The Cost of a Dream - Tuition Help
My name is B, and I'm a 29 year-old queer black comic artist and illustrator living and working in Austin, TX. Over the course of the last year, I've been prepping myself to apply for university by starting my drawing blog and immersing myself in my art. The time has come! I've been accepted to SCAD in Georgia, and I've never been so excited to embark on a journey of this magnitude. Though I've been on my scholarship and financial aid grind, I still need 1/3 of my tuition for the first year of school, so I'm calling upon my fans, friends and supporters to help me actualize a dream I've had since I was a kid.

Ayyyyyy yo! 

I know I haven’t posted in a while, and that’s okay because I have been super busy trying to get my ducks in a row. If you’ve been following me around on my personal blog or IRL, you know I’ve been working my ass off to get accepted into art school. Its happened, friends!

I’m going to be packing my bags and moving to Atlanta in the fall to attend Savannah College of Art & Design to pursue a BFA in sequential art. My hope is to hone my skills and continue sharing my experiences as a queer, black non binary person through comics and illustration as well as lend my talents to making animation and youth entertainment that represents and encompasses the black and queer communities. Its going to be a big and bold move, and I’m both terrified and electrified! The time is now and I’m stoking the fires in preparation for this leap. 

Over half of my tuition is covered by academic scholarships and financial aid, however I still have about $11.5k to raise. That’s a huge number and just thinking about it kind of makes me sick to my stomach. Luckily I qualify for tuition installments, and I need to only cover about $4.5k before the beginning of the first quarter in September. That gives me about 2 months to raise the money, and I am confident that I can meet my goal with the help of everyone who has ever supported me, cheered me on, encouraged me and believed in me from the start.

If you are able to donate, please check out my GFM page especially if you like my art because donors who gift at least $25 will get an original illustrated portrait of a person of your choosing as well as other incentives! It might not sound like a big deal, but I believe in my skill and my talents, so hold on to that drawing as it will become a priceless piece! 

If you can’t donate, please please please spread the word. Even if a few folks who can’t contribute monetarily can share my post, I just know that there is someone who is willing and able to help support my cause with a couple dollars. 

Every bit counts, so please reblog, donate, share and encourage others to do the same. This my opportunity to try something different with my life and begin working toward the goals I set for myself as a youth. Though I am getting a later start than some people, I feel the time is right for me to venture forth. I feel as if I am dripping with alchemy! Let’s turn up!

and the dim streets they haunt is a horror story composed of a series of non-linear stories following the (increasingly odd) lives of the Sykora family as their numbers diminish and the walls around Havnen grow.

as of now the prologue and part of the 1st chapter are up, i plan to update the comic 3 pages every other day for the next week or so (update notices will be posted in the tag ‘dim streets update’!)
 it’s a really fun thing to draw and i’d appreciate it if you could give it a read and reblog this post!

Okay so I have some news about that webcomic I mention sometimes~
I’m changing the name of it. There’s a few reasons I’m changing the title:
The first being it was kind of a bad idea naming my art blog after the comic, it creates confusion and it was a bad idea in the long run and two: the name ‘Winters Shade‘ doesn’t fit the story anymore! Its gone through a lot of changes since then and I feel like the new title suits it much better! c:
I hope you’ll stick around to see what happens,
the comic isn’t quite as close to being finished as I hoped it would be, but I’d like to start showing more sketches and concepts of the world and characters soon! I just need to stop being shy about it xD
