If It Weren't for Keenspace ...

It's been ten years since viewtopic.php?f=4&t=78582 and I felt it could be a little inspiring to remember what this community has been able to provide its members over the years. There's no reason the community can't continue to unite and stimulate, so long as it has active members. I encourage you to do your part, as to revitalize Keenspace in a positive and meaningful way.

If it weren't for keenspace/comic genesis I might have never been able to get into my trade. It helped me to push my drawing skills past my limits as well as being a way to communicate in english, something I do not do on a daily basis at work nor at home.

In what ways did CG NOT change my life? CG helped me to become more confident and outgoing, and being exposed to many of the cool things people were doing drove me to be more ambitious with my own projects. If I had never been to CG I'm sure my novel would never exist, for example, and of all the things I've done that's probably the one I'm most proud of. Also, I met the person I love here, which was also a pretty big deal.

Looking back on the thread VT linked, I really feel like we were a part of something great, and I'm thankful I got to be here for it. I can't believe it's been 10 years. I still remember most of the people there even after not hearing from them all this time. I hope all the rest of the gang have also moved on to do great things, or at least wasted the last 10 years in a really awesome way.

This might come across as bragging ... but whatever.

If it weren't for CG, I wouldn't have started my blog. And I showed my blog to a publisher, and they hired me to manage one of their e-zines.

I can't say that I got the job entirely because of my blog, as I brought up other publications I've worked on since I joined CG ... but it probably helped.

The best part is that spending eight hours a day doing this is making me become a much better editor and writer. When I write for my blog now, I feel like I'm on brain-steroids compared to how I was even just a few months ago. I think part of it, though, is that I just feel so much better now that I'm out of my boring, soul-crushing, dead-end job. I'm no longer feeling burdened and weighed down by all the negativity I associated with it.

It's still kind of hard to work on my blog since I'm tired and exhausted by the end of the day ... but I'm feeling better now than I have in a long time.

Ten years ago I responded to that thread with

"Without CG i wouldn't be making as many people laugh and wouldn't be laughing as much because of a lot of people. I've discovered so many great people through CG and many friends I hope to keep for a very long time."

Still holds true.

If it weren't for Keenspace, I probably wouldn't have the career I have today, and I probably wouldn't have ever looked outside the boundaries of my little Texas town to realize how ignorant and stupid I was as a 15 year old.

It's good to see you guys again.

If it weren't for Keenspace . . .

If not for Keenspace, I almost certainly would not have gone to the Toronto Comic Arts Festival about ten years ago.
If I didn't go to that festival, I may not have had enough Relationship Points with the woman who is now my wife for her to become my wife.

So, in a way, it's thanks to Keenspace that I'm married, and it will be Keenspace's fault if my wife and I ever figure out a away to successfully breed.

That's right, Keenspace! If there are ever mini-VileTerrors running around the world, you only have yourself to blame.

Was this the same festival where you wore a black mask and suit completely disguising your identity? :eyebrow:

You wouldn't be alone. Cortland, the Kolters and other former Spacers now have their own families. Where does the time go?

Way to be really insulting, Fading Aura. Your intent?

The former portion of your post is rather hurtful, Aura. Yes, I did wear my black outfit (as I have at many occasions), but it did no disguise my identity. It is an identity. Not perfectly ideal, certainly, but most definitely superior to the weakness of some paarticular flesh.

As to the latter point; can any of those individuals attribute their families' creation to Keenspace itself? Did they meet their prospective partners through Keenspace? Did Keenspace play a part in forging the bond which lead to spawning offspring?

Rhys here. Not me. My wife and I tied the knot, literal and figurative, AND had our boys before I started making comics. But in the intervening years, I have gotten to work with My Mrs. AND with each of my boys on my comics.

My current main hoe is the friend of a CGer (TeamMayhem). He didn't introduce us, but did give a full-hearted endorsement prior to our first date.

I distinctly remember Water Boy and Kitty Kay Black's baby.

It would be oddly apt in my twisted little world if you ended up having a Keen-baby, Toxic, if only for that drawing I have vague memory of you doing for the old KeenBabies art thing we did like ten years ago.
