Cricket

Thu, 08/02/2012 - 17:09 by Ananth in response to spacey cat

Cricket does this thing where she kind of spaces out and gazes into the distance and well, we have some ideas about that:

Oh dear. Yuko also did this comic left-handed! I think with each passing comic I forget more and more easily. Good job Yuko!

A couple of things I wanted to mention:

That's all for us. Catch you next week!

Master of Mushi

Comment by Kou (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 17:39

Obviously she is a Mushishi in training XD /mangareference <--a really good manga though and I think you guys might enjoy if you haven't already read it...?

Mushishi

Comment by Leons Movie Reviews (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 01:35

Mushishi is my favorite Anime/Manga besides Haibane Renmei and my first thought, when i see the creatures.

Cats often sense something, people cant, like noises.

Left handed comics

Comment by Brendan (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 17:47

I think Yuko's left-handed style only helps, especially with these last two comics and their subjects. Forgot it was done with the left hand until I read the description, it adds a spooky vibe.

I concur with this wholly,

Comment by shadowrider (not verified) Sun, 08/05/2012 - 19:03

I concur with this wholly, it definitely adds a touch and special feel to it.
Hope that the Dr.s appt. goes well and that something that works/helps can be found. Not that I wouldn't mind seeing a few more, but having a bad left wrist myself, know that it's not a very pleasant thing to have to deal with.
Also, that last panel would make an awesome shirt print, so cute and a bit spooky all bundled into one.

Man, all your cats are

Comment by foodcookies (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 18:21

Man, all your cats are haunted. Maybe you should invest in some cat-exorcism? Then again, it's probable that all cats are haunted by default.

How long does it take for a left-handed comic vs. a right-handed comic?

Yuko left-handed is better

Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 18:24

Yuko left-handed is better than me drawing with my main-hand :(

This was my first thought. :(

Left handed

Comment by Gilder (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 18:41

Yuko's left handed drawing gets smoother and smoother. Reminds me of Frank Frazetta, after having a stroke and finding his right hand would twitch he switched to his left hand and after a while found his artwork (especially in pencil) flowed more smoothly after a while.

You're awesome Yuko!

Wow!

Comment by Army-Of-Bears (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 19:25

These are actually pretty impressive for your left hand. Nice work! (as usual)

Left-handed?!

Comment by rufi (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 21:15

A little shaky, but really good anyway! After a while you're going to grow ambidextrous as a result. So glad you accepted such a challenge 'cause that's TOO COOL!! :D

Yuko could totally make

Comment by Joe (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 21:34

Yuko could totally make Left-Handed Comics a thing, if it wasn't one already.

Good job Yuko! I've suffered

Comment by Kuragari (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 22:02

Good job Yuko! I've suffered with wrist pain in my right pain since I was 16 so I know how you feel. Stupid ganglian cyst suucks. Glad you're able to adapt!

replacing "can't sleep clown will eat me" with something scarier

Comment by Alain (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 22:06

Left hand comics are scary comics! I'm afraid I, might have nightmares with lampreycat or millicat or eyecat now.

Cat Demon Shirt?

Comment by Bigred (not verified) Thu, 08/02/2012 - 22:36

I love that last panel. T would love to see a shirt of it, or at least a shirt with all those cat demons on it.

Also, since yesterday's comment section was messed up (or at least it was for me?) - *SPITS OUT WATER* TESSA STONE? HINABN TESSA STONE?

I mean...I'm super happy that she's still making stuff, and is alive and okay! But...wow! I'm just surprised. Dang.

Tessa Stone

Comment by Pippin4242 (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 02:59

What Dart said - I'm glad you've got this new gig and all, sounds like fun. But Tessa Stone is. Um. Maybe not necessarily a very constructive person to work with? I mean, there's every chance you know, and you've spoken to her, in which case just good luck to you, but she's bailed on all four of her comics in the past, including one which she was under contract for, and had presold a lot of signed books for. She never even bothered to sign them, and she really dropped 4DE in the shit. I loved her work, but she sounds very difficult to work with.

Cyriakitty?

