Australian fans can purchase Hello World from the fabulous independent comic book store Impact Comics. They have done so much to support Australian comics and local artists that I actually prefer it if you purchase from them instead of me directly!
We’ll be part of the Horrific Miscue booth at G127. It will be great to see you there and anyone who is a Patron who comes up and says hello gets a Greetings from Seattle poster or a Bunson Hoppydew Sticker!
I am without ink and I’m not sure I ever will be. I’m so honored someone would love one of my characters and like my art enough to decide it would be permanent art. Boot will always been in my heart, and now other places too.
There is an alchemy that happens when you create in service. For me, it gives me a freedom as well as a responsibility. I may be stretched and asked for things that are a little beyond my comfort zone. I must hit a deadline, create the best experience, use my doubts to fuel energy, research, doing and completion, rather than letting those same doubts spiral down into self-defeating anxiety.
You can tell the difference, the alchemy when you look at this reflective blog post (nice, sure, but I’m burying the lead, I’m guiding you into something rather than bravely just going for it) and the blog post I wrote for Uncanny Magazine that went live today! In that post I get straight to the heart of it.
I am Liz, creator of the Things. Thank you so much to everyone who nominated me for a Hugo, simply making it to the long list was one of the best feelings I’ve had this year.
I am launching a Patreon. Patronage does so much! I would love your support. Thank you for supporting me, and thank you for supporting Uncanny Magazine.
THIS IS A VERY LONG WAY OF SAYING my Patreon is live. Through that website, you can nourish creators like me for as little as $1 a month. I can already feel how it’s motivating me as a creator, I want to book more shows and reach out to my neighbors more. I would love your support. Thank you for reading this and go check it out!
The first ever drawing I did of the things (click the way back button to see and see how much I’ve improved) was
Today we stared at the sun until we went blind, it was a good day.
As I’m writing thing I’m listening to the NASA live stream and watching the eclipse through a pinhole projector made out a water cracker. It lasts for hours. So check it out if you have blue skies in North America (you’ll get a partial eclipse at least), in a way that does not make you go bind. And everyone can watch the stream 🙂
Many characters from the things, and extras! A smiling moon has almost finished crossing the sun.
Today we stared at the sun until it went away and came back again.
It was a good day.
Chuffles: hello moon.
