Yup, I just got this too. Luckily my suspicious nature made me ignore the user instead.

This has been bugging me for quite some time now. I’ve decided to compile (quite a long) post on the topic. This may still be edited, but… here’s this, for now.
It is a very common trend, especially among creative people, to be at a loss as to how to handle compliments. Most people deal with this by shrinking back and getting flustered when compliments are given. People will start denying the compliment(s) and start to list the negative things about themselves, and/or start to draw comparisons between themselves and people they admire to put themselves in a bad light.
I want you to pause right there and let me say: STOP THAT. It is not a healthy attitude to have. Moreover, it’s an ungratious one.
Why you should accept compliments:
I’m a mommy: my first for-sale to the public piece of sequential art. I’m going to be selling it at Free Comic Book Day here in Cape Town.
The copy I have in my hand is a proof only, but it’s the basic article: colour cover and black and white interior pages. Aside from being a little dark in some spots (due only to my SPECTACULAR lack of knowledge in basic desktop publishing) it’s come out exactly as I wanted and I’m super-proud of it.
I hadn’t teased or made any facebook hoopla about joining in FCBD as an exhibitor of panel-art because I’ve been guilty of letting projects go adrift in the past despite (or maybe because of) too much hype and indiscreet squeeing about HOW AMAZING IT”S GOING TO BE. I get my emotional kudos from interested and excited friends, then go on my way, and the project stays unrealized except in sketchbook form only.
Therefore, I am NOT going to promise this will lead to anything bigger, various sketched pages and long story outlines in the back of my mind notwithstanding. To paraphrase a piece of advice I once got on a writer’s camp: I won’t call you to say I’m drawing a book, I’ll call you to say I’ve drawn one.
For now, here you have my modest little twelve-pager. Maybe she grows into something bigger, maybe not, but for now I’m just really happy I’ve got something in my hands now that I can enjoy and share with you all!
ALL. OF. THESE. THINGS.
YOU. ARE. ALL. AMAZING.
NEVER. LIMIT. YOURSELF.
This is all of the true. I need, like, a daily reminder of how true this is.
The next tracks will be…
1. What will be written on your tomb stone
2. A description of your love life
3. The title of your autobiography
4. How you will deal with a zombie apocalypse
5. The name of your first grandchild
6. The reason your first grandchild will be expelled from school
7. How you see your best friend
8. How your friends see you
9. How you will defeat your arch enemy
10. Your super power
My Answers: (delete when reblogging)
1. Feel So Free (That’s EXACTLY what I want on my tombstone!)
2. Terminal March (ooh, that sounds grim, and a little scary for the other person involved!)
3. Durga (the… Hindu mother of the universe with a lot of extra arms, which is precisely what I think all mothers wish they had.)
4. Thunderstruck (like Thor, muthafuckas! Or possibly thunderstruck will be my reaction to a zombie apocalypse?)
5. Kalki (I approve:)
6. Twisted Streets (I’m open to interpretation?)
8. The Trooper (is has been true)
9. You get what you give.
10. Mother Africa
I’ve had this on my mind a few days now - hell, a few months now. My feelings on the topic of how artists are treated in a corporate setting have never been very far under the surface. Give me two minutes of your time and I’ll talk your ear off about my own experiences in that area and what I’ve gleaned from others’ stories. And now in the last few days, with the big VFX house Rhythm and Hues going down the same week as it won an Oscar (http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/1969o6/more_than_400_vfx_artists_protest_at_the_oscars/c8l8eg8) a big chunk of new stories has arisen, and from the last place I expected - a big studio in the US. Now a
