I had a remarkably poor experience at SAIC. I'm a cartoonist, and the faculty was openly hostile to comic books as an art form.Two other students in my year dropped out before the completion of the program: A classically trained oil painter from Europe who did figurative and representational work, and a graffiti artist. I would advise anyone who does not have a deep commitment to conceptual wo ...

I used to Livestream pretty regularly. I need to get back to that. Also, I basically already have the overflow from my Kickstarter mentally spent. The plan: - A Poorcraft sequel, about traveling/vacationing/globetrotting cheaply. I'm not writing it, nor am I drawing it. It'll be the first comic I make where I am serving in a purely editorial capacity. - A new webcomic, an sci-fi comedy ad ...

I have many new comics that I've been working on lately! 14 Comic Creators 6/20/12 8:21pm

A couple things. - "Seasons" are for TV. Divisions in literature are more properly called volumes or chapters. - "Anime" is cartoons. "Manga" is, in an English-speaking context, for Japanese or Japanese-visually-inspired comics. The only way the phrase "anime comic maker" could make sense is if you were making a fan comic based on an anime, or a licensed official comic based on an anime ...

Gleaning inspiration for your own comics by exclusively reading other comics is a great way to produce awful crap no one will want to read. I can tell when a comic is inspired only by other comics, because it relies on regurgitated cliches, tropes and plot elements. And It's a turn-off. I agree that tumblr is a great place to find inspiration. Some of my favorite tumblrs for doing just ...

For everyone else, Deb Aoki of About.com's been running a five-part series on Making a Living from Manga. Of special interest in the latest installment, covering TokyoPop's influence on the American manga market , DC's short-lived Minx line, and how you have better chance of winning the lottery, literally, than being a successful gaijin manga-ka in Japan.

I wouldn't be remotely happy doing anything else.

In other news, my Kickstarter finally closed at $83,100, which is literally more money than I've ever had access to at one time in my entire life. It's double the down payment I made for the apartment I'm currently sitting in.

And now you'll know better than to say something so stupid ever again. You're absolutely right, sir. For future reference, I'm a woman. But "sir" is fine. In my experience, a person only needs to draw on six sentences-- two statements-- before that person can accurately sum up what a person is or isn't. The ability do so as concisely as you do must be oh-so-handy. Has it occurred to ...

Her book was pulled off Amazon, she lost a chance at a $20,000 prize, and she hasn't worked as a writer since.

If you don't want feedback, you're in the wrong place. Go to Promotions. And stay there. If you only want positive feedback, stick to DeviantArt. Ego-stroking hug-circles a-plenty there, and always room for one more. And there's nothing extremist about discouraging idiocy. Hijacking an internationally bestselling chunk of Anne Rice's IP and expecting a forum full of reasonably literate ...

Hoping I'll give up and go away because you don't burst into rage-tears doesn't make you any less of a plagiarist, doll. What you're doing is morally and creatively cretinous. You don't have to acknowledge it, but it's fairly important you realize you're not fooling anybody. If you're interested in being taken remotely seriously, you'll self-correct. This is a forum for creative people, and ...

You're lucky this isn't graded. Why did I say "No." Hazard a guess. A wild, wacky guess. One about your confounding lack of originality.

Pop quiz. What was my input, and in what way are you thankful for it?
