Q: You’re starting a webcomic?
A: Uh, yes. Hence the title of this thread.
Q: We always knew you were a sarcastic mother hubbard but… you can DRAW?
A: I can doodle and cartoon my ass off. This does not always mean I can actually draw consistently, or to the standards of professional syndicated cartoonists, caricaturists or illustrators, though. But I figure I’m better artist than HALF the webcartoonists out there, and a better writer than two-thirds: everything else is a matter of effort, equipment and degree. I’m okay now, but I’ll get better.
Q: What’s your webcomic about?
A: Contrary to expectations, it will not be a funny racial diatribe about my observations of African-American assimilation in 21st century America. That’s probably another strip. This one is a more pop-sensibility and all-ages oriented. It’s called “Season’s Greetings.” It’s about an old woodcarver named Nicholas who lives in a magic castle in the North Pole with a bunch of elves and special creatures making wooden toys.
Q: Oh! So “Season’s Greetings” is about Santa Claus?
A: It’s about an old woodcarver named Nicholas who lives in a magic castle in the North Pole with a bunch of elves and special creatures making wooden toys. How’d you get “Santa” out of that? :dubious:
Where can we see it?
Here, at Photobucket. By the way, props to Amazon Floozy Goddess for tipping me to this website when she posted those Doper anagram caricatures back when.
Don’t you have your own website?
Not yet. Can’t afford it. Maybe someday. If anyone has any free hosting ideas for webcomics, I’m all ears. I’m waiting for a slot at whatever Keenspot is now, but I haven’t heard back from them yet re: my application. I’m afraid of being on a site with 8,000 other webcartoonists will get me lost in the shuffle.
Who’s "Uncle Moe?"
The name I’m known by off-board by my nephew and niece. I rashly promised my sister when she had her first child that I’d use that name if I started writing/drawing children’s books… this is me secretly keeping that promise.
I have other things I’d like to say, but I’ll wait until I read some responses.
