No Streams During November 2022’s First Week

There will be no streams during November 2022’s first week. I will be out of town on vacation from Nov 4 through 6.

However! I will be on a special stream on November 7. That’s the day What the Gnomes Know: A Comics Anthology launches on KickStarter!

Speaking of KickStarter, I have a new book! The Stars of Fantasyville: A Sketchbook collects all of my Inktober sketches in one book. You can pre-order it now, and get a variety of add-ons to customize your reward package.

Stay tuned to this blog – more posts are coming to make up for the streaming schedule disruption.

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!

Stream Schedule for the Last Week of October 2022

live streams every saturday and sunday at 2 pm est*. 10/29 Twitch - off (rebranding). 10/30 YouTube - Final Countdown of Inktober 2022. The bottom block said twitch.tv/kelcidcrawford and youtube.com/c/kelcid. *subject to change whenever the heck I feel like it - or because of conventions or the cruds.

Here is the streaming schedule for the final week of October 2022!

This Saturday, October 29, I’m not streaming. I’m rebranding my Twitch channel to shift more toward tabletop RPG topics.

This Sunday, October 30, I’m streaming on YouTube at 2 pm EST. On that day, I’m drawing for Inktober! Inktober is the artist’s challenge of making a new ink drawing every day during the month of October. It’s the final days of Inktober, so I’m drawing the final sketches, showing the sketches for the month…and talking up a new KickStarter campaign to get these sketches to print.

If there are any changes to the schedule, I will post the update here on this site.

That’s all for now. Thank you for tuning in!

Subscribe Page FAQs

Let’s address some frequently asked questions regarding my Subscribe Page. My Subscribe Page launched a few weeks ago as an alternative to Patreon! For as little as $3 per month, you get supporter-exclusive content. But if you still have questions, I hope this page helps.

“Why build your own page? Why not use Ko-fi or Patreon?”

I’ve written this before in other posts and in emails. But I’ll say it again here. Patreon has, and continues to have, a lot of issues going on behind the scenes (like finding out they let go of their security team. Which – YIKES). In the past, that’s why I moved away from Patreon and towards Ko-fi.

However, Ko-fi is starting to not like the latest pages of my webcomic, The Legend of Jamie Roberts. Because how dare I depict male nipples and incorporate the F-word into my product listings?

To be honest, both of these platforms are starting to feel limiting. If I want to make the comics I want to draw and that you want to read, we have to find an alternative ourselves. That’s why I built the Subscribe Page.

“Do I have to make an account?”

Nope! Stripe processes the payments. All it needs is a name, email, address (if you’re getting things mailed to you), and a payment method. That’s it! No account needed.

“I want to Subscribe. Do I pay for one month at a time, or pay for the number of months I want to Subscribe?”

The system is set up so that when you purchase a subscription, you’re charged for your first month on checkout. After that, the subscription recharges based on your sign-up date. (e.g. if you Subscribe on the 1st, you buy for one month, and you get charged again on the 1st of the following month).

“Do you have a trial available?”

I do, actually! You can get a 1-month trial via this shop listing on Ko-fi. Alternatively, there’s also a 6-month offering if that tickles your fancy.

“Can I buy a Subscription for a year so I’m only charged once?”

As of right now, there’s only one way to Subscribe for a year. And that is to back one of my crowdfunding campaigns, like on KickStarter, Crowdfundr, or Ko-Fi. Subscriptions are available during campaigns as an add-on reward. Shorter subscription windows are available as a shop listing (see the answer above).

“My financial situation has changed. How do I cancel my Subscribe plan?”

UPDATE 10/27/22 – There is now a link for you to manage your subscription!

If all else fails, there should be a link on your email receipt with the option to cancel your subscription. If you can’t find it, reach out to me at kelcidcrawford@gmail.com and I can cancel it for you. No questions asked.

“I want to get on the Pin Club. What are your pins made of? Enamel?”

Pins for the Pin Club are acrylic. However, an Enamel Pin Club may come at a later date, depending on how successful the Subscribe page is.

“Will you list your zines or pins in your Ko-Fi shop?”

Zines and Pins for the Zine and Pin Clubs are Subscriber exclusive. Which means they won’t be available in my Ko-Fi shop. If I have extra pins after sending them to Subscribers, they will be listed as limited-time rewards on crowdfunding campaigns like KickStarter or Crowdfundr.

Still have questions? Leave a comment and let me know. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!

No Streams October 22 or 23 – I’m Away At Aistear Con!

live streams every saturday and sunday at 2 pm est*. One block says 10/22 Off - Away at Aistear Con! The second block says 10/23 Off - Away at Aistear Con! The bottom block said twitch.tv/kelcidcrawford and youtube.com/c/kelcid. *subject to change whenever the heck I feel like it - or because of conventions or the cruds.

I will not be streaming on October 22 or 23. Why? Because I’m away at Aistear Con in Bowling Green, OH! The show will be held at Aistear Brewing on Route 25 for all 3 days.

If you’re in the Toledo area, I hope to see you there. I’m marking down a lot of stickers, prints, grab bags, and other merch for clearance.

Because of that – my online store will be closed this weekend. The stock for the shop is the same as I use for conventions. Any clearance items I still have afterward will get marked down in the online store.

Stay tuned, however…

Next Weekend, I’m launching a new KickStarter campaign!

If you want to be among the first to claim rewards, be sure to get on my email newsletter. The newsletter peeps are the first to know.

After that, I return to streaming on YouTube two days in a row – October 29 and 30! More updates on that coming soon.

That’s all for now. Be sure to come back Thursday for an Inktober update.

Thank you for reading!

Inktober is the artist’s challenge of making a new ink drawing every day during the month of October. I’ll show what I drew the day before, and the process of day 16’s inking. I’m also going to make some sketches in advance – again, to prepare for Aistear Con weekend.
