The Art of Bettering Yourself by AK-Is-Harmless The Art of Bettering Yourself by AK-Is-Harmless
Contrary to what some might think, this comic is not belittling the artistic abilities of comic strip artists. Remember what Ben & Winslow used to look like [link] ?

I actually think comic strips are a pretty liberating artform–doodles with structure, really–and you really don’t need any prior artistic training to make a comic strip great. Which is why I find Ben’s ideas about reading books or attending classes pretty funny.

I am all about bettering your craft. Successful artists (and I mean any sort of artist here–musician, actor, writer, romance novel cover artist) are always improving themselves. The lame ones are the ones who get complacent–or worse, cocky–with their abilities. Because let’s face it: no one is ever going to be as good as me. :nod:

I joke! I joke! :laughing:

The Adventures of Anus Ninja would actually be pretty successful.

This first appeared on Defenestration [link] on Friday, April 8th.

Oh my god I laughed riotously at the fact that he tapes his pencil to the side of his head due to the fact that he has no ears because he is a minimalist cartoon. I laughed for like ten minutes. My abs hurt.

It's just the hatching I use when they're in grayscale. :)

I can see anus ninja being very educational for everyone :nod: Maybe Winslow is trying to teach us that it doesn't matter who you are, you can still be awesome :D

You can still be awesome, even if you're an anus. Or maybe especially if you're an anus. ;)
