Nothing kills ideas faster than a little time in front of the telly.

@Random Guy:
I respectfully disagree. Just because an idea is poorly executed, doesn't make the idea an inherently bad one. I actually think television stimulates the imagination. It just so happens, that people aren't taught how to persuade, produce, or peasant ideas without resources.

However, since people have been motivated by self interest long before Aristotle decided to jot that bit of information down a good 300 years before Christ was born. If they've had a similar ideal before, can sense the origin of a hare brained scheme, or believe that it won't make any money...etc.

They give up, Plain and simple.


Because, if they couldn't make it work then __clearly__ the genius that came up with the idea can't either. Alternatively, they may take the Steve Jobs route and decide the person making the proposal or engineering the idea isn't worthy of reaping the benefits of it. Therefore, it's best just to take that person's idea, make it your own, and boot the ideal man out before he figures out where the money's coming from. You know, so he can't afford lawyers.

Of course, there are also multitude of people who are only taught how to motivate through appeal to pity, force, authority, money, or self interest. Even If you figure out how to appeal to another person's interest without psychologically blackmailing them with some form of interest that fulfills their needs, through empathy, there's still no guarantee you'd be successful.

I'm an artist myself. MFA and all of that jazz. Those last two paragraphs are why I took minors in copyright law and business. I don't know about most people but I am able to clearly track all of my sources of inspiration,the processes that I used to get there, and all of the permutations leading up to a final product. However, I was referring directly to the story line of the comic, not what seems to have been a particularly traumatic personal experience of yours in the world of creative employment.

@Random Guy:

Since I've never actually been paid for my artwork by commission or otherwise outside of reciprocal channels, I can't argue that I've ever had a particularly traumatic work experience where I've had my ideals borrowed by someone else. At least not noticeably enough for me to take issue with it.

I have a sibling that likes to play games and forgets where ideas, inspirational or otherwise come from. Quite honestly, I don't care if she claims it as her own as long as she isn't denigrating it.

As irrelevant as my artwork is considered by others, I want a record that that I contributed something beneficial to this world. I want documented evidence of my progress, that can't be taken away from me or stolen.

I had an experience once where I was walking my dog and he got loose. I chased him down and went back to retrieve my notebook and some asshole was reading my journal. He told me I was a good writer based on a letter I was writing to my father. But, he more or less stole the notebook from me anyway.

While I am somewhat of a horder I'm not as much of a materialist as you think. I want to be a producer of film and publishing some day. So, for me, it makes sense to understand the fundamentals of copyright laws so that I don't have to deal with people like "Orville Guttenstein" of Johnny Quest fame.

Furthermore, I still refuse to believe that spending time infront of a tool that shares ideas, leads to the death of original ideas. Because, without formalism and generic cuteness there would be no standards to break, improve upon, or modify. And, the prevailing belief is that once standards die they don't come back.

The trick, which I'm still trying to master, and Hollywood has yet to pick up on is an expression of true creative genius that is simple enough for a general audience to fathom, express, and discuss, without holding others in contempt for not getting it.

Alternatively, I want make a high brow blockbuster that achieves instant classic or cult status that only seems to get better and better with repeat viewing.

I'm just loving this comic more and more and more.
It's just so quirky and charming with a lovely art style and I LOVE the characters you've created in it!
