There are two new interviews up tonight - one with Greg Dean of Real Life and one with Terrence and Isabel Marks, creator of lots of webcomics as well as the creator of the original April Fools Day Swap and Fright Night event.
We'll have a few more articles rounding out the February issue later in the week.
Greg Dean has been delighting readers with scenes from his real life for years now in the webcomic Real Life. He reflects on changes since he's started, both personally and for the webcomics world in general.

It seems like BLC has books popping up everywhere... even on TV! Viewers of the CBS hit comedy How I Met Your Mother may have even noticed Alyson Hannigan with her copy of â€œPure Ducky Goodnessâ€ in last nightâ€™s episode.

Another thread I'm cutting up and hoping to restart: what do you think about using different fonts throughout a comic - I recall of the top that Howard Tayler did this with Schlock Mercenary. It obviously can be used to help define different characters (In the case of Schlock it distinguishes the many types of aliens littered throughout the story) but it could also be used to capture emotional or other differences in the state of a single character.
Or maybe it's all too distracting?
A simple list of people of webcomics based on their contributions to the medium in 2005. And we have no doubt that we left off someone we shouldn't have. We're sorry. We'll try harder next year.
This month, many participants in the Daily Grind participated in "Draw like another grinder" week. Inspired by the occasion, Welton did a long overdue review of everybody's favorite Ironman Challenge.

Greg Dean (Real Life) will be at Kumoricon in Portland, Oregon this year. The third annual Kumoricon takes place next month from September 3-5th.
Eric Reynolds from Fantagraphics gloats over today's NY Times article on webcomics: "NY Times declares: Groth 1, Cuckooland 0". And at Websnark, Eric Burns also takes on the story from NY Times critic Sarah Boxer.
And last this is an interesting bit: Amazon has lifted the earnings cap for affiliates for almost all of its products. If you have an Amazon affiliate account this seems to mean you can make lots more money from referring folks to purchasing products at Jeff Bezos' shop.

My name is Connor Moran and I'm working with the Olympia Comics Festival, to be held on May 28th in Olympia, Washington. As a part of that, I'm trying to make contact with webcartoonists who live in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington state, and southern British Columbia). I've made contact with several (the Penny Arcade chaps, Chris Baldwin, and future Seattleite Greg Dean). I also plan on contacting the Foglio people, whose Girl Genius is newly a webcomic.) Is anyone or does anyone know of other webcartoonists who are based out of this region? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
