A few words about „graphic novels“I really, really dislike the term "graphic novel". But why? At a first glance, it may sound like it lends the medium some well-deserved decency, which the term "comics" doesn't. But under any interpretation, I find the term "graphic novel" to be derogative. Mostly for these two reasons:A few words about „graphic novels“2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) It implies that comics should be ashamed of themselves and should strive to be more like novels!
2) It implies that comics which can't be called "graphic novels" are of lesser value!
Now, I love comics. Not specific comics (although there are specific comics I love ), but I love comics as such. That is, I love the medium. I love the possibilities, I love the totality of them, I love their diversity, I love the specific mixture of crafts and skills. I love the sort of stand-alone comics that would be called graphic novels (two of the usual suspects being Art Spiegelman's "Maus" and Chris Ware's "Jimmy Corrigan"), I love the mainstream monthlies, I love indies, I love high-brow and low-brow alike.

What the Writers Did RIGHT (Opinion)It’s a well-known fact online that the “Voyager” writers had to make a lot of choices over the show’s seven year run, and it was probably impossible to please everyone. Some were angry that Kes was bumped off and “replaced” by Seven of Nine; some thought “Voyager” overused the Borg; some wish it would’ve had continuing story arcs like “Deep Space Nine.” Re-watching the DVDs, I’ll admit that there are things I wish they had done differently. That being said though, I think the writers deserve more credit that they get, at least in some regards. Comparing the later seasons to the earlier ones, one can see a lot of changes that—in my humble opinion—were for the better.What the Writers Did RIGHT (Opinion)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
The following is a matter of opinion. I’m not trying to flame anything, and I’m hoping there won’t be too many flames in response. If you do respond with a flame though, I’ll request that you do so in a funny, t

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!Well yep Christmas time, I am typing this off of my new laptop YAY!! This also means that i'm on winter break and am going to actually upload alot of the stuff I've been doing. But, at this moment I am trying to decide what program to start using with my tablet. Before I have been using Corel painters 4, but it is really out dated and its between trying to use that again or move on and try and use SAI and maybe Photoshop. I downloaded it on my old laptop but, I had no clue on how to use it at all, and photoshop is just fucking expensive. So, I have no clue on what I wanna do and on top of that my crappy printer won't work with my sexy new laptop. If anyone has any advice on what i should do/ pick then PLEASE help me T^T.MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

HiIt's been so long since I did one of these....which seems like everyone ends up saying lol. I'm in my freshman year of college now and so far so good. I like this alot better than high school. Everything seems calmer and I am not as stressed as I used to be. Now that I am in college I feel alot more determined to get better at drawing and coloring. I know that if I keep trying I will get better. It is not half assed like I did in some sports either and I actually feel like I'm good at this. I have a passion for it and will keep going till I get better at it. Also I know I wanna do animation and illustration. Just those things amaze me and I wanna be apart of stuff like that but, I digress.Hi1 month ago in Personal More Like This
ANY WHO.... I am going to be posting more stuff from this day on. Eventually I am going to try and do commissions too. Either I just feel so happy and giddy about my future. I can't really explain why though oh well.. THANKS FOR READING THIS WHOLE THING PEOPLE!!
