Usually the weather is dry in sequential art- perhaps because it’s troublesome to draw characters ...

What if you want to make your readers slow down? To give your pages the pace ...

Don't Look Back in Anger, I Heard You Say

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Nov. 6, 2017



Ever heard of the “starving student” stereotype? Or is the term “starving artist” more appropriate in this situation? Six years ago, I was given the opportunity to experience life as a starving student even though I was unaware about it at the time.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN, 2017!

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Oct. 30, 2017



Six weeks ago, at the end of my article titled “Psychopomps and Death Personified”, I asked the question: Can you think of any examples of the personification of Death in a comic? How about on Drunk Duck (Yes, you can plug your own comic)?
