FLEEN has an interview with Rich Stevens on his recent announcement that he'll stop production of the newspaper version of Diesel Sweeties later this year. Stevens has been maintaining both the web version and a second newspaper version since striking a syndication deal with United Features. Stevens notes that Diesel Sweeties appeared in about 50 papers at its height, but that "My website and merch were a little over 90% of my gross income last year."

It was moderated by FLEEN's Gary Tyrrell (who I finally got to meet in person at last year's SPX) and really had a strong mix of panelists: Rich Stevens (Diesel Sweeties) who is probably one of the best examples of the do-it-yourself creator; Robert Khoo (Director of Business Development for Penny Arcade) who runs one of the few webcomics big enough to support a corporate workforce; plus two really corporate guys: Richard Brunning (Senior VP and Creative Director for DC) and Jeremy Ross (Director of New Product Development for Tokyopop).

The recent discussion at Fleen on the topic of offline and online cartooning has provoked some contemplation about what paradigm the next generation of cartoonists will have regarding their approach to comics and the potential influence comic-oriented community service projects like the Create a Comic Project (CCP) can have.

A moment of silence for the passing of a great writer and visionary: Arthur C. Clarke. I can still remember picking up books from him and Ray Bradbury at a very young age (7?) and while not completely understanding everything I read, being overwhelmed by the sense of imagination, and of possibility. I think my favorite Clarke novel was/is Rendezvous With Rama in part because it was a great fit for me when I read it (middle school I recall) but also for the sweep of it.
