Artist Spotlights, Kickstarter, New MedsHey, Hooligans!
I think I was trying to wait to post this journal until I had recorded a better video for our Laugh It Forward Kickstarter, but I've been having trouble getting a mic that works with my Canon Vixia, so I'm going ahead and posting now instead of waiting 'till at least Tuesday.
The Laugh It Forward Kickstarter launches in a little over two weeks on March 6th! I did manage to find 60 people who answered the call for artists to spotlight, and about 17 of them have already filled out their interview questions. One person dropped out, so if you'd like a spotlight during the March campaign, there's one empty seat.
I think the project is pretty ready for launch. I am of course pretty nervous. Here's the preview if you'd like to offer your thoughts on it, that'd be great!
I know the video's real rough -- I'm waiting on a new mic from Amazon before I record another one where I
Punching Nazis: A Handy Guide!Hey, Hooligans! I just put up a new satirical blog the other day titled, as you've obviously guessed, Punching Nazis: A Handy Guide!
I also got my 60 artists just at the end of the month and sent out the forms for the artist spotlights during my Kickstarter next month! I've already seen several responses, and, the google form doesn't work the way I thought it did! But the foul-up isn't so bad that I can't work with it.
I've been seeing a lot more engagement with people on Twitter lately, sharing my tweets about a couple of the strips and blogs I'm trying to promote, like my comedy manifesto and the trickle-down economics info-comic.
Oh, subscribers on our mailing list TRIPLED last month to 93!

Merry Christmas! Holiday Shopping HilarityHappy Holidays, Hooligans!
First, if you'd like some Free Promotion in March, I'd like to remind everyone that I'll be doing a daily Artist Spotlight during my Kickstarter that will start March 6th. All you have to do is let me know what project(s) you'd like to promote and how best to contact you (note, email, Twitter, etc). I'll get you in our spreadsheet and follow up with more details closer to March.
I just found out Lehmurix had a house fire and the family lost everything. Please help if you can.
JA Meyers TheBrassGlass is compiling a list of comic creators on DA.

Free Promotion! Please share.Hey, Hooligans!
I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before that I'm launching the Kickstarter for my next two books in March. I'm also using this as an opportunity to promote some of my friends and other artists. So, every day during and maybe even before the launch of the Kickstarter, I'll be publishing a daily update and artist spotlight!
All I need from you right now is an idea of the projects you'd like to promote and a way to contact you -- social media, an email address, whatever. Leave me a comment or a note. We'll talk more about the details of the promotion closer to March.
If you're new here, Hi! My name is Sam, I'm a comedian and a cartoonist. If you're wondering if this promotion is a good fit for you, you can check out some of my comedy here: Laughter Is a Moral Imperative and some of my more popular comics from 2016.
Autism Diagnoses and Kickstarter PlanningHey, Hooligans!
I made the last couple updates on my Patreon public.
First, both of my younger kids (16 and 19) got official autism diagnoses yesterday. It's good news, because it makes them eligible for supports they wouldn't otherwise have access to.
And the other thing is I'm planning a Kickstarter for March to publish the next two Woohooligan books.
And the rest of today I'm working on another comic page and a couple of comedy articles.
How are you folks doin'?
p.s. If you haven't seen it yet, check out Laughter is a Moral Imperative. I'm really happy with this little manifesto, I think it's one of the best things I've written.
Also, my friend Amy lilrebelart is having some tech issues and could really use a commission or two. Here's her commission page https://radamy.
Laughter Is A Moral Imperative!Hey, Hooligans! It's finally published!
The Laughtifesto explains why I say laughter is a moral imperative, and while it doesn't talk about my cancer, it's a purer, less commercial declaration of my feelings about comedy (compared to Patreon), why I make it and what I hope we can all accomplish with it.
Several of the people who saw early drafts of this manifesto say they not only enjoyed it, but they feel it's an important message for people to hear, especially lately with everything we're seeing in our news. I hope it fills you all with joy!
And I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! Don't let your racist uncles get you down!
I'm also planning a Kickstarter in March for Woohooligan Vol 2: Laugh It Forward and Hellbent Vol 1: Hell If I Know. Looking forward to that! And I've scheduled an AMA to coincide with the launch. If you want to keep up to date with the Kickstarter plans, sign up for our mailing li
Webcomic Whimsy: Nextuus!Hey guys! My friend, Tom, publishes this cool sci-fi comic called Nextuus. I just published a review of a couple chapters of it, and Tom gave me a little useful feedback as a reviewer also. His is posted as a YouTube vlog, and included it in this DA journal here:
Brain Dump - What are you folks up to?Hey, Hooligans! There's been a lot going on lately, so I'm just going to run down some bullet points for anyone who's interested. Some frustrating stuff, some good news, a few tv-show and book recommendations. What are you up to? Leave me a comment.

