Secondly, popularity doesn't mean anything. Celine Dion is popular. Friends is popular. Megatokyo is popular. No offense to people who may like one or all of those things, but they turn my stomach. Popularity is no guarantee of quality. More readers does not make your comic any less imperfect or ab...

If your strips continue to get wordier and cheesecake-ier and more confusing, I'll just stop reading. But I can guarantee that I won't be the only one. My consistent exponential rise in site traffic since the Hob story began would indicate otherwise, but that's neither here nor there. I'm not dismi...

Nothing I will say or do at this point will please you. The direction and scope I have in mind for Hob will not entertain you, nor will it live up to the "glory days" of older strips that you believe to be superior. Most of the changes you want to the strip are out of line with what I want to do wit...

I'm going to repeat what I said earlier: most of your complaints will actually be addressed in future pages. Be patient. You shouldn't take everything at face value. For example: They have lightning bolts on their shirts, so they throw the future people out a window? So lightning bolts equals super ...

Kim's bottom eclipsing the Time Travelers is a symbolic composition of her asserting dominance and control over the situation, not to mention a rejection of the potential future that has just been presented to her. She's been almost entirely passive throughout the story until now, and it was importa...

Actually the butt shot in the most recent one was partially motivated by accusations of "fan service" in the past. Also, I like the composition of her body eclipsing the time travelers, and doing it over the shoulder or with the torso wouldn't fit. The biggest reason, however, is that I thought it w...

Page 11 is up. I've quit my non-comic day job now so hopefully I can actually get some pages out more quickly.

Having worked with mine for about a week now I can definitely say it's improved my work output significantly. No more eye strain or hand cramps, and drawing things is actually fun again instead of a chore. If I can keep my schedule at this new pace this thing will pay for itself really soon!

So I got my Cintiq today!

I'm not fully accustomed to it yet, but it's definitely more efficient than my Intuos. The colors were a little off at first but I played with the calibration a bit and got it looking fine. Overall I'm definitely happy with it. Well worth the purchase.

Buying a Cintiq

So I'm going full time art/comics now, and am considering buying a Cintiq tablet. Right now I have a 6x11 Intuos that's done pretty well, but I miss the act of actually seeing something when I draw. As all my stuff is full digital, tablet powers are essential. So has anyone here used or owned one? I...

I was there and I saw some people! Also some people gave me money in exchange for things. Good times.

Posted a new page. I think the story should start to make more sense now (hopefully maybe). Also with the flashback (or flash forward I guess) sequence I basically tried to crib Moebius' style. Not sure how it turned out. it's late.

My brain just exploded drawing this one. It's been a while, but I like how it turned out.
