Over a decade ago, I started to put some small snippets of text online; later I learned that this kind of activity is called “having a blog”, and so I installed a blog software (that is, Serendipity) and called this blog “Skizzen” (“Sketches”), to emphasize the essayist, improvised nature of these snippets. I now feel the need for an English sister or daughter site: this here is my first entry (except some test runs I later deleted) of my new Sketches blog.
There are a few things complicated enough such that I can only express them using my native tongue (since I’m not that fluent trying to cobble together words from Albion), but on the other side, there are some technical subjects for which the restriction to an exclusively German speaking audience doesn’t make much sense.
But the main reason I started this new international branch is my brand new webcomic Interferences. I want a platform to be able to provide my own comments for this comic, and this blog also serves as a convenient way to allow visitors (if there’ll be any visitors) to leave their own comments (on an Interferences comic page, just click on the map icon and follow the link labeled “comment” to be conducted to the appropriate blog page), and finally, I intend to use it as a way to announce new installments of the comic (since I expect updates to be irregular and infrequent), so if you want to be informed whenever something new happens here, just subscribe to the blog feed. And if you want to leave a comment for anything from the very first page to the last page of Chapter 4, leave your comment as a comment to this blog entry.
I really like Interferences. The graphics are wonderful, of course, and the humour works well. The fact you're not writing in your native language adds to the impression of a retold myth, but there are just a couple of places where the usage jars a little: on page 42, "can't burden us with" should be "can't burden ourselves with"; also on page 59, I think it was an archery competition that Arjuna won.
