Why is all of your personal information (age, name, gender, etc) hidden?
-I don’t want my personal information public. It’s not that I’m trying to keep it super-secret to be mysterious; I really don’t mind telling people privately once I get to know them. I just don’t want it publicly available for personal reasons.Will you be my friend?
-Like, out of the blue? Randomly? Is that how friendships work?Why do you randomly put tea emoticons in comments and replies?
-Can’t you draw anything else but dogs?
-That’s strange. I’m pretty sure my gallery also contained lots of deer, rabbits, and other animals like boar, cats, and various creatures. I know I draw a lot of dogs, because I like drawing dogs. But I can draw other things too. What do you use to draw?
-A pencil. I color with a very old version of photoshop and a mouse.You don’t use a tablet?
-No. Why do you think everything looks like a bizarre-o painting? Mouse doesn’t give much attention to detail.Do you watch anime?
-No. I’m lying. Of course I do. Not as much as I used to but I still try to keep up. Ask me about the crazy nonsense I’ve seen so far. Do you have certain artists that you really like?
-Probably. But I don’t want DA-Notice spamming their inbox with some random person talking about themselves like a narcissist. That’d be rude.Are you really asexual?
-Yes. In fact I may even be a potato. (Spoiler: I’m not a potato.)Will we see more of Speakeasy?
-Maybe random artwork here and there, but her story is done. Although I still get comments asking questions about the comic from time to time. It was an OCT entry, and that OCT is over and I lost anyway
.Are you going to be in or host any more OCTs?
-No. Will you be a judge in my OCT?
-You really, really
do not want that.I’d like to talk to you more.
-I love talking! Will you review my story and give me feedback?
-Sorry, but I don’t touch literature anymore these days. For a lot of reasons. First, it is way too time intensive. Reading a comic doesn’t take much time, but a story? I have a full time job and my work comes home with me. I just don’t have time for it. And then even if I did, I have been bitten one too many times by bad experiences. Either people getting upset, completely ignoring whatever feedback I gave, trying to validate why they did something ridiculous and arguing that I “just don’t get it”, and so forth and so on. And generally they gave up on the story anyway. It’s not worth my time. It was ultimately a wasted effort. The funny thing is part of my job requires me to review a lot of writing. I get paid to do that though so I don’t mind. Will you review my comic?
-Are you absolutely sure you want me to do that? I totally will (barring a few of the massive long-runners) but I don’t think you’re going to like the results. Let’s be honest, a lot of people expected praise and “wow this was amazing”, and that’s not what they got. I’m very harsh. There’s no off-switch for it though and I’m sorry. Why are you so mean in your critiques? A good reviewer is supposed to give praise.
-I will totally agree that a good reviewer is supposed to give praise. I probably should. But I’m going to be straight-forward honest with you. Just because a person can draw nice art, does not mean they can tell a story. And I don’t care all that much about art in a comic, I want the story. And a lot of the stories I’ve seen…there’s not much I could honestly say in a positive manner. I’m sorry. Are there any animal comics you actually like?
- >> Um....Will you art trade with me?
-Maybe! Send me a note and I’ll see if I have time. Please don’t feel bad if I say no though.Will you draw me something?
-Um, no? I don’t do requests…Can I commission you?
-Yes! I would very much enjoy that.Can I point commission you?
-I do 50 point sketch commissions.Will you do an art collab with me?
-Possibly. Send me a note.
