New Online Gallery, with a Twist

A new online art gallery, Square One, open to all web cartoonists, has officially openned.

It's been said over and over that one of the major advantages of webcomics, as opposed to those in print, is that with webcomics, it's much easier to look back through the archives, both to review the content, and see changes/improvements in the artwork. With the click of the mouse, in most cases, you can see both the first and last strip or page of the comic.

So, why not take it a step further back. Okay, a few steps. Or, more correctly, ridiculously far back.

The idea behind Square One is to display childhood drawings by webcomics artists right next to a recently redrawn version of the same scene/person/subject (in some cases, however, the drawing is simply displayed next to their most recent drawing/comic).

I Love It

I think this is an awesome idea, I should look to see if I can find my stick people comics of grade 2.

It's fascinating to see

Maybe Every Decade?

This would be even more interesting if every creator submitted a comic draw from each decade of their life (0-10, 11-20, 21-30, etc)...Â

Neat concept. I'd love to contribute - maybe I'll pull something together after our move.

I like this idea, too. I'll have to see how far back my old sketchbooks go when I get home from the day job...

Multiplex is a weekly webcomic revolving around the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas.

Multiplex is a twice weekly humor comic about the staff of the Multiplex 10 Cinemas and the movies that play there.

That's a really fun idea.

That's a really fun idea. I sumbitted one, but was only able to go back 14 years.I'm not sure much exists before that.