Los puntos de DA, el dinero de rascapiquilandia16 de Marzo de 2010
Puntos de Deviant Art, el dinero de Rascapiquilandia
Posiblemente el título de este artículo os resultará extraño si no habéis visto el primer capítulo de la sexta temporada de los Simpson ; en el que la familia amarilla va a visitar el parque de atracciones de Rasca y Pica. En este episodio, la taquillera le ofrece a Homer adquirir dinero de Rascapiquilandia, informándole de que se utiliza dentro del parque como el dinero normal, pero teniendo más gracia. Homer compra dinero de Rascapiquilandia por valor de 1100 dólares , y nada más entrar en el parque se encuentra que el 99% de los comercios no aceptan dinero de Rascapiquilandia... un gag que siempre me hace esbozar una sonrisa de complicidad.
¿Que por qué os cuento esto? Pues porque guarda una tremenda similitud con el sistema de puntos de Deviant Art, el cual pretendo explicar con detalle
Pillowing Pile Thrift Store (New Stock Alert!)Welcome to the Pillowing Pile Thrift Store!
Here is a place where pillowings and lintlings come to rest, recover, and eventually go out and find new homes for themselves. For whatever reasons their old homes didn't quite work out, but that doesn't mean they're giving up. They're eager to meet you and can't wait to explore your home!
If you would like to purchase one of the adopts here with your cc, please comment below.
A mod will then comment back to confirm and collect the pillowing or lintlings things (extra art if it has any) for you and send you both on your way by note.
If you would like to trade or gift your pillowing/lintling away, just comment on the pillowings or lintlings archive submission at the Pillowing-Archive.

~Interview with Doll Schmidt~Hallo! Today we're here with Doll Schmidt, say hai Doll!
Doll: *smiles* Hello!
Alright, I'll be asking you some questions about yourself, and I want you to answer them truthfully, ready Mrs. Schmidt?
Of course, sweetie!
Okie, here we go.
How old are you?
When's your birthday?
Is your name really Doll?
It's only my nickname. My real name is Maria, but I prefer to be called Doll.
Aww! Maria is such a pretty name!
*giggles* Aww, thanks!
What's your favorite color?
I love pastel colors, and orange is my favorite.
Oh! Something other than the popular choices!
What's your least favorite?
Um, I honestly like all the colors, but I would have to say black and white... They're very bland.
I gotta agree. I need color in my life!
Same here, sweetie! *nods*
What's your favorite food?
I'd have to say sandwiches.
What's your least favorite?
I'm not a big fan of seafood.

March 7th, 2018 - gold system
If you are waiting for an app review, rest assured, it is coming! I am trying to be detailed so it takes a while for me to write. Please refrain from sending notes/additional comments.
To current members, as you might have noticed, the gold journal is marked as outdated. I am planning to rebalance the gold system. It would be to your advantage to wait before submitting drawings for gold until the update is released (you are free to submit to the gallery, but I'd advise you to stall adding it on the site).

1. Keep things family friendly (G or PG rated).
2. No sexual/fetish/provocative themes. For the same reasons, keep clothing relatively modest. Take a look at my gallery to see what I'm good with. Nothing revealing or potentially provocative (bikinis, speedos, short-shorts, underwear,
