I'll be in the Artist Room at Intervention. It looks like it'll be a good time - and best of all, focused on webcomics and other web presence. Do you have space in the Artist Room or are you going as a guest or a fan...?

Unfortunately we haven't seen Travis in awhile. People do tend to wander in and out around here with about 1 in 10 sticking around and becoming active and another 1 in 10 just using us for a momentary pimp stop and moving on never to return. It happens. But if you see Travis at Intervention tell him to come by some time. We miss him.  ;D

I'd like to see more cons, but the closest we have to us is the Calgary Comic Expo or whatever it's called.  It was my first and only con and I would like to see more.  Not sure if I would like a bigger con necessarily, but I'm willing to check them out.  I MAY be going to Emerald City in March... but who the hell knows that far in advance?
Sometimes, you have to take a step back and access the fact that you're a moron.  What?  Well you ARE.

Nice, glad to have you back.

There's censorship in webcomics?  ???

Internet Artists(comic,video,music,etc...) are the first generation of artists that truly answer to no one in terms of content.No editors,distributors or local laws to worry about.We'll discuss whether or not a set of rules needs to be in place for ourselves,or whether each artist should individually police themselves.We'll also be discussing how the artists censor themselves and what made them come to these decisions.

I try and keep it PG-13 myself, although nekothekitty.net is blocked in work as 'tasteless'.

I doubt Cockleigh would go over as PG-13 with the MPAA.  ;D
