Inhuman updated!

this is my first time using dreamwidth's website in a long while, i guess cuz the program i use (semagic) needs some server updates. no biggie.

as kyo wanders out into the rain again this week, im more stoked to talk about some stuff going on in personal life. namely: i FINALLY got all the paperwork insurance wanted/needed sent to the CORRECT DEPARTMENT with regards to starting hormone therapy. now all that's left is to wait a week and a half (haha) to see if this medication which is already on my formulary (list of meds insurance will cover) will be covered. its been a redonk clusterfuck to even -get- to this point, but hopefully once i'm through these last few hoops that'll be it for years.

i've also started working on a hyena costume (cial yeen of course) using a blank base from Crystumes.

here's some progress pics: progression & wip

also: thank you all my patreon patrons for your patience this month especially. there were some SNAFUs with my email, which have been resolved. but SNAFU aside, this last week was World Mental Health day. and being someone with depression, bipolar 2 and PTSD i truly and genuinely appreciate having friends followers and supporters who understand that sometimes it's really difficult to stick to a schedule. or even to socialize. knowing people have empathy for the fact that my brain literally won't function like 'normal' no matter how hard i try? it helps. it matters. it makes it a lot easier to remain functional, knowing that if i speak up about an issue i'm having it won't net me scorn or derision for honesty.

well i should probably wrap this up and check on the cats, since i hear ren pouncing on something in the other room ... it's probably just her tail tho. stay spooky, droogs!

patrons also got inks, but additionally - early access.
if you'd like access to comic pages three days early (wowie!) please check out my patreon. backing for any amount gets you that perk!

in other news i'm going to attempt to make it to the micro massachusetts furcon tonight. i'm not vending, just going to hang out and see the wonderful erin play the piano as she likes to do. but the con is raising money for the Trevor Project which, if you've never heard of them, are a crisis center/hotline for lgbt youth. that's a -really good- organization to raise money for, especially in these times. so if you're local, try to swing by the con and leave a little something in the charity basket!!

beyond that, the weather is nice and autumnal. oh, and if you're a coffee lover? try subscribing to rhetoric coffee. there's a bag coming with my art on it and the blend in it is really choice. ive had it iced, black, white, hot, sugar, no sugar and it's just. a really delish coffee.

and that... is all i have for you this week, my friends. next time i see you we'll be gettin SPOOKY.

yo. patrons got the inks wip, as usual.

texas readers: please take care of yourselves. i wish i had a fortune to give you or a boat to sail to you in. all i can hope is you make it through this safely.

i can't think of much else to say. i registered for Anthro New England 2018, and so i hope i'll be selling there in february. other than that, i've been doing that wonderful tango of mutual loathing and violence that depression always results in. me vs brain, battling it out to the end.

the weather has chilled here, so it's time to get spooky. get spooky, and i'll see you soon.

(and ya, patrons got inks)

picking up right about where we left off... you'll see why soon enough. but kyo's having a real lousy day today.

in the news of the real world, i'm heartened by the massive response to neonazis trying to march in my home state. boston really handled this one well. but i caution anyone against thinking this made them "go home" or "get out". they already are home. these guys didn't travel from some mythical deep south pit. they're locals, too.

bigots are all around you. they live across the street from you. they work beside you. they didn't "go home" they just learned not to spout their garbage beliefs to the city of boston. which hey, that's a really good start. but you need to stand up to them wherever you see them, and that means at work or wherever they may open their bigoted mouths to say something shitty. because you can't "defeat" bigotry.

but what you can do is make bigots afraid to be openly bigoted. make politicians accountable for their bigoted policies and rhetoric. make these fuckers acknowledge they are the minority and that if they don't see others as human, we will not entertain the notion of their voices having value. it's awkward to shut down a bigoted relative saying something shitty. i know. i've done it, a -lot-. it never gets easier, and it's -always- incredibly awkward.

but that's how you combat bigotry. you use your power or privilege (especially if you're white, straight or a man) and you leverage it in such a way as to Shut That Shit Down.

