I'm Shain, and welcome to my Tumblr, home of my redraw series The Dunning-Kruger Effect on Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds. Check the tag "DK effect" to see how much progress in drawing one can make with very little talent and a lot of work. Not very inspiring!
I write and draw 3 weekly webcomics, Georgie Girls, Behind the Blue Door and The Element of Surprise, all on my website, Mister Kitty and Friends.
I just wanted to say thank you for your coverage of the Dashcon situation. I've been working and running cons for over 30 years and I've never seen anything like this. You understand how difficult it is to get it right and that it's way too easy to get in over your head. The advice I've always given (and rarely see followed) is to start small and do the best you can. If you can do that, things will build on their own.
Not a problem! And yeah, especially with a niche con that won’t really appeal to the general public, you always need to start small and then let it grow naturally (hopefully in accordance to a growth plan outlined in advance). Like I said, it’s important to have ambition and dream big with your con - you’ve gotta have goals to strive for - but it’s even more important to be pragmatic. I think with better planning, DashCon could have had the potential to be a fun, small first-year con, but according to the personal accounts from former admins, it looks like it was doomed from the beginning.
I’m pretty sure the people responsible for DashCon need to be hunted down in the street like dogs and crucified upside down like the apes in “Beneath The Planet Of The Apes” as a warning to future generations. Quit falling for these scams, and fight back with your fists, you pansies. By the way, this is Dave on Shain’s Tumblr. I started better failed cons than this when those Dashcon losers were still in diapers.
Do you think with the success of that stupid potato salad kickstarter, there will be a surge of copy cat bullshit kickstarters cropping up soon?
This is fantastic. The hip modern version of people self-publishing their own terrible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ripoff in the hopes of striking it rich like Eastman-Laird. At least no college funds or trees are being wasted with these dumb pointless Kickstarters. And let’s face it, probably no potatoes will be either.
This probably won’t get used for the animated video I’m working on so here it is here… so close to being done with this animation I can taste it…
Mister Kitty’s Stupid Comics finally cracks open the sealed containment unit and investigates the top quadruplet dog among bad comics, the infamous story of four identical sisters whose lust for power, violence, and candy made them a household word, and whose creator spent years threatening legal action against anyone who would dare mention this comic on the internets. The clock is ticking, people!
