The news that I might one day return to the internet apparently isn't going over well.

Sent by "Schlomo G."

Can you stop being a whiney attention whore for once in your life, and quit relying on 12-15 year-old kids on a public art site to validate your existence (that's all your DA post was. Don't kid yourself thinking it was meant to be something else)? Your art hasn't gotten any better since your hiatus, and instead of trying to improve it you either sick your fans to give you attention or tell them to attack your mean bullies. Your Brental Floss strips are getting uglier each time you churn one out, and to add insult to injury, you, Brent, and Dan can't tell a joke (People on ED edit your strips to make funnier jokes. Let this sink in your head for a while). Apparently you learned nothing from your "hiatus" after seeing that DA blog, as I'm trying to figure out how each Brental strip keeps getting uglier because that's the only comic you're focusing on (you seriously can't draw a woman worth a shit, and you complained about other artists in the past? Shut up, Dobson).

Posts like that DA blog will continue to make people criticize you because it shows you're still an immature manchld. Just stop making posts like that for pity, and focus on your god damn art. Ah, who am I kidding? You're never going to learn from your mistakes, and you'll still be that complacent, mediocre artist with a horrible, immature attitude people will make fun of you for. Grow the fuck up for once, manchild.

Thanks for the e-mail, Schlomo G. I appreciate the time you took writing that to me. I love how quickly it came in response to my last journal, too. Hope you don't mind me posting your e-mail and message here, it's probably a fake anyway so no harm done, right?

Stay classy, bro.

I don't feel like some of these people read your little response to the e-mail.

I haven't been watching you long, but after reading this, I have to agree with most of the points Schlomo made. And you justified them by posting this publicly. Get a better attitude dude, you really shouldn't be acting so immature... It's not right to anyone, and it's only hurting yourself in the long run.

I really hope someday you'll listen and take criticism to heart, it'll do you well to listen for once.

Actually it's completely true. Tom, you're a cunt.

I for one don't really understand why people get so bloody upset about somebody who makes comics on the internet. He has found his niché, makes his comics, some people like it, some people don't and if you don't, he doesn't owe you anything and neither does any other artist whose work you view for free. If someone's really putting down time beyond that to nag, there's something bitter in that person that needs to be taken a look at.

Hmm just reading this. Honestly, I think you mentioned before you were happy and content with the style you have and that's, that. It has changed from the very start, but in all honesty if you just look at the Simpsons, they changed from the start then stuck with a single style on out. People can easily identify without worry however with that cartoon. I for start twitching when a comic artist just suddenly changes their style to drastically in the middle of a series unless for good reason (ex, the characters are suddenly much older ).

Anyway, we're artists, We're all whiners. We get beat up, we beat up on others, we have such low confidence 99.9% of the time that we are in shock when people actually like our work. We then strive to make more things that others will like just to try and find some place in the world, then we get whacked down, because our egos got to big. Then we start from the bottom again. It's a constant repeating cycle it seems.

There are tons of published artists who are still in shock that they wake up in the morning and remember they get to draw comics for a living. I think the fact that you're able to not only be published and consistant is really important and something I admire. I have a lot of issues keeping characters looking the same from panel to panel. I'm just starting to get the hang of it, a little bit. The fact that you can do that, regardless of what your style is, is great.

I think your little emailer just needed to glorify themselves for a little while. They probably got flamed a few to many times or something. Best to ignore it, even when it is hard to ignore those types of comments.

Im saddened to see someone wrote to you like this. theres crits and then theres being darn right rude. I hope your ok. No one should view others like that. I hope the persons shamed by their selfish actions.
Take care and keep up the great art work.
