The Artist's Life

Friday, November 2, 2007 - 07:51 PM

There's been a lot of e-mails in the ol' inbox from artists and art-hobbyists who've been enjoying the last few strips -- especially the The Artist's Decision Tree. If you've been enjoying the last few days, then you'll want to check out previous interactions between Dante and Arthur about the artistic life:

- Handling Criticism

- Pouring Your Heart Out In Your Art

- The Artist Is A Little God

- Why Artists Don't Go To Prom

Also, quick follow-up: There's another interview with the Halfpixel guys over at Fleen, about our plans 'n projects 'n puppy-dog-wishes for the future.

Turns out the word "scritch" comes from Peanuts! Specifically, the Sept. 24, 1956 strip. Not surprising, actually. It *sounds* like a fun, Schulz-esque word, doesn't it?

When I was a Cartoonist-in-Residence up at the Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, I had great fun looking at his originals from the 50's and 60's (great years)...that's probably where my brain soaked up that word!
