Posts Tagged ‘Angry and Mad’

My husband is super busy designing games and doing whatever work he needs to do, so i have taken it upon myself to take over the comics over at AngryandMad.com ! The comic updates every Tuesday, of which i will probably post here in conjunction with it going up on the site.  We still don’t have all the sites working perfectly together yet, and its a bit annoying but i think we will manage for now.  Maybe someday we will get our stuff together.  You’re Welcome

Ali’s PSA: Please Check out my new Page “Help Me Get to South Dakota!” and spread the word about it. I’m selling caricatures (for pretty cheap ;) ) to help me raise the money i need to go on my trip to South Dakota to volunteer on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.  Please help or send someone to the site who might be interested in a drawing from little ol’ me!

In other News, apologies for my absence on the blogosphere as of late.  Lots of amazing things have been going down at our house the past week.  First off, Jordan’s Kickstarter has tapered in backers, but we are still ecstatic over its success and the surprising support the book has gained.  Second, i booked myself into a crafts fair this Saturday where i will be doing caricatures and selling my illustrations and art prints.  Jordan will also be there of course!  And finally, i’m designing a logo for a new local band called the Blarney Stoned.  In short, i’m happy for the work and the opportunities i’ve been given and i hope they keep coming! My next task is to find a park i can draw in for tips to keep myself busy while not on the road during the summer.

Phew! Thanks for powering through that.  I know it was a lot, but it’s exciting to me and i felt like sharing.  So there!

And finally, I did the cartoon this week for the Angry and Mad site!  You’re Welcome

I did this weeks Angry and Mad comic on Jordan’s site.  It was inspired by the Buy One Get One signs in stores and their sometimes ludiocrisy.  That’s right, i made a new word for the occasion.  You’re Welcome

I think i’m a glutton for punishment, but i’m still using the website where i originally ran into the problem with the website that used my picture without publishing permission.  I’m very careful to ask what the image is used for (most people will come right out and tell you because they don’t know diddly when it comes to rights and all that jazz), and that this price does not give them the right to publish.  I’ve gotten less messages and gigs so i assume that my warning has weeded out anyone that would even bother asking or trying to use the image in a way that would violate that.  I WILL FIND YOU

As for my bad run with the website who did use my image improperly, they finally apologized and at least gave me credit for the image on the website, which, in the end, is all i wanted out of that whole ordeal seeing as i was not clear in the first place about the usage of the image.  People see cheap stuff and they go nuts.  Also, i have decided that i will give them nothing more than the couple of dollars worth of work. Anytime more than that is time wasted and a slight to the industry.  

All any artist wants is to get their work out there and a lot of us start off by cheapening our work just so others will buy.  Keep in mind that when you price a piece of work, the buyer is not just paying for the time you spent on the piece, but also the hours and hours of hard work and practice you went through to get to this point in your style and your career.  Your experience is worth more than many of us, including myself, want to charge.  That’s my PSA for today. You’re Welcome

it's a mouse!

Jordan has been working his little butt off for his webcomic site that will be releasing on Sunday.  I’m super excited about it because not only do i think it looks awesome and his humor shines through like a torch in the darkness, but that i get to be apart of it!  I’ll be doing some comics for the Angry and Mad comic section and i will also be drawing and writing one of the animals in Social Animals Stuff.  I can’t wait for all of you to see it!  Please check out the pre-release of the site and i will post about it on Sunday too.  Its gonna be so much fun!

so angry and so mad....

That’s my plug for the day, and because  i love blogging and showing off my caricatures, here is a commission i’ve been working on for my old Alma Mater.  It’s for a tee shirt design so i have to add the text yet, but i’ll show you the linework that i have so far. He was a soccer coach that passed away not to terribly long ago.  He was bow legged and they called his point the “Hook”.  Apparently he was pretty awesome.  I hope i did him justice.  You’re Welcome
