Bonejangles
« on: September 13, 2009, 11:03:39 pm »
Hi everyone, I have a new webcomic called Bonejangles, that has sort of a Discordian flavor to it.  You all can be the judges of that.  Here's a sample comic.  Any feedback is appreciated.



By the way, I am a big fan of the Illuminatus trilogy, so it is nice to be here on the Discordian forums!

HI and welcome.

So you fancy drawing skeletons that you make a whole webcomic?  That's pretty cool.

Where do you draw your inspiration for your drawing?

Tell us more!

Hey, they look a lot like the Mexican calaveras you see everywhere down here in San Diego. 

Such as:



Pretty cool.

Just read it, and it's enjoyable.

Like "Red Meat", or "Garfield" (meant to be a complimentary comparisson here), the brevity really assists the humor.  I'd like to see the other characters that grow out of it as you work on other ideas and beliefs.

Also like Max Cannon and Jim Davis, it does repeat visually.  Not to a degree that puts me off though. 
Thanks for bringing it around, I'll be watching for more. 
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

Hey thanks for the kind words everybody!

@ Burns and Jenne
This comic is very much influenced by Mexican Day of the Dead art.  My particular favorite is a Mexican illustrator named Posada, who pretty much invented the style.  I do like to take it out of the Mexican context, however.

@Richter
Thanks, I'm really glad you like it!  I was hoping that the cut/paste aspect wouldn't put people off.  Some are, some aren't.  So it goes. 

@Telarus
Ok, you got me, what's the pool on the roof?

There's a pool in the Principa Discussion subforum (considered "the roof" because it's the topmost forum).

It's so simple...and i mean that in a good way.  The style is great and the simplicity premise allows for a lot...nice!

I agree, Burns. This would make great material for Intermittens. I'd like to see some serial content across multiple issues.

Guy, have you run across our magazine, Intermittens, yet? http://intermittens.theinvisiblecollege.com/

Issue 8 is currently in layout, :wink: :wink.

Cool, glad I could pique your interest. Intermittens is one of our memetic vectors to get 'wide' exposure for our content.

The mag has a rotating editorship, basically each issue has it's own editor. The current issue in layout is #8 (editor:Broken AI). We usually co-ordinate via threads in the Think For Yourself, Schmuck forum. Here's a link to that thread to get you started: http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php?topic=21841.0

Ratatosk (Dr. Rat Bastard) runs the website, but we really haven't been collaborating through there recently.

So, keep bugging Broken AI and you'll probably see your stuff 'in print'.  8)
