P4A 2016 Requests for Pledges

Last year during the days leading up to the Project for Awesome, I took drawing requests in exchange for donation pledges. People sent me asks saying things like “I’ll give this much money to the P4A if you draw this thing” and then I drew the thing and posted it, and hopefully the person donated the money they agreed to. It was really fun, but the amount of publicity I got for doing it led to me being overwhelmed with requests, while other blogs started doing the same thing and probably didn’t get as many. With the amount of excitement generated by this whole idea, I realized that I think as a community, we have the potential to raise a lot of money this way. 

This year I want to make a post with a list of creative Tumblrs that would like to do requests for pledges, and then I want to get that post promoted as much as possible. 

So, if you have a Tumblr where you post any kind of art (including stories, music, etc.) and you want to be listed on this post, send the following information to me by December 3rd, and I’ll publish the post the next day. If you have an ask box, I will link to it in the post. 

Email to 

  1. your tumblr url
  2. your name and/or the title of your blog
  3. a description of the kind of art you’re taking requests for (drawings, comics, fan fiction…). Include any conditions you have for requests (for example, if you’re only doing nerdfighter-themed art, or you’re only taking requests on certain days, or you don’t take anon requests) and anything else you want to include. Example: “I’ll be taking requests for Nerdfighter-themed drawings and short comics from now until Sunday.” 
  4. if you do visual art, send me a sample image to include in the post

Some additional notes: You don’t have to do all of the requests you get. The idea is that people only donate IF you post the thing they wanted. 

The official dates for the P4A are December 9-11. Usually the donation window extends a few days before and after the event. 

Please share! 

Project for Awesome 2016 - Submit Your Favorite Moments!

The livestream has ended, and in true P4A fashion, it was full of some of the most beautifully ridiculous things to ever appear on the internet. Hank will be making his annual recap video, and we want to make sure it includes your favorite moments! Submit the parts of the stream you loved the most using this form



Here’s what I made for the P4A art perk this year. Sets of 3 notebooks with a worldsuck decreasing theme.

I had a lot of fun making these. I have plenty more behind-the-scenes pics if anybody wants them (I do love taking artsy pictures of piles of scraps), but I hit the tumblr picture limit. I’m not going to get to watch a ton of P4A livestream because I’ll be at work, but last year Hank showed off some of the art perks. Send me a screenshot if these show up in this year’s livestream. Let’s all raise and crap-ton of money for charity, yeah?
