A quick tutorial on how I paint (mostly angular) shaped objects in a BG.
no matter what picture you look at you choke
We’re all born with scars. From the moment we open our eyes and look at the world we are wounded, and we all share that same mark.
if anyone wants me to explain what an ‘anticlimax’ is, i’ll show them this text post
Boys’ Night by Max Landis and AP Quatch
what the fuck this was so good
This is a really great comic, please read it.
THIS IS SO FUCKING GOOD.
I already plugged this over at my art tumblr, but seriously, if you haven’t read this, it’s amazing. It’s like 28 pages and manages more characterization and subtext and implied backstory than I can imagine cramming into a comic twice this length.
I read “Boys’ Night” about a month ago and still can’t stop thinking about it, especially the last 6 or so pages.
This is a really good read, it’s more than just a “cartoon characters swear and drink and do adult things” comic. It’s interesting seeing cartoon characters you grew up discuss a lot of problems and personal fears adults have, and it ends on a great note.
THE LAST SHOP ON THE STREET.
by Michael Dialynas
This is a short story i wrote and drew for an exhibition with the theme “Comics & Crisis” that was held in the Cervantes Institution here in Athens and curated by Lida Tsene from Comicdom Press.
I wanted to play on the desperation that small shop owners have to deal with in this horrible period we live in, not knowing how to live day to day and how to sell the stock they have.
I hope you enjoy my twisted story and this poor pet shop owner.
*No animals or mythical creatures were hurt during the making of this comic.

Amira’s bridal tiara is known as a tilla kosh (or tillya kosh), usually translated as “golden brow”. (Though the golden part would be gold leaf, never pure or semi-pure gold.) According to the Russian Museum of Ethnography, the sweeping shape of the tiara embodied the goddess Anahita (Umay) - patroness of women and fertility. More about tilla kosh can be read here.
