Hi cozins! I'm Chama, making a graphic novel about gay boys in Renaissance Italy who just want to find love, but end up getting a lot more than they bargained for.

πŸ’« Read it here:

πŸ’ž The Sun Prince, the Saint and the Changeling - It's got m/m romance! It's got mystery! It's got snazzy Renaissance outfits! (v.important)

I've never seen a candle wick do this before! It's like a tiny mushroom cloud in a tin.

Hey tooters! (Mastooters?... what are we calling ourselves?? πŸ˜† )

I did an illustration for the next chapter of my comic, and it turned out pretty nice!
I've been staring at greyscale comic pages for months on end, so it was nice to see the characters in color for a change.

This is a really important time to push free and open source alternatives to #Patreon! I've considered using @Liberapay, but was afraid I had to use Patreon to get the network effect.

Please tell people about #Liberapay, post about it on Reddit (r/patreon), vote it up on Alternativeto, etc

Please boost! This kind of opportunity to topple a near monopoly with FLOSS does not come often!
Are there other FLOSS #crowdfunding platforms?

My block is without power, so I've been burning candles for hours. My room smells *so good* right now. 😊

The artist's dillemma: Do I just BS this one costume thing, or waste *another* hour trying to find reference? 😫

Hey listen. Either you're turbo or you're not. Everyone knows BI-turbo is not a real thing.

@purplePaws For a variety of body types and interesting poses I really like Croquis Cafe's image archive:

Bodies in Motion has a lot of acrobatic/gymnastic poses, yeah, but a lot of other variety of action-y poses as well:

The photographic Height/Weight chart gives a lot of examples of body types at various height/weights:

And the Humanae tumblr is a fantastic resource of different faces!
(That link will give you a random face every time you click it, or you can go to the main blog and just scroll through at your leisure.)

Hope this helps! :)

My coding know-how is hella old; I know outdated html things and a bit of CSS. PHP might as well be chaos magic to me. So I've been modifying my comic's WP site by tinkering with existing stylesheet, adding html here and there, and hoping for the best.

But TODAY, today I *added* a PHP thing. And it worked!! :D **On the first try!**

I'm gonna celebrate with sushi. Or maybe a crispy fish taco from Baja Fresh. (They are soooo good.)
Hell, I might get TWO tacos! LOL πŸ˜‚

Really enjoying "The Royal House of Windsor" documentary on Netflix. Episode 3 was all about Elizabeth's husband prince Phillip.

He kinda rubbed me the wrong way as he was portrayed in The Crown. (Which is *excellent* btw!) But hearing the full (er) story, and seeing actual footage of him changed my mind. I don't sympathize with him feeling resentful about taking his wife's last name -- it was the 20th century, get over it, y'know? But having to give up a career and an identity, that must've been brutal.

Lesson to self: don't believe everything you see on TV. 😬

Not entirely sure how to tag this but I feel like a lot of people here on Mastodon might be interested in, which is an organisation trying to fight against the monetisation of our attention, and they give suggestions on how to get control of your online experience and how to design applications/websites/systems from an ethical perspective.

... Now listen here, facebook tips algorithm.
You come to me... on the day of my daughter's wedding.... telling me how to run *my* business?!

My favorite character from the webcomic Califata. Made by my awesome friend @brinsonmarie !

I love Oriane cause she has a sweet, playful personality, and yet she’s totally a player on the political scene. Or rather, she operates behind the scenes, so I have to wonder how many people even know they should be concerned about her. >:) Hehehe
