GoFundMe: PC Fund For New Job

http://www.gofundme.com/qnkrfw

Recently, I lost my job at PetSmart Corporate Office that was acquired by a European firm. However, that same day, I received an e-mail - a blessing in disguise. On and off, I have been working as a sub-contractor for a company called Phoenix SEO. This has provided an opportunity to work from home but with the amount of software and hardware both required, I sorely need to upgrade my current system.

That is where you come in.

I am seeking $600 for a modest PC system to help accomplish the tasks required of me by Phoenix SEO. There is a catch, in which I hate to admit, but the sooner I am capable of reaching my goal, the faster I bring in funds to pay for my rent and utilities.

As an optional perk, I will mail a free copy of an art print of your choice as well as a copy of my two mini-comics. It is not much but it is the best I am able to offer as a Thank You!

I’ve enjoyed Jamie Tanner’s previous comics, most recently the minicomic So So Far that he published via funding from Kickstarter. So I was excited to see that he’s started another Kickstarter for a new comic called The Consumptive.

“This will be a sporadic series of little mini-comics, a sort of one-man anthology, with different short stories, strips, odds and ends, etc.,” he said. “Think Eightball, only without the Clowes-level quality.”

He’s has also set up his own “extra small time” publishing venture, Consumptive Press, and if you head over there he has all his previous work available if you are interested.

After Tests Fests Mini-comic. 

I did this one ^ during and after the tests I’ve had. They took my time from drawing, and I got this idea then! :>

I already posted this on deviantART, but I wanted to upload it here to fill this place up. Also practising the new method of tumblr/tumbling! XD

Follow the numbers, reading from right to left.

If it needs any ‘subs’, please tell me so I’d translate! (’cause the text seems unreadable at times ^^;)

Ce/Ze, a minicomic by Suzette Smith, is slated to come out in April 2015 in time for a debut at Linework NW.

Smith’s quiet, loose style spins a new take on sci-fi/fantasy in Ce/Ze.  Honey Czarny and Amelia Smith are 7th graders who share fragmented memories of past lives in which they were powerful beings named Ce and Ze. A rival king’s plot to murder Ze forced her to flee her kingdom. Ce and Ze study and emulate human behavior but wish to return to their realm, where nobody goes number two.

Ce/Ze is the fourth book in the Sparkplug Minis Series, a series of short-run (500 copies) mini comics by new and/or underappreciated artists. (28 pages, black and white with color cover, saddle-stitched, $6USD, ISBN 978-0-9854150-4-4)

Ask a Cat is a 24-page, digest size, B&W humor comic written & illustrated by Charles Brubaker.

This comic takes a jocular jab at advice columns through its main character, a cat that invites questions from readers and then offers insightful and funny responses. Some of the questions submitted and responded to include: ideas for dinner; the authenticity of the moon landing; what to do with drunken sailors; magic; catnip; the need to chase red dots; and more!

Each question is presented in the leading panel of a page and the cat’s answer fills the remaining panels, making Ask a Cat a collection of single page Q&As. The questions are pretty straight forward and focus on things from the mundane to the absurd. The cat’s answers are all tongue-in-cheek and make for a quick, funny, and entertaining read.

Charles’ writing and artwork are always amusing and spirited. His lighthearted approach to storytelling and illustration keep his comics playful and appealing to anyone looking for a little levity. Charles demonstrates he is an accomplished artist and draftsman as he aptly renders his comics is a style that is complementary to, and in keeping with, the stories whimsical narrative.
