Hi everyone. Sorry, I haven't really been around for a while. But I came back and started looking at my subs, and I notice that Grind isn't hosted here anymore. Does anyone know what happened to it? It was one of my favourite comics. Is there some way we can beg Lothar to bring it back? I am sad.

A few people mentioned this already, but time is definitely the big one for me. Full-time job, and living as a bachelor so I have to do all the chores, cooking, errands myself. Feels like I have about 14 minutes a day for my comic, if that. I'm on week 3 now since my last update, and I can't make it go any faster. Unless I stop having friends, or quit my job.

I think I just want to update more frequently. It takes so long for me to draw the pages for my comic that other comics will update like 10 times and mine will update once. I would love to have an alternate source of income, be able to quit my job and just draw, so I could update every week like I did when I was unemployed.

moizmad:That's right Micah, Mo is mad! A few years ago, Yahoo erased my group and my username in one fell swoop. I was really mad, needed a new user name, so Mo is mad was perfect. Back on subject, years ago I had some cartoons published in a magazine, all they asked was "first time use" rights otherwise original art and cartoon was mine thereafter. Seemed fair enough, unfortunately no one seems interested in any second time use, sob..sob.



Aw... I would totally second time use you... I mean your comics. =D

moizmad:Seems to me a publisher would ask you to sign a waiver of sorts whereby you declare the work to be yours outright and absolve the publisher from any harm or damage if proven otherwise. Of course with a comic/cartoon, having the original artwork is a big plus, and if it came down to it, would a copycat be able to produce new material of the same quality?


Holy crap I just realized what your username means! Maureen O iz mad! haha cool. I'm gonna read some of your comics now. =)

I've had this discussion many times, since I live in a place where racism is (in my opinion) on the rise.

When it comes to murders and news coverage in the Vancouver area, I find the biggest factor for people giving a shit and police looking really hard for the murderer, is whether the victim was a pretty girl or young woman. If she's white, she gets bonus points, and if she's from the middle or upper class, she gets more bonus points. Men are not a big deal unless they had a young wife and baby or something, and I honestly don't think I've ever seen significant coverage for an ugly girl getting murdered. Basically, news is all about sensationalism, so if it doesn't play hard with people's emotions, it doesn't go on the front page and people don't care.

On a related point, I think we're all racist, and sexist, and so on...at least at a subconscious level. What separates a bigot from a non-bigot are the conscious decisions you make to overcome your primal misgivings and distrust of people who are different from the people you are used to interacting with or giving a crap about. In other words, racism is primal, and acceptance is intentional.

I'm subscribed to a lot of comics on this site, and to be honest I'm not an avid webcomic reader who scours the internet for new comics all the time, but the ones I keep coming back to are:

Nothing Fits - I love the art, and the characters, and so far the story is intriguing. I love how everything is hand-drawn and inked. And the rat people are the cutest ever.

Dar-Val - The art is well-drawn and tremendously dynamic. You can't look at this comic without wanting to read it. The characters are bold and likeable, and the action is non-stop.

The Adventures of Jonas - This comic is relatable in a human way and super well-drawn. The story comes across as an honest expression of a guy's experiences growing up, finding and losing friends, figuring out what he believes in, etc.

Grind - It just feels so unapologetically visceral, and the art style is great. People walk around in a weird sci-fi world looking for drugs, sex, and violence, but behind it all you can feel...I dunno, stuff. I like it.

That seems to be the most logical conclusion I can come to. I just wanted to see if there was anything I was missing. With bands, for instance, you have to register your name with some musician's guild so that other people can't use your band name. I was wondering if there was a similar process for comic artists.

I started drawing my skeleton comic as an exploration of my subconscious, so for me, that's the place I have to go back to whenever I start to lose my way. Sometimes I find drawing the characters over and over again tedious, like for a particular scene or action sequence. When that happens, I try to focus on each individual drawing as a separate work of art, expressing its own story and message. I imagine that one drawing as the whole world for the time I spend drawing it, and I turn on music to help me along.

