Today I was just tumblering as usual, and stumbled upon your Meaty Yogurt comic strip, I figured hey I'm just gonna read this little comic, realized it was a super long story, got totally absorbed by it and read for about an hour and a half. I can't really explain why I liked it so much, but it's like home and childhood with a dab of punk, kitsch and dreaminess, or something, I just, uh, ok, bye.
I’m so glad people are enjoying this comic! I want to work on it even more. Thank you! <3
please let me know, you’re not rude or annoying and I actually do give a fuck and I will correct my mistake, thank you
For real. Most of my mistakes come from reblogging things from my phone when I’m really sleepy. Or sometimes, I make the erroneous assumption that the person who posted it on tumblr is the one who made it. (After all, that’s what I do with my work.) So give me a little heads up when this happens.
This project: Gamings Feminist Illuminati offers up to a 5X through teespring, if that's any help! They initially only had through a 2X but were able to get extended sizes. the creator was on twitter talking about but I can't put links in here!
This isn’t the way I do my t-shirts, but it’s good info for others who might want to go that route!
I’m trying to do less print-on-demand stuff. The artists’ cut tends to be miniscule while the costs for buyers is high, and this is something I’m trying to make a living at. Also it’s usually CMYK process printing rather than true screenprinting (where each color is its own screen), which is another thing I’m trying to move away from. But it works well for many other types of projects!
Hey there, huge fan here. I just saw your t-shirts and got excited, but then I saw that they only go up to 2xl like most non plus size clothing stores. Is there a way around that for us (much) bigger girls?
I haven’t been able to find a screenprinter who I can afford that goes higher than that, otherwise I totally would. The ones I can afford either don’t offer them, or charge significantly more for those sizes to the point that I can’t afford them anymore. I really wish this wasn’t the case.
If anyone has some recommendations for screenprinters who might work, I’ll take your suggestions.
Virginity only matters if you’re lighting the black flame candle to summon witches.
Actually, When people talk about “blood of a virgin”, what’s actually meant is “virgin blood”, aka blood that’s never before been used in a ritual.
Therefore, virginity doesn’t matter for anything.
*noises of comprehension and frustration that I didn’t make that connection before*
not to mention that virgin in the wiccan/pagan sense literally just means “young, unmarried woman,” especially one with a realized individual sexual identity. I reblogged another post about the terminology and its corruption mostly through the pervasiveness of the Bible and the use of “virgin” to stand in for the hebrew “alma” which also just means “young, unmarried woman.”
This is what inspired my story in Smut Peddler. Not this post directly, but the black candle witch virgin thing.
I recently discovered your art (I can't even remember how!) and I am adoring everything I lay my eyes on. AND I just found out the Super Happy Funtime group is coming to Indy (eeeep! yay!) and since I've never been to a burlesque show, I figure this is the most perfect excuse ever. [fangirling intensifies]
The place where we’re playing, the White Rabbit Cabaret, has a lot of burlesque events all the time, like several a month. I’ve met some of the local performers, and they’re amazing and talented. I’ll be happy to pop your burlesque cherry, and I hope you like it enough to keep going to shows that the locals put on.
Mostly for my own benefit, but in case you’re curious, here’s what’s on my plate for the next few weeks:
Finish inking 12 remaining pages of YU+ME
Color 21 pages of YU+ME
Letter 22 pages of YU+ME
Design 2 book covers for YU+ME omnibuses
Finish misc bonus content for YU+ME
Sketch ink and color 4 pages of Meaty Yogurt
Sketch ink color and paint 10 pages of Eat Me
Finish editing second draft of short prose story for a project
And that’s not counting any burlesque stuff because I don’t know how much new stuff I need to learn for May yet. Also, I still work at the cheese shop a couple days a week.
So if I’m quiet, that’s why. If you feel like helping me, send me occasional reminders to eat and sleep. Otherwise I will forget and die.
I’m glad I love what I do.
I’m getting a lot done these days. I was way ahead of schedule, but then I got sick and had to rest for a few days, which puts me only slightly ahead of schedule now.
