Thanks, David.

I've had some dinner and a moment to compose a final thought on this before I just let it go. The deal here is that I do and will do it cuz I want to. And I plan to be as fair as possible as an admin. But I don't plan to curb my opinions as a member of the community because I'm the admin, so I plan to say what's on my mind. I won't say anything here that I won't say to someone in person. Foremost on my mind right now is this:

I don't want accolades, I don't need kudos. I want nor ask for that. By the same token that I don't owe anyone anything, no one asked me to do this. So the playing field is level.

In short, I don't want pats on the back but, on the other hand, I don't want to be kicked in the small of it from behind either.

All I'm asking for is a bit of common respect for trying.
M

PS - David, you're on the interview list. Interested in doing one in the coming months?

Sure, Maggie.

Hopefully, by then Paper Tableaux will be cranked up again.
The highs and lows of private (and working) life have delayed me from getting to the printer with a completed book for some time. I'm determined that will change in 2005.
However, Michael Nason and myself have a contribution in Aaron's THE INK #3 and we've also put our hands up for Bernard Caleo's TANGO #6, so there will be something new to talk about.

Cheers

For what it's worth, I quite enjoyed the interview.

I haven't read enough of these to feel qualified to critique it. I wouldn't know if it's a rehash of old material but I found some stuff in there that could probably bear repeating if only for the benefit of newer folk to the scene such as myself.

I love reading strong opinion whether or not I happen to agree with it. I suppose that's why I enjoy these forums. By request, I won't throw kudos Maggie's way for doing the interview but I will for trying to keep this site a productive & happenin' thang.

It's all good.

Well if you think a 50 book print run, 12 page throw away mini-comic is in the same ball park as succeeding with international peers. Wow. You got me. POW! Right in the kisser.

Well done. Sorry what exactly was your point?

I agree with you wholeheartedly on the personal side of interviews. It is interesting, also why i mentioned previously that it would have been nice to see a more conversational tone in future interviews.
Perhaps if you actually wanted those questions answered though...it might have been better to ask this - "Where did (s)he grow up? Where did (s)he go to school? Did (s)he have a big family? Was (s)he a big comic reader as a kid? How did (s)he hook up with (x) and (y)? Why does (s)he write(/draw) comics and not draw(/write)? Does (s)he have any other artistic interests? Any current comic reading interests, artistic influences. It's all standard This-is-Your-Life/Parkinson/Liz-Hayes-flirting-with-a-celebrity stuff, but standard because interviewers have found that it makes an interesting interview. "

Instead of this - "I don't know what deodorant or cologne he uses. Is he a Colgate or a Macleans guy? Does he like to wash dishes with a cloth or a sponge? Cut his carrots into circles or sticks?"

In the first place. Just a thought.
