If I could suddenly possess any one talent, it would definitely be the ability to draw. This has resulted in me following A LOT of artists and comic creators on Twitter (so I can stare at all their amazing work with awe and a little bit of jealousy). So naturally, I had to share with you some of these awesome artists because really…you need to be following them too. Continue reading “5 Artists to Follow on Twitter”
I’m a bit of an overachiever. I go through phases, especially with writing (and reading, actually) where I’ll have no motivation to write, no ideas, nothing but then out of nowhere I’ll come up with a whole bunch of ideas all at once and I decide to start working on every single one at the same time. That’s the issue I’m dealing with right now, I have about 10 posts in the draft stages, but all of them require A LOT of work and they’ve taken a lot longer to finish than I expected (did I mention I’m a bad judge of time – how long it will take me to get somewhere, or finish something).

Don’t fret, I’m going to help you with just that! Here are some common comics related terms and phrases you may come across:
I recently picked up the first trade for Brian K. Vaughan’s Paper Girls and fell in love with it, but as soon as I saw the amazing 80’s outfits I knew I had to do an Everyday Cosplay for Erin, Mac, Tiffany and KJ! Check out my Paper Girls outfit inspirations below: Continue reading “Everyday Cosplay – Paper Girls”
If you weren’t aware, Panels puts out a yearly comics reading challenge with prompts that help you read more diversely. This year I’m participating in a modified version where I combined prompts from the Panels and Book Riot Read Harder challenges and one of the prompts that I picked out from the Panels list was “Read a comic based on a book and the book it’s based on.”
That got my thinking – there are SO many great graphic novel adaptations of books and classic literature out there, and for book lovers what better way to test the waters of graphic novels and comics then by reading an adaptation of one of your favourite books? Check out these great book to graphic novel adaptations: Continue reading “Comics for Newbies: Book to Graphic Novel Adaptations”
