Read today's comic.


Today's comic is encrypted in ClaWrite, a dragon alphabet invented by Baxil. The dialog is based on a conversation that I had with a classmate, but I'll leave the fun of deciphering it up to you. ;)

Unless if you'd rather just read the translation in the comments below...

Commentary that should be read after the comic, or else it'll spoil it. )

This past year, I've tended to devote more of my creative energies into making an illustrated journal, full of rants, sketches, meditations, jokes, attempts at sorting out my spirituality, and anything else about my personal life that needs to be drawn out in the form of a cartoon. That comic-journal is completely private, since I've found that if I don't censor myself and don't have to worry about how other people would see it, don't have to worry about something being too scribbly or arguable or personal, I'm getting farther with discovering my writing-voice. It just seems to work better when I can be as brashly honest as I want, as well as combining illustrations and text together instead of having them separate. It's been a marvelous exercise. When I drew this particular entry in it last morning (which was something that actually happened) I decided this one ought to be shared.

How do you feel about some (but not all) episodes of "Theri There" being a cartoon journal of a real therianthrope's life, and other interjections such as an episode with a joke about (say) Arthurian legends, rather than all the episodes having to deal directly with defining therianthropy in general? Must they all be exclusively, completely on-topic (even more so than most discussion forums about therianthropy or draconity tend to be, which tend to wander in any direction that interests the members, to such an extent that alt.fan.dragons said that nothing was off-topic for them at all)? Or can the idea of "on-topic" be broadened to include other topics that I feel are related to it? I was starting to feel like it was too limiting, even though I do have a lot of material for it, I have all these other comic ideas as well. What do you think, should they all be together in "Theri There," or should it stay strict with what's considered on-topic?

Comic for the week of August 10, 2006.


[Edit on following day] After I posted this comic, Aaarhus informed me that there's another comic that made a very similar joke to this one. The comic is by Thornwolf and was made in 2003, so it predates mine pretty well: http://us-p.vclart.net/vcl/Artists/Thornwolf/Sketches/pshift.jpg I honestly wasn't aware that anyone else had made that particular joke before, much less made it into a comic. Nice comic, Thornwolf! Sorry about the similarity of joke, it seriously was coincidental. "Great minds think alike," I guess. *blush* Thanks for kindly letting me know about that, Aaarhus.

New comic will appear on January 23rd, 2006.


Yes, it's a brand-new, fully-finished comic this time! I've been working with the time management schedules, as promised, and it's helped me work the comic into my time a bit better. I found that laying out, drawing, lettering, and inking today's comic took five hours total... not counting the preliminary sketches, and the cleanup and tinting that I did after I scanned it into the computer. Writing the script doesn't even count into the time in this instance, since it's a guest script. Thanks, Baxil!

This week's comic.


Transcript: Today’s guest comic is by Lauren. A contented dragon sleeps atop a hoard of colorfully wrapped gifts. Holiday symbols float overhead: a menorah, a Christmas tree, and a pentacle. The caption says, “Dragons like to celebrate all the holidays. Mmmm, shiny.”

Theri There page from 2005-11-14.

Notes:
Today’s comic was inspired by a certain thread in the Theri There community ( therithere.livejournal.com/2167.html?thread=25719#t25719 ) where Kyoudai mentioned having had an experience of receiving sensory feedback from a phantom limb, as shown. This could be called a rather odd way of having ESP, Extra Sensory Perception.
Kitsune are a kind of Japanese mythological creature. They’re shapeshifting fox-spirits, cunning magical tricksters. While I could have shown the kitsune in this comic as being like a real-world fox, I preferred kitsune as depicted in Hiroshige’s prints.

Transcript:
An otherkin who is a Japanese fox spirit (kitsune) browses a bookshelf. Someone tries to sneak up and surprise them, but bumps into their phantom tail. The kitsune thinks, “Hmm… it feels like someone is standing behind me!” The caption says, “Watch out for kitsune… their butts have ESP.”
