Anyone got any ideas or subjects they’d like to see in a comic? Leave a comment and I’ll give full credit in the description and link to your website or Twitter, etc.
Thanks, Lydia, for the reminder!
Would you like to donate if it meant you got a little portrait of you (or someone else) in PiP style based on a photograph or description or something, d’you think?
I’ve just been and watched Amanda Palmer’s TED talk, which was very inspiring. I’d recommend it for any artists or anyone trying to sell things, really.
I love to do things in return for donation, just because it’s so interesting to say to someone “I spent 6.5 hours on this and £6 on materials; what if anything would you like to give me?” and then see what happens. I find that in this way my hobby pays for itself, more or less. For example, hosting of this site is (mostly) paid for by advertising and donations. For some reason I don’t often knit for myself, so donations for knitted stuff covers material costs and there’s usually yarn left over for gifts. The Poly in Postcards were paid for by crowdsource, and they remain for sale for those who want to donate and get something out of it, pretty much.
But the fact remains that I’m all disabled and in a pretty rough place, financially and practically speaking, and I hope that this is temporary and will improve. I love making comics but I sometimes lack inspiration. My comic-rate is starting to rise a little as my stress levels fall some days. This is hard to articulate, but: I deserve good things, and I would like to give to you. I guess I just don’t know how.
What would you pay for?
Today I woke up with this thought in my mind for the nth time, and found out how to do it, and I figured some of you might like it too.
I really like Adblock and Adblock Plus. But I also really like Project Wonderful, and if I find out that a site I like runs ads with PW I tend to unblock ads on that page. I just saved about 5 and a half minutes of the rest of my life with this handy advice. I don’t know if I’m the only one, but if I’m not, viola:
Looks a lot like I’ve got a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome…
Now to concentrate on using that to get the disability benefits and practical support I need for a decent quality of life.
This feels like a pretty big step.
I’ve finally got around to adding a footer to this website letting people know how the comics are licensed. Check out the bottom of every page for the following handy information:
Unless otherwise mentioned in the comic blurb, all comics are licensed Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0). Click to find out in which ways you’re allowed to use them.
I occasionally get requests to use these comics in talks, presentations, wall displays, free zines, etc etc. What I usually say is it’s fine as long as you’re not using the comic for commercial purposes and you leave the website address clearly visible. This license includes these things. So, now you know and you don’t have to ask. But if you want to TOTALLY MAKE MY DAY, please feel free to leave a comment saying what you’re up to.
