Open to Interpretation by TomPreston Open to Interpretation by TomPreston
This has happened to me more often than I'd care to admit.

This comic is about preventing artists from getting into online fights defending their work simply because someone didnít interpret it the way they intended it to be, and helping them accept this normality. Art is open to interpretation and dealing with the lack of control you have after you've released your work into the world is important for all artists to come to terms with. This comic is not about ignoring feedback and helpful criticisms, nor do I endorse such activities.

Also kind of a semi related/belated response to Charlieissocoollike's video: "I'm Scared" [link]

Edit: A different perspective: [link]

"Internets" has an apostrophe between the T and the S.

I don't believe that the intentions of the author of any creation are all that important. That's what art is supposed to do...it's supposed to invoke imagination and exchange of ideas between people who may have interpreted the art differently from each other. If everyone looked at a painting of a mountain, and all agreed it was a mountain with no deeper meaning to it, then what would be the point?

Good advice that many (including me) ought to follow more often.

So what you mean is that there is a secret message hidden in the background of this comic? :O