because when you shut them down, those they'd hurt? we start to feel safe, and like you care.
but if you're silent, if you celebrate one small moral victory and declare it "over".... you're creating the exact atmosphere that tells them it's okay to try again. to try harder. to try with slightly different buzzwords, and maybe a few miles from where they tried last time.

don't be complacent
say something
shut that shit down

well sort of. it's cover art. but it's really pretty cover art!

me, i'm pretty tired. i'm running the gauntlet of getting insurance, a doctor's office and a pharmacy to all do their jobs at the same time and get HRT. it's expensive, time consuming and really often frustrating. but that's the state of transgender health care in america. i really want to thank my patrons on patreon for helping make it possible, though.

well. what little energy i have left is goin to work right now. so i'm out of things to really talk about. later y'all.

so this is the last page of arc 15. and that means we're... prolly like two arcs away from the end, max. i alway get a lil sentimental at the end of arcs. so thank you everyone who stuck with the story, or joined reading recently and plan to keep reading. y'all are my reason to keep pushing for artistic improvement!

right now i'm watching wolfen (1981 had no idea how to mix their sound, i guess) and working on patreon rewards. if you've ever wanted me to draw something special just for you, patreon's the place to get that done. alternately if you just wanna show your support, even really small pledges like 1$ a month are a huge difference to me. so now that the arc is closed up, please, consider my patreon.

aside from that i got word from the tshirt vendor that they're doing a sale, so if you wanna buy something here's a coupon for 20% off whatever: inhuman-comic
(and here's a direct link to the tshirt shop)

that's all i got. see you later with cover art!

yo. its gross humid weather here and i had a pretty lousy week so im not really looking forward to writing this entry and so its gonna be SHORT.

the page is up, patreon patrons have some extra stuff like rough maps of what the hovercraft interior looks like. this morning i participated in a raid battle at my local pokemon gym and it was fun. its also very humid, and i havent had coffee.

be strong, be brilliant. until next time.

hey all, i'm feeling pretty pbbth so i'll try to keep this brief.

i added a flash MUD client to the extras that'll connect directly to Sabrous. if you've never tried a MUD before, be prepared to sink a little time - it's a text based mmo, and you need to level up a bit before you can save/chat/etc. but i'm usually on there in the evenings, so if you're looking for a place to chat with me (or join/spectate our group RPs) that'd be your best bet.

i'm also looking into non-flash based clients, since obviously it's not gonna work on most mobile devices. i hope to fix that soon.

apart from that, i've been setting up my 55 gallon fishtank as a new home for my two goldfish. Fish and Friend are about three years old now, and are ready to leave their 10 gallon tank for something bigger. but yesterday when i added a sunken log, i had a surprise.

anyway. that's all i really got. stay hydrated, stay well, resist fascism by any means necessary. i'll see you with the next page soon.

inks for patrons

hello folks. i'm pretty wiped out right now because i just got back from my little sister's wedding shower. which featured like 5 dogs, which is a good number of dogs for a party. now i have 3 months to get a tux that fits the colour theme and a gift because apparently!!! im going to be the one walking her down the aisle!!

which is probably a good a time as any to point out that this entire arc commemorated their wedding. or at least the first half of it did! 'what hte fuck, how. thats inappropriate' u may say.

well yall know i like to literally spell things with my panel shapes sometimes so... maybe you'll see when you go back and look for it! hint: if youre looking at kyo slapping a hexaworm off greys head, youve passed it.

in other news, im working on the shop. the graphics are still a work in progress but the links all work, so maybe check out what's offered yeah?

anyways. that's it for me. i'm about ready to eat dinner and crawl back in bed. see you next page...

what up. i'm really tired because we just finished off a major family weekend (my cousin's baby shower) and i just slept for a thousand years. i feel like i could sleep for about a thousand more, too.