Comment by yankonapc (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 05:10

Are you and Yuko familiar with the animations of Cyriak? I couldn't help but note a similarity between this and his "Welcome to Kitty City" video. I'm enjoying your foray into the gauche!

The flying eye cat reminds me of Stephen King's "From a Buick 8".

I'm sure they knew

Comment by Moda (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 09:41

@Pippin4242:
Ehhh, I figure they knew what they were getting into when they teamed up with Tessa Stone. I mean, her exploits are a bit infamous. There's no way they could team up with her without somehow hearing about all that past stuff from somebody. I figure they had a good long talk about it and decided to go with her anyway.

Though frankly, the way her actions fucked up 4DE's reputation wrongly and fucked over paying customers definitely makes me feel distaste about anything she does...can't get excited over anything she does now.

Also yes, this comic reminded me of Mushishi haha

Comment by Synonymous (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 10:41

Yuko's next challenge, after perfecting the art of left-hand drawing, is to draw with BOTH HANDS.

SIMULTANEOUSLY.

Wonderful!

Comment by Stephanie (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 11:13

Took me a moment and it was the monsters who gave it away that this was a left handed work. :) So glad it's working out so quickly.

Left-handed cats

Comment by Scott Bieser (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 14:38

Our cat (an Abyssinian mix) doesn't do the spacey-look thing, but at about 11:30pm each night she looks up and starts meowing at nothing we can discern. We suspect she's reporting to cat-headquarters the way Mork reported to Orson.

Or, maybe (!) she's reporting to Cricket!

Also, damn fine left-handed work there, Yuko. I'd be afraid to even try.

Since she is living with

Comment by Jim (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 15:30

Since she is living with two, of course she would be seeing alien dicks everywhere.

Uuuh! :D

Comment by Myv (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 16:18

I love the mushishi referance... ;) And the squiggly comics... <3

Comment by Omnithea (not verified) Fri, 08/03/2012 - 17:27

Get in the habit of just drawing with your left hand. When you need your right hand, truly need it, you can take off the glyph inscribed wrist brace that keeps it in check. It can be a signal to your enemies that you're about to get serious.

Left-hand comics

Comment by Jason (not verified) Sat, 08/04/2012 - 10:48

Left-hand comics tend to be more sinister, I can't help but notice. Please pardon the pun.

Toothless!

Comment by Tabby (not verified) Sat, 08/04/2012 - 11:14

The cat with the large amount of legs looks like toothless from how to train your dragon!

squiggly left hand comics + mushishi = yes

I'm loving these comics, even if your art isn't perfect. :3 I'm surprised you can do so well with squiggly lines!

Mixed feelings

Comment by André (not verified) Mon, 08/06/2012 - 10:29

I'm getting mixed feelings from this left-hand series. I'm at the same loving it, feeling bad for Yuko's pain and feeling like a monster for celebrating so hard when the Benign Kingdom U$110.000,00 Push Goal was reached on Kickstarter, meaning Yuko will have to draw instead of resting her hand...

I'm also kinda expecting that she'll draw the print with her left hand...

So, yeah, lot of contradctory and deep feelings here. I'm such a deep person.

That takes some skillz.

Comment by yraelis (not verified) Tue, 08/07/2012 - 14:29

Anath's shirt looks like its SPARKLING.

Also, I kind of wish mushi actually looked like Yuko's cat mushi. :( the comics definitely creep me out, while these ones are kind of... Adorable. (when they fly, do they make chirping cat noises....?)

Comment by Ross Campbell (not verified) Tue, 08/21/2012 - 16:05

wow, i am super impressed with Yuko's left-handed artwork!! it's as good as her regular stuff, just different. i should practice with my left hand, it'll look like garbage.

for some reason the comment form on the previous post doesn't work so congrats on the BUZZ announcement!! can't wait to see that.

Tessa Stone!

Holy Jesus! (I'm adding this here because it won't let me on the actual page) You guys are collaborating with Tessa Stone!?! I love her work, I'm just sad that she never updated 'Hanna Is Not A Boys Name' again after February. Oh well, this is gonna be sweet regardless. And nice Homestuck comment anon bro (or sis).
