Hey, Hooligans! If you haven't seen it yet, you should have a look at our 2016 Year In Review!

Woohooligan 2016 Year in Review! by woohooligan

Also, I forgot to mention on my last journal, my friend Angel kuroitenshi13 is looking for emergency commissions to help her out with some finances.

646 Sketch Commissions for 5USDIf anyone is interested I am currently taking sketch commissions for a little extra money. I prefer OCs, though Sailormoon is still acceptable. I got two already you can check out, and 1-2 more when people decide who they want.
Also, legging orders are closed, thanks to the few people that were able to help me out on that. There were not enough for me to have them at cons this year, so please note that. It's a shame too because those are my best item.
What might you want to see more fro me this year?


And lastly, I just published my first tutorial video about how I use vectors to speed up comic illustration. Have a look!



Let me know what you think! :D

Hi! I'm Sam and I bet laughing is the best part of your day! Laughing gets you out of bed in the morning and makes a hard job easier. The best and truest friendships are forged in laughter. Laughter and the dark arts, those are the two glues of true and loyal friendship. That's why I've made it my mission to make people laugh since 2006, and if you'd like to help me do that, you can join me on Patreon, or just check out and share our comics at Woohooligan!

:bulletblue: I have lots of sources of inspiration like Gary Larson, kevinbolk, humon, Warner Brothers cartoons, public radio and cognitive science. I'm always looking for new material and challenging new projects.

:bulletblue: I'm a moderator for the-devart-comics where I publish Gutter Stars smolderingremains.deviantart.c… , a series of editorial interviews with dedicated webcomic authors who could use some more exposure.
:iconthe-devart-comics: Gutter Stars by woohooligan

:bulletblue: I also created the Critoons group to help me give back to the community and keep my commitment to write critiques for other artists every month.
:iconcritoons: 2 Critiques by woohooligan

:bulletblue: I'm a big believer in progress, both in my work and in the world at large! :nod: Whatever you're doing, do it bold, take risks, make mistakes and learn from them, and you can change the world! :D

:bulletblue: I created the DFWTX group and was the local liaison for Texasdevmeet because I wanted to meet more artists in my home town. :D Since then I purchased my first home in Dayton, Ohio!
:icondfwtx: :icontexasdevmeet:

I was born and raised in Dallas TX. There's a statue of my great-great grandfather, George Bannerman Dealey in downtown Dallas in Dealey Plaza just across the street from the old red courthouse museum. He was the editor and later owner of the Dallas Morning News and a great person who really helped to build the community, stood up to the KKK and stood up for people facing hardships. Heck, when he owned the newspaper, he refused advertising money from oil companies because he couldn't tell the difference between a good oil company and a bad one and didn't want sham oil companies advertising to his patrons. :D

And now I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Bob Dylan: any man not busy being born is busy dying. :nod:

Hey, Hooligans! We've been hard at work on a few things over here... if I'm lucky, I can post my video illustration tutorial later this evening, but for now I just want to make a few other announcements. First, I just published the latest Hellbent comic page and also our Woohooligan 2016 Year in Review highlighting our challenges and triumphs over the year. I know a lot of crazy, horrible crap happened this year, but it was actually a very good year for Woohooligan, we made a lot of really cool stuff! :la:

:bulletblue: My friend Jen J-Arledge is looking for a female or female-identifying artist for a new comic project.

Seeking: Female Comic ArtistI've stumbled upon this here comic anthology: http://www.dirtydiamonds.net/submit/
And I would love to take part in it. So I'm looking for a female (or female identifying) comic artist to collaborate on a 2 - 4 page comic to submit. Bonus: there is pay involved if our submission is accepted. 
I'm already playing with some ideas revolving around body positivity, and I hope I can find an artist to work with before the deadline in February.
Please note me if you're interested. ^_^


:bulletblue: My friend Bill Taylor spinester recently started a new sci-fi comic, Ariel 51. Check it out! www.ariel51.com

:bulletblue: Another deviant I wasn't familiar with, Halgalaz opened some emergency commissions.

Emergency commissions (prices added )EDIT : I can squeeze in one or two more slots if asked , I will do the commissions in the order I got them  , only colored pieces will get a preview of the sketch before I color it to avoid any errors in the designs asked , please do not ask for updates excepted if I take way too much time for them ( like 3 weeks )
I'm kinda stressed over this bank account thing so I think I can open some emergency commissions ( paypal only ! ) so if anyone's interested you can message me ? and please no comments like "i'd commission you if I could" I'm REALLY in shit rn so I don't really want to hear this , also If you want to commission please don't take forever to reply , It's urgent for me ( paypal takes days to transfert money to my account )
I don't really have an idea of prices to ask for but I really need money until I get my paycheck , I believe I can do things around
these styles : 
EVERY PAYMENT GOES HERE : https://www.paypal.me/Halgalaz

:bulletblue: On a more sober note, I would appreciate if you could help me with a problem in the autism community. This is a situation that's going to require some public advocacy. It's a slightly long-ish story, but it's all explained here, thanks!

