Comics

I've always wanted to do comics. And now the ridiculous printing/distribution overhead is gone.
I believe I could be a good artist. But frankly I'd need quite a bit of practice. What I could do, though, is to be creator and writer, and either hire an artist or collaborate with one. There are so many talented artists who want to work in comics. That'd be kewl.

Hmm, my mind must be broken as I immediately cast you in the role of Caroline in that 1990's sit com. (Caroline in the City - as if you'd forget Annie Spadaro).

I had never heard of it. But thanks, I'll rent it, it's about a cartoonist, and I like Lea Thompson.

It's a typical 90's NY based sit-com. This one ran a few seasons longer than Jonathan Silvermans Single Guy. At least people seem to grow up - unlike Fiends. Any hostility is normal SitCom hostility, not OTT Seinfeld level.

Annie is a ditzy dancer neighbour.

Don't have high hopes for it, it just fills a half hour comfortably.

It's one of those mid-to-late-90s sitcoms that all seem alike and blur together after a while. Not many laughs and the usual cookie-cutter characters.

Isn't that what I said.

Yeah, I remember when TV used to be there as a soporific soma now I have the internet instead.

To do comics you do not have to be a great artist. The best comics are the ones that are creative and funny with their content. Take one of my favorites for example. XKCD.com Terrible artwork.. Hilarious content!

That one is perhaps a tad too minimalistic for my own taste, but yes, your point is well taken.

No.

Yes, but you also said that it "fills a half hour comfortably." It doesn't, and should be avoided. As should most of those because they're all so alike.

Point taken. I was young and foolish back in the 90's.

Last sit com I saw and liked was Dinner Ladies.
