Live the dream, don't talk about it!Doug TenNapel, independent comics creator, is an inspiration to me in many ways. He has a fun, accessible art style that is dramatic and fresh. His story telling is always askew in the best of ways. I don't think I've read one of his graphic novels without having some smiles and a surprise or two along the way. On top of that, he is outspoken about almost everything in his life. (I think of him as the Rush Limbaugh of comics- oh man, that sounds really bad, but early Rush, not present day Rush, if that helps.) I agree with most things he states on Facebook. BUT- the thing I am most inspired about him is his drive (in the old days we would call that "work ethic"). The guy does NOT give up. Because of that, he single-handedly will put out a new graphic novel a year. While creating a webcomic. While pitching new TV show development ideas in Hollywood. While running a half marathon. While working freelance jobs.Live the dream, don't talk about it!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Soapbox Derpy!Well the site is live now! There's not much up yet, and the layout will be changing gradually over time. It's mostly a copy/paste of all the other Fresh Epic's comic layouts for now, but we do have plans to expand it and change it eventually. For now, however, you can comment, use icons, browse the archive (for the 1 comic that's up right now) and etc.Soapbox Derpy!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Soapbox Derpy is my new site dedicated to politics, geek culture, and pretty much anything else that I want to "get up on a soapbox" to talk about (hence the name). I'm gonna try to stick to a pretty simple regular schedule of 1 comic a week on this site, but there's a good possibility that I won't be able to keep that. Mostly because when I make a new comic for the site it's gonna be about something topical and current, so I don't want to wait for weeks to pass before things become irrelevant.
Second, I want to be able to give you all the time and ability to discuss things in the comments section. I'll be doing my best to not ban or blo

Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKSSo... that last journal was a doosie wasn't it? 500+ comments and counting! Yikes. I can always count on Anita Sarkeesian to give me tons of views, lol. All joking aside, that was a very serious batch of discussions. Anytime we talk about sexism and objectification of women in gaming or geek culture, it's sure to get a lot of responses.Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly since Anita is such a hot-topic around the internet, there was more than one person who were trying to claim that there actually isn't ANY issue with the game industry involving sexism at all. To them, this whole idea that women are marginalized or objectified or treated badly both in the gaming industry and in geek culture is just false. It doesn't exist. And any attempt to explain why we need to change things is inherently flawed because there's no reason to do so.
So in the interest of trying to debunk that bullshit, I made a list of sources I accumulated around the internet to prove that this is indeed a problem. I think everyone can benefit f

TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS/STUDENTS...It's amazing how setting goals can make you unhappy.TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS/STUDENTS...1 month ago in Personal More Like This
For a long time, I've always thought to myself: "I'm not quite as good, but I will be once I've met my goal." Or, " Once I've reached my goal, I'll be happy, I'll be successful." I'm sure that I am not alone in this mode of thinking and as a result we ultimately push our own happiness to the back, unless we accomplish some major milestone.
We place ridiculous stress on ourselves to lose weight, get a promotion...finishing a comic or whatever.
But I think setting goals seem useless without a system or process in place to reach them. I'm learning more that it's important to understand the difference between goals & systems. The goal is the desired end result, the system is the process, or practice that (if committed to) eventually gets you there. Focusing on practice instead of performance allows you to be present, and improve at the same time. Planning progress (Goal) vs. Making progress (System).

February PromptAh, the month of love has come and it is time to give special notice to the romance of Kaidan Alenko. As you might expect this prompt to be something of the sappy, romantic, “twue love” (had to borrow from Princess Bride, sorry) connotation, let’s not forget what comes on the other side of true love. Regret, longing, the should have’s, could have’s, what if’s of love. Love never runs an easy course and it has been proven when you romance Kaidan, that it has indeed been a bumpy journey.February Prompt2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
In that vein, BloodBandit has gone down this route as a prompt for February. Instead of giving a month for this prompt, this will run two weeks. Since voting took so long, partly my fault for not getting to it in a timely manner, but I would like then start the next month’s prompt on time.

Start your own SketchBomb!Hey Everyone!Start your own SketchBomb!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
A while back I teased the idea of anyone being able to start a SketchBomb. Now is that time!
I'm proud to announce that SketchBomb: Open Source! Now groups can form without my direct involvement. I've always wanted to keep in contact and be involved with all of the SketchBombs across the US, but unfortunately I just can't keep up. The hope is that this will increase the growth of SketchBomb and allow all those who have asked in the past to start their own.
The first of these groups is also our first overseas SketchBomb: :iconsketchbomb-newdelhi: run by :iconkshiraj: !
I've prepared a logo pack at this link: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B1lJ2PYhz1shRTJ5dmUtdk9yYUE&usp=sharing
It also contains the rules for hosting a SketchBomb. I hope it doesn't come off as too tight-fisted, but these rules are in place to make it more fun and inclusive for all. They are at the heart of SketchBomb's success.

I know that textbooks and supplies can absolutely bleed you dry, so I'm reducing my prices to their point minimums for the time being. (think it's 10 cents?)
Good luck, you'll do great in your classes.
Manage your time.
Get good sleep.
Form meaningful friendships. You have to share lab time.
Don't be too hard on yourself.
But don't procrastinate.
PRoduce bad, ugly work without procrastinating.
You will get better, faster.
(P.S. The reason why I am so far behind on my request list is that stash seems to ALWAYS jam for hours and reject my stock uploads. I don't understand why. Maybe the latest round of stash fixes fixed this)

With regret I have to announce that, due to my inability to supply the prizes, the contest is effectively frozen. I hope to resume the contest some time later in the year, and all entries that have already been submitted will be automatically re-submitted when I do.
Apologies to those who made an effort to submit before the original deadline, and those who may still be working on entries. I will still add entries to this page if you wish to submit them, ready for when the contest is resumed.
I will make another journal announcement when the time comes, thank you for your patience.
The theme of this competition is 'Masters of Misconduct', and I want to see how well you can depict a true master of one of three categories; Thievery, Assassination or Piracy. There will be a subscription prize for the winner in each category, and a bonus cross-category prize to the best entry.
You will be competing for these titles
