SYAC - Just Being Helpful by TomPreston SYAC - Just Being Helpful by TomPreston
Copyright 2013 Andrew Dobson
Read the latest “So, You’re A Cartoonist” at the following [link]

I’m always fascinated by people who think they’re trying to help you by kicking you when you’re already down.

PS: I know I’m gonna get people saying “but but but! Those sites are trying to help you with valid criticisms! Don’t be afraid of criticisms!” And I’d just like to say, I’m not. You can give me all the valid criticisms you want. But ya know, it's also ok for me to poke fun at how obsessively dedicated such a blog actually is, yeah?

PSS: I still get a lot of complaints about the lack of background details in these SYAC strips. Maybe this will help explain why there aren't more detailed backgrounds in this series (though it's pretty pathetic that I even need to explain that to some people).


EDIT: Ok seems like I need to clarify things here... NO THERE IS NO SUCH BLOG IN EXISTENCE. I MADE IT UP. IT'S A JOKE. IT'S INTENTIONALLY EXAGGERATING INTERNET OBSESSIVE BEHAVIOR FOR THE PURPOSE OF BEING FUNNY. IT IS NOT REFERENCING MY "HATERS" AND YOU ARE NOT A LONE MORAL CRUSADER FOR POINTING THIS OUT TO ANYONE. STOP HARASSING MY FANS WITH YOUR OBSESSIVE "TOMPRESTON IS LYING" RHETORIC. IT'S A COMIC ABOUT A BEAR DRAWING CARTOONS. 90% OF THE STUFF I DRAW IS MADE UP TO BEGIN WITH. GET A LIFE ALREADY AND STOP THINKING I'M SOMEHOW PERSONALLY ATTACKING YOU JUST BECAUSE A CHARACTER IN A COMIC ABOUT DEALING WITH COMIC PROBLEMS IS DEALING WITH A PROBLEM COMIC ARTISTS GO THROUGH. SERIOUSLY, DOES THIS EDIT NEED TO BE LONGER TO PREACH ABOUT HOW STUPID AND PARANOID YOU ARE FOR GOING THROUGH MY COMMENTS AND "INFORMING" MY FANS OF MY OBVIOUS LIES? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW ANNOYING IT IS FOR ME TO HAVE TO MAKE AN EDIT LIKE THIS TO POINT OUT HOW DUMB YOU LOOK? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHY THIS EDIT IS EVEN STILL GOING? NO IT'S NOT BECAUSE I'M MAD. NOW I'M JUST MAKING SHIT UP TO MAKE THE EDIT LOOK LIKE IT HAS MORE WEIGHT THAN IT ACTUALLY DOES. THIS IS NOW POINTLESS DRIVEL. HEY, YOU DON'T NEED TO POINT THAT OUT EITHER. I JUST DID IT FOR YOU. THIS EDIT IS NOW MAKING FUN OF HOW EDITS TEND TO BE LONG WINDED EXPLANATIONS ABOUT WHAT SHOULD BE AN OBVIOUS JOKE THAT YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS SOMEHOW MISINTERPRETED. ALRIGHT I'M GONNA GO NOW AND COOK SOME FOOD FOR LUNCH. GO SIT IN THE CORNER, OR BETTER YET, STOP WATCHING ME SO I DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH YOUR CRAP. CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF I DON'T REALLY WANT TO BLOCK PEOPLE IF I DON'T HAVE TO. SO STOP GIVING ME A REASON TO BLOCK YOU BY BEING IGNORANT DICKS TO MY FANS. ALRIGHT I'M GONNA GO FOR REAL THIS TIME. HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE. KUDOS ON ANYONE WHO ACTUALLY MADE IT THROUGH THIS PARAGRAPH.

Three things most people hate drawing because they say they suck at it: hands, feet, and backgrounds.
