You should present your final essays like this. You should! Uh, don't do what I say. Don't EVER do what I say.

I got really good marks for doing part of a paper as a comic. Maybe the "part of" bit is important though.

Thankyou Ma'am. Learning from the trendsetters is paying off. I feel really positive about this, yeah. Fun is how studies should be. Re-energises the old productive.

Can you tell me more informations on your paper as a comic ?

the ( seeming? ) spontaneity of yr comix really = quite inspiring - how long approx does it take you to do a page? ( - if you don't mind me asking )

i also really like that yr doctor = doctor doom, obv

Thanks. It usually takes me quite a while to do a comic, and I have to submerge myself of days on end or I'll never hold discipline to finish. This was exception as I tapped into that spontaneous zen flow thing and worked quicker than i usually do. Having a script, purpose and knowledge made this about 45 mins per page.

I dont have very many novelty items at home, he Dr Doom toby jug holds my pens very economically.

What of yourself ? I'm curious. How longa da page of Flimsy ? What is the process ?

i started off abt six hrs a page and got it down to abt four - still ridiculously slow - problem not so much w/the drawings but i usta agonise over every line of dialog & change it over & over & over again ( - as if it made much difference )

currently i'm trying to take my inspiration from the seeming spontaneity of you, ralphie kidson & jeremy d ( - still a brilliant drawer, even if she won't "friend" me back...! )

My early work on Bobs may have looked as spontaneous as Ralphies seems but in fact it took me about four to five hours. Unbelievable ! It seems so shit.

Looking back on it last night though the figures appeared to have more of an iconic feel, not so quiet.

Jeremy D has become very influential on evolving my style since moving to Oxford. Once you learn to relax drawing your comics and become a complete workaholic its so fairly easy to produce good material most of the time.

As for non-friending generally, yeah that pisses me off when people don't talk about it. Perhaps I should join a livejournal group that is for friends who wont friend. I'm sure there are obvious answers, like categorisation by utility, placement for reading, lack-of-perception action/non-action, and the taming of the drawing pin.

slightly getting back into the drawing a little bit recently after five or six yrs off - it's becom really clear that "use it or lose it" = so true; you've ( i mean one has) got to do so many shite drawings before the decent ones start comin' thru

still, i'm pretty much a creature of habit, so if i can get back into the habit... (excuse me, sister bernadette)

"friending" - it was stupid of me to mention it - i've got to grow up (at 42!) & realise that not everyone wants to read a fat idiot talking abt ham sandwiches & columbo
