Best of The Blog (1st August – 30th August 2014)

2014 Artwork Best of the blog 31st August

Well, it’s the end of the month and this means that it’s time for another “Best of The Blog” post. I should also point out that, for various reasons, this monthly feature will probably be changing into a “top ten” list from September onwards – but I’ll probably explain more at the end of next month.

For people who are new to this blog, these posts are a collection of links to all of the articles about art, comics and writing (excluding reviews and daily art posts) that I’ve posted here over the past month.

All in all, this month has gone pretty well – although I seem to have drifted towards writing more art-based/ general creativity-based articles than writing-based articles.

This might be because I’m making lots of art and writing pretty much no fiction whatsoever these days, but I don’t know how long this will last because although I have more recent art experience, I have more intellectual knowledge about writing fiction (and storytelling in general).

Anyway, here are this month’s articles:
