I wasn’t able to draw at the time the Pacific Rim sequel was announced, so to compensate, I animated all the drift compatibles dancing horribly in celebration of the upcOMING ANIMATED SERIES 8V

Stolen Sharpie Revolution: A DIY Zine Resource
I happened to see Stolen Sharpie Revolution on the shelf of a used bookstore just a week ago. (Specifically, Westcott Books on St. Laurent here in Montreal, home to the charmingly rubenesque and friendly cat named Elliot.)
It answered many questions I had about answering zines, and then some. Binding, papermaking, photocopying (and costs involved), plus distribution and content considerations. I’m very glad those in the know compiled such information for people like me, who are curious about the maker’s end of things and how to be involved in the zine community.
If you haven’t been making zines for a while (or any at all), it’s an excellent resource.
Ma Drills is now the Queen-Under-the-Mountain at Drills Hall, and she definitely does not approve of female dwarves sporting beards. But in her youth, Ma was as foolhardy as the rest of us, and rocked a pretty stellar beard of her own.
She finally shaved it for good when she was 130 years old.

How to help out your favorite artists when you don’t have any money
I post something like this about once a year, because I get a lot of messages from people who enjoy my art but feel guilty about not buying things from my store or subscribing on Patreon or getting things from my wishlist, etc. You really don’t need to do ANY of those things to help us out! Eyeballs on artwork is what we want, and just that is really helpful. But there are lots of other, free things you can do, if you want to, that will help us.
- You can reblog our work, with credit! Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, showing people next to you in class or at the library, whatever. The more you reblog our stuff, any kind of stuff, and especially if it has a name and/or link attached, the more followers we get, the happier we are, and the easier we can sell art and pay rent. This is such a vital part of our continued existence and it is difficult to overstate how grateful we are when it happens.
- You can like, comment, subscribe on Youtube, reply on Twitter, and generally make our little numbers go up. Even if you don’t want a drawing on your blog, hitting “Like” helps. If people are browsing your liked posts (if you have this option available in your sidebar or in a separate page) they will see our work. Additionally, higher note counts translate instantly to “more worthy of being looked at” when parsed by an idle, browsing brain. That’s the price of being a member of a social species, and it stinks because it doesn’t reflect “quality” or “innate value” of art, whatever that is, but a post with 4 digit notes is going to get more positive regard than a post with a 2 digit notecount. And really, it makes sense. If lots of people like a thing, it is likely, if only statistically, that you will too.
- You can talk about your favorite artists to your friends. A lot of us idle on skype and irc all day, talking about new album releases and games and twitter beef. It doesn’t occur to a lot of us to talk about how so-and-so just did a cartoon of a fat bird that is making our day slightly better, but that URL pastes just as easily into the chat as any other. Don’t be annoying about it, but like Homeland Security always says, if you see something, say something!
- You can look at/click the ads on our websites. You can disable AdBlock on our websites, too. I have two little Project Wonderful boxes at the top of my blog. They pay me very little per day, but when I need $20 to stop an overdraft fee or buy a food, Project Wonderful has my back. This has happened about a dozen times, enough to teach me the value of having that last, tiny bit of cash just slowly snowballing in the background.
There is probably other stuff that I’m forgetting, so please feel free to reblog and add them.
also personally I am nuts about getting comments on the site because people talking about the comic is the actual BEST
Every one is different but I am 100% okay with you saving images of my work and making them your desktops or even printing them out and hanging them up. Sometimes I even make free things available.
Oh and come to shows. <3<3<3
