So I Created A Web Comic – You Can Too!

So I Created A Web Comic – You Can Too!

Last year I came to the realization that I used to love to draw. I remember drawing Nintendo characters as a child. I remember growing up enamored with Disney cartoons, comics like Jeff Smith’s Bone and foreign animated films from Studio Gibli. That said, I hadn’t drawn in years. My skill level had deteriorated considerably. Still, I used to love to draw. I used to enjoy the creativity. I discovered some friends who had been…

Why Superman?

Why Superman?

Why Superman? This question has been asked to me countless times since I have been part of the comic book community. Why is Superman your favourite character? There are so many other “cooler”, “more relatable”, “more interesting” characters to choose from. Why would you like “Captain every-power”? The short answer for me is inspiration. Superman is not about punching the world’s problems away or using his heat vision to burn away the bad guys. He…

Happy Birthday, Sailor Moon!

Happy Birthday, Sailor Moon!

March 7th, 2017 marked 25 years since Sailor Moon first aired in Japan. I’m a “born again” Moonie, meaning I adore Sailor Moon and I have for about 20 years (that just made me feel ancient), however, I did go through a phase where I thought I was “too old” for it. It’s a shame really, that any of us ever believe that, but I fell for it just the same. But no more! I…

Wish You Could Be a Better Artist? Draw!

Wish You Could Be a Better Artist? Draw!

Everyone needs a hobby. For some of us creating vibrant illustrations is the hobby of choice. It’s a great creative outlet and a way to put your vivid ideas on paper. It’s a relaxing pastime that can help relieve stress and could lead to creative opportunities down the road. That said, it can be a very personal and sometimes intimidating form of expression. You may feel your work isn’t good enough or that you are…

Let’s talk about Riverdale. Fair warning *SPOILERS*

Let’s talk about Riverdale. Fair warning *SPOILERS*

But before we get to that, I just want to be clear that I was an Archie fan growing up. I was on Team Betty. I begged my mother every time we set foot in a grocery store for another Archie book. We had a pretty healthy and well-loved stack of them at home. So, I may have fangirled a little bit when the new Archie comic series was announced. I enjoyed Afterlife with Archie,…
