After much discussion, I think the hashtag I'm going to recommend for talking about comics stuff, whether it's WIPs, scripts, story ideas, thumbnails, panel compositions, dialogue balloons, pacing, etc. is going to be:
Use that hashtag whenever you talk about making your #comics to connect with a wider community of comic and narrative art creators in the Fediverse.
Keep being awesome, campers! ⛺

I was talking with a pal that's down on their work. It was classic impostor syndrome and I suffer from it too.
The only people with blind faith and utmost confidence in their abilities are crazy or dumb. Just say fuck it and make stuff regardless.
You WANT your taste to outstrip your abilities. That's what's gonna motivate you to get better.
The fact you see things you don't like means you have a good eye and standards. That's a good thing! Just...
...note it, move on, and hope to apply any lessons learned to the next piece.
Look at it this way -- are you gonna fucking quit? No. So, if you aren't gonna quit, the faster you let that go the better. It's just fuel.
And I'm in no way perfect about this. I'm just telling you the things I tell myself to work through it.
One of the greatest things about art as vocation is that the skill ceiling is so high.
My taste CONSTANTLY outstrips my ability and I rush to catch up. Over. And over. And over again.
I hope I'm still learning as long as I'm breathing.
I've lost a few Patreons in the last couple of months. I get it, money flow is turbulent for a lot of people.
If you're in a position where you can support and you'd like to get some pretty desktop backgrounds, mandala art tutorials, colouring pages, and even signed original art, I'd appreciate it. <3
The date and time for the 10-hour-twitch-stream for my local foodbank has been decided!
I will be live on Tuesday the 11th, from 10am to 8pm GMT! Please consider throwing a few coinz at this important cause if you are able!
I'm preparing to do another 10 hour art stream to raise money for the foodbank in a few days! The support we got last year was INCREDIBLE and I'd be forever grateful if you'd consider RTing/donating to get me off to a great start this year too!
Hey everyone, let's do an introduction: I've been living with anxiety and depression all of my life, I'm 30+ now and live in Europe. Recently my mental health has declined and this outlet is my way of taking the very first step to realize my dream of writing about mental health and all the tips and tricks I've learned. I need to remind myself of what I know and this time I want to write it down. I aspire to some day write something that can help someone else. <3
