Ya’ll should go out and buy the Playing With Fire graphic novel BECAUSE I LETTERED IT, you should also go tell Boom!Comics how awesome the lettering is.
Unless you hate the lettering or me or my comic, then you should just buy it to support everyone else who worked on it and tell Boom they all did a great job :V
<:3c And I toned it! It’s a real good book, y’all!!!!
That’s not a cat that is a roast turkey dinner
What's your least favorite pokemon?
Mewtwo. Only because of it’s weird ball-fingers. It’s like Mewtwo has claws but he wouldn’t stop clawing at itself and scratching its corneas so the scientists stuck tennis balls to the ends of its fingers.
But that’s about it I don’t think I have a least favorite.
I don’t think its a surprise to anyone who knows me that I won’t buy bookshelves.
I’m going to a Texas con that encourages plastic wrapping “obscene materials” so I had a go at wrapping my mock up book in cling/saran wrap and sealing it with a hair dryer.
It ain’t perfect but it does the job. It’s a bit wrinkly but it holds and I threw the book (don’t worry, like I said, a mockup) across the room and at a wall and tumbled it around and the plastic didn’t tear or budge. Though it peels off pretty easy.
This is why I was googling cling wrap earlier.
Cat if you aren’t shipping and packaging supplies get out

GGGGOD YES THAT WHATEVER IM FIERCE WOULD MAKE A GR8 STICKER

A new print is in the store!
This is something I drew literally at the last minute before my last convention to try to make something to sell, since as many people know I kiiiinnda got cheated outta having THAT ONE product to sell. But considering what it is I sorta fell in love with this and decided to put it up in my store after cleaning it up.
I might offer a larger version later after some test prints but for now, 5x7 prints (trimmed or untrimmed) are available.
I was gonna wait til later to post this but I’m finishing up super secret comic and commissions/sketch cards so I haven’t had much art to post… so… enjoy the art!!
Okay, dear anon, I’m gonna preface with this: my foot steps aren’t exactly the best to follow in, you might wanna do your own thing with my experiences in mind.
Basically, I started making my first attempt at a real comic when I was about 22, not because I had goals or ambitions — but because I figured I was a failure, I had nothing to lose, so why not just throw caution to the wind and start making a comic anyway. My childhood kinda sucked and I was raised to expect to fail for all my apparent flaws, and that came to a head when I graduated and my family couldn’t afford to send me to school and I didn’t qualify for grants or scholarships.
So at 19 I just sorta sighed, resigned myself to serving/bartending while training to be a restaurant manager for the next 6 years, and took some community college courses. But when I started my first real attempts at one of my comic ideas it was just to be like a soothing bandaid. And within 3 years comics was my job, I abandoned community college and restaurant work, and am presently achieving most the goals I never had to begin with because I assumed it was too high above what I was capable of.
So, uh. Don’t do 90% of the things I did. They will make you sad. BUT do that one thing I did — start making comics like you’ve got nothing to lose. Cuz you don’t. Get a job, try some school, and pursue comics. Just be happy you’re making comics at all in a way, pursuing comics as even a hobby is a privilege.
When babies are taking those “baby steps” they aren’t usually scared of falling, they’re usually thrilled, engrossed in the thrill of discovering locomotion, of moving forward. Just be that baby. Don’t be scared of falling, be excited you’re walking. Be excited about moving forward, just “doing” it. I basically live by the Nike slogan now. Except those Nikes are made for babies. Tiny, baby Nikes.
You shouldn't hurt people.
You’re absolutely right. And that’s why I don’t :U
