The Fundraising Post

Hey! Hi. We—-that is myself, Mamaflash, and Dem-hips—-are running a fundraiser this week. On Labor Day we had an emergency vet visit. The story itself could be triggering, so I’ll provide a link to it below and just say here that we lost too much money to handle with our current jobs. (And, more importantly, the most amazing pet I’ve ever known.)

In happier news, in order to try and cover rent, we’re doing a second printing of our Yowamushi Pedal shirts!

Both available at our storenevy, UPSTAGE

The last con left our stock pretty empty, but we’re bringing the screens back for both our Peak and GROSS patterns all this week. Please check ‘em out! You can also contact us at our gmail (Upstagemail) if you have any questions about sizing or potential color changes, and we’ll do the best we can to accommodate you.

If you want to know what the fundraiser’s in honor of, or just find out a little more about a wonderful animal, here’s an info post about Nonny. It’s not a quarter of what she deserves, but it’s all I’ve got in me at the moment.

NOTE: We’re working to scrape up our other goods as well to place on the storenvy, so if you’re not interested in bikes, please bookmark it and check back in a bit to see if we have something else that interests you—-how about cute whales or Psychonauts? We’re working on it!

Hello tumblr, let me tell you a thing. 

The lovely lady who made this post is my friend Avis, who is, without a hint of joking, one of the most kind and giving people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. 

She and her housemates have been through some especially rough times recently after the loss of their bird Nonny, who was without a doubt every bit as wonderful as the ladies she shared a home with (she got it from her mamas). You can read more about Nonny in the info post linked above, and I highly recommend doing so because she was one of the most wonderful creatures to ever take a nap on my shoulder (this is a high bar, I assure you).

The last thing I want anyone to have to deal with after the already terrible pain of losing a pet as well-loved as Nonny is to worry about how they’re going to be able to pay vet bills or anything else.

So I guess I am just asking you guys, my followers, all 15,000something of you, to take a couple moments out of your day and read some words about a wonderful animal and some wonderful people, and if you find something in their shop that you’d like to have for yourself, or simply wish to reblog and help spread the word, or offer them any words of kindness you can muster, it would be so, so appreciated, because these ladies and their bird mean the world to me.

Thanks to you all, and I hope that brighter days find everyone, looking ahead.

This little bird was far and away one of the most fantastic creatures I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, and her all-too-sudden absence dealt a crippling blow to her equally lovely owners, both emotionally and financially.

Please take a look around their shop and/or reblog this post if you can.  These ladies are beyond wonderful and I hate to see them endure more than they already have.

Thanks so much~

OH SHIT IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN! As some of you know, I recently quite my nearly-fulltime job and have been working in a studio/at a comic shop and practicing my art as a part-time gig on the side (rather than just a hobby). The jobs I work that pay me only JUST BARELY pay the bills, so I would love to do some extra work for YOU to drum up, you know, gas money. So let’s see what we have on the menu!

Pencil Sketches bust 10$/full 15$

BUT WAIT, are you a writer or journal roleplayer? Because I can definitely do concept art for your Original and AU characters too. A little visual always helps, so check out these options:

Set of (5) Icons/Userpics - B&W 20$/ Color $40 
Single Icon - B&W $5/Color $10 
(example1) (example2)

I take Paypal pretty exclusively, and would LOVE to ship you any original artwork for an added shipping cost (2$ US/3$ Intl). Message me here on tumblr if you’re interested, or send me an e-mail at vanwinkle@lannyhuang.com!

Can’t wait to hear from you! ALL OF YOU!

unbearably hyped about Enemy Starfighter and other upcoming space sims, so i decided to scratch that itch and do something utterly self indulgent

swapcats:

So! I finished writing my books. All three of ‘em. It’s been a huge undertaking and I’ve put as much time as I have love into them. I’m feeling all kinds of things right now, but that’s not what I want to talk about.

I want to take a moment to thank all the people who’ve supported me along the way. Who’ve listened to me blab about the characters endlessly, who’ve read the books and helped me figure out what does and doesn’t work. The people who’ve shared their headcanons with me and drawn me art, the people who’ve pointed out typos and just given me so much encouragement.

I honestly wouldn’t have got this far without all of you, and it certainly wouldn’t be a story this dear to my heart.

So in no particular order, all my thanks to: skepticarcher, ourfaeriesarediffering, dem-hips, qthorn, tchbee, tentacle, fluffymurellow, fmorgana, sturmschwinge, sassygaykorra, paschblue, sakuraaas, gryfeathr, zellk, lionsenpai, Grace, and I really, really feel like I’m forgetting people because I’m exhausted from writing and also starving, but I really appreciate you all! 

I’m so incredibly happy for you dude - this has been one hell of an undertaking, but you stuck it out and utterly nailed it.  It’s been an absolute joy and I look forward to seeing how it all comes together!

AND TO THE REST OF YOU, keep Swap’s stuff on your radar and get hype because when this thing drops for y’all to read, it’s going to be unbearably cool