You don't deserve to be unsupervised in public. "You don't deserve to be unsupervised in public." How does that statement make you feel? Comfortable? Confident? Supported? Scared? That was the first in a string of harassment my wife received and I had hoped it would soon be over, but striving for resolution has lead me to larger concerns that remain unresolved over a year later. And because of these concerns, not just myself, but the entire autism community needs your help.
Imagine for a moment that you are autistic or have some other disability and you've moved to a new town where you don't know anyone. You decide to seek out a support group for your disability and you find one. You attend your first support-group meeting and it seems good. Several days later, you wake up to discover that the support-group manager (SGM) is harassing your wife on Facebook. The harassment is in response to events that you and your spouse personally witnessed, but that SGM only heard about second-hand from a friend (AF). You're scared, because you don


:bulletblue: Lastly, a couple different people have tagged me at various times and you know, I just don't get around to these because I never really feel like I have time, but what the hell, I'll give it a go.

From :iconsavvyred:

1. What do you think is your best quality?

There are so many that are super-important... compassion, determination, optimism, honesty... There's a website made by the "father of positive psychology", Martin Seligman, and his team, that has a questionnaire to assess your personal "strengths and virtues" (this is based on a book called Strengths and Virtues that they created as a companion to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) which only describes mental illnesses like autism and PTSD). Anyway, for me it listed my top three as Love of Learning, Kindness and Creativity, and ironically ranked "humor" sixth. ;P (Out of twenty-four, so it's in my top quarter.)

If you're curious, you can take the questionnaire here: www.viacharacter.org/www/

2. How many deviantART accounts do you have?

Multiple accounts? Ain't nobody got time for that shiz! :bucktooth:

3. What country do you live in?

The United States of Holy Shit, Trump's in office! Lots of patriotism around here, you know, this is the greatest country, the best! (EDIT: Do I have to say that was sarcasm?)

4. How many languages do you speak?

Three, but only one any gooder... scratch that, all super-fantastically... English, French, Spanish

5. What is your favorite movie?

I have a really super-difficult time picking a single film... or book... or TV series... or comic... or character... There are a ton of action movies I've liked over the years, but the movies that really get to me, the ones that stay with me are the thinkers like Phenomenon... I think right now my top three are the Adjustment Bureau, Idiocracy and the Invention of Lying.

6. If your haircut was an animal, what would it be?

Some kind of long-haired dog... one of those breeds where you can't see their feet because the hair covers them up.

7. What is your gender identity?

I'm a dude, but not a bro as it were...

8. Do you have any pets?

Oh god... we've got two cats and two dogs, my mom moved in with us and has another one of each, and Tiffany got a tortoise a couple years ago, so that's seven in the house.

9. If you were a character from a movie, who would you be?

Data in any of the Star Trek: Next Gen movies.

10. What is the worst lie anyone has ever told you?

"Your wife screamed at me... / threatened to kill me." ... or possibly "I read minds." (and meant it literally) ... It's sort of a long story, but you can read about that here if you're curious:

You don't deserve to be unsupervised in public. "You don't deserve to be unsupervised in public." How does that statement make you feel? Comfortable? Confident? Supported? Scared? That was the first in a string of harassment my wife received and I had hoped it would soon be over, but striving for resolution has lead me to larger concerns that remain unresolved over a year later.

From :icondragonofyore:

1. Your Element (Earth, Water, Fire, Air)?

Tough call... I'd like to be water -- it's super versatile, patient, and given the right circumstances it can cut through stone or steel

2. Grossest food ever eaten?

By me or in general? By me it would have to be vegemite. In general... toe-jam?

3. What is your spirit animal?

Mantis... Several years ago a whole bunch of mantises appeared around me suddenly in a period of a few weeks -- a couple physical ones, but most of them were symbols, like a tech company named Mantis that I worked for. One of them actually climbed in our bedroom window, laid an egg-sack on our bed and then I nearly stepped straight on her as I was walking into my office in our apartment... scared the hell out of me when I saw it suddenly just under my foot.

4. What is your spirit Furniture?

Bean bag chairs. :bucktooth:

5. Do you know what interdigitate means?

No, but I would guess it means holding something in your fingers.

6. You walk into your house after work on your birthday, and somebody sprays you with silly string, your reaction?

Wry smile.

7. Did you hate Dolores Umbridge more than Voldemort?

Don't remember who Dolores was.

8. What is your favorite thing to draw and why?

Jokes. Dey funny! :bucktooth:

9. Worst you've been hurt before?

Physically or emotionally? I ran into a car on my bike once... I had my hand through a window accidentally... infected tooth was probably more painful than either of those... the cancer didn't really hurt actually... Emotionally, see the last question from the previous set above.

10. Did you read Sword Of Truth series?

No. That's not your series is it?

11. how many hours do you spend drawing every week on average (be Honest!)?

Oh, god, I have no clue... I spent at least 40hrs every week on "work", but work is more than drawing. Work is also posting to multiple social media accounts, networking, advertising and research. How much of that is drawing in a given week, I have no idea.

12. what is your favorite type of music?

I'm an 80s kid... pop music mostly... but I'm super-ecclectic... I listen to all kinds of celtic, new wave, folk, jazz, etc...

13. did you have a crush when you were in elementary school? What was he/she like?

If I did, I've long since forgotten. :shrug:
