ART IMITATES LIFE IMITATES ART

HyenaHell at 12:00AM, May 19, 2017



As all y'all probably are well aware, I am a hilarious genius. All cartoonists are hilarious geniuses; we have to be! Well, half the time anyway- the other half we spend hating ourselves and overcompensating for our inadequacies. It's a storied and well-documented tradition dating back to the ...

UK Web & Mini Comix Thing review

I wanted to post this as a separate newspost partly because I think it should be posted as such and partly because I can. :P
