The School Fishrag
So I've been making comics for the Michigan Daily for about 4 weeks now. They started off as culturally/socially relevant and now they are going down, as the French call it, "le fucking drain".
I'd like to think that I'm somewhat better than most of the other 'cartoonists' on staff, but Christ I'm not a combination of lazy and indifferent about things that are relevant to college kids.
I'm actually having fun with these though. They're challenging to make *somewhat* relevant (since that is the main criteria for the Daily), and it gets me off my lazy art ass. What I've made so far is visually and humorously garbage, but maybe repetition can fix that over time.
I joined it just to get published more for cartoonist scholarship opportunities (seeing as how I am a terrible engineer and will never be eligible for any scholarships ever), but I'm actually enjoying it now.
