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!

The Penultimate Week of Inktober 2022

Here we are, in the penultimate week of Inktober 2022. If you missed them, here are weeks 1 and 2.

For those who don’t know – Inktober is an artist’s challenge to draw in ink every day in October. Usually, people create prompt lists. I pick a theme and draw to it. This year’s theme is characters from my stories! These are from comics, written work, Dungeons & Dragons campaigns, and other places I tell stories.

Here’s what I drew for Week 3!

Day 14

Archie the Vampire. I played this character in Shades of Chicago – an Actual Play I recorded with The Fourth Leg! We played Urban Shadows, a Powered by the Apocalypse game, and I got to play Archie, this absolutely fabulous he/they who knows how to slay.

day 14 of inktober - Archie, a short man with dark brown skin, thick dreadlocks, and golden eyes. He strikes a flamboyant pose while wearing a poofy purple shirt under a slim gold vest and well-tailored pants and leather shoes.

Day 15

Seamus from The Uthers (a comic in progress). Seamus is an informant for an underground organization of human rebels in an Uther-supremacist society.

Inktober day 15 - Seamus, a genderqueer human with messy brown hair, pale skin, and freckles across their face. They wear a teal sweater vest over a pale green button-down shirt. The shirt has tears that have been patched.

Day 16

Nautilus from The Uthers. He is a cyborg, a human constructed into a machine. Usually, The Arena commissions cyborgs as gladiators or sex slaves. But records only indicate that he is a “private commission.” He is doing everything in his power to keep disenfranchised humans safe from the Uthers.

inktober day 16 - Nautilus. A male cyborg with black hair, pale skin, and piercing blue eyes. He wears a blue leather jacket with no shirt underneath. Out of one sleeve emerges a pointed blade.

Day 17

“Angora” The Last Valkyrie. Her true name is not known. She and her five sisters destroyed their world so the Angels of Jehovah would not seize it. In retaliation, the Angels killed Angora’s sisters. Viktor tried to claim her as a “bride prize” but she resisted him, running to the Sages for refuge. There, she fell in love with Malus, and together they had Kay. As of this writing, she has been kidnapped by the Angels and has not been seen since. Malus and Kay are fighting to save her.

day 17 - angora the last valkyrie. A woman flies, regal and proud, one hand raised. Her fiery red hair is shaved on the sides of the scalp, and the rest is pulled back into a high tail that reaches down to her mid-back. Her black wings extend out. She wears red leather under a long blue vest. Both are laid over dark green leggings and tan boots She wears armor on her shoulders, forearms, and shins. In her lower hand she wields a sword with a golden hilt.

Day 18

Auxaton the Gray, from The Name of the Forest Spirit (a yet-to-be-released novel). His people had been taken by The Brotherhood of the Demon Lords. He is now on a quest to find them and rescue them from slavery.

Inktober day 18 - Auxaton the Gray. A gray-skinned elf crouches down, ready to run. He wears a shining golden breastplate, boots, and arm gauntlets. He narrows his violet eyes at the viewer with a look of determination. He also wears a tattered brown cloak, a long, dark blue loin cloth, and gray leggings. On his shoulders and upper arms are swirling indigo tattoos.

Day 19

Runemage from The Name of the Forest Spirit. A reluctant ally to Auxaton and his cause, he initially tried to rob the elf and his friends. However, it soon became clear they were both after the Brotherhood – Auxaton to save his people, Runemage for revenge.

inktober, day 19 - Runemage. A man with a rabbit's head is missing one ear. With a cocky grin, he holds up one hand, the other hand on his hip, and summons a ball of teal green flame. He has no shirt, revealing lean muscles under a light gray cloak. His arms are covered in rune tattoos. He also wears a layered red kilt.

Day 20

“Star” from Fwishi’shi (working title). She rules the seas at the cliffs of Seabank. Her name is unpronounceable to those who know common, so Fuloos gave her the nickname. It’s not the only history they share, either. She hasn’t been seen in many years, however.

Day 20 - "Star" the sea nymph. She has a woven dress made of seaweed and kelp. Her skin is sea green, her hair long, wavy, and green as seaweed. She has solid blue eyes and webbed toes.

Be sure to come back next Thursday for Inktober sketches from Week 4 – the final week!

The characters this week are in stories I talk about in more depth with my Digital Club Members. You can Subscribe here, or get a 1-month trial subscription on Ko-Fi. Either way, you’ll get access to scripts, sketches, and story previews no one else sees.

That’s all for now. Thank you for stopping by!

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!
