One of the hardest things about being from a foreign country is trying to describe all the common things that were available there to people who have never heard of it.

For example: today Vik asked me what that violet jam people in movies put on peanut butter sandwiches in Hollywood movies is. When I said it was made from grapes, he couldn't believe it.

"They make JAM out of GRAPES??? I've never heard of that! That sounds AWESOME!!"

It's the same with all the weird cereals, cookies, and candy shit we have in N. America. I mean, marshmallow peeps? What the hell is that? I made mac & cheese a couple years ago and Vik said it was the first time he'd ever had it.

Now, in Czech Republic we have some unbelievable food that HE can't believe I've never heard of. There are these huge very thin cookies with ground-up hazelnuts in them. Hazelnuts are crazy cheap here - the opposite of what I'm used to - so when I see hazelnuts freaking everywhere it's like heaven.

I'd never had Kinder Surprise before and he's never had pecan pie. I flip my shit when I see that there are lemon-flavored wafer cookies (he's never had strawberry).

It's awesome to experience new things, but frustrating when I can't share mine back.

SO! Vik and I are looking for someone to share stuff with! We share requests, pack them up, mail them, and enjoy!

Sound like fun?

Hello.
I was born in South Candyland under the rule of Queen Frosting. I was raised in a strict Necronomic household by Nigerian parents who died in a freak child-rearing accident that left me alone and homeless at the tender age of thirty-four. After traveling Asia via balloon and sniping those FUCKING MONGOLIAN FUCKERS for ice cream money I started drawing cartoons about a homosexual super villain with a debilitating spinal disease.

I'm allergic to kiwi fruit.
Interests

Viktor's cat needs a name!!! Something his teenage daughter would come up with.

Not going to get the picture in before the contest end date (surprise assessment) but I will post it when it's done as I don't like half doing things

Any idea when you will be able to finish it? I'm perfectly fine pushing the end date back (I had planned to do that from the beginning)

No idea, as I want to use my tablet and the pen is spazzing out for it, to be honest I wasn't that interested in the contest to begin with lol

Well... no, not really. I don't see anything too wrong here. It's cute and it's clear he/she just needs practice.

First of all, I only criticize people who have been published, have a strong following, or are so rich and secure that my little whine-fests aren't going to hurt them. Anything mean I say about Greg Land will have him wiping his tears with a fifty dollar bill.

All I'm really pointing out is that the professionals make mistakes, too. Drawing is tough stuff. Hell, I myself keep drawing everyone's heads too big, and if it wasn't for Photoshop's editing features all my characters would be goofy bobbleheads. The difference, I guess, is that when I (and many others) see there's a problem we have the humility to fix it and not hide behind excuses like "It's just my style!" or "I'm so cool I don't make mistakes you're just a hater".

I never, repeat, NEVER pick on someone who is just having fun or trying really hard to get better. That's not fair. If someone had taken my early work and slammed it, I might have stopped drawing altogether. Who would want to do that? What kind of a bullying fuck would I have to be to go up to someone who is really trying to find their voice and shit on their dreams from the safety of a keyboard? A real huge douchey fuck, that's for sure.

In the words of Kevin Smith:
“Remember: It costs nothing to encourage an artist, and the potential benefits are staggering. A pat on the back to an artist now could one day result in your favorite film, or the cartoon you love to get stoned watching, or the song that saves your life. Discourage an artist, you get absolutely nothing in return, ever.”

Excuse me! Quick Question: Does being a transgender or a homosexual make you know everything about it's opposites, transphobia and homophobia?
