When Mr. X. asked me to guest blog I was glad to step up. Seriously, the idea of having a huge captive audience for a week was almost irresistible. But what to write? The answer came to me at once...
For the aspiring (web)comics creator there are articles and advice aplenty on how to make comics. And yet, despite all this well-meaning information, I have often felt that something vital was lacking; something that would convey the real emotions inspired by a job thoroughly done. To correct that, I have compiled the following list. It's full-to-bursting with professional experience and the emotions those episodes stirred within my own black heart. It cannot fail, I am sure, to inspire the right-thinking, would-be comics creator on to dazzling new heights of personal achievement.
Jerry Holkins aka Tycho.

So, after missing Webcomics 101: Getting Started on Thursday, I was determined to not miss Webcomics 102 on Friday. So I showed up an hour early, and there was already a line of about thirty people! In the end, the line ended up being just as long as it was Thursday, but the volunteer running the room was much nicer on Friday, and really packed in the people well beyond room capacity, which let almost everyone in, I believe. The picture on the left was actually taken as people were still coming in and filling the standing room only gaps. As always, click on a picture for a higher res version.

Hi all! Sorry it's taken me so long to actually post something here. I've been having issues getting my internet up and running, and of course the con provides a myriad of distractions on top of that.
Comicon is almost here. Gilead and Darlene will be guest blogging for Comixpedia. Lots of panel info after the jump.

Yesterday I was drawing myself as a toon, but it wasn't me.
So I remembered some artists make fun of themselves with their own self-portrait as Akira Toriyama of dragonball, he always drew himself as a robot as a pun that he always works like a machine.
So the search for web artists started - look what I found:
