Creating a Cast - in 1-2-3

One of the challenges…and maybe one of the greatest pleasures…of creating a series is populating it with a cast of heroes. I know I spend many weeks or months tinkering with characters and deciding who they're going to be. …And how many ...

Drawing the Line

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 14, 2018




We live in a world that can be exceedingly beautiful or appallingly harsh, and everything in between.

What happens when ordinary people suddenly become massively super-powered, possessed of abilities well outside of the dreams of any normal person? Comics tell us they become either super heroes or super villains, this comic looks at it another way… They become gods. Or at least that's how they think ...

Proving Your Progressiveness?

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, June 30, 2018



Yesterday, Mks_Monsters asked me to talk about an experience of hers, which I have seen being shared with a range of creators belonging to certain social groups (female, LGBTQ, POC, etc) if their occasional tweets on the matter are to be believed: That support for them on the basis of ...

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, March 17, 2018




Earlier today Ozoneocean made a pretty interesting post at Facebook, regarding how demons are depicted in modern culture as opposed to how they were earlier, and especially what they symbolized in western culture: they are now generally depicted as sexy, good, glittering, or misunderstood.

Depicting Cultures Different than Your Own

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Feb. 10, 2018



Depicting a culture different to ours can be a tricky process.

Creators vs. Readers

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Jan. 6, 2018



Creators and Readers are two groups that go hand in hand. In a very substantial way when it comes to art, one cannot exist without the other- Art is created to be seen, heard, felt and read or otherwise enjoyed (including eating it), even if the only one doing that ...
