Halloween Ko-Fi Talk

I hope you can join me today from 1 pm to 3 pm EST on YouTube! I’m hosting a Ko-Fi talk with my writing friend Melanie and my comic buddy Ben Wright-Heuman.

What will we talk about in the livestream? Anything and everything from National Novel Writing Month to my recent switch to Ko-Fi!

That’s right – I switched away from Patreon, and went to Ko-Fi instead.

Why? Here’s the thing: I’ve been on Patreon since 2014, and Patreon support has helped fund over half of my comics. But they’ve been rolling out new features WITHOUT fixing the errors they have in their system. Like dropping pledges without warning to the patron OR the creator.

So I’m switching to Ko-Fi for a smoother, less glitchy experience.

Also, Ko-Fi has features that Patreon does not. Things like:

  • the ability to buy a coffee for your favorite creator,
  • giving JUST ONCE. (A monthly subscription is optional).
  • a shop feature!
  • a feature that lets you place a commission request from me!

(Seriously, how has Patreon not implemented those features?)

If you have any questions or concerns, this livestream is the best time to ask. So again, I’ll be streaming TODAY from 1 pm to 3 (ish) pm EST. Ask your questions over on YouTube.

If it’s not addressed in the livestream, I’ll write up a post to go in more depth about the switch. In the meantime, there are more details about rewards and what I’m trying to fund over on Ko-Fi.

Hope you can join us! Thank you for your support.

You. Are. Awesome.

New Home, New LiveStream

Now that I’m settled in my new home, it’s time for a new livestream – which is available for replay!

I’m running a giveaway with this video: leave a like AND a comment on YouTube. When the video reaches 20 likes, I will giveaway the Charlie & Clow comics trilogy FREE to a lucky viewer!

You have until JUNE 12 to participate in the giveaway.

Here’s some links to things that got shout-outs in the stream:

8Can’tWait – for folks who are comfortable with making phone calls to elected officials. This one is calling for police department reforms that are proven to reduce violence.

A List of My Favorite Black Creators. This will be updated over time. It includes visual artists, YouTubers, and musicians.

Jungle Jordan. If you want wholesome content featuring a black man talking about wild animals, this is the channel for you. He is just precious.

Vigo Burrito on Instagram draws a webcomic called Growing Up Gerudo. If you’ve ever asked yourself, “What if Ganondorf from Legend of Zelda was more of a dad?” then read this.

Stay tuned for giveaway updates AND a new blog post on Monday.

Thanks for watching!

You. Are. Awesome.

Orc Wizards and Patrons – A LiveStream

Now available as a replay! Watch me draw an orc wizard, talk up Patreon, and have a chat with surprise guest, Seeing Him co-creator Kia!

This episode does run for about 2 and a half hours. It ran extra long because a) I wanted to keep drawing, and b)…

There’s no livestream next week.

I’m getting ready to move to my new apartment June 1. So no livestream on May 30. Streams should resume on June 6. If that changes, I will make posts here and on social media to let you know.
