Hi I'm Wai. I am a comic artist and do screenprinting.
My main project is a monthly postcard club where I send people silkscreen printed postcards every month.
Otherwise I draw and self-publish comics with Love Love Hill. http://www.lovelovehill.com/
my 1% theory is accurate as of now
This is available online now!!!! https://waiau.ca/store/product/off-the-ice-compilation/
if this was work, I'd be sending daily reminder emails like an emotionless machine.
I hate it when people don't reply to emails. I'm giving you stuff, there is no difficult decision making in this, just reply to me. I hate this silence.
I had so much problem screenprinting the covers yesterday but today I managed to make it happen.
I think I'll make this the default format of my books, since it is big enough to bind, but not so big that it is painful to collate.
I should consider not using such a painful approach though. Like stop screenprinting everything. but I like how it turned out.
screenprinting is failing

I just read friends who work in comics retail whining about how some artists have con only merch but not for local comics stores, I want to lecture them but also don't want to get into an unwanted advocate position.
artists already wear 10 hats, is it really necessary to decrease the profit margin by increasing the amount of work and number of middlemen
I've already previously explained that single artists don't necessary have the reach and distribution network of a bigger publisher. why.
I went to Stars On Ice, it was really great 😭 💖 and then I came back and got Skate Canada tickets.. somewhere close to the kiss & cry.... end me.
IT FEELS VERY NICE TO HAVE EVERYTHING DONE EARLY
(from a person who time and lateness anxiety)
I need to learn to make monetizable things.
I feel inappropriate saying it anywhere, because it's technically just salt and spite and nothing else. I do technically need help with this amount of printing, but I will just refuse to let someone /help/. I can only hope that by making everything work this year will erase that terrible scar from last year, but current feelings point to that it will never be undone.
I should have let everything crash and burn last year and it wouldn't be my fault. Now I just get this anxiety.
I'm getting to the state of mind where I hate everything.. due to pms 🙂
I need to draw things that I can sell LMAO
Sometimes I envy people who can actually sell pdfs of their sketchbook pages, because I can't. My sketchbook is mostly stick man with illegible writings.
artist inventory Show more
I counted the amount of stock that I have and it's really not enough for anything. I pretty much need 10 times the amount of what I have and produce. it is my consistent problem.
having a lot of books and not enough people buying them books is a different problem.
BL Show more
I have been thinking about BL > shoujo since BL is definitely something I don't relate and it remains a nice fantasy in a quest to obtain perfect romance?
Whereas if I start drawing shoujo, all I want to do is to complain about how relationships are bad, how men are bad, pregnancy scare plots are bad cliche, but such realities that drive a lot of things negatively.
Although they are technically the same genre, just slight aesthetics difference imo.
