:new: Just a quick note, my friend Tom NyQuilDreamer is a little over half-way to goal on the Kickstarter for his next Nextus book.

Hey guys! So, I've been so busy the past couple years between custody of my kids, diabetes, moving to Ohio, repairs on the new house and most recently cancer and my new goal for 2016, that I've not felt like I could make the time for either keeping up with giving critiques like I used to or the Gutter Stars interview-features I used to do here... to be honest, lately I've been struggling to cut down on the amount of time I spend on DA, which is really hard for me because I love this community so much, but if I want to reach that goal for the year, I HAVE TO find a way to cut back on the amount of time I spend checking and responding to messages.

Having said that, I stumbled on this comic this morning called The New Yesterday, and while I haven't read more than a page or two of the story, I think the art is beautiful! At the same time however, Mackenzie has been on DA for a year and his average daily pageviews are still in the single digits! This guy's work is a real undiscovered treasure here on DA, so I thought I'd take a brief moment to share it with you fine folks! :D


Prologue - Page 09 by jmackenziegraham

In other news a few days ago I finished a book about marketing called Audience. I give the book a rating of "fair" -- long on anecdotes, short on actionable advice. If you're curious, I wrote a very short review on Facebook. I've got several other books to get through on the road to my goal of earning a living -- next on my list are the Complete Idiot's Guide to Guerrilla Marketing and Social Media Marketing For Dummies All-In-One. Wish me luck! :D

My next immediate goal is to get to $86/mo from my comedy by March 1st. While I feel like I'm a little behind on that goal because we're almost on Feb 1st and I'm still at $43/mo currently, someone gave me a generous $40 donation on PayPal just yesterday, which means that I actually hit that goal for the month of January! :la: So I'm keeping at it (I would anyway), and let's see how we do in February! :nod:

Stay awesome, Hooligans!

Journal History

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.

: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.

:bulletblue: I'm a big believer in progress smolderingremains.deviantart.c… , both in my work smolderingremains.deviantart.c… 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:


January Progress Report: Ahead of Schedule! by woohooligan
January Progress Report: Ahead of Schedule!
Hey guys! We're ahead of schedule for the month of January. Woohoo!

If you're curious about how my crazy life-journey is going, you can check out the whole rund-down of everything I did in January, plus a bit of commentary about why my goals are structured the way they are over here:

A Good Name p3
I meant to upload this teaser around noon yesterday, but I didn't get the page finished until late last night. I was pushing myself to get it up before the end of the month because even though I've already published more this month than I've promised on my Patreon (6 pieces in January before this one), I wanted to make sure I got a 4th page of the comic up this month, a strong start to my goal for the year. :D

Anyway, Amity's fans get a little weird in today's page. :O_o:

And stay awesome, Hooligans!
