ZINES ZINES ZINES!

The STACKS show at Light Grey Art Lab opens TONIGHT! That link there will take you to all of the necessary details.

Each artist was assigned a year to base their zine off of. Since I was given 1998, the year that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released, I opted to retell the entire game in simple imagery. The game feels so iconic to me that anyone who’s played this will likely know all of the scenes/elements that are referenced!

So this is the first 7 pages and the zine is 40 pages total! Plus anyone who attends the event will likely notice the extra bit I did with the printing of each zine.

Anyway, I’ll post more pages after the show has opened and have a great weekend (Loooooooong weekend for us Canucks! Oh yeeaaah.)

has anyone ever had those people they work with that just kinda frighten you

Clarification:

You know those type-A personalities, the stereotypical people who excel in sales jobs, entrepreneurship, etc.? The type who never come to you with a question without a tone in their voice that seems to accuse you of being below their level, less valuable than them and having done something wrong already, because merely having to ask this question is a waste of their precious time?

That’s the internet in general. One place that I think does overall well about allowing you to be happy and feel good about the things that you love is DeviantArt. Of course it’s somewhat less active than it used to be, and people make fun of dA, but I don’t know where I’d be without the community I found there to foster my growing art and talk to me about the things that gave me hope and happiness during dark times in my life. From the outside in it’s easy to look and be like “omg look at these terrible Sonic/Nintendo/sparklewolf OCs hahaha” while ignoring the fact that those are often made by people who are in the process of growing and improving.

I’m about on the same page as you about DA. When I first started out, i posted scribbles about skunks and an occasional Pokémon. I was terribly inexperienced. Yet, there were people who supported me, and thanks to them, I am where I am now. But these days people find it more fun to tease inexperienced artists and it disheartens me a bit… even if it sometimes can be hard to make out the difference between people who are genuinely inexperienced and trolls. 

I kinda stopped posting regularly on DA when I began drawing more quick doodles and adult stuff that has no place in the generally family-friendly atmosphere I try to achieve on DA. I occasionally dump a lot of the more innocent Tumblr stuff in my scraps, though. 

Yeah… I started out on DA too. I can’t just leave that place. It does seem a lot more positive than Tumblr, though. I should post more there.

I started being less active on dA when most of my art became about The Fourth and I didn’t want to spam people who had originally followed me for Paper Mario or Rareware or whatever with webcomic stuff. And now I don’t post there as often because a lot of the people I used to talk to have fallen off the radar and it saddens me. But I still go back now and then and good conversations happen.

One thing Tumblr has taught me is that being vocally positive and happy about something is a bad thing.

I say screw it, I’ll be happy about something if I want to. I can be critical and see a work’s flaws, I just decide to focus on the good parts. If you want a critic, you shouldn’t look at me.
 try to highlight the good things rather than the bad, and if you don’t like that, well, that’s nice, but please don’t hammer on my happiness.

There’s so much negativity about relatively innocent media on the internet already, so why should it be so bad that I decide not to be?
