Memes

Banes at 12:00AM, March 16, 2017




A Meme is a comic, really. Pictures and words put together to get some kind of point across.

It's a fascinating phenomenon. I'm tempted to try to explain what they are, but the meme up top has reminded me not to attempt that.

Seeing them, whether I understand ...

Chekhov's Gun

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Jan. 7, 2017



To me this is one of the most fascinating elements of storytelling. The idea behind Chekhov’s Gun is to employ parsimony in the information comprising a plot and content: If something isn’t essential to the story, just don’t include it. Little by little, it became more “if ...

The Table Scene

Getting involved in your local arts community

HippieVan at 12:00AM, April 1, 2016



I think most of us who live in or near big cities have been to comic conventions. But despite having such a huge concentration of artists here, we seldom seem to talk about broader arts communities. I’ve always been a casual patron of local art galleries, but the curatorial ...

Confidence in Art

HippieVan at 12:00AM, Nov. 6, 2015


Art by Gunwallace
