So very excited for smut peddler. Do you have a rough idea of when it will be out? Do you know if it will be available as a downloadable pdf or just as a hard copy?
There’s gonna be a Kickstarter with all of this information soon! I’ll definitely be tweeting and tumbling about it the moment I have more information. Your best bet right now is to follow Spike Trotman on Twitter because she’s heading the whole project and she’ll be the direct source for any information and updates for Smut Peddler’s progress!
Girls in my comics don’t wear earrings or paint their nails… because I don’t do those things. It’s something I realized recently and it’s not a bad thing, but I know some girls DO wear earrings and paint their nails, but I just never take that into consideration because *I* don’t do those things. Like, Claire is totally the type to do both of those things but I always forget. Fixing this now.
Wonder why all the anonymous questions are poppin up today of all days! (Not that I mind I just didn’t do anything of interest today)
Aahh I’m sorry! I thought about making it a donation incentive but Slipshine pays wwwaayyyy better than I could make off donations, so I figured it’d be a treat for fans of both of my comic series. Slipshine is pretty much the reason I’m able to pursue comics even part-time, so I hope people subscribe!
- I took time off to finish up my Smut Peddler submission, which is a 12-page story that you wouldn’t have seen because it’s going to be put in a printed anthology that will be for sale this year.
- If you were subscribed to Slipshine you’d know I do a 10-15 page update every month, this month being no different. (I’ve updated about 30 pages since this year started).
- I am working on Love Me Nice pages when I get the chance, which of course you won’t see because if I post what I’m working on right now, bam! I have no buffer for April
So by the end of this month I will have basically drawn from start-to-finish and/or edited 20-26 comics pages. That’s almost a comic page a day. Sorry if ya gotta take my word on it or buy a book/subscription!
Thank you! I’m always nervous when doing anything higher than a pg13 sort of rating where Love Me Nice is concerned because I never want people to think that the main story is porn or get sidetracked from the meat of the story, but at the same time I don’t think sex is bad and it’s just a part of Life and I wanna play with it as a theme. So it’s a hard balance that makes me feel crazy, so I’m glad you’re enjoying it!
:O That’s the point — he’s supposed to be kinda messed up. Sorry!
You just gotta do it. No matter how bad you think it is or what problems you think you may have, if you wanna draw you gotta start RIGHT NOW and don’t stop. Stopping will only slow you down, you’ll never overcome your perceived obstacles by staring at them. Be okay with drawing some not-good comic and painting some not-good paintings — accept that it’s gonna happen. Don’t be ashamed because that’s how you learn to draw/paint GOOD, by learning from your own mistakes.
And failure doesn’t mean anything unless you give it meaning. You only fail when you give up and doing so makes you unhappy. If quiting makes you happier, it’s not failure. If persevering in spite of difficulty makes you happy, it’s not failure. But if you want to be an artist and you get scared away by fear and the potential to fail… that’s failure.
… SHIT THEY’RE ONTO ME
I can draw aaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllll the straight and gay and WHATEVER sex I wanna
I get to have all the sex… in… my…
Had a talk with my brother today. He seems to be taking it well.
I am having a hard time being a source of helpful advice to my autistic brother, and would love some advice or a different perspective.
I badly want to, but there are many factors in my personal life keeping me from focusing on it, for example at the moment being the sole bread-winner in a household of 2 and doing 2-3 jobs at a time. There’s no way to make comics the main focus of my life without killing myself. This may change after this year (edit: Or once I finally get the ball rolling on getting LMN vol 1 out or a slipshine collection), but for now I just can’t handle it.
It is a part of an anthology and there will be a Kickstarter for it. I will provide lots of details when they’re available!
I keep hoping to open commissions soon, but I still don’t see an opening yet that isn’t freetime that I need for downtime, haha. I’m really hoping I can soon though because I need to save up some money in the near future.
