Hey, what’s Winnie the pooh’s favorite color?
No it’s red because of his shirt
No, it’s yellow because he loves honey
You have no idea what you’re talking about
DID I FUCKING STUTTER?
Things heating up at the Winnie the Pooh fandom
From Surfer Mag. Munch and night, rip all day! I heard he’s riding a six inch thick board.
The bodies of two Houston women, a lesbian couple, were discovered near a dumpster in Galveston County, Texas. Share this:
They had a 5 year old child together too.
Unacceptable and horrific. We demand justice. We demand safety.
An Open Letter To Portland and The World From “The Black Portlanders”
My name is Intisar Abioto. I am a photographer and explorer here in Portland. I’m writing about The Black Portlanders. Since February 2013, I’ve taken over 500 portraits of…

I LEARNED A THING
Original double-page splash by John Romita Jr. (pencils) and Klaus Janson (inks) from The Amazing Spider-Man #585, published by Marvel, April 2009.
When I was a kid (way before 2009), JRJ was also penciling the Amazing Spider-Man (best story: Nothing Can Stop The Juggernaut!), and he’d do occasional multi-figure panels of Spider-Man jumping or swinging or climbing acrobatically, and I thought it was just about the greatest thing ever.
And looking at this panel now, I’ve gotta say, it’s still pretty damn cool.
“Self-publishing comics has never carried the stigma it does in the prose world, but it’s an arduous process, and it can be prohibitively expensive, especially in print.”
Emphasis mine. I don’t know if it rivals prose, but I’m pretty sure 80s self publishers faced a significant stigma in the US. Also, what part of self publishing digital comics is prohibitively expensive? Most distributors like Amazon and Gumroad have no up front costs. Even if they were talking about print, what about zine comics?
One of the great things about comics is that, since the invention of the copy machine, it’s *hasn’t* been prohibitively expensive.
In the 1980s, self-publishing creators like Dave Sim and Wendy Pini - not to mention the Turtles guys, and later on, Bone - were highly respected in the industry. They were seen as legitimate, professional cartoonists, won Eisner and Kirby awards, etc.
In contrast, although there are now some self-publishing prose writers making a living from their work (and yay for that), respectability and legitimacy still come from being published by a “professional” publishing house. Even writers who self-publish are seem as more respectable if they’ve also been published “professionally.”
Doing a zine is not prohibitively expensive. But publishing a book on paper, or a monthly comic on paper, in sufficient quantities to get Diamond to carry you and to distribute to comic book stores, can be extremely expensive, especially if you work in color. Things like POD and Kickstarter are changing that, but these are relatively new developments.
He’s just mad because he can’t acquire all the apple juice that I’m acquiring. (x)
That would be a better world.
ps Anyone recognize the show tune that Shoulder Angel is quoting?
I love the drawing of Matt! Spot-on!
Also, of COURSE I recognize the tune SA is singing. What adult doesn’t have all the songs from “Follies” memorized?
The point in the relationship where you ask “Do you watch Arrested Development?” is the most important point
Used the mermaid prompt on sketch dailies as an excuse to do a nice thing of one of my manatee mermaids. And a manatee! X3 Mixed media on toned grey paper!
Wodgy wodgy manatee! Eee!

Maybe poke more at Blossoms in Winter?

- Free Speech and the Private Sphere
I’ve been thinking about the concept of “free speech” as applied to private criticism. This has come up most...
