I am not too suprised on the shipping, this kind of thing happens to me a lot. It's just kind of hard to justify the expense for me. I have been eyeing off some of the prints they have there for a while, though, so maybe if I got a couple of things the shipping wouldn't feel so painful. But do you k...

man, and I thought those maakies collections were long. This looks fantastic, chris. I would buy one today if the shipping wasn't twice as expensive as the book.

On the face, he's cartooning the light. On the arm, he's cartooning the form. Either is fine. I prefer light, but that's just me. It's just when you're doing both at the same time that the eye gets confused... I can't say I have ever really thought of 'cartooning the light' as a Thing before. Is it...

ghosts and monsters

My wife wendy has recently switched from making plush toys to focusing more on drawing, which is nice. I have set her up with a sketchblogg/website thing, which you all should go check out , as she draws some nice things. She's on a bit of a monster kick at the moment, so it's things like this http:...

wow. that guy sure is freaking out. I really like this, the linework is really expressive, the compositions and layouts are almost always interesting. I really like the sequence after "Everything around me is more vibrant..." perhaps because it's a bit more grounded in realness while still being a l...

His pipestem arms in the first and last panel don't work for me. maybe if you fill in the arm holes... Yeah? I think I like those just fine. I find the super-strong shadow on the guys head a little distracting, though. I think it's a good, simple little story maple. The look on the chubby guys face...

I think I prefer these to the pixel ones. The pixel ones seem a bit more polished, but that might just be a result of practice or something? I don't know. I think there's just a lot more scope for expression, there's a lot of physical stuff going on in the strips that could come across stronger in t...

Initially I wanted to read the speech balloons following the direction of the tunnel, so I was momentarily confused at the earthworm - I read dudley's balloon first. I kind of adjusted but there is that confusion between the rtl and ltr reading, when your eye is moving rtl and comes across the chara...

I really like this, Dash. I have more or less no idea what to make of it so far, but I like it a bunch. There's great use of colour and different media in there. I look forward to seeing where it goes.

Ha - I like that zap panel, the xray worlks great. You could probably work a little more on the hatching there, and in the last panel, it seems a little too rushed but that's a fairly small thing. There's some great expressivness in the monster, you could maybe push that even more in the eyes/eyebro...

Mmm, it's great to see those bigger, the art is so lovely. I do find it a little confusing to read though, not sure what it is. I think it's partly about what she's actually doing there. Is she building a sandcastle? Whatever that thing is it is there in the first panel, then it kind of disappears. ...

I'd like to see some larger images, I'm kind of squinting at my monitor here. There's this really nice glow to everything. Is the art painted or digital - or both? Reminds me a little of someone like Aya Takano? I would like to see more of this little story - are these two pages supposed to be seque...

I feel very strongly about the font I've chosen that I think it works well with the story. Sure, that's cool, I don't hate it or anything, I do think though there are a few jumps in size that are a bit distracting. Like when he says "I come to offer you something" it's much bigger than the previous...

I think it's interesting that this is the 'last scene' of chapter one. It seems like this would be a perfectly good beginning - I am not sure what would go before this that wouldn't detract from the 'mysterious opening'. I think you have done a great job of not being overly melodramatic, you have ke...
