The latest episode of the Tropecast is up! I finally managed to make it back onto the show, and we got to do the topic of my choosing, Soap Opera Tropes. In this episode, I reminisce about watching Days of Our Lives in the late 90′s and early 00′s. Click the image to head over to the Tropecast website and give it a listen!

Hey all! I’m exhausted this morning after a very long night at work, so what I’m going to do is sleep now, and then finish today’s comic later tonight when I am well-rested. Keep an eye on Twitter for when the new page goes up!
Of course, if you’re reading this in a feed reader, you wont have to, because of MAGIC.
And don’t forget to keep voting in the TGT Tournament!

Hi everyone! I’m traveling home from Otakon today, so the next comic update will be bright and early tomorrow morning. It’s all drawn and everything, so I just have to ink and color it when I get home.
Thank you to everyone who came by my artist alley table! I enjoyed drawing all your ponies. XD
UPDATE: The position has been filled. See you at Otakon!
Hey folks! I’m in need of some help at my table this weekend at Otakon. Chris is unable to go with me, so I’m looking for someone who can be at the table during the majority of the Artist Alley hours to take money, give change, fetch me food, and watch the table during bathroom breaks and the like. I really really don’t want to have to go through such a big convention by myself!
The open hours for Artist Alley are:
Friday: 1:00 PM – 12:00 AM
Saturday: 10:00 AM – 12:00 AM
Sunday: 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Before you look at the closing times and freak out, I do not intend to keep you there all night! I will be packing up between 8 and 9 PM on Friday and Saturday.
In exchange for your time, I can offer a meal per day and 50% reimbursement of your registration. I don’t mind if you want to leave the table and do things, but I do expect you to be available for a majority of the Artist Alley hours. I also expect you to show up at the opening times each morning. And you MUST be over the age of 18.
If you’re interested, please send me an email [firstname.lastname@example.org] telling me a little bit about yourself, and we can work things out from there. ^_^
Thank you for reading!
Wasn’t able to get a comic done for you today, so here’s some scans from my sketchbook. These are the thumbnail drawings for the last few weeks’ worth of comics.
In case you didn’t hear about my predicament elsewhere, I was in a car accident on Wednesday morning. I’m starting a modest fundraiser to help cover my travel costs to Otakon in two weeks. If you are able, I encourage you to browse through the offerings in my store, or you can donate directly with PayPal here. Thank you!
I hope everyone has a good weekend!
After thinking about it all day, I decided to start a small fundraiser to help defray the costs of getting to Otakon. For those interested in helping out, I encourage you to take a look at my store’s offerings, and if you so prefer, you can make a donation directly right here with PayPal. There’s also a link in the sidebar for quick reference.
Thank you all for the kind comments both here and on twitter. I’m feeling a lot better than I did this morning (I think another nap was a big factor) and things aren’t looking quite so bleak.
Some of you might have seen on Facebook, or some of you might have seen on Twitter, but for those who missed it, I was in a car accident yesterday morning. I’m okay, as is the other driver, and I just have some minor injuries from my seat belt, and the airbag deploying. It was my fault, and I don’t feel like talking about the actual event any more than that, because I feel terrible both physically and emotionally.
Unfortunately, my car is probably totaled. I live in a city that’s pretty navigable with public transportation, and I’ve used it many times while my car’s been at the mechanic and such, but this is still a hugely stressful situation for me, since I relied on my car for so many things. It’s going to be a little while until I can get a replacement, since I have very little money saved up, and some of that will be eaten up by my citation and other expenses that will surely stem from the accident.
Right now, I’m not sure what this means for my trip to Otakon in two weeks. I’m going to do everything I can to get there, and I’m considering several options; renting a car, shipping my merchandise and flying, et cetera. Right now, renting a car for the weekend seems to be my cheapest option, which will run me about 200 bucks, depending on what kind of vehicle I choose. I’m avoiding flying if at all possible, since that would lay a burden on my Baltimore relatives to transport me to and from the con every day, all weekend.
Anyways, please send some good karma my way as I figure out what I’m going to do next.
