Re: Inspiration: Airship: Aircruise Concept

It looks pretty cool. I thought it was funny how they have a big screen in the living room, in case you get bored of the view. I could just imagine people shuttering the windows to watch something inane on TV. (Kind of like the astronaut who brought Battlestar Galactica DVD's with him into space.) I...

Re: See a Spam thread? PM ME OR REPORT IT!

Often I'll see them and just delete them myself. Should I report them instead? Are you keeping track of who's posting them?

Re: Inglourious Basterds

This movie is terrific (in all senses of that word) from start to finish. Usually when there's so much suspense and dramatic irony in a movie, it starts to hold me at a distance—but in this one, there is such a delightful/disturbing reward in every scene that it kept absorbing me. I feel like so man...

Re: Mustek Scanner

Hey that looks like a great deal--but I'm concerned about whether it can be used easily on a mac. The Amazon reviewers seem to have a split opinion. I'm wondering if the gripers just don't know how to install a driver or if something is legitimately wrong with the product. Otherwise, the price seems...

I like your coloring/lighting here! My only nitpick would be that her pose looks a bit unbalanced.

Yeah, I think it was motivated by the observation that there are a lot of asian american comics creators and few asian american characters--so the theme is basically asian american characters by asian american creators. I don't know if there's anything more specific than that. Gau dog, you should po...

Thank you! There's more in the link there... I'll try to put more in the set soon. Looks like brush markers and ink washes maybe? The grey tones are marker, but I'm glad it looks like wash; that's what I was going for. I've come up with a way to add color to the grey marker without making it look mu...

small sketches

My desk goes through an ebb and flow of little doodles on Post-It notes, receipts, envelopes etc., which pile up before I have to dump them all. I indulgently took some pictures of a few and put them in this set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/neilphotos/sets/72157616541802103/ I'll add more now and t...

I didn't realize I was drawing a story! :shock:

I am really looking forward to reading this book. There is a story by Gene Yang and Sonny Liew?! :D

You lost me at "...when people aren't as smart as they are now"--that's like reading, you won't relate to this at all. I think it's a pretty fatal premise for any story.

But I agree with nateomedia; keep practicing!

Thank you thirdeyeh! Yep, this is mostly made with a brush. Some details like the grass on page 1 were made with a pen.

I should point out that the comic has now concluded, so it can be read in its entirety on http://girlamatic.com and now also on http://kidjutsu.com , a new site for kids' comics.

I saw this movie a few weeks ago. I wouldn't call it profound in any sense, but it was definitely a fun ride; probably the most impulsive, crowd-pleasing movie I've seen this year. Everyone in the audience seemed to have a content smile on their face when the lights went up--probably also because th...

mell redux

Shaenon Garrity and I have been working on this "Li'l Mell and Sergio" story for a looong time--mostly because I had to take several hiatuses, and she's been very patient with me! It's finally winding up now, and has been on a consistent weekly schedule for a while, so I thought I'd put up a little ...

Adam,

We are 7 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time.

So, click on "Profile" at the top of the page, scroll down to "Timezone," and select "GMT - 7 hours".
