Dear Rose Bousamra,

I felt STAR STRUCK reading…

Image result for gutless tapas

(because your comic’s setting is “the Realm of the Seven Stars. Ahem. Anyways.) I am so excited to read more and more of your comic! I am so impatient and I want to know what happens next! I like the relationship that Milo and Tesla have (for the most part.) When she wanted a friend, she found one in this wooden knight. I am anxious to learn  how Milo turns into their current form! I’m not sure how I totally feel about their friendship though, because Tesla seems to have no problem asking Milo to partake in “bad” things. Like, killing a one-eyed deer and capturing Ophie. And what’s up with that giant cat?! Hmm. I guess you’ll show us eventually.

I always like to see classic fantasy characters, but with a twist. You’ve made “the princess” a witch, “the knight” a magical wooden doll, and “the mermaid”…well we don’t know all her secrets yet. All your characters are unique, diverse, and well designed! Even the background characters have so much style and amazing outfits! You’ve created your own unique realm! Even if the realm has a “predictable” name, I don’t expect the adventures that happen there to be predictable! I can’t wait to see more! And if this is one realm, are there others?! Oh man, I wanna know!

Oh, and by the way your drawing style is unique and whimsical! Your use of color is amazing. It’s so beautiful. And I don’t know you as a person, but I assume you are unique, beautiful, and whimsical as well!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

Dear Readers,

I am in so much love love with…

 

YOU!!

 

It has been hard to post because so many awesome things have been happening with YOU!

I am so inspired by the awesome comic community and recently began branching out, talking to more and more people, and collaborating on awesome ideas.

I have been working on getting more stuff in my etsy, coming up/ following through with comic ideas, and going to/ planning going to conventions!!

I’m slowly inching towards a webcomic future! Not just a super-fan, but now a confident creator!! Some of my stuff is on my site now!!

I finished Sewer Cats and made it into a comic for Inktober! That was a great project and I super enjoyed it! Sewer Cats is an idea I held onto for too long! Glad to get it out there. Crazy cats trying to get a nice shiny can from an old, wise cat! Cute story and I had so much fun making it!

I recently went to NOCAZ fest in New Orleans and it was amazing. I had so many great conversations with artist. This younger artist even shared their portfolio with me and told me all about their ideas and we talked for so long. It was great. It was so different being behind the table. Let me tell you if you have always pined to be behind that table DO IT. You’re an artist and you’re real, so do it. I’m glad I waited and had merch I was proud of and had confidence to be there BUT I could have totally pushed myself sooner. But it is important to be proud of what you’re selling first too I guess.

ANYWAYS!

I am planning a couple new love letters and hope to get some added to the pile. Start off the new year right or something.

Get the shoebox from under the bed and feel free to read through some old love letter’s I’ve done! or at least check out my big comic list! Tons of awesome tiles.

If you LIKE updates like this, you can always comment and let me know. If you DON’T like it, do the same. Let me know if you’d be interested in an emailed newsletter!!

If you are curious what I do with most of my time:

there you go!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!!

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,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Kristina Stipetic,

I really love…

Your comic is super cool and unique and I am so excited to write you this letter oh my goodness good golly gosh!!! First of all: I love how complex, emotional, confusing, and interesting your comic is. I really enjoy reading each chapter and seeing how the main character interacts with the different robot communities. To see how different these robots are “not efficient” is really cool. Your comic really nicely touches on how complex and diverse oppression can be. How a group can oppress and feed off one or how a system can oppress a population. There is so much emotion and thought that is reflected in your work. I enjoy reading it because it really makes you think about your own feelings about oppression and society. Who am I oppressing? Are my relationships healthy? How can I be the most efficient?

I like how the main character is the outside robot who comes in and inspires/ enacts change. I am excited to find out what their overall purpose is and if they are really doing a good thing destroying the social structure of the groups they visit. And why did they suddenly get a tail?! I love their design and really all your character designs! Your robots and the landscapes feel really organic and natural. Your characters do have robotic characteristics and mannerisms, but they look like organisms that have evolved and always lived in their environments? I am interested in learning more about their origins.

I also want to comment on your color schemes, because they are on point. I love the muted tones and you just make really smart color choices that look great. Your style is very practiced and refined. It is clear that you’ve taken time to perfect your craft and have developed your own language of drawing things.

I could go on and on. I just really love your work and am excited to read more.

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer

Dear Kevin Budnik,

I really appreciate you sharing your life through twitter and comics like…

Your auto-bio comics  have been really some great work! One of the first things I do when getting on twitter is look for your comic updates. The things you go through and stuff you write about is very personal and I really appreciate it. Thank you for sharing your life through comics. It gives me something to relate to on some level.

Your stylistic choices really set the tone of your series. Your colors are muted, and your characters sketchy. It really feels like you are pulling these stories right from you head. Which, whether intentional or not, is pretty cool.

Putting your life out there, working on comics, and showing the sad times… it makes me feel a “this can only get better” type of feeling. If you get it down, if you draw it out, if you share it, then maybe it won’t be trapped inside and feel that bad anymore. Like, you are the protagonist and you’re going to find a “happy” end or at least find peace with everything. I hope you have found solace in at least knowing that your comics are awesome and they are worth making! If not for readers, at least for you!!

Keep up the hard work and being creative!

Love,

The Webcomic Whisperer
