Looking for two new editors

We are looking for two new editors who have a second look at the dialog of the comic strips before their publication. One of the new editors should check every new page of Gaia, the other new editor should check new Sandra and Woo strips as well as new Gaia pages, but is allowed to miss an update once in a while.

An editor should be able to tell me that “will be gone” is not the correct tense in a complicated sentence. These things will be discussed in an internal forum. Of course the new editors will get credit on the About page of our website. They will also get a little gift from their Amazon.com wishlist at the end of the year as a compensation for their effort.

If you are a native English speaker who is interested in the position, you can write a comment or send an e-mail to novil@gmx.de. Considering the small amount of new dialog each week, it’s really not much work to do. But nonetheless you should be reliable.

Update (25 January 2011): I will have a closer look at all the applications I received next weekend. Don’t expect a decision before that.

Gaia – Example page

Powree has drawn the following page of Gaia as a proof of concept. It took her two full days to finish the page, so the start date and the update schedule of the comic is still in limbo.

Sandra and Woo nominated for “Best Black and White Art” at the TWCL Awards 2010

Sandra and Woo has gotten enough votes by other webcomic creators to make it to the short list for the category “Best Black and White Art” at the Wecomic List Awards 2010. The other two nominees are The Abominable Charles Christopher and Lackadaisy which is certainly the favorite for winning this category this year.

Farewell – Commission by Powree

Powree has finished the commission from the digital art auction mentioned on Sandra and Woo in December. And it turned out as one of her best drawings yet (click on the image for a larger version):


I also want to give kudos to the commissioner Newenglander for requesting such an interesting piece. Here is Powree’s description:

The pictured character, Janus, was the wolf who found and cared for the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus. A temple was then built by the twins to commemorate their bond. However, the place is now in ruins after one of the twins’ death, and thus Janus sets out to seek revenge

Cloudy with a chance of copy protection

Cloudy with a chance of meatballsDon’t get the headline of this blog post wrong. The part about the copy protection is not about Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, but about the DVD of I am Legend. I could not watch the movie either on my computer or on my PlayStation 2. THANK YOU WARNER BROS. PICTURES FOR TREATING YOUR PAYING CUSTOMERS LIKE CRIMINAL SCUM!

So I watched Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs instead which was recommended by Tom Sidell of Gunnerkrigg Court in his Twitter feed some time ago. And I can only join in his praise. It’s a wonderfully original movie with a unique and very colorful style. The story is about a young scientist who invents a machine to produce food out of water. But the story eventually becomes much more exciting than one thinks at the start. If you’re into animated movies, you should really not miss it!
