Q: Where did you get the name ‘Hejibits?’ I would like to name my firstborn after your website but I don’t know what to tell him/her when s/he inevitably asks me why s/he has such a sweet name.
A: It’s a combination of two Internet handles I once used!
Q: Can I post your comics on another website?
A: If you must, I would appreciate it if you credit me properly, preferably by linking to the original post (not the direct image URL). Needless to say, please don’t crop out the title/credit/URL/etc. from the image.
Q: Can I translate your comics for another website?
A: As long as you link back to each original comic (see question above), and don’t claim ownership to any of the content you translate or post, it’s fine.
Q: What do you use to make your comics?
A: Adobe Flash CS3 with a Wacom Intuos5 (previously Bamboo Fun gen 1) tablet. If you aren’t familiar with any art-related programs, I’d suggest avoiding Flash and beginning with Photoshop (expensive) or SAI (cheap). Flash is also riddled with bugs, which don’t ever get fixed since Adobe seems to be straying away from Flash as an art/animation tool in favor of a worthless, dying web/mobile development platform
Q: I’m tired of dumb faces! When will you make comics with actual substance?
Q: Why do you hate <Nintendo, Halo, etc.> so much?
A: I don’t.
Q: Why did you make comics about your (’10 and ’12) roommates? Do you hate them?
A (’10): I don’t hate him; he’s a really nice guy but has an less-than-favorable sense of humor/social interaction. These situations provided fodder for comics, and so I made them. I mostly limited the comics to things he did in public, in an effort to not breach his privacy.
A (’12): uhuh
Q: I have so much money, but I don’t know what to do with all of it! Your advice?
A: There is a PayPal ‘Donate’ button on the right sidebar, with which you are free to surrender as much money as you wish! You don’t even need a PayPal account to donate! You can ALSO buy my T-SHIRTS!
