Let's Get Some
Posted November 6, 2018 at 12:35 am

Couple of links for ya today.

First up, I did a comic for The Nib which is a daily comics publication that features political, bio, essay, and journalistic comics. I've always kinda wanted to do political type comics, but I could never quite encapsulate an idea to a single panel. Fortunately, The Nib takes long form submissions. So I wrote a piece about my conservative aunts and my consternation at their political choices. Just in time to fuck up my Thanksgiving!

I've played League of Legends exactly once, but I follow a few of their artists on their social medias so of course I saw the K/DA "Pop/Stars" music video when it dropped. Holy shit, what a fucking banger! And now I'm sadly disappointed that LoL is not a Kpop sim game. Because fucking shit, I wanna play as a masked rapper with spray cans! If they sell that neon mask, I'ma get that shit and just wear it all day.

BODIE

Shit. I?m sorry, that came off way more harsh than I intended.

BODIE

Don?t listen to me. You guys are adults. And besides, we might have to shut it all down anyway.


KANE

The fuck?

BODIE

Frankly, business is kinda slow right now. Nothing new, right. Feast or famine is pretty much the start-up handbook.


BODIE

But our feast times haven?t been enough to sustain us through our famines. This one is particularly bad.


====

BODIE

I should have admitted this sooner, but I?m just not that great at business development.


ALLY

Hey, that?s not true. You?ve gotten us this far.


====

BODIE

Yeah, right into a hole. I?m a designer, not a marketer. It just kinda fell on me. I mean, Kane is a nightmare with clients.


====

KANE

I?m not good at small talk. Or not rolling my eyes when they ask for dumb shit.


ALLY

Don?t look at me. I went to business school for project management.


====

BODIE

I don?t know what I?m doing and I think that?s holding us back.


ALLY

Well, maybe we can throw some interns at the problem.


====

KANE

We don?t have interns.


ALLY

But we can get some!


====

ALLY

Look, we?re not at the point where we can support someone full time, but we can probably afford an intern for a short duration to help us get some business going.


Business students are always looking for interesting internships to put on their resumes, even small start-ups.

ALLY

What?s more interesting than working with a design firm with action pornstar Lance Li on their client list!

Magma Studio is a fun little web app. If you've got a browser, you've got a drawing app! Mostly. If you're using MacOS Safari, you get no tablet support. If you're using iOS Safari, you do get tablet support but no paste function. Both make me chuckle a bit. But overall, it's fun to play with. Sure, it could use some more functions in there, but I think it's a solid base app to build on. And you have draw with 30 friends at the same time! Big time art jam! Reminds me of the old oekaki days in the 90s.

So check it out. This is not sponsored, but I had fun with it and I think you will, too!
