Did you know the human body will shut itself down if you stare at a screen working for more than 20 hours? It’s true!

Photoshop crashed because it hates me and the entire world and wants us all to be miserable

Been re watching criminal minds on Netflix lately… It’s a phenomenal show but it’s starting to bum me out. I guess serial killers can do that…

I fell asleep in the middle of breakfast and getting ready for the work day because I am an adult.

I hate the episodes with children. Those are really hard for me to watch. @-@;

And since these few Character designs have been posted on Comics Alliance, I assume it’s okay to post here! I wish they had posted some of my favourites! I drew SO MANY cool characters for the anthology. It’s bound to be hella radical!!

Boom Box Mix Tape Announced!

Hey peeps. check out this rad article on Comics Alliance about the project I’ve been cranking out in the last month for Boom! Studios! It’s an anthology with a BUNCH of super cool peeps contributing! I did all the character designs and a three pager about a talking hamburger! 

It’s gonna be the coolest biz, you should buy it. :)

#Rian2NewHope Gofundme is ending!!

Hey all! I’m sure you’ve all seen #Rian2NewHope going around for the last month! Well, it’s time we closed up shop on it!! This’ll be the last two-week stretch if you’d like to donate! The campaign will be officially closed on September 30th. As of writing this post, we’re close to 67% funded, which I cannot express my gratitude for raising. I’m only a little more than 2k shy of a life changing operation. That’s so fucking stellar!! and so so much closer than I was a month ago. I want to thank you all, every boost and donation and to everyone who volunteered their time and art. 

To all of you who donated for artist sketch incentive tiers or to those who would like to claim sketch incentive tiers, please note that artists are allowed to opt-out at anytime! So the sooner you contact them the better your chances at snagging a slot in their queue! Please contact your chosen artists in a timely manner after donating!

"but Rian!" some may ask, "What is #Rian2NewHope? I’m so new to you and your blog!”

#Rian2NewHope is my gofundme campaign (found HERE) to help finance my gender reassignment surgery. You can read more about it on the GoFundMe page, the original tumblr post and in the 50% funded video. Every dollar raised goes directly to my goal of $6,831, the total sum for my first GRS operation. I’m working tirelessly to save the money, but I could not have done this much without all of your incredible support.

Please check out the #Rian2NewHope tag to see some of the amazing artists helping me raise the money for surgery and consider a signal boost or donation. Literally every dollar helps and is greatly appreciated.

trinosaurus said: So I'm looking to get started on a comic of my own but... I feel a bit lost. Like, I've designed a lot of characters and tried out different art styles. I've tried writing the first chapter out in play format. I know there is no "right" way of doing things (everyone works differently) but what's your general process for comic making?

I tend to dive in head first. I’ll have a general idea of what I wanna do- but nothing concrete. I find that I tend to get stuck in “designing hell” if I dont just jump in and make it up as I go. I spend too much time trying to make my character designs or story perfect, so nothing ever gets made.

Have a rough idea how you want your chapter to go, maybe write it out so far as a first draft, then go for it. Start drawing. That’s the only way to really figure out your own flow and process!!

A bunch of my very talented and generous friends have donated their time to offer sketch incentives. For a solid $100, you can get a sketch from any number of the current artists listed! Thats a whopping 25 (and the list is growing!!!) character sketches for only $100. All the proceeds are going towards my surgery fund!

I’ve been thinking about making a thank you video just before/after my surgery to show you all just how much this is changing my life. I hope to mention and thank everyone who’s donated.

Thank you so much to everyone on the artists list, who have donated their time and money, who have signal boosted and shared this campaign. I’m thinking that we may just do it all the way and it’s incredible and humbling to know just how much goodness is left in the world.
Thank you so so much, from the bottom of my heart.

The fundraiser has slowed down quite a bit but I haven’t given up yet!! Please if you could, check it out and give it a boost! You can get a buncha rad art from ~30 different artists!!
