I'm running a patreon to support my webcomic, The Firelight Isle! Often feel like I'm just spamming my followers on other social media by talking about it all the time, but it really is important to me, and the money goes right back into the creation...

50 minutes left in my Kickstarter campaign! Can't believe how well it's done, and the mastadon community has helped a lot! Thank you to everyone who shared ^_^

Hi all! ^__^
I've been a bit quiet lately, and it's mostly because I've been spending every evening working on this!! The kickstarter for a hardback bindup of the first volume of my webcomic, The Firelight Isle!

There's an animated trailer and everything! (It took AGES =_=)

One of my favorite ways to spend a break is to go back and view works on ArtStation or DeviantArt and similar places. I like to see how artists evolve over time and how similar themes pop up in other pieces later on

It's like listening to classical music and seeing familiar refrains show up in different compositions over the years

Fun tinnitus tonight. 2 tones, one high and piercing, one randomly alternating between two lower pitches. Always gets worse when I'm tired.

It's bang on midwinter, and here's a new episode of The Firelight Isle! ^_^
Massive thanks to all my patrons.

It's still a few years off, but I've been wondering lately what to do after The Firelight Isle. There's so much I'd love to do, so many genres I'd like to write in and styles I'd like to try, plus all sorts of other media! I just don't know how to pick one.

SO, the internet is stuffed full of brilliant artists! So much so that it's overwhelming sometimes. But what qualities keep you coming back to an artist for more?

I find looking around that often the artists that achieve greatest exposure tend to do one thing and do it consistently and publicly, until they're known for it. But what draws you in, and who are the artists you find yourself going back to for inspiration or entertainment?
