not even the god of manga can escape the real reason artists fear death

bury me

with my fursona

i started laughing and then i cried but i was still laughing

thanks op

dam

everyone’s talking about the mouse like there isnt a naked woman transforming into a sexy snake right next to it

thats a sexy snake? i didnt look hard enough and thought it was a snake that swallowed sexy mouse like some straight vore shit or somethin

Nope it looks like a sexy mouse transforming into a snake with tits. 

But it’s not really all that shocking, if you’re familiar with his later work.

I’m a big fan, but it’s hardly stretching the truth to say that his published manga can go from “whoa”, to “outrageous!”, to “WHAT THE FLYING FUCK DID I JUST READ” (not even in a good way).

When you have that background information in mind, a naked woman turning into a snake with boobs (and a butt) seems… well, lightweight.

i’m pretty sure monster by mistake is already well-known on the internet, especially in the circle of tumblr with a deep appreciation for visually horrendous mid-90s/early 2000s cg animation, but what i want to know is: how does it not already have a semi-ironic and surprisingly active fandom surrounding it?

like, from the pov of someone who wouldn’t be personally interested in it, but would prefer to watch it from afar , it seems like it would be the perfect thing for internet users to be writing weird fanfiction about. there is a preteen boy and the bully who bothers him at school, ready to be turned into yaoi and greedily beta’d. there is also said twin boy’s magically powerful sister, as well as the older ghost man who just kind of secretly hangs around their attic, i think? there’s obvious transformation stuff and a weird thing about sneezing embedded in the core of the series itself. 

there’s just this massive empty chasm where the years-old monsters by mistake tag should be on ff.net. there are no hypersexual, strangely polished monster by mistake amvs on youtube. it’s reassuring to know that the universe can hold itself together with such a rich, huge chunk of internet history missing from it, but that doesn’t make the void itself any less eerie to stare into.

fin this is so many good words about this mysterious show that exists for reasons literally NO ONE can explain. who was the target audience? what is wrong with canadian children? where are all the memories of this show

So hey, funny story, the guy who “created” this show is the best animation prof I ever had and it’s entire production was a really sad frustrating story. Knowing the good intentions and upper management meddling behind it, I actually kinda get my feathers ruffled when people point to it all LOLOL CANADA WHATEVER.

The guy who pitched this show (Mark Mayerson, one of my favourite people at Sheridan) actually uses it as a cautionary tale about the risks you take when you sell your ideas to a network and cites it as the reason he stopped bothering with television. You can read the story in his own words on his blog (which is great) over here, but generally the initial driving idea behind the show was to make something that would give kids with social, mental, or physical handicaps a character to identify with. Turning into a monster was supposed to be this othering challenge for the main character and the show was intended to deal with that theme of isolation from your peers.

YTV bought the show and was immediately just like “okay but what if turning into a monster was a funny thing instead?” And he just immediately lost control of the project. Like, that is 100% the risk you take as an artist trying to sell your ideas to executives, Once you hand your ideas over “you” aren’t making a show, there’s a whole team of people designing it by committee and the best intentions can be spoiled by the worst executives trying to trendspot and figure out what kids “want” to watch no matter how much you protest. Like, The entire show just turned into this horrible goulash of things YTV businesspeople thought appealed to the demographic they were aiming at.

In his own words;

I actually have to credit Mark Mayerson as a big influence on getting me interested in web publishing, because after dealing with all of the bullshit that came with this show he was a huge proponent of building a web presence and would tell us that if we built our own brands online we would have better leverage if we did decided to try to sell our ideas to networks down the road. If you can say “this is the fanbase I already built” there’s a better idea that a) they’ll respect your ability to pull an audience and b)they’ll know they risk losing all the free fans and publicity you’re bringing them if they mess with your formula too much.

"It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.

You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything."

Procrastination Is Not Laziness | Thought Catalog

I’ve posted this before but I’m posting it again because it’s just so important and really gets at the heart of why so much advice about procrastination, much of it targeted at people who have ADHD but are just considered “lazy,” fails. Before you can tell someone to “just do it already,” you need to think about the reasons they’re NOT doing it, like all the meanings they’ve attached to vague terms like “success” and “failure.”

Oh wow.

That resonates too much.  As I sit on tumblr at 1 in the morning, avoid studying for a test I have at noon today.

All those nights in college I waited until 10am the night before it was due to start a paper…

Or all the stories I have yet to write and refresh tumblr instead

… Oh shit.

Pretty much this. This seems accurate.

Cleopatra from Asterix and Cleopatra
After a bit of nostalgia-browsing, I want to give a shout-out to my original comicbook character crush. One of the many reasons I like giving full lips to my characters.

Omg Asterix and Cleopatra is my favorite Asterix book! (And I love her entrance at the end of Asterix and Son, because I was all like ‘really, no one noticed her arriving? She only had that bigass ride and a few hundred slaves with her, but it wasn’t until she yelled that people turned their heads and noticed she was there)’ 
Confession: I had a crush on Asterix when I was young. I loved the books to death but not many people in the Philippines has heard of them :(

Man, I grew up with Asterix and TinTin; these two series have a sacred place in my heart (though some of the books written just by Uderzo aren’t really my thing, since he made it clear he has issues). 
One thing which bugged me was when we were in the states for a couple of years, and absolutely none of the other kids at school even knew who Asterix was. I was less than thrilled, haha. I also realised later that most of the kids around my age didn’t even know about him in England, or at least where I’ve lived for the past decade or so.

I am thinking of doing an anthology project (not with a kickstarter or printing it in mind) where it’d be about artists from different countries drawing a self portrait of them self and how they perceive their country/culture. It’d focus more on artists from around the world instead of someone who’s lived in the US their whole life and moved to X country and isn’t it so wacky how they have currywurst here ha ha-.

I have no idea who else would be interested, but I already got my buddy Pietro (from Brazil) and Seage (Jamaican, British, Canadian) on board so I’d love to hear if anyone else would be interested in joining in.

Reblogging, because this sounds like a fantastic idea, and I’m hoping that some of the artists who follow this tumblr will speak up if they’re interested!
