Hey are you 14 or older and an aspiring manga artist? Oi, you lot in Ashton especially! *poke poke poke*
Go to the link below, enter this competition and you might win prizes and go to a posh do at the Japanese Embassy down in London! There's plenty of time (deadline early November but I recommend getting your entry started early as it's a lot of work even just to do 6-8 pages, as I'm sure those of you who did comics at my workshops will know! )

The theme this year is "Voyages of Discovery" which sounds like a fun theme. I actually was in the winners of this competition a few years back and my entry is currently on display in a little exhibition of my comics work in the Nan Tait centre in Barrow for those of you interested and in Cumbria! Shout me up if you want any advice on making black and white comics to print specifications. I'm happy to help!

In other Cumbrian comics news, I've been talking with the guys running the Lakes International Comics Art Festival. It'll be in Kendal this October. I'll have some work featured at that, be selling some of my stuff, and also helping out in other ways! Kendal is a lovely town and I hope a bunch of you all come up to that! We can hang out and mingle or whatever! <3

I Watch Let's Read Homestuck (Still Watching It Now Actually) Really Love Your Voice Work On Kanaya! I'd Want To Audition for Let's Read Homestuck Myself! But, I wouldn't Know What Character Would Be Left For Me.

Um since you are kind of like the only person from the Colab that i can really contact, in the Homestuck Intermission, can you guys not put the dialouge, all pesterchum like, and just repeat the image of the frame, and voice over it. Really i was kind of disappointed. But this is only a suggestion.

Can you tell the Colab to finish Lets read Problem Sleuth?

I can gently encourage Tooch to get on with making more, but he's literally the only one who makes it, so I assume if he's not, he probably has a good reason.

:< well why not hire another person to read it?
darthmongoose Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2014  Professional General Artist
Er. We don't hire people. CoLab is a hobby group and currently nobody gets paid. It would be a huge douche move of us to say "Tooch you're not making this thing you make for fun fast enough so we're gonna have somebody else from the team make it instead", particularly since he voices Nannasprite, Equius and Hussie in Let's Read Homestuck, at least one or two characters in Let's Read Paranatural and participates in many of our side projects and is always on time with his lines and generally a productive member of the team. I'm sorry if you want more, but if you're desperate nobody's stopping you making a video series of Problem Sleuth for yourself.
