Journal Entry: Thu Mar 20, 2014, 8:31 AM

I have most totally not put a journal up here for about a million years or so. I'm spending every moment I can working on The Firelight Isle, so I've been super pre-occupied, and I don't have many random drawings to post!

So if anyone's still watching and interested in The Firelight Isle, I've launched a campaign on a website called Patreon (which totally sounds like a Pokemon) to try and find support while I work!
Patreon is a service a bit like Kickstarter that lets fans become patrons of their favorite creators. Unlike other fundraising services, which raise for a single big event, Patreon is for creators who create a regular stream of work that they give to fans for free, and need ongoing support.

If you're interested, you can donate as little as $1 a month, and get perks for donating! Perks include your credit on the website, advance previews of new work as its finished, and copies of printed editions! Click here to see more details on my Patreon page!

If you're looking for support for your own project, I'd also recommend setting one up for yourself! It's a lot more hassle-free than Kickstarter, and there's not as much confusion over whether the people donating are in it as consumers or as philanthropists. Pretty much everyone who takes the time to sign up just wants to help out, and perks are more of a thank you from the creator to the patron than the driving force behind the campaign.

  • Listening to: Pyramids
  • Reading: Yotsuba

Hello, greeting from Japan! Konnichiwa.
I came from your art "Happy Bunny" through checking new deviations.
I clicked your art, and liked your style, visited your profile page and watched OV of your world.
I am completely attracted to your world. I am also doing similar kind of thing (it is much much cheaper one though :) ). I build my world and try to draw exotic thing for 4 years.

I do respect your way of expressing Exoticness (Im not sure it is right way of saying)! I watch you!

It was really great meeting you at the MCM : D I totally lost the little business card that you gave me though ;-; It was the one with telegraph poles on it (I love telegraph poles *__*). I put the lil' postcard you gave me on my wall above my desk, it's so pretty! I can't wait to see more stuff from you : D Also The Firelight Isle is beautiful! <3
