I have been streaming live on YouTube and Twitch on Tuesdays and Saturdays for a while. However, for now, I’m putting live streams on hiatus.
Why? A few reasons…
I’m working on a new schedule due to a side gig. I don’t always have Tuesdays or Saturdays off. If I return to it, the days I stream will have to change.
I’m getting burnt out. I’m out of ideas for what I can stream live, and I don’t want that to show in front of a camera.
I need new ideas for what to stream. The obvious answer is “gaming content” but I’m not terribly interested in that. Plus I don’t have a good set-up for that sort of thing – for tabletop OR video games.
I don’t know when (or if?) I’ll return to streams. But for now, I’m pausing so I can rest and recollect.
In the meantime, I will make an honest effort to upload to Instagram and TikTok more frequently. You can follow me on Instagram @kelcidcomics and on TikTok @kelcidc.
Also! I’m posting to this blog more frequently. That’s the plan, anyway. Stay tuned.
That’s all for now. Thank you for your understanding!
Well, after that I want to run these streams differently.
For one thing, I’m going to bring the schedule down to doing one new stream a month.
For another thing, I’ll be doing giveaways during these monthly livestreams – I’m still sitting on a LOT of books and art.
Also, I want to do more than just drawing live. With convention season and workshops not being things for the foreseeable future, I would like to do more tutorial livestreams.
Just to spitball some ideas, these are the sorts of workshops, panels, etc I would be participating in during convention season. Let me know which of these topics you’d like me to talk about in next month’s livestream:
How to Make Webcomics
LGBTQ representation in comics
How to Make a Minicomic
Character Design That’s Awesome
In the meantime, I’ll be taking a break from posting online (stream or otherwise) until the week of July 15. But I’ll be in the comments…lurking…
Yes, I’m putting my vlogs, Review Day Tuesday Videos, and other videos on an indefinite hiatus.
My energy right now is going into my work – making comics, doing stuff for clients, making things for Patreon, and selling at comic conventions. YouTube was a thing I did for the fun of it, but I have to put it aside for now so I can focus on work and still have time to relax.
As mentioned in the video, I’m updating the blog portion of this website a LOT more often, so you can still keep up with what’s new here on the blog. I’ve also been updating Facebook and Tumblr a LOT more often, especially since I got rid of Twitter.
