Actually, you're right, that does seem like a Halloween activity, maybe we should try something else.

I'm with Tim. Do the cosplay for Halloween.

And I'm with Grace. If the Spotters have stopped doing the summer thing, we can just step in. It's not like Kurtz's gonna sue us, is it?

Is it?

Anyway, the second option, the one with the comics depicting traditional summer activities I also like. Specially since it would allow to put people on the beach in swimsuits anyway.
Faith is what credulity becomes when it finally achieves escape velocity from the constraints of terrestrial discourse- reasonableness, internal coherence, civility, and candor. Thus, the men who commited the atrocities of September 11 were neither cowards nor lunatics of any sort, but Men of Faith- perfect faith- and this, it must finally be acknowleged, is a terrible thing to be.

The cosplay thing sounds really fun for Halloween, I think we should save it for then (anyone want to be in charge of remembering it come October? :wink: )

so, I guess that leaves

-Summer (bikinis only)
-Summer (bikinis not mandatory)
-Some other season's clothing


Vote now!

(I'd set up a poll, but I'd like to keep this contained in one thread 'til we figure out what we're doing)

Perv!!!

Anyway, I vote for summer stuff, bikinis optional.

Summer (non-bikini-mandatory)

That makes it 3:0, so far.

The Super Summer Spectacular!

Maybe I'll have character designs for 'Midori of the West' in time to do something, otherwise I'll try to convince my co-conspiritor to do something with 'The Conventioneers'. (Both to be out in full force by Fall)

I also vote the summer bikini-optional thing. If wanted, I'll remember to post about the Halloween thing in October.

Well, might as well keep this unanimous and put another one in for the summer bikini optional option. Though a story-driven summer camp collaboration might be interesting too....

ooooh, I've always wanted to be the grand poobah of something...
If anyone doesn't want to me to organize this, speak now or forever hold your peace. Or if you want to help organize this... well, yay!

I think it's unanimous for the summer spectacular (bikinis optional). Personally, I would like to keep it fairly open; so if some people want to join together and make a summer storyline, awesome. Or if you just want to draw some pinups or ministories of your own characters, that's great as well.

what does everyone think?

In my experience, linked stories seldom work right AND on time. Specially since, it being all about the art, everyone has to have enough time to come up with a submission they're proud of. It'd be easier if we settled on something like a running gag of some sort, like maybe the same person (or dressed the same way, or doing the same thing) appearing in all the pieces.

well, I'm not saying that EVERYONE has to do a linked story, or even that there has to be a connecting factor between ANY of the submissions... Just that if two cartoonists make a little summer story together, than it could go up with all the other submissions for this event

I think that'd be splendid. Plus, I could do a summer miniseries thing with someone, that is, if anybody ever had the ludidcrous notion of wanting to collaborate with me of all people...

EDIT: @ Sloan: A pool party is a great idea! Summerish, but it could encompass all of the above, as well as short ministories! Plus, its originality would definitely attract people, and differentiate itself from Keenspot. My concurrences!

I really really like the idea of doing a pool party motif. That way if someone wants to do a one-shot, or to collaborate independently, they have something to hang their hat on.

That, and the Keenspace Pool Party would draw more attention, I think, than Keenspace Summer Event.

I'll change my vote to that. As JP said, it'd be a lot more open than the previous.
