|How To Make Comics
||[Aug. 4th, 2011|01:49 am]
For any budding cartoonists out there, here's a handy guide to my creative process:
It seems we suffer a similar process. I still think you're wonderful anyway.
Substitute the video games with the even less productive act of watching cartoons and sketch tv and you have my process.
The vortex can take many forms (although I think watching cartoons is probably more productive!). If you're really lucky it can even make you do housework!
I know this - this is the spiral I get caught in everytime I try getting back to making art! I'm not alone!! YAAAAAAYYY!
(I felt compelled to post out of pity for this entry, sitting there with only three comments...)
Hurrah! Wait - I clicked on your user name and it took me to a site selling v1agra. Damn you!
Hrm. Fixed it. Now it's back to the swearing and crude pinko propaganda.
Too, too true. WHY DO WE DO THIS AGAIN?????
We can always hope to land on that lucky 'sweet release of death' space. Maybe next time round!
This is amazing! I just need to switch out "video game vortex" to "wasting time on the internet" as my biggest loop and it closely mirrors my process... I also love the self doubt goblin.
Loved it! I actually spent time going through every loop...
What video games are you wasting your time with these days, and what system are you on?
I see various Mario characters, a Minecraftian Giant Green Phallus of Destruction, and a miffed bird...
A friend just sent me a link to this and you have perfectly summed up the creative process. So that leaves me sitting on the "God everyone is making such good comics!" space.
