Never-Ending List of Things to Do, September Edition

5 Sep

Planning out the next couple of months, and thought you might like a glimpse of the schedule.

Art Projects

I try to do comic-related charitable donations, and this year I’m redoing the Mangina Kaiju slapdash art for a print. I thought long and hard about which charity should get the donations. Ideally, it’d be a women’s-centered organization, but there’s this thing called the Internet in which every single decision you make is dissected down to its bones and found lacking, and I didn’t want to promote any Stupid (e.g.: implying women are monsters, implying men are monsters, implying the female reproductive system shall rise from the sea and throttle us all and aaaaaah!). So all proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association, which is a cause near and dear to my heart. Fuck Alzheimer’s.

Also, Halloween is coming up. I try to do some sort of art pinup. This year, I’m thinking some members of the comic’s cast dressed as characters from Penny Dreadful, but I’m still open to suggestions.

Novels

The third Rachel Peng novel has a title, and the cover art is in draft stage.

I’m still playing around with the idea of releasing a Hope Blackwell novel at the same time. These books would deal with one or two of the same plot elements and events would align chronologically, but from the perspectives of Rachel (no ghosts) and Hope (all of the ghosts, oh God so many ghosts). With Patreon as a supplemental salary, it is more likely that I can afford to take the time to do this than it was a few months ago. However, this would push the release of both books back until mid-2015.

Patreon

Beyond awesome. Simply beyond awesome. I’m eating so much crow about this, and it is delicious crow! You were right, I was wrong, and I hope you’re happy!

Now, what to do with all of these collected dick jokes? I want to release the older, stale ones that Patreon supporters have already seen to encourage newcomers to become supporters themselves. I’m leaning towards a Tumblr account that receives a huge batch update of dick jokes every three months or so, but I’m open to suggestions. My rationale for using a Tumblr is that it’s got zero overhead, requires minimum time investment, and gets massive traffic and reblogs. Any other ideas?

Kickstarter

Digital Divide is done, but Maker Space is still in recording phase. Summer was a rough time for my family, and also for the woman who is doing the reading for the audiobooks. We’re likely going to resume recording on Maker Space later this month.

I’m arting all of the arts on the other Kickstarter gifts, so hopefully I can get these out in one large push.

Giveaways

Several generous people purchased extra copies of Digital Divide and Maker Space and told me to donate these to readers in need. I’d like to do something nice, but the usual “Retweet this to be entered in my contest!” is both annoying and dull. How about a Post-It contest? Write GIMME BOOK! on a Post-It and send in a photograph of where you stuck it… I dunno. That’s the best I’ve got right now.

I Know I’m Forgetting Something

I know I’m forgetting something.

I’m Totally Forgetting Something

Yeah, I’m aware.

Seriously, This Is Going To Bug Me All Day

I’m just gonna hit Publish now, okay?

Apparently I have a live Patreon campaign

30 Jul

I must have missed a form or a checkbox or something, as I’ve been setting up a live Patreon account. And by “live,” I mean “I thought it was a hidden draft but no, apparently anyone on earth can drop in and see that I’ve just entered OH HELL in the Describe Your Project section and $10 PLACEHOLDER BALLS for most of the Goals.

Anyhow.

The campaign is now live. Which is ahead of my original timeline, but, you know. Placeholder balls.

I’m excited about the monthly $5 tier, which gives me the opportunity to do Literal Dick Jokes. I didn’t want to put this particular image on the Patreon page, but someone asked me a while back where the dick jokes had gone and I was… Inspired?

"Inspired" is a horrible word to describe this.

“Inspired” is a terrible word to describe this. Doesn’t capture the sheer divinity of the moment.

The perfectly clean dick joke delights me. For $5 a month, a Patreon supporter gets one of these Crude Humor(tm) doodles every morning. It might not always be a happy penis, mind! I’m looking forward to serving as the scribe who chronicled the slow but violent deterioration of the unhappy friendship of Richard Dickerson and Martha Von Vagerton.

Here’s the link to the campaign again.

I really need to go work on a comic. Please stop starting fires, Internet!
