Future

Blog: Future

So this week I’ve mostly just been trying to keep up with reviews, and pitches and short films. I’ve also been trying to adapt something to submit to Oni Press who have only semi-recently thrown open their doors to open submissions. They seem to be big proponents of sequential art that doesn’t alienate different races or life style choices. Basically what I’m getting at is woe is me because I’m a white, straight, middle class male. In conclusion I don’t begrudge previously under represented groups finally having more options available to them, I’m just saying it leaves me in something of an awkward position. I don’t want any cast of characters I create to feel like the survivors of some sort of cull but at the same time I also don’t want to misrepresent any group that’s been on the receiving end of “misrepresentation” for an extended period of time. Maybe I could write a comic about a clan rally?

You can’t just ask someone why they’re white.
