Anime is not art?Long time no news post, however something has grabbed my attention as of late.Anime is not art?7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Something i believe is worth writing about. Someone boldly stated to me: 'Anime is not Art fool!' and i replied, slightly irritated, 'Anime is art! if its not, tell me what is!'
And then there was some heated debate which I wont go into details with. But it did get me thinking:
a) Why dont people consider anime art?
b) Can anime really be considered a legitimate art form?
I guess to understand this we'll need a little context. Get out your history books kiddos!
When i think manga i think cartoons, however its origins go much further back then that (800 years!), and began as drawings in temples. The pictures can be considered forerunners of modern day manga because of their hard edged, often exaggerated contour. In the 1600's this new style of drawing began to be replicated on wooden blocks, and by the 1700's books began to be developed.

Tapastic PPP for Comic Artists!Hey guys! It was great meeting everyone in San Francisco last weekend!Tapastic PPP for Comic Artists!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In other news, there's a great new program for comic artists that I would like to share. It's part of Tapastic's Primetime Publishing Program (PPP) that pays comic artists based on the amount of page views they generate. If you are a comic artist, then you can make some extra money doing what you love. If you're not a comic artist, you can still check out all the cool webcomics on Tapastic.com and help support the artists that way

Journey.Last night, I played Journey for the first time. (No spoilers below, don't worry! I encourage commenters not to be spoilish either!)Journey.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think around the second stage, I met another person, and we played through the game all the way to the end. Despite having known the game was designed around random meetings with other people online, I always thought it'd just be kind of hindrance or possibly annoying to have someone else mucking around in my lonely desert toilings.
'Davideogamer'! If you are out there somewhere, I hope you realize you made what would have been an awesome game experience into a FREAKING UNBELIEVABLE ONE.
To ANYONE who plays Journey on the PS3.. I hope that your first run through is met with another traveler, because you would not believe the sort of experience the whole thing evolves into. In many ways, it does this without you even realizing it. I could wax poetic about it for a paragraph but like many reviews I read about it on the net, I concur, the