And now I know what I’ll be doing for the burlesque tour in May, so I can start work on that costume, but it’s going to be very easy to accomplish. And with the sun happening outside sometimes, I feel very energetic and motivated to take on everything.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to have an awesome song written about you by an awesome songwriter and performed by an awesome band?!?!? Well, all you gotta do is con…
Did you know, that for years now, people have bought personalized songs written about them from SHFB?!?! Well, here’s some info on our fantastic service, Buy A Song. You should Buy A Song today!!!
Fill your life with song. Fill your mind with Super Happy Funtime’s latest video.
Here are 18 songs that’ve been written for people so far. Please do me a favor and listen to “Nick Farr” because it’s my favorite. Also, buy a song from us if you have any song-needs.
Fun fact: Buy a Song is the reason I’m in this burlesque troupe.
A few years ago, after my house burned down, I found myself at a Super Happy Funtime show. They were offering this same deal, give them money, they’ll write a song about whatever you want. I had an idea. I had always wanted to turn Lesbian Pirates From Outer Space into a stage musical. I had just gotten the insurance money from the house fire, which was more money than I’d ever experienced in my life. So I summoned up my courage after the show, approached Mr. Happy Pants who was a stranger back then, and offered him several thousand dollars to compose a full show of songs for me. That was how we became friends.
Sadly, because Platinum Studios (owner of the legal rights to the story) are incompetent jerks, the musical never happened. He wrote a couple songs for me (and you can watch one be performed here), but it led me to working on other projects with the group, and eventually I became one of them. I would still love to write a musical someday, and this man is my top choice for who I’d get to compose it.
AND they just announced that for two weeks, they’re gonna offer this half off, so only $150 for a custom song, which is so cheap.
what I learnt last night: if you’re imagining a creepy thing in your room or outside and it’s coming to get you, just imagine that it met another creepy thing and they started making out, forgetting you entirely.
I had a similar problem with a bakery company before where they were commissioning me to remake their outdated as hell website, I even got a tour of their factory and loads of free bread and cakes and everyone seemed really nice and supportive at first. But then contact slowly slipped away, and by the end of it I'd done all this work for them and needed their input but they just weren't answering phone calls or emails and just ended up totally ignoring me and I have no idea why. Free cake tho.
People are the worst and it happens so frequently! The makeup company wasn’t the only one who did that to me this past summer. I had a few of these in a row and learned my lesson about getting payment up front.
I don’t mind much if a client decides they can’t afford it, or don’t like the results, or found someone they like better. But TELL ME, don’t just pull a fadeaway and refuse to respond, especially when it’s very obvious you’ve read the email. That’s immature.
I avoided talking about this for fear I’d look like a “difficult artist” who people wouldn’t want to work with, but 1: if you don’t want to work with me because I ask for simple things like fair payment and followthrough, I don’t want to work with you anyway, and 2: I have more work than ever right now so I’m not really worried about losing hypothetical and awful future clients.
I have this dilemma. I did some artwork for a makeup company last summer. The payment was money plus free makeup. I got the makeup and it was really fantastic, and I’d love to give them a shoutout… except they never followed through on the project.
I was commissioned for several different pieces. I completed one, and sent them sketches for the rest. They never responded to me. I checked my spam folder so many times. I tries contacting them through facebook and tumblr, which they were updating from daily. No response. So while they never got the final artwork and never used it for their campaign, I still did a bunch of work that they never paid me for.
But it’s really great makeup. Vibrant and colorful, and looking at the prices on their site, not too expensive. I was really excited to tell you guys about this cool makeup. But they really screwed me over. I also wanted to show off the art I did, which I thought was cool, but I don’t want them to yank the artwork and use it without paying me. I don’t trust them not to do that.
I’m not gonna name them to shame them, though, even though it would be a legit reason to call them out. Basically, the awesome makeup + bad people running the company = 0, completely neutral to me. They’re not gonna get called out by me, but they’re also gonna miss out on the ringing endorsement I would have given them. The one I really want to give out because I like this makeup.
So I think the only solution is to try other makeup until I find something I like better and dump the cool makeup from the bad clients, and repurpose the art I did into something else they can’t use.
This is one of the reasons I don’t do much in the way of commissions anymore, and why I get all the payment up front now when I do take a job.
