net Neutrality Issue

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Dec. 16, 2017



A thread in the forum by JillyFoo on Net Neutrality has inspired this newspost.

I did some cursory research on it on the issue of how repealing it might affect artists- indie artists, like most of us are as webcomic creators and DD contributors.
According to Rolling Stone repealing it ...

Knowing what you Write

Banes at 12:00AM, Dec. 7, 2017

Last week we talked about “writing what you know” … but how about ‘knowing what you write’? I knew I wanted to do this one as soon as I posted the previous article…just for the title.

In a TV show, series of books, movie, printed comic series, or newspaper strip ...

Does anyone remember the early days of the Internet in the mid-nineties, where a majority of online interactions took place on and Internet Relay Chat (IRC)? I was only ten years old when I was first connected, and it did not take me long to learn that saying 10/f ...

Cheating

Banes at 12:00AM, Nov. 2, 2017

Cheat, cheat, no reason to play fair…(the Clash)

Years ago, when I did my first animation and posted it online, looking for attention like always, there was one comment that made me defensive, annoyed, and eventually, thoughtful.

I had no idea about animation timing or any of the little ...
