Monday - September 17, 2001
Last tuesday's comic wasn't up for very long before things went to hell, and even I could barely remember what it was, so for today i've reprised that comic for those who haven't seen it yet - and also as a way to get us back into gear for the rest of the MT comics to come this week.
I really did have a lot of trouble working on the comics themselves this weekend, for some reason it was easier to free-sketch, so that's what i did. There are two new drawings over on Fredart for you to see - here we have another gameworld image of Piroko and Largo in Operative Failure, and also a character study of Kimiko, showing a hairstyle i was working on - including the post-it note that i scribbled on first.
As for the forums - they are down, and will stay down for a while. I put up a warning that both Largo and I were sick of the anti-american rhetoric that trolls were getting thier jollies out of harassing people who really were having trouble with the events last week. I said that now was not the time, have some resepect, cut the anti-american crap, or i will shut the forums down. Someone had the audacity to post a 'american is not totally without blame' rant in that very topic. I wasn't bluffing, so i closed the forums. Largo and I are in agreement that while you have the freedom to say what you want in this country, we do not have to provide the bandwidth to harass people in these difficult times. We both applogize for the inconvinience that this has caused many people, but sadly the problem was getting out of hand, and this was all we could do.
I'll be adding stuff to this rant as the day goes on, just getting back to business. I am really gonna try to have a comic done tonight, but i highly doubt i'll be able to. I have not been lazy - It has taken largo and i a long time to get back on track after last week. I know that most of you understand. For those that don't - deal with it, we are doing the best we can.
