And To All A Good Night

Banes at 12:00AM, Dec. 24, 2015



I love Christmas Eve. Possibly more than Christmas Day. Both are great fun, and reuniting with friends and relatives I rarely see is delightful of course.

But the quiet anticipation of Christmas Eve is where it's at. For me it's usually a day off work, wrapping (occasionally running ...

And So We Disconnect

I began creating webcomics because it was an affordable hobby. All I needed to create a page was some bristol paper, some black ink pens, a scanner and a computer. Having a digitally-formatted final product cut out the additional printing costs of traditional comics.

Eventually, I started learning new drawing ...

Making Use of the Public Library

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, May 11, 2015



I live in a relatively small, suburban city that does not have an apparent central Art's District hub where creative energies flock like major cities. The closest areas for art inspiration are usually the laid back independently-owned tea shops or coffee lounges where local artists hang their art prints ...

Mumblecore in Webcomics

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, April 20, 2015

Traditional Art in Webcomics

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



We've talked a few times in newsposts and Quackcasts about how tablets have made digital art more convenient than ever. But as much as I enjoy the clean lines and bright colours of digital drawing, when inspiration strikes I still often find myself reaching for my sketchbook and ProMarkers ...
