For me to rabble and ramble incoherently. Or to talk about Creative Freedom comics like Defenders of the Gene. Same thing , really

“Mythology is not a disease at all, though it may like all human things become diseased. You might as well say that thinking is a disease of the mind. It would be more near the truth to say that languages, especially modern European languages, are a disease of mythology. But Language cannot, all the same, be dismissed. The incarnate mind, the tongue, and the tale are in our world coeval. The human mind, endowed with the powers of generalization and abstraction, sees not only green-grass, discriminating it from other things (and finding it fair to look upon), but sees that it is green as well as being grass. But how powerful, how stimulating to the very faculty that produced it, was the invention of the adjective: no spell or incantation in Faerie is more potent. And that is not surprising: such incantations might indeed be said to be only another view of adjectives, a part of speech in a mythical grammar. The mind that thought of light, heavy, grey, yellow, still, swift, also conceived of magic that would make heavy things light and able to fly, turn grey lead into yellow gold, and the still rock into a swift water. If it could do the one, it could do the other; it inevitably did both. When we can take green from grass, blue from heaven, and red from blood, we have already an enchanter’s power — upon one plane; and the desire to wield that power in the world external to our minds awakes. It does not follow that we shall use that power well upon any plane. We may put a deadly green upon a man’s face and produce a horror; we may make the rare and terrible blue moon to shine; or we may cause woods to spring with silver leaves and rams to wear fleeces of gold, and put hot fire into the belly of the cold worm. But in such “fantasy,” as it is called, new form is made; Faerie begins; Man becomes a sub-creator.”

J. R. R. Tolkien (via yedois)

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this interview with Stan Lee and the Romitas. Easily one of my favorites. Like, it’s not even the most smooth interview cause I’m pretty sure it’s sorta a commercial for marvel or Stan’s persona kinda gets in the way, but once the guys go over to the drawing board, oh man, it just opens right up. They joke, tease and play around and it’s one of the most motivating and inspiring things for me to have on in the background while I’m working. Sr. is very clearly someone with a great appreciation for the comics medium and a lot of thoughts and ideas on how to work and what makes great comics, clarity, storytelling, work ethic, but for the most part is just too damn nice to say a lot of them, and JRJR is just as hard a worker, with just as strong an understanding of comics and what should be done. Just a couple of class acts. Love it

I love some of the Pokémon Fusion drawings I’ve seen.  Some of the ones that are just so crazy and cool, and pretty much anything combined with Haunter or Cubone/Marowak turns crazy and scary.  Instead, I got Kingler and Flareon, Kingeon. Also practice in digital color/painting

X-Men sort of morning.  Kinda miss the old stories, just don’t feel the same about what’s been done the last few years.  Well, actually at this point it’s been like 15 years since I really enjoyed the way the x-books were done.  I don’t know, I liked the clairmont era.  And I know it’s probably blasphemous, but I never cared for Grant Morrison’s run.

But I’ve heard good things about the new x-book with the original team time-traveling and now there are two versions, I may have to get the first trade.

but yea, x doodles

Hi, folks. Here’s a five-page preview of a mini I hope to have on sale next week. (People ask me for advice on a weekly basis, anyway; might as well consolidate it all into one handy package.) Stuff I plan to include:
What to ask the printer
How to calculate your goal properly
How to price and sell your books
Good backer bonus ideas
Your Frenemy The Post Office
Self-promotion
And so on and soforth.
It’ll probably run 30 or so pages- it’s roughed out that far, anyway- And I’ll be selling it for $5.00.
I’ll drop you folks an update when it’s finished.
