Um, yes... I believe I'll have the roasted bamboo and black bean pencil with the squid ink mochi pen for dessert.

How 'bout the rest of you guys?

We here see one of Dan's first daring experiments in deviating from standard webcomic art. And nothing so comparatively cautious as merely curving or irregular panels, no, in fact, he has even gone beyond Order of the Stick in minimalism -- only our mental concept images of the characters remain, nothing else. This is the sort of pioneer mentality that led Picasso and Salvador Dali to greatness, and millions of other artists to obscurity.

:shifty:

Is this a quote?


Ehm... I mean... Oh, you know what I mean.

Yes. It's a quote. I am quoting an obscure old hack.

What? :shifty:

I'm afraid I shall have to disagree. I believe it is the minimalist style which represents the fragilness of life itself, and that in and of itself. With which such great artists and poets could only bring to us....

If someone can simply paint a canvas white and call it art, than no, you haven't gone too far.

That reminds me of this Irregular Webcomic strip (it might be a little hard to understand without the context...)

Chronos: I've chewed on pencils before, but never eaten one - they don't seem very appetizing. (I also once had a non-anthro cat chew on one of my pens, leaving behind several holes in the pen.)

This series reminds me of when Sluggy Freelance did it. Can't remember if Pete Abrams did it first, but it invariably led to the Stick-Figure Fillers, which I never cared for. At least we never got the Stick-Figures here.
