Feedback

I have been getting a huge amount of feedback from my readers and fans. The vast majority is very positive and keeps me going with this comic. My readership is growing week by week. I estimate that God Hates Bambi now has around 3,000 regular readers. My thanks go out to every one of you that is helping spread the word of Bambi.

But, as you well know, not all feedback can be good feedback. There has to be some negative feedback as well. I had pretty much planned on ignoring the negative comments, because focusing on them will get you nowhere. But there is something about those comments that has surprised me and I have decided to discuss them. Instead of people being upset with the offensiveness of the content, they are upset with the artwork. The more I hear these comments, the more I realize that there are a lot of people that simply don�t understand the visual metaphor that I have been attempting.

What should be obvious by now is that this comic contains nothing new. All of the arguments that I present, on all sides of all issues, are the same arguments that you hear or read about every day all over the internet. I do try to present them in a humorous or satirical manner, but it is still the same ol� same ol�. My attempt with the art work was to juxtapose the visuals with the commentary. I wanted the visuals to be as repetitious as the arguments, thus presenting the reader with a satirical view of the world in order to show the ridiculousness of the continuing debates.

For those of you that understood this all along, you are my heroes. For those of you that understand now, you are my new heroes. For those of you that still don�t get it? It�s ok, there is plenty of time. :-)

  I see

I noticed the repetitive artwork, but it didn't really bother me. It didn't occur to me that you were doing it deliberately to make a point.

I can see what you are trying to do with the juxtaposition of the artwork, and I must admit that I didn't catch the commentary. In my experience such artistic choices typically make sense only to the author and the select few that they have discussed their comic with. Even though everyone's heard the same arguments, nobody's seen everything the same way. Especially with artistic interpretation, it can be difficult to say what you want to say and have people understand.
Cheers for expressing yourself!

Good artists develop their own style. There may be thought, talent, taste, affordable or available equipment and many factors more going into this. Some people will like the style, some may even appreciate the origin story of that style. Some won't like it -that's life. I think your art style fits your content nicely and while I couldn't have analyzed it to come to the reasoning you presented I may have subconciously appreciated the thought behind it. So don't let negative comments frustrate you and keep up the good work!
