Quackcast 380 - Going back, retro style

Ozoneocean at 12:00AM, June 26, 2018


Retro is GOOoooooooooood! Damn good. Don't underestimate the power of retro. Old material and the past is where pure gold hides. Mine that stuff for all it's worth! But it can be overdone and when it is it's like warmed over fish and chips, it becomes tired and stale… Lets not talk about that though. What we chatted about here was the idea of mining your old work for good stuff. What was great, showed cool promise, or was some awesome but forgotten thing from your old comic work? You are perfectly free to revisit it, shine it up and impress the world. Many of the great artists and musicians of the world made their mark with that.
Sometimes the world is not ready for your good stuff at the time you publish it, so many you're later you can go back and re-release it to one that is! Bands you to do that ALL the time. The past is a great place to look for inspiration.

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to Redneck: Bluegrass dubstep! Fast tasty beats, lyrical guitar and a bass that drops right onto your head! Disturbing, unsettling and yet strangely compelling.

It can. Have you tried recreating your own exact style? That could be boring, or maybe amazing... I don't know.

Revisiting styles past, of your own or others, and filtering through your current perspective/skill can be quite fun.

It's useful to do I think. I should do it more myself.

I've been doing that a lot lately. Sword of Kings is a redo of a comic done nine years ago as Go A Viking. At times I wonder if I will ever get around to doing something new.
