Technical glitch

Okay, so the most recent comic has uploaded. You can see it on the main page, but when you go to the comics section it's stuck on number 14. Why is it doing that? I have no idea. I'll have a fiddle with it.

Okay, then... Next week I will be on holidays at the beach, so I'm going to upload all of the comics over the weekend and then have them show on the days I need them to. In other news, there will be a short break of, like a week between the Christmas comic, which I'll post on Christmas eve, and the New Years Eve comic, hopefully posted early-ish on New Years Eve or the day before that...

Beating a dead horse...

I was watching TV last night and saw previews of that new movie Paranormal Activity that they're bringing out. To me, it just looks like yet another victim of the "6th Sense Syndrome." This is where film-makers copy an idea of one successful movie of the same genre into their own movie, based on the 'Plot twist' idea from the movie The 6th Sense. For instance; the original Blair Witch Project basically caused mass hysteria because the producers advertised it as a real recording found in the woods blah, blah, blah... It was basically just a movie with a low budget, shot on a shoddy, shaky camcorder. Since then, they've brought out movies like [REC] (or Quarantine, which was the American release version), Cloverfield, and now this. To me, it's pretty much making too many hamburgers out of the same cow... pretty soon, the meat wears a bit thin. (This is actually a saying, I did not just make that up)

Anywho, on to different, comic related news. I hope to have the comics up in colour by the Christmas spread. Hooray!

That is all, you may go now...

The "Artistic Process" pt 2

I have a very low coherency level. Personally, I'm only coherent for a couple of hours a day. After that, I write comics. (No, seriously.) I have about a few hours where I actually think about what I'm doing, and then after that it just goes by in a blur. Occasionally I write comics in there, I'm not quite sure how, but I get, like, one good comic out of every three I come up with. If that. That's why I don't update every day... sorta...

The "Artistic process"

I have been asked how I come up with my comics. The answer is kinda confusing... You see, I have about three different thought processes when I start out on a comic;

* The first process is that the idea for the comic comes from something I've done or a conversation I've had. These are the more numerous of the comics I draw.

* The second ones are ones that the story comes from the sadistic part of my brain which uses sarcasm to make fun of people. Most of the time I can keep this in check, but when I can't, I use Damian as an outlet. Damian has got to be one of my favourite characters. I get to say all the things I wish I could say in real life, but can't because I might offend someone. Here it's okay, though (apparently) because I use stereotypes...

* Lastly, and my favourite type of comic, is the type where I have no idea what to do and just start drawing random comics. The first panel is usually just strange, and then it gets weirder from there... Check out the latest (10th) comic if you don't believe me...

So basically, I really don't have an answer, and just used the question as an excuse to ramble on about stuff. It's fun...
