what to you think about sites like encyclopedia dramatica and 4chan?
Freedom gives also freedom for stupid people, the internet can be a scary place and 4chan and ED are the reality of what can go wrong when some people have too much freedom.
ED on one hand can create some funny moments and has the right of free speech on its side and I defend it, but the price is too high and a lot gets sacrificed for the ‘lulz’. The main victim is the credibility and respect to the term ‘free speech’.
Well that's neat. I've only been to Berlin and Dresden and that was only for a few days. Lovely cities btw. How would you say that Germans are? From what I saw it was sort of half-super serious, half-easy going and fun-loving but again, only was there for a few days.
Like all countries in the world we have every sort of human being here. And like all countries we have the ‘image’ the world likes to keep on us. The world thinks we are super-serious workaholics, but we have all sorts of individuals.
If I may be so bold to ask, what part of Germany do you come from?
Little correction. Was born in Ireland. But moved very quick to Berlin. So 99,98% of my lifetime I was living in Berlin. And since my parents were both germans on paper, I am german. They were visiting my grandmother during the easter time.
I just listened to your interview on the Artaku podcast and I have a whole other level of respect for your work now. Your stories of overcoming so many obstacles to make incredible art is truly inspiring! It really makes me appreciate the opportunities I have living in the US. Good luck with your comics (:
Hey thanks man! It might sounded harder than like it really was. I made it look like a bad time, it wasn’t bad, but living in Berlin during the wall time and getting imports was very hard. After the wall opened, the market was flooded with american stuff and there a lot good stuff was lost or edited to the extreme, like many animes got butchered by the americans and then thrown on the german market.
There is still a slight hope for me to make it to america, but people think its easy. No its not.
Have fun watching my art and I hope I won’t dissapoint!
A least favorite characters list? Sounds interesting, but I'm a little wary about how the Internet might react to your opinions. You know how people reacted to your Sonic caricatures. If your unfavorites list coincides with somebody's favorites list, you could get flamed to the moon and back! Of course, I don't mean to discourage you from doing this project though. In fact I'm actually pleased that you're willing to express your opinions so openly. I just hope you know what you're getting into.
Like recieving rage comments from pityful nerds with no life? They will totally damage my view of the fans and make me stop, because their emotions touch me deep inside…
