    SOW FTW!

    You going to set up a poll to go with this?

    I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

    No way man, I know better than to hide under your desk! You might not be wearing any pants.

    I'm proud to be the initial inventor of the POW acronym. From people's response I see it was hit in the good spot.

    You're gonna get 'im anyway. It's a good way to develop your visual "shorthand" skills.

    i don't like any of the suggestions...so i throw in some of my brilliant muppet mind:


    COMWEEK

    C.O.M. (Comic Of the Meek - don't ask, it is a muppets mind, and it is doing justice to the comic genre, as the one which loves to twist and turn realities)

    LINE (hey - it is the base and characteristic of comic art)

    LINE-UP (if you want to make a sophisticated shit out of it)

    COMic (pronounced "COM i see" - got the idea?)



    And now some random smilies

    After much consideration,
    I chose SAW.
    I've seen comics that was conveyed without the panels and some panels weren't exactly the norm panels...not sure it can be called a 'frame' at all...

    I would have gone with CAT but Sequential Art sounds cooler.

    I liked both P.O.W. and S.A.W. but I picked S.A.W. just because I like the word "sequential". Oooh!

    Grief...I didn't realize there were so many...ideas. Heh! XD

    The pissants have spoken and the new comic competition will henceforth be referred to as P.O.W.! I will ask Davi to set up our disgusting little pen at his convenience in the appropriate place so we can begin our first activity on Wednesday, January 2, 2008.

    We (llothcat and I, and a few others) will use the time between now and then to establish a set of guidelines that will be impossible to follow, a series of initial exercises in advance that no one will be able to do on time (to make sure we're covered for at least a few weeks til things get rolling), and all that other good stuff. We will also probably establish a sub-set of threads for comics discussion (technique, tools, maybe some tutorials, and skill development), useful links, and other such necessary evils.

    P.O.W.! will follow the style of the other challenges, with MOST of the challenges going one week each more or less, and strict rules for finish and acceptance for voting. Voting will be done by any and all members of the forum, and we will try to make special arrangements for those here who cannot read, write, count, are in a permanent coma or may be Muppets.

    This will not be a challenge for the weak of heart. We are going to push for the most professional work you can produce, on a professional schedule, using professional clocks, calendars, and linear measuring devices. The challenge will be open to ANYONE who is a member of the CA Forum, whether you have cooties from other places or not.

    Take some time to practice your skills, enjoy the holiday(s) of your choice, and just plain relax, because on January 2nd, your asses belong to me...you poor poor sniveling little sods...