Of course this is just my personal experience. Hope it helps.

Hey everyone,

I realize I am barely ever on the forums, because my life is really busy, and for that I apologize. But I have a question, and I'm not sure if this has been addressed before, but I can't find anything pertinent in a Google search.

I'm fairly serious about my comic, and I intend to publish it one day either professionally or on my own. My question is, is there some sort of organization/guild/etc that I should register my comic with? I live in Canada, and I am aware that the copyright laws (for writing) are essentially that if you can prove you wrote it, you own it. I don't know how it applies to comics though. Does anyone know more about this? or know where I can find more information?

HimitsuNotebook:I've been watching loads of movies recently! ^_^

I've watched Blue Velvet, Eraserhead, The Elephant Man (Yeah, I've been working my way through all the David Lynch films), An Education, Carrie and the Dollars Triology (Well, I didn't actually get round to watch The Good, The Bad and The Ugly)

Blue Velvet was incredibly disturbing but suspenseful and a damn good film, went up there on my favourites list quite quickly.
I didn't enjoy Eraserhead, I found it dull, slow and uncomfortable to watch. Also, while it was very strange and confusing, it was nowhere near as strange as I'd built it up to be in my head, I wasn't overwhelmed.
The Elephant Man was so sad that I cried until my eyes stung. A very well done film, but too heartbreaking to be able to watch again.
An Education was beautifully shot and had all the components for a film that I would love but the main character irked me a little too much. She reminded me of someone who used to be my best friend in all the worst ways possible. I feel like I'd enjoy the film more on repeat viewings but for now I don't think I liked it.
Carrie was really goofy for the most part. I acknowledge it was made in the 70's but some aspects of it really haven't aged very well. It was genuinely scary when it wanted to be, and had a sympathetic protagonist, but too often ventured into the realms of the goofy. Overall, it was solid.
The Dollars Triology...A Fistful of Dollars was absolutely hilarious for all it's very silly expositional dialogue and bad dubbing, but was very well shot and still really enjoyable. For A Few Dollars More was a much better made film, also very enjoyable. Never really understood why Leone chose to cast Ramon's actor as a different person in this film though...Or for that matter why they cast Lee Van Cleef as the bad guy in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly which I didn't finish because I was tired, it was really jarring...

I like movies! :D

...Sorry, I wrote a mini essay here.


I like Eraserhead. I've actually seen it several times. The Elephant Man is probably all-around the best Lynch movie I've seen, but Blue Velvet has potentially more replay value, with its likeable protagonist, despicable antagonist, love interest, and more-or-less happy ending. Mulholland Drive is a disjointed, tripped out affair, one that comes close to being a lesbian version of Eraserhead in some respects. Probably my least-favourite Lynch movie.

If you liked the Dollars movies...well the first two are actually remakes of some old Kurosawa flicks called Yojimbo and Sanjuro. If you like samurai and you don't mind watching black and white movies with subtitles, give em a whirl.

Some of the most memorable films I've watched recently have been Melancholia by the infamous Lars von Trier, La Belle Verte, and Easy Rider.

Melancholia was slower than I expected, even making allowance for the title. I liked it, mainly because it was morbid, but it doesn't feel like something I would like to watch repeatedly. La Belle Verte is a French science fiction film from the 90s. It's kind of goofy but it has a good message and likeable characters. I watched Easy Rider last year, and it has stuck in my mind ever since. I didn't know what I thought of it at first, but reflection has revealed it to be a brilliant film, probably just as pertinent now as it was back in 1969.

I personally hate Apple, as a company. Regardless of the genius behind it, it really does exemplify many of the things that are terribly wrong with our society. As a result, I don't really give a shit about Steve Jobs and I don't understand why everyone is ejaculating random words of praise and worship towards him now that he's dead.
