I’ve been drawing since I was about 3 years old, so thats about 33 years now, everything I draw digitally is by mouse and rarely involves storyboarding and is somewhat off the cuff. I find that seems to help things organically in terms of pacing..for whatever reason I’ve been creating content on the web for about 10 years now, I started on newgrounds back in 2006 or so and have had luck here and there with my work. I’m mostly self taught, other than a few flash animation courses I took at my community college back in 03′.
I’ve got an A.A in film production, that I haven’t used really, and have an A.A in screenwriting,a skill I use pretty regularly to varying degrees of success…Screenwriting is a hard skill to work at when you’re autistic, dyslexic, and grammar and spelling arent a strong point.
I love horror, classic movies, and anime. I grew up on them when I was younger and they’re big influences on my work. I hate mayonnaise, double standards and PC culture. In fact PC culture is why I have my own website , you cant go anywhere and not have to deal with political correctness, or SJWs, or any of that ridiculous shit and I had enough of it. It’s cost me friends, really made my perspective on the world bleak and its even stifled my creativity. Political correctness is death to creativity and it seems the only way to be creative and not deal with these lunatics is to have your own small site where, so here I am.
Political correctness to me, is a sado-masochistic mindset that says ” nothing is ever good enough, No one is ever good enough, and if anyone disagrees with me they’re a Nazi who needs to be punished”. I’m tired of this and the people who push it. They’ve ruined twitter, comics books, video games, Youtube, Google, Facebook, and worst of all, language itself.
This is why I have my own small site now, I can just do my thing here and enjoy the freedom to do so without gender quotas, racial quotas, sexuality quotas and PC police who push that shit. For examples of why I’m doing my own thing on my own site so I can have absolute freedom from this contingent here is what happens when they don’t get what they want:
They throw tantrums and harass creators in ways you’d expect a child to behave, except these are grown adults. Here is what happened when Mangaka Sui Ishida, creator of Tokyo Ghoul, lead protagonist was discovered to not be gay.
Then there is what happened to fan artist who drew a fat Steven Universe character thin.
I’m ashamed to see this behavior becoming more common in the west and this contingent thinking that its perfectly acceptable to behave like this and have the audacity to think that they somehow are in charge of other peoples works. It’s really sad to actually see this. I’m aware of the irony of needing a “Safe space” from the very people who promote that shit type of thinking, but the reality is if you want to create your own content and not have to deal with that crap, you have to have your own website. Youtube,facebook,twitter, even some free hosting webcomic sites are all pushing these shackles on content creators. Its just how it is now.
