For God's sake burn it down

I am away for a week a month from now, so I'm going to run a step by step breakdown of how I make the comic rather than actual comics. Is that the sort of thing people might like? If it sounds boring or niche I'll do something else. I'll try to write some fun words to go with it, you know the kind of deal by now!

I realise that this might in some way destroy the mystique of computer-made Illustrator comics, but if I can get some kid to stop sniffing glue and make a comic about a wisecrackin' hog living in a wooded glade, we all win. Right? Right.

I might be a geek, but I've always thought that learning = fun.

I'd be all up in that, er, shizzle. Yo.

Just think how much emptier our lives would be if that kid never found his inner hog.

you don't even have to do it for the kids. I know I'm interested in your process, I'm sure other people are too.

Preach, oh enlightened one, and amaze us with your enlightened words...and vectors!

I'm actually really looking forward to it.

Ooh, nice. I bought a copy of that Webcomics book wot yoo is talking in, and the walkthrough in that was extremely interesting!

Go for it! I'd love to see how you put your comic together. ^_^

Sounds amazing, I've been hooked with the comics's style and would love to see how you put it together.

I would enjoy seeing how you put together both the SGR comics and your hand-drawn style. Especially with your method of coloring for the hand-drawn.

I was going to say what beth said, but instead I'll say:

99.9% of librarians (minus some in Kansas) say: Go forth and learn!

Therefore, John Allison, go forth and instruct, so that we may learn, per the instructions of the librarians, who know all!

I would love to learn how to draw comics using Illustrator.
