Stars Upon Thars

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 2, 2013, 7:19 PM
Not gonna lie, I'm pretty stoked about that new little star next to my name.


Notes and Formspring

Journal Entry: Wed Jul 10, 2013, 3:21 PM
Um, this is a bit awkward, but I kind of had a little break down last night and deleted all of the notes in my inbox. A lot of them were unanswered.

I've been insanely busy lately and really stressed out, and 15+ pages of unanswered notes continuously building up just kind of overwhelmed me. The only thing I could think to do was make it go away.

I just want to apologize to anyone that was waiting on a response from me. If you would still like an answer, please send the note again, but please keep these things in mind:

- I am not available for commissions. I won't give prices for the future either.

- I do not take requests

- I cannot take on new projects now, such as illustrating your comic or designing logos

- I do not have time to answer interview questions for your school project (I'm sorry!)

- Please don't ask me how I get products made. Use Google. Research. That's what I do.

- Merchandise/store/order questions should be made through the website

- You may cosplay any of my characters (including Strays or GaMERCaT)

- You may draw fan art of them as well (and link me to them!)

- You may get tattoos of my art (this one still surprises me!)

I think that covers most of the questions I get via notes. If you still need an answer for something go ahead and send me a new note.

Also, in order to funnel the silly/curious but ultimately trivial questions I get away from my notes, I went and revived my old unused Formspring account.


Please feel free to ask me anything nonessential there, including stuff about my webcomics or original characters, and I'll get to it when I have free time. That should cut down on the stress of too many notes :)

Animazement 2013

Journal Entry: Wed May 22, 2013, 3:32 PM
I'm going to be at Animazement this weekend! We've got a booth in the dealer's room facing the food court (booth #P12), so be sure to look for us if you're attending :)

Animazement, Raleigh NC - http/www.animazement.com/

I'm going to have all of my Sugar Bunny Shop merchandise, including the GaMERCaT stuff and a few new items, so don't miss out!


GaMERCat, Strays on Tapastic

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 25, 2013, 2:52 PM
GaMERCaT and Strays are now being published on Tapastic!

We earn monetary bonuses for total page views for the month, so if you want to help us out please consider viewing them there occasionally. It's totally free! Plus there are other awesome comics there.






Strays, GaMERCaT Back Up

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 26, 2013, 2:17 AM
Good news, Strays and GaMERCaT are back up! If they still aren't working for you, please clear your cache and try again.

If that doesn't work, please give it a day or two. It may take a while for the changes to propagate across the internet.


Original Post 1/26/13---

Just FYI, the Strays and GaMERCaT websites are down at the moment. Our host disabled them because they were using too much CPU and destabilizing the shared server. The downside of using Wordpress to automate everything, I suppose.

I'm working on getting back my access to them so I can try to reduce the usage, but customer support is being really slow to respond. The sites will hopefully be back up and running very soon.

In the mean time you can view this week's Strays update over at the Facebook page - www.facebook.com/straysonline


Doobeedoo

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 25, 2012, 4:37 PM
Am I the only one that actually likes the new thumbnails? ^^; I used to miss a lot of great art because the thumbnail didn't appear interesting, but with the larger thumbs I can see the content a lot easier. I also love that it crops exceptionally tall/wide images to fit into a decent thumbnail instead of a 1 pixel tall/wide one.

And the alignment system is great. People keep saying it looks cluttered, but I think it's a clean look that uses the space more efficiently. The only issue I have is the lighter border/background that appears on odd sized images or transparent gifs/pngs. I think a better solution could be found for that, but I can't offer a suggestion at the moment.

I think people just need a chance to adjust to it. They sure do hate change.

Also I missed my dA anniversary again, dang it! I always think it's in April for some reason. I can't believe I've been on this site for 10 years! Wow!


Chicago Comic Con 2012

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 6, 2012, 3:28 PM
Once again we're off traveling! This time we're heading to Chicago Comic Con in Rosemont IL! We'll have a booth in the dealer's room and will have all of my Sugar Bunny Shop goodies, as well as some pony fan art and algy's stuff. Not to mention some hand-carved wizard wands by her father! They're really cool!

