SYAC - unBEARable by TomPreston SYAC - unBEARable by TomPreston

Read the latest “So, You’re A Cartoonist” at the following syacartoonist.com/
Don’t forget to click the flattr button on our website to help support the comic!

It’s generally a very bad idea to make content only to drive up pageviews, especially if you do it by pushing people’s buttons. I tried it once, and it ended badly. The stress and pressure just wasn’t what I really wanted to do with my comics/art, and I regret being seduced by the promise of lots of money via lots of pageviews by intentionally trying to get people riled up.

These days I only post “controversial” content if I believe I have an opinion and voice that might benefit others by being expressed, and I don’t deliberately go out of my way to piss people off (if I can help it).

Yeah, it's always better to leave the political commentary to the people who know how to deal with immediate backlash.  :D

I've thought about doing this a lot. Coming out and doing drawings or comics that would downright piss other people off to gain notoriety. Then I decided it was better to just chill out and draw what I want than to stir up unnecessary shit for no other reason but to argue. It was one of the reasons I left Drawcast.

It's a drawing app for Apple and I just recently found out Android. It's a lot more basic than Photoshop or products like that, but it is pretty good.
