In light of recent troubles, I’ll be doing this again! Since the time of that post, I’m closing in on about 1/5th of what I need for rent and bills. So.

I’ll be doing another Live Drawing session very soon! You can tune in here, you can send an e-mail to jadaze at hotmail for anything you think I should have a heads up for early, and that is also where payment and donations can be sent (via PayPal – I know, I know.). I have a few drawing challenges I can cover for time fillers, but this is a chance to get goofy little cheap avatars, or something slightly more detailed (shading/coloring after the live event). I’m pretty loosey-goosey about everything, and if there are enough requests, I’ll even stay late. I have coffee, markers, coffee… so I’m ready!

I’ve had this idea for a while now for doing a comic about all the things we can’t see. I don’t want to say much now as I’m still fleshing things out, but part of that fleshing out was starting to tackle small vignettes to help fill out the universe a bit. The first full on comic-y thing I’ve tried aside from Hourly Comic Day in ages. My nerves are a mess. (And here is the Tumblr link for sharing the comic around, better that bandwidth than here!)

Going to Emerald City Comic Con? Wanna find me?
Gathering in the Lobby of the Washington State Convention Center, possibly making our way to the food court or some other locations with a table I can sit at. I will bring stuff to draw on, you will bring yourself and hang out! In theory, you won’t need ECCC tickets – we’re meeting in the lobby, and if we go to the food court, you might be able to join, or if we go to a nearby restaurant or something, you may also be able to join. I don’t really have more specific details than this, I’m king of winging it!
Alrighty! On to the art…
Did you know that Paul and Storm are doing a web series called Learning Town?
I made a new shirt! You can get it on Zazzle!
I made some Jonathan Coulton related Valentine cards you can print out at home, download them here!
That’s it for today!

It is that time of year again soon! Here’s my 2013 edition of Nerdy Valentines! Go here to download the high res version to print a copy at home!

I’m also pretty busy, so this next week will be it if you want anything from me in December. I will possibly also be busy in early Jan., too…
The next Live (Donation or not) Drawing (previously 1, 2, 3 , 4, 5 ) will be Saturday the 15th, probably from about 1pm on, I can be more specific as the date nears. Same general rules for donations and requests, if you can’t well, just come along and watch me draw whatever anyway. Lively chat will help give me ideas!
Seriously, because I would love to pay bills, you know? Maybe have a fancy Christmas dinner since finances prevented thanksgiving…
Here are some examples of holiday avatars I’ve done recently!
And here are some other general portrait style avatars I’ve done recently.
And then there’s the fan art style avatar, this being Angela of The Doubleclicks.
And speaking of fanart…
Art inspired by the Dammit Liz Holiday special, a recent live show featuring @Stepto, Kirby Krackle’s Kyle Stevens, Molly Lewis, The Doubleclicks, Nerdprov, Dammit Liz and more!
Sara Chicazul, Maker of Things.
And a bonus dragon, because wheeeeecoffeewheeeee!

I had that conversation with the very fun Josh A. Cagan (Who has a very fun podcast!), and then I…
Next we have the product of my friend Alice and I joking around on Twitter about John Hodgman, and his potential to take over for Wilford Brimley as a spokesman…
Some time later I noticed Hodgman responding to someone on twitter about being drawn in Edward Gorey style, so I…
And further, Alice sent me a ticket to see a show – the first time I will ever get to see Hodgman live! I got really excites, and ended up…
SO, there you have it! That is mostly what I’ve been up to. It isn’t much, I’ve been sort of penniless, running out of supplies, and having medical issues and mobility drama, so productivity sort of tanked for a while. It happens, I guess.

Your friendly reminder that I am open to commissions!
Perhaps you want an avatar/portrait of your very own? Here’s some examples with really rough estimates of what it might cost:
For more info, please head to the bottom of the shop page for rules and guidelines! For a brief time, I may also post bonus videos of me drawing you art on YouTube, so you can see it being drawn!

I’ve been doing both Live Drawing (for donation or just to let folks watch me draw stuff) lately, as well as taking suggestions for drawing. What follows are a series of examples of these things.
Star Trek Groundhog.
Nerd Olympic Dice Rolling.
Letter M stuff, and monkeys.
You can also click here to see a bunch of videos of me drawing stuff.
Oh! And I did a full coloring on Red Dwarf’s “Cat”, a doodle from my previous Live Drawing. I love Cat! I can’t wait for Red Dwarf X!
I’ve also been doing some of the usual fan arts.
Ken Plume, and the many hats he wears. I made this for his birthday!
Brian Posehn, who I have meant to draw forever.
Molly Lewis in banana toed shoes. I think I’ll let you wonder.
Molly is going on tour with The Doubleclicks! You should check ‘em out if they come to your town!
I also popped in on Geek Girl Con long enough for the concert!
I made some fan art featuring Vixy and Tony…
I also got to see them at the Geek Girl Con Concert!
I also released some new fabric designs, and there should be a few more in a week or so.
That is about all I’ve got for you today.
Sorry for the delay in posting lately. I’ve been really scattered lately with running errands and dealing with flooding in our apartment from construction whoopsies. We’re currently down some key furniture and storage space, meaning I’m kind of stuck in piles of chaos until things get replaced.
I will possibly be doing another Live Donation Drawing soon, or more regularly. It is time again for new shoes (I very nearly blistered recently from spots that are wearing out), and I really need new art markers and better drawing paper. RE Paper, I’ve been using cheap reams of printer paper, but it is too cheap, it bleeds a LOT, especially when I’m stuck using substitute markers. Maybe I can’t get new tech tools for making art, but the basics need some restocking and improvement at least.
