“Dinosaur Comics!” “Hyperbole and a Half” and “xkcd” are among the initial class of now-nationally-archived webcomics I grew up reading.
The library will announce Tuesday that the Webcomics Web Archive is officially launching at loc.gov as part of its growth in “born-digital” collections.
The first phase of the webcomics online collection will include nearly 40 titles, including such long-running works as Josh Lesnick’s “Girly” and Zach Weiner’s “Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.”

I absolutely love this idea. Get paid for your work and then move on to something else, leaving it for anyone who wants it.
Click & drag your mouse to “draw” with a given set of text. I could see this being used to make some really cool JS-based generative art.

Sweatshop, the live art show I produce with E.G. Gauger, returns today at noon PST. Join us for chat, art, videos, and music. We love you.

But before you get your panties all in a bunch, it’s pretty clear that no creative entity in their right mind gives a shit.
Sweatshop, the live art show I produce with the artist E.G. Gauger, returns this Sunday, February 27th with live art commissions, answer to questions about doing art, and the 1973 classic HORROR EXPRESS starring Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Telly Savalas. We start early (around 12pm PST), run late (midnight?!), and want you to come. Yeah, you.
Show up, chat with our filthy regulars, buy some art if you’ve got cash and the will to support the arts.
