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.
SATURDAY, July 25. 1 pm to 3 pm EST. On my YouTube Channel.
Join us as my buddies Ben WH and C. Beranek and I discuss the future of comicons. All 3 of us have been a part of the comicon scene for years, as vendors and attendees. With everything that’s happening right now, we’ll be discussing our ideas of what the future could look like.
What do you think will be the future of comicons? What would you like to see happen? Let us know in the comments!
This is a replay of a livestream I did earlier today.
I livestream every Saturday from 1 pm to 3 pm EST on YouTube. Every Saturday I share what I’m drawing, pro tips on being a better artist, and slices of my life. What do I draw? Every week it’s a different theme. This week’s stream theme? Monsters! MONSTERS EVERYWHERE!
Also in this stream/replay? A GIVEAWAY.
If this replay gets 40 likes on YouTube between now and the next stream, NeverEnding, Inc will give away a FREE health potion vial to a lucky viewer!
Which is fitting, because these monsters are being drawn for NeverEnding, Inc.
HerdCon 2020 has been cancelled, in large part because of the Coronavirus situation.
Now, DO NOT lash out at the organizers. Please. They made the best decision they could with the pressure they had and the information available to them. I trust their judgement. And I trust them when they come back next year. They have plans to run HerdCon 2021 and I hope to make it.
Before I continue, please: take care of yourselves. Especially if you have autoimmune issues.
Ok, now let’s get into it:
Well now, my Friday and Saturday are wide open. So I’m taking Friday to catch up on KickStarter rewards.
