Codex here with a riddle for you: What do you get when you cross a 55-year-old mushroom and a diving shoulder roll*?
Answer: A half-finished comic and an artist who can neither sit nor stand for very long.
So prayers would be much appreciated, not only for healing, but for finding work-arounds so that if the good Lord in his Wisdom wants me side-lined for a while, the things folks are counting on me to do get done.
(*Another super fun activity like leaping side kicks and tree climbing that Codex is no longer allowed to do. Sigh.)
Codex here. So, a few Saturdays ago, I wrote about a game of illustrator prompts called Monster Art Battle.
I left our humble readers with the challenge: Design a monster with that contains (in some way) “mobster”, “squid,” and “pet kitten.”
Here’s what I came up with:
Soooo… D’you want any other prompts from the convention panel?
(True confession: I had to look up “tommy gun” on google images. But it was still fun to draw)
I signed up at a Twitter alternative that seems to be gaining traction called gab.ai yesterday. They started beta two weeks ago. A number of prominent social media users have gab accounts, including Milo Yiannopoulos (@m), Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet), Lauren Southern (@LaurenSouthern) and Spacebunny Day (@Spacebunny). I’m sure there are more, and if you have recommendations of who I should follow (including you!), you can leave a comment or Tweet me (@QuizzerW) or Gab me (@Quizzer). Continue reading
Codex here: Q has a funeral to go to so he’s skipping this week’s Thursday post.
So I’m taking the opportunity to kick Facebook around a little. As you might guess from the title, I loathe the platform with fiery hatred of a thousand burning suns. Q thought I was being unfair and a social media dinosaur. Since I’m not a big fan of Tumblr, Instagram or Twitter either, (and don’t get me started on Pinterest—! Gah! So much dislike!) I thought he had a point. Maybe Facebook would work for Tempest in a Teardrop.
Seriously, it seems as if Facebook is eating our comic. Before we got on it, he could tell if we’d done a comic that didn’t go so well. This whole comic-ing thing is a learning curve for both writer and illustrator, and getting a great yawning chasm of nothing where we used to get feedback is a big energy sink. As far as we can tell you have to pay the Beast with eyeball time (LOTS) and or money if it’s not going to disappear you.
Is there a way to actually connect on the thing? I’d say “no,” but maybe you readers who use and or like it (I find the latter hard to believe, but hey, it takes all kinds) can let us know what we should be doing?
We’re trying to switch over to our own domain name – https://tempestinateardrop.com – but it breaks the old RSS feed atm. So sorry for the RSS Feed spam!
