Screencap taken from video referenced below.

In comics, particularly when it comes ...

Cooperation vs. Competition in Comics

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 24, 2019



Ozoneocean suggested this topic, and I am intrigued to explore it.

I've made a good few posts about assorted drama in the comic world, especially between different factions and concerning different approaches to the art. Often that is addressed from a strictly ideological point of view. But today I ...

Emma_Clare at 12:00AM, Aug. 16, 2019



Creating a webcomic is a multi-faceted endeavour. There are many moving parts from writing to drawing to managing social media accounts and everything in between.

I've mentioned before in other articles how Twitter, and often comics/art Twitter especially, can be a total dumpster fire with flame wars erupting every two hours or so.

There have been many analyses on why this is happening, from efforts of established comic creators to gatekeep the field ...

Working with Political Agendas

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, June 15, 2019



Lately more and more comics and animated features seem to consciously, and more importantly loudly, incorporate political messages in their stories. From feminism to social stratification and discrimination, to racism and xenophobia or even depression and psychological trauma.

I think John Byrne once said he did about two or three pages a day (I believe it was an eight hour workday).

Of course, the length of time a page will require depends a lot on what KIND of comic you're doing! A stick figure comic or sprite ...

A Short List of Writing Tips

Banes at 12:00AM, April 11, 2019

I watched a great series of interview clips with a writer/producer/teacher named Dr. Ken Atchity on the Film Courage channel. He talks about screenwriting, and productive creativity in general. Great interviews from a guy who I find quite inspiring, and in a down-to-earth kind of way.
