What is one of the big things that holds us back? Normally it’s us caring too much, caring about what we do, how we look, what others think and more.

Last week, while writing the article The Magic of Frames I was talking to PIT_FACE about it and she ...

On 'Fixing' Art

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, May 22, 2021



So the other day I came across a whole twitter quarrel between a famous Spiderman artist and an anonymous (potentially teenaged) “art fixer”. Usually I tend to support or find some kind of explanation or excuse for the underdog- the non-famous, small account, low tier, unrecognized artist rather than the ...

The Problem With Urban Fantasy

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, May 8, 2021



Sooo… I love some good urban fantasy. I think I've always had, even before I knew what I liked was called that. The idea that a world full of magic exists behind a thin veil of concealment, the idea that wizards or elves or fairies could walk among us ...

Guilty Pleasure: The Love Triangle Between the Alpha and the Beta

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Nov. 4, 2019



While binge watching Schitt’s Creek, I started to see the emerging love story between Alexis Rose, Mutt the bad-boy, and Ted the veterinarian. That was when I wanted to discuss one of my favorite comic tropes of the alpha male versus the beta male.

In Spiderman, Harry Osbourne is ...

I promise, this is not going to be another opportunity for me to take a shot at Game of Thrones.

In fact, this time I'm seeking to use the example to illustrate another way to approach suspense and intensify the engagement of your audience with the story and the ...

Time travel is a narrative trap. It's quicksand.
