it's especially great because it was like "teen hardcore porn" or something like that and yet the cat that did it is the one that i'm convinced is gay

Books come to life and eat each other.

There's a religion surrounding Jay-Z.

There's the aforementioned flying pig on a couch that was most definitely not designed for aerodynamic performance.

A character who was feeling sad about being generally disliked was cordially invited to a pity party hosted by Hell, before being rescued through a videogame portal by the orange lass who founded the Jay-Z religion, with a guest appearance by a reforming fundamentalist who was merely trying to bring the first character some Christ Crispy Treats.

Tat's high as fuck, yo.

Cats using tablets is funnier and more troublesome than cats playing with keyboards.


considering the havoc my girl manages to wreak by walking on the keyboard, i'd hate to think what she could do with a tablet.

honestly, she can start operations i didn't even know that computer _had_.

and then i can never figure out how to reverse what she's done.


One thing about tablets is they use swiping actions to control - and cats can do that just fine. No opposable thumbs are needed.

And really, just rolling around on top of a tablet can do all kinds of fun things.

Mostly the one cat just interrupts films and closes webpages while trying to interrupt me.

I'm not with my cats at the moment, so I have (unintentionally) skyped with them. The one hears my voice and tries to figure out how I got inside the speakers (according to my family) and the other can see computer strings so she came up, sat in the chair while my family had walked away to do something for a few minutes, so I wiggled a string in front of the camera on my end and watched her try to get it on the screen.

It was all fun and games until speaker-cat chewed through the microphone wire. Troubleshooting for my mother from another country is not easy. Especially as she hasn't figured out how to bring up the chat window in skype to type things out, and resorted to pen and paper instead.

Tat continues to not give a crap about haters.

Wonder if part of that's from the forum, or just from people like crayven actually sending him emails?


Actually, if he truly didn't care, he wouldn't bother answering emails or posts in this fashion.

The fact that he does and has in the past both indirectly and actually pretty directly, (as in this instance) indicates that the negative mail and comments do get under his skin, and sometimes he can't help but answer back. If he was really above it all, he wouldn't even have a self-insertion character at all, frankly.

"Sinfest" appears to be all he has in the way of product. He does it seven days a week, three hundred sixty-five days a year and plainly invests all his life experience, his dreams, fantasies, ideology and his considerable talent and superb craftsmanship into it.

He would have to be a supremely evolved soul for the negative reaction of some of his audience and readers not to get to him. I don't think he is.

The cool part is that this is actually a funny strip. In context it's a triply recursive indirect riposte - in the comic, from the pet character of his self-insertion character.

I think Darq was trying to say that there are already signs that Tat is a stoner. Razz

TragicallyUnhip, artists are capable of both doing a comic and doing comission work on the side. (Or whatever it is that professionals who have worked with Darkhorse do; artists can get hired to do all kinds of things.) Since Tat has been doing this comic for quite awhile, he's had plenty of time to work doing Sinfest into his day and then do other things. So this doesn't have to be his sole product; it's just the only thing we know that he's doing.

I recall reading that he didn't sell very many of the Sinfest books, so if he's making money off this site it's from advertising. He did some stuff for Darkhorse which ended badly, and since he doesn't write in that blog thing linked to the front page anymore, there's no telling what he's actually up to.

This interview and essay were made in 2011, and involve Tat saying he was changing things up. The interview says he just makes up the story as he goes, and that he's trying to become a stronger storyteller.

http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/comics/article/45885-tatsuya-ishida-speaks-on-sinfest-jesus-and-fans.html

And this essay he wrote talks about how he quit on a Dark Horse thing days before the deadline, and plagiarized some work because he was not good at drawing airplanes.. He decided to become a better, more honest person.

http://www.darkhorse.com/Blog/208/my-criminal-days-are-behind-me

And if you've never clicked on the "Resistance" button at the top of the Sinfest page, try going there now. He has writing there spanning 2000 to 2007. I haven't actually read all of it; I just poked through the last few posts and then opted to read it at some nebulous point in the future.