Be sure to stop by and see us if you're attending :)


Otakon 2012

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 23, 2012, 12:57 PM
Hey guys, sorry I haven't been very actively lately, especially with notes. I'm in overdrive preparing for Otakon this coming weekend, and then Chicago Comic Con 2 weeks after. It's madness, I tell you, madness!

I'll be in the Artist Alley for Otakon, and the Dealer's Room for Comic Con. See below for a map of my location at Otakon.

:pointl: Click me!

I'll have nearly everything from Sugar Bunny Shop and a meager offering of some GaMERCaT items, plus algy will be right next to me with her art and Strays between us!

Otakon is in Baltimore, MD and Chicago Comic Con is in Rosemont, IL. If you plan to attend either, drop by and see us!


Short Story From Long Ago

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 1, 2012, 2:39 AM
Looking for a little help, here. My Mom is asking about a short story she read when she was a kid and I'm not having much luck finding it on my own. If anybody recognizes it or is able to somehow find it that would be really awesome.

She believes it was published in either Creepy or Erie Magazine. She doesn't remember the name or author, but here is the gist of the story:

There were these two beings on a distant world. There was also a big white bird.  One was a man, one a statue. The man always said that he would leave one day on that big white bird.  One night, while the man slept, the bird flew away. He ran to where the bird was, and the statue told him that in the night, the bird, Hope, flew away. The ending is, there is a world very far away, and on it there are two beings. Neither has moved for many centuries. One stands because he is made of stone - the other kneels because he is not.


Can anybody help?


Birthday Thanks

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 4, 2012, 5:45 PM
Wowwwww, so many Happy Birthday wishes! Thank you, everybody!! ;O; I really appreciate it! :heart: :heart:

ACEN 2012 This Weekend!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 23, 2012, 2:24 PM
Hey guys, sorry I've been kind of MIA lately. The past two months or so I've been preparing for ACEN and it's been taking up most of my time. We're going to be in the Dealer's Room this time, so I'm going all out!

ACEN is located in Rosemont, IL and you can find out more about it at their website here - www.acen.org

And here is a map of our location, Booth #1427:



We're going to be bringing the entire line of Sugar Bunny Shop products, as well as books and other items for Strays. We'll also have a selection of hand-carved wizard wands made by algy's father. They're really awesome, so be sure to stop by and see those too.

Once the con is done I'll get back to answering notes and comments and resume my monthly features. I have to catch up on those ^^;

See you later!

Notes! So Many Notes!

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 10, 2011, 1:44 PM
Why do I suck so bad at responding to notes? I'm sorry, guys ;___; Sometimes I'm just like, "I'll answer these later," and "later" turns into four months. I just went through and answered everything I found that did not have a little reply icon, but if you've sent me a note in the past few months that I have not answered, please feel free to send it again.

As a side note, I will generally not answer notes asking which programs I use because I list them in the descriptions of every image I upload. Check there first!

I am also closed for commissions and do not take requests. I don't know when or if I will reopen for commissions, but I will be sure to let you all know in advance so you can be ready.

I also cannot make you a custom product. I'm sorry, but I usually have to order my stuff in bulk so it does not lend well to creating a single custom item. If you're interested in a single custom product, try Cafepress.com or Zazzle.com. They have pretty good rates for made-to-order stuff.

And finally, since I get asked this a lot, you can get your own charms printed at Printsess.com. I know there are one or two other places out there that can make them as well, but Printsess has the best quality by far.

Hey guys, we're going to be at Nekocon in Hampton Roads, VA this weekend!

We're in the Artist Alley, which isn't gigantic like Otakon or anything, so you should be able to find us no problem :) I'll have all of my stuff from Sugar Bunny Shop and algy will be next to me with her own stuff. We'll also have Strays books and merchandise, so stop on by if you're attending!

See you there!
