Amazed by how some educators, teachers and people in general treat comics and comic creators. Like we are all lazy, non-talented story tellers, who produce work of nothing but pictures that has no value for kids and that our careers are basically a joke…. you are really misguided. Comics are not just about zombies and […]

Happy New Year. I hope you enjoy the updates- Make your goals your adventures. Let them become a quest and every quest needs a good map. So just dont write out your goal, map it out and then follow the path to the x. Watch for traps and pitfalls, look for the clues to make […]

Webcomic artists- a little shop talk – If you are telling an epic story with your webcomic, don’t be afraid of backgrounds and environments. Seriously, make your world stand out. If you cannot draw backgrounds, rooms, places etc… I would suggest you start to figure out how. You limit your ability to tell a story […]
