Boring Heroes, Fun Villains

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Feb. 4, 2017

Webcomics don't need to follow rules.

They are often created by one person and don't need to answer to editors, publishers or money-type-people. They can be made by just you, and can be made for an audience of just a couple friends or relatives…or just for yourself ...

What is the best atmosphere to create in? This applies to art, of course, but also to just about anything you might be working on independently.

Comicking your feelings

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Nov. 4, 2016



I’ve been going through a bit of a rough patch lately in terms of my mental health. I don’t talk about it that often, but I don’t keep it a secret that I’ve always struggled with anxiety. Recently I started on medication for it for the ...

A True Scary Encounter

Banes at 12:00AM, Oct. 13, 2016



I continue to be an occasional fan of true scary stories found online. The “realistic” ones are cautionary tales, and might even give an important reminder to be on guard and keep one's eyes open…and the more unusual/“unexplained” stories are pretty darned entertaining and addictive!

It was a blisteringly hot Thursday morning when my nine-year-old pupil pulled out a cell phone and opened an app saying, “There is a Ponyta in the area!” Having grown up in a Pokemon World, and knowing a good chunk of the original 151 pokemon, I said, “Wait, don't ...
