About

1. Asinine Axioms?
Yessiree. Asinine Axioms is a webcomic about growing up and learning to cope with life.

2. How often do you update?
Unfortunately, I’m a full-time student, so I can’t update as much as I’d like to. I try to have a new comic up every Sunday afternoon… But my update schedule is at best sporatic.

3. Wait a minute! This looks suspiciously like __________’s webcomic!
I draw my influences from a variety of places. I try my best not to steal others’ artistic styles or ideas. Artistic integrity is sort of a big deal for me, but sometimes my influences are a little too evident in my artwork. If that should happen- sorry. Only human! ):

4. How do you draw all this?
I used to do all work on Asinine Axioms with a second-hand Wacom Intuos3, Adobe Photoshop CS3, and a lot of patience. Nowadays, I use india ink and paintbrushes in addition to my tablet. Strip 14 marks the beginning of my use of analog materials.

5. Can I email you?
Sure! I’ll do my very best to email you back. I check my email at least once a day, so I’ll get back to you relatively quickly.

6. So… What’s your email address? I sort of need that to email you.
asinine.axioms@gmail.com

7. Can I repost your comics on other sites?
As long as I’m given fair credit, sure!

8. Merch?
I don’t get enough regular readers to justify having a lot of merch, but I keep a store open just for my own whimsical pleasure. You can find it here.

9. Wait… Who ARE you?
Jason Young is who I am here. It may or may not be who I am elsewhere.

    Hey there!
    Just wanted to say that I read the 27 episodes (is that the correct word? episodes? correct me if I am wrong) that you got here, I thought it was hilarious!! I subscribed too! ;D I sort of draw too, but not using a computer, I am not ‘there ye’t. I also have my comic, that I like to call ‘manga’ instead, but it’s not scanned or anything.

    Keep up the good work!
    Tell me what you think about my drawings! http://hikarulychee.wordpress.com/2010/01/15/drawings/

    Greetings from Panama city, Panama!~

    • “Episodes” works as well as any other word! I prefer the word “strips” myself, but I don’t think it matters, really.
      Thank you! I’m glad you enjoy the comic. Hopefully, I’ll continue to grow and improve.
      I took a look at your WordPress. I liked what I saw! You’re a fantastic artist- much, much better than me. You have a great eye for detail and nuance. I am truly jealous of your ability!
      I used to read a lot of manga, but I haven’t lately- but I think the influence is pretty obvious on my drawings.

        “Strips” it is! :D
        I reeeaally enjoyed it! I had a lot of fun while reading it! There is something odd about Cath! I want to know what’s up with her! hehehe Question! I am not sure if you wrote this already, I guess I missed it if you did but, are any of the characters or part of the story based in real life? Just curious!
        Btw
        Did you subscribed to my blog too? Wow, I was not expecting that! I don’t get that many subscribers! Thank you so much!

        And thank you for your comments about my drawings, I really appreciate that!!! I don’t think of myself as someone really talented, but I think with time and practice I might be able to publish my manga! (it’s one of my dreams!) But you have inspired me to start a webcomic! I’m not sure about it yet, but I will give it some thought! And I did noticed the manga influence on your drawings! ^_^

      • There is indeed something odd about Cath… Wonder what it is! ;)
        I wouldn’t say that the characters are directly inspired by real people I know, but a few of them share characteristics with friends and acquaintances.
        Yup!
        Well, as dreams go, it’s a pretty great one. Hope you’ll be able to see it accomplished! And that’s seriously cool- if you have any questions about the process behind making a webcomic, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email. I’ll be more than happy to help!

        Also- if you don’t mind, can we move the conversation to email or formspring? Thanks!
