Dear Kate O’Neill (again),

I feel so warm and snuggly while reading…

I really love tea and I think dragons are so wonderful! Therefor, your comic is something that is easy to fall for! I love your subtle use of magic and just the easy going mood of your comic. It’s so light and dreamy. I love the characters and I feel like they are fragile and precious. Yet, their personalities are strong, honest, and resilient. I think your story is so cute and beautifully told.

I love how the moment when Greta drank tea from Erik and Hesekiel’s dragons. I really like the idea of sharing memories through tea and sharing yourself. I love how tea dragons have such a connection to their owners! AH! It’s all so lovely. I would hope to see you explore this further. To see Greta grown up. I loved how in the story she prized keeping up tradition. It did not see burdensome to her, but an honor. I like the idea of keeping up simple, beautiful traditions like making tea.

Here is my personal favorite brand of tea: https://www.zhenas.com/

I am currently drinking: https://www.zhenas.com/holiday-stackable-tea-bags.html

What are you drinking? Is your relationship with tea what inspired your comic? What kind of tea dragon would you have? I’d love to hear about it! Anyway, great work!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

Dear Jonathon Wallach,

I feel inspired to go on an adventure by…

ranger

…but it’s probably better to stay indoors.

I have some warm and fuzzy feelings about your comic because it reminds me of those days going into the woods and fighting imaginary demons (yesterday.) Ranger Pugsly’s Camp for Adventurous Youth is super fantastical and quirky! I love it so much. It’s like reading in on a super dangerous DnD campaign with kids were they all are getting lucky against these highly dangerous monsters. The humor in your work is just awesome. It’s like “of course this is how things are. Not weird at all. doo doo doo.” And Josh is just the poor scared witness to all the madness. I LOVE IT!

I think my favorite moment is when Tim went into the woods and Ranger Pugsly “helped” him get over his fear of spiders! And he had log sandals. And then we learned about Spider Ork preservation. And it was all so amazing and wonderful. And you have so many amazing details in your story! You’ve built characters and settings that are so rich and creative!!

Your art style is awesome. Your backgrounds are detailed. Your characters are on point. It’s all sparkle sparkle love love love. I love it! And I love your twitter comics too. I can really tell when webcomic artists use their experience with animation to create their work. Your comics feel very cinematic and the development of your story is super good. Good good goooooooooood.

KEEP UP THE HARD WORK AND BEING CREATIVE!!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Beka Duke,

I am so enamored with…

2017-10-07 (2).png

It’s absolutely magical. I love love love the mix of Phantom of the Opera and Frankenstien! It’s so cool and it works so well. The things I really enjoy most about your work is the costume designs and the characters. The clothes move and fit the characters so well. It’s nice to get to know characters through their style and really adds a lot of flavor to the comic! The characters themselves are nicely realized and adapted into your work. I always love seeing familiar characters in a new light. I love Christine and she is so complex/ powerful!

Your story captures the tragic and horrid atmosphere of both stories well. The blend of the two is just such a smart and interesting idea! I also love how you never give all the details and you switch between memories and the present. It just makes me want to read more and more to figure out the drama and the mystery!! I want to know your twist on things! I can’t wait to read more!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Ryan and Sage,

I’ve drank some…

Image result for love spells comic

And this one is the best I’ve ever had! Your comic is so sweet and exciting! I am really enjoying watching Esther and Maria’s interactions. I just scream “ASK HER OUT!!” over and over. Yet, it’s nice to see them just enjoying each others company and their friends being supportive but not pushy. It’s all just super sweet. I love when Maria’s friend went with her to ask Esther for more study time. Ahhhhh! too cute! 

I am so fond of magical comics and adventures! I just love seeing how different writers/ artists interpret the theme. I think the writing and the art is so awesome and you two have done an amazing job! The story is coming along nicely and I am hooked!!! I am invested in seeing what happens with Esther and Maria and also to learn more about the world! And the art makes me swoon. So many lovely colors and compliments. Everything looks well thought out and designed.

Great work and great comic. I can not wait to see more!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Keezy Young,

I love the wonderful pastel, creamy sparkle dream that is…

Your comic is really something! Your color scheme is on point first of all! All the colors make me feel happy and warm inside!! I’m really loving your cast of characters as well. You have a cast with a great balance of sweet and salty! OH! I love their outfit designs as well! Everyone is so cute and their clothes look so flowy!

Your comic has a true fairy tale type of feeling. Your color scheme and style really aids in the fantasy. Yet, it is the way you illustrate wind, and spells, and the world moving that really makes the story feel so magical! I can not read more and learn more about the characters! I can not wait to see if what they unearthed was a blessing or a curse!!! Your story is super engaging, interesting, and I am so thirsty for more!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!!

