JP people are RTing my yoi comics, I feel like I transcended languages.

it'd be nice to keep the quality up, but I don't see it right now ๐Ÿ˜‚

what goes up must come down, and I had two good runs and I think this round it's going to be not as great

I have ko-fi but I haven't really done anything with it... I wonder what to do with it

@smbsy I'm talking about the certainty of income itself.

If I work part time at a coffee shop, and it won't even pay me hourly wage, then there is a problem with the job itself.

I can go ahead and make 100 paintings, but who knows if I'll even sell one.

being self-employed means having a healthy amount of income and that kind of decides whether I'm actually self-employed or a bum but as an artist. There is no guarantee of income when you do a thing, as opposed to working a job you'll for sure get paid for the hour whether you do anything at all.

@dirchansky thanks, but I should have enough until the fabric I ordered arrives!!

I really need to adapt to calling myself a full time artist rather than unemployed.

currently dying over the fact that a friend of a friend whom I have met IRL does not realize who I am online and have ordered things from me online multiple times and still doesn't realize that we are in the same city ๐Ÿ˜‚

I had to redo a screen and realized that I am actually running out, so I got 3 yards of 200 mesh. =_= dnw

I want to do comics but I'm at a loss. They say if you want to do a thing, just do the thing and not other things. But it doesn't help when it doesn't pay back.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH

I am tempted to do another tier of screen printing on my patreon but I wonder if it's wise.

I might be reaching the peak and possibly at a plateau right now, but I need double the followers to even just pay rent since I set it up at not an ideal price so half of my money actually goes into mailing cost and supplies. ๐Ÿค”

at the very least, it'll force me to produce more work while my emulsion is still fresh 8)

@Rinru may be people just don't use pixiv so they don't talk about it ๐Ÿค”

I ordered more screen printing supplies (inkjet transparency). I don't really want to spend money on it but then I do.

I don't use pixiv much but ahh my fav artists... where are they going to disappear to.

no one in english circle is talking about pixiv shacho getting sued for sexual harassment ๐Ÿค”
and it seems like people are trying to get off that site now
