I'm always a bit wary of sharing too much information about my life online (too late), so I immediately started to regret it when I started making a BMB page on Facebook. And because I'm a wuss, I also get paranoid that the people I draw about will somehow get offended (they probably wouldn't care). Anyway, this was what I was going through yesterday:
since you are at it, why don't you TAG the FB friends that are depicted in your drawings? that would make it a lot easier and save some guessingReplyDelete
Heeheehee found the page! It has my favourite Bonsai as well (I shall hereby refer to your comics as Bonsai)!ReplyDelete
My sister actually asked me to remove all Googleable references to her (having her name in an actual comic image file is okay) and to untag her, because she's also quite active on the webs as a blogger.
What are you going to put on it? ;)
I: There's an idea. But I actually went through FB and deleted some people I'm not really friends with anymore (including some I've mentioned here). HA! I'm always surprised at how openly you write about your friends and colleagues, which makes it really hilarious. I think I censor everything too much for anything to be funny.ReplyDelete
T: Hey, thanks for the like! :) Yeah, uploading some of the Bonsai (haha) and tagging some friends might be fun, if they don't mind. I don't know what else to put on it, though. I'll announce comic updates, but I don't really have anything else to put up there. I'm not very prolific so I don't have any "previously-unseen-stuff" like you do, so yes. Hmmm. We'll see!
Last time I uploaded stuff was in March. T_TReplyDelete
We demand updates! Well, that is, when you're less busy!ReplyDelete
so here's what happens - once people think they are always portrayed as a giraffe or a monkey, I start changing the animal I use to portray them. It can help mess up people's identification a little bit... but as long as other people can't identify them, my friends and colleagues don't seem to mind being used as my cartoon characters as much... some people like it, because it means their humor was worthy of a cartoon. on the other hand, some people probably don't like it... maybe that's why there are people unfollowing me. :-pReplyDelete
I like the way you use animals to portray different people--and it works best I think because you have these cute pigs and giraffes and turtles talking about a whole range of topics like spiritualism or anal sex or farming in Africa! I really am a huge fan of your work and I hope you keep it up (despite unfollowers...boo!)!!ReplyDelete
