Gray, Black and White (part 1)

I had to hold myself back from making a 50 shades joke so badly I feel chafing from the restraints.

Rather, this is about a webcomic's characters ...

Banes at 12:00AM, April 12, 2018


A character starts in one state of being, and ends in a very different state of being.

Contrast

Banes at 12:00AM, April 5, 2018




The first time I noticed the power of contrasts was in my friend's music. He's a massively talented songwriter, and aside from interesting melodies and chord progressions and powerful insights and images in his lyrics, he uses contrast a lot. Laughter and tears, being high but low, trapped ...

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 ...

Say My Name: Titles

Banes at 12:00AM, March 15, 2018



Say My Name

There are titles that fit perfectly with their subject, titles that could fit multiple subjects/contexts, and titles that don't work at all.