Interview w/ Aminder Dhaliwal!

I AM SO EXCITED I GOT TO INTERVIEW:

who makes the awesome comic:

Which is an amazingly hilarious feminist comic set in a world where all men are extinct. It’s great.

I love Woman World so much that I asked Aminder Dhaliwal to do a little email interview with me! And she did! Which is awesome and I am so thankful she took the time to answer my questions!

So, here is the interview:

Me: “Thank you so much for taking the time to answer some of my questions! I have been very inspired by your comic on Instagram called “Woman World” and wanted to get to know you better!

Q1: Tell me about yourself! Your background and a bit about the journey to becoming YOU.”

 

Aminder: “I went to Sheridan College (Oakville, Canada) for Animation. I knew I wanted to work in animation and the Sheridan curriculum allowed me to make a few student films. Students were also required to do internships for credits. In my senior year, Nickelodeon recruiters came to visit and advertise their production internships. I applied and after a few interviews I got the spot. I went over to Nickelodeon for the summer of 2011. I showed my student films around eventually (it was on the final day of my internship) got asked to take a storyboard test for an upcoming artist position. I flew back to Canada, took the test, sent it back and got the job. I moved out to LA in the fall of 2011 and stayed at Nickelodeon for 5ish years.  I learned so much at Nickelodeon. Nick has a great studio culture. I worked on Fairly Odd Parents, Robot and Monster, Sanjay and Craig and a new show coming out in 2018 as well as many mini projects in between. After that I moved over to Cartoon Network and have been directing on a new project for the last several months. Although I’m happy to have worked on popular shows, I’m happiest developing my own ideas and working on my own comics. “

 

Me: “Q2: What inspired you to make Woman World?”

 

Aminder:  “I still have the screenshots of the text messages when I pitched the idea to a couple friends haha. I can’t say exactly what it was, but I do remember coming up with the idea fairly shortly after the Women’s March in 2017. The march was so refreshing, exciting and supportive. Everyone (not just women) had a great time, I loved it. Soon after a couple different friends, and friends of friends posted their signs, t-shirts and banners from the march on social media, and we all  watched an instant backlash from certain types of people online. The idea for Woman World came fairly soon after, I never wanted it to be preachy or forcing any sort of message. Just a cute, tongue-in-cheek feminist comic.”

 

Me: “Q3:What is your vision for Woman World going forward?”

 

Aminder: I have a long form version. I will probably have to take a break from the Instagram version to focus on it. There are a few other things I’m trying to do with Woman World as well – but I’m afraid I can’t mention them.

 

Me: “Q4: Do you have some other projects in the works?”

 

Aminder: ” I have a couple other mini-comics, some are roughed, some are just ideas. I’ll also probably get back pitching to Children’s TV networks at some point.”

 

Me: “Q5: If given the choice, would you become an animal? If so, what animal would you become?”

 

Aminder: “A sloth, I think they’ve got things figured out pretty well.”

 

Me: “Q6: Finally, what message do you want to send to those reading to inspire them?”

 

Aminder: ” If you want to make stuff, make it. It took me a long to time to figure out what my voice is, but it would have taken longer if I didn’t make more stuff. Since putting out more comics and getting a good reception I’ve become more confident in what I’m trying to say and my own creative voice and how it differs from others.”

THANK YOU SO MUCH AMINDER!

I hope readers liked learning more about you! I sure did!!

I WANT to publish more interviews on this site. So, please let me know on twitter or email me if you have any idea as to who I might interview next!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

LOVE,

Dear Benji Nate,

I just got to write about…

Cat Boy

How could I not?! Your comic… I am literally living for it you have no idea. The moment I saw it on Vice I was like “This is me. This is my aesthetic. This is everything I could ever want!” Always ordering pizza, painting clowns, dressing cute head-to-toe, and being best friends with a cat boy?! Olive is my spirit animal and all I could aspire to be! I really enjoy reading Olive and Henry’s slice-of-life adventure! It’s great!

Aside from you drawing some amazingly cute doki doki characters, your colors just make me swoon. Those pastels and mute tones are just MWAH! So good. And I love your text placement. I think it is so fun and interesting when you take words out of comic bubbles and place them on the page to make them apart of the composition. You’ve really put together an adorable and spunky comic that I can’t get enough of!! I have pre-ordered the book with stickers! I’m about to get a “cool boy” shirt! I am just in love with this brand. In love with this comic. In love with the cat boy life-style!!!!!!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer
