Title: Allow myself to introduce...myself.
Post by: Tetsu Deinonychus on October 07, 2017, 08:55:49 AM
Hello, I'm glad to be here. My name is Brendan, but you can call me Tetsu here if you like. I do comics, animation, and illustration most of which can be seen at my website Studio Snowlion (http://studiosnowlion.blogspot.com/), and my books are available at  IndyPlanet (http://www.indyplanet.us/brands/studio-snowlion/) and Comixology (https://www.comixology.com/Studio-Snowlion/comics-publisher/10407-0?ref=c2VhcmNoL2luZGV4L2Rlc2t0b3Avc2xpZGVyTGlzdC90b3BSZXN1bHRzU2xpZGVy) if anyone is interested.

I've really been reading up on creator's rights issues lately, and ways that publishers have exploited creators. I've got a project I've been thinking of submitting to a publisher, and I really want to read up on all the things to watch out for and be careful about.  And, while this forum doesn't seem to be very active, it looks like as good a place as any to join in on the discussion and maybe get some valuable info and advice.

Anyway, I enjoy pretty much all genres of comics (action, slice-of-life, comedy, horror, romance, etc.), and all nationalities of comics (American, European, Japanese, etc). And, some of my favourites are The Sandman (Gaiman), TMNT, Hellboy, Bizenghast, Kimi wa Pet, True Story Swear to God, I'm My Own Mascot, Museum of Mistakes, Negima, I Luv Halloween, JTHM, and Soul to Seoul.

Some of my favourite artists and writers are Stan Sakai, Jhonen Vasquez, Neil Gaiman, CLAMP, Osamu Tezuka, Jack Kirby, Mike Mignola, Ken Akamatsu, Julia Wertz, Gene Colan, and Monkey Punch.

Again, I'm happy to be part of this forum.
