Any comic artists in Europe around here?? Here's an open call with a decent grant you can apply for: comicarteurope.eu

For people who are on art related servers,how are things there - is it fun? Feels pretty dead around here, would be willing to move to a more lively place.

Here's a zine "review" featuring an adorable ACAB mole. I draw these zine reviews every month for a Belgian comics website.

Chronotype poll cause I'm curious! ( I would have included a neutral option but ran out of poll choices ( four is not a lot))

I'm a....

Fellow artists, would you be interested in something like writer's hour ( writershour.com/ ) for making art? I'm thinking about setting up something like this, not sure how yet, suggestions welcome ~

Comic about online dating, mention of sex 

This is a comic I made in 2016 when my friend was really busy with online dating. I wasn't really familiar with it personally because I had an old phone for the longest time, but I was enjoying her stories. This is all real, I'm not making anything up. Always wondering about the ethics of what I do but I figure its ok to laugh a bit with those guys.

I posted a comic with a good witch, here's one with a wicked witch 😈 I made this one in 2019 when I was briefly into drawing swords for some reason. This comic is about anger. I think anger is an interesting emotion.
There's a typo on the last page and probably more I didn't see 😑.

In September I got a drawing tablet. This is the first comic I made with it. It's called " the good witch". [1/2]

Random cooking tip ( vegan) 

Did you know you can prepare carrots in the same way you'd prepare salmon? I discovered this recently and it was really fun to make. The idea is to make a marinade of vinegar, nori, dill, liquid smoke and mustard seeds and let the carrots absorb these flavours. I replaced liquid smoke with smoked paprika( easier to find here). Here's the original recipe I used from a Swedish website :

Stories include mentions of alcohol, drug use, sexual harassment and probably social anxieties

I'm thrilled to see more friends on this platform! My good friend @woodandwater has a YouTube channel about sustainability, check it out. I did an interview with her about veganism yesterday! I'm always camera shy and kind of nervous doing video interviews :blobpeek: but it's for the good cause. She is looking for more people to interview so if you have something you want to contribute & you feel called get in touch !

alcohol 

From a story I drew called " the birdmaster " . Now that I'm doing "dry January" this feels relevant to me. Last night I dreamt I forgot all about it and was drinking white wine lol.

Take a break before you need it. It will make it easier to prevent burnout.

Fellow artists, do you also sell work on Etsy? Did you know they can now without your permission automatically take a 15% cut of any sale you make claiming “advertising fees”? 🤑 You may be eligible to opt out even tho no one consented to opt in. Google “Etsy offsite ads” to learn more to protect yourself. I didn’t know until it happened to me today. These are screenshots from my experience. #art #etsy

Some people are taking the time to do cute things for themselves and maybe for others to see. Anyway this makes me think out of the « masterpiece » idea I had all the time in art school and more in a daily practice of creativity and giving.

“When I advise, “Don’t do anything that isn’t play!” some take me to be radical, even insane. I earnestly believe, however, that an important form of self-compassion is to make choices motivated purely by our desire to contribute to life rather than out of fear, guilt, shame, duty, or obligation. When we are conscious of the life-enriching purpose behind an action we take, when the sole energy that motivates us is simply to make life wonderful for others and ourselves, then even hard work has an element of play in it. Correspondingly, an otherwise joyful activity performed out of obligation, duty, fear, guilt, or shame will lose its joy and eventually engender resistance.”