it's been a productive few weeks, though part of that may be me. i recently got dignosed with THE BIPOLAR (type 2) so now any time i go into a period of overwork or BURNING NEED TO BE ACTIVE im like wait is this Just Me, or is this Mania happening. oh well. who CARES. not ME. especially since it's type 2 which is the like less in-your-face form.

i brought home a lot of paper hanging flower decorations and gave them to the cats. now they have some more things to shred and crinkle with in the dead of night. good times.

okay i need my coffee. see you next page, and in the meantime, consider becoming a patron!

and if you're not a patron yet, please, i'm urging you - check out my patreon! you'll be able to get custom art by me there, and also early sneak peeks into comic work. it'd mean a lot to me if you'd support my work!

i'm very tired and america is more on fire than usual. kind of a downer. but the weather is getting nicer, and that's a plus.

sorry for the long delay there guys. quite honestly, the last month was noooot a party. i went from having food poisoning one week to a full on psychotic episode the next week complete with a trip to the ER. so i'm extremely grateful to yall for being patient with me, and i really hope the page doesn't disappoint!

i do wanna give another shout-out to merlin tho. she really came through in a pinch... and we both wound up hospital buddies (not in the same hospital, or for the same reason at all) and she -still- pulled off a page for me. that. is true speed and skill.

i'm pretty well recovered now though! been planting lots of stuff in our yard and garden, cleaning up porcupine bones for display and painting/finishing up the guest room (which i have been meaning to do for YEARS) and other household things. next month weekends are mostly occupied by family events (baby showers, wedding showers) but i always feel rejuvinated when the weather gets nicer.

anyhoo... patrons got inks and also writing notes for this whole fight scene so far. in all likelyhood i'll add thumbnails later, because i did a -lot- of versions of this page before i finally settled.

oh yeah, and please!! consider backing my friend Iris Jay's queer tarot comic anthology! it's gonna be aaaaaawesoooooome

Inhuman updated... sorta

so it's our traditional april fools. i had intended to do one myself, but then well. the whole food poisoning thing happened. i'm recovering from that still, so the extremely prolific and talented merlin stepped up and delivered...honestly what i think might be my fav april fools comic to date, tbh.

thank you merlin!! you're a hero and a saint. i owe you, bigtime.

(and yep yep patrons have inks)

i haven't a lot to say this week except for two things. first:

my longtime friend has a game on greenlight! it's a spooky puzzle speed game called GRAVE CHASE and if you could give it a vote to help it thru greenlight, that'd be Awesome.

second: i don't show it off much, but as a reminder, the inhuman Black Market store has patches and stickers not available in the main shop.

okay that's all i got. keep resisting.

(and patrons got the inks)

first off - sorry for the late blog post. i was feeling pretty poorly this weekend. mix of physical and mental symptoms, but i kinda just updated the site proper and was like THATS IT IM LYING DOWN FOR HOURS ON END. so the page was there, but not on... every other site?

anyway. people have been asking what's taking so long with pages lately. honestly it's a mix of things. scrambling to survive The Fourth Reich is one major factor. it being winter in new england is another. plain ol depression is a third. a fourth is that january was both my birthday month -and- my convention month... and the fifth is that i'm finally starting to schedule things so i can eventually get a reaffirming surgery i need.

overall its just a m e s s
but i'm doing my best to get pages out and created as often as possible.

in my downtime i've been trying to organize a full global pokedex in sun-moon without the aid of a national dex which is a VAST UNDERTAKING. but i'm almost done! save for a few legendaries and a couple trade evs, im good to go! not that the game gives you anything, i just... think it'll be neat to have all the mons.

that's all i got, honestly. please remember to add your representitive to your contacts list and call them on The Regular to keep them aware of your feelings on the state of things (if you're an american, that is) and don't forget to make nazis afraid to show their faces.

stay strong, stay resiliant. resist.

patrons of course got inks this week

so hey here we are in 2017. its lookin like a real fight. so heres a tool to fight with for fellow americans. call your reps at -least- once a week, and once a day if you can. voice your support of ACA, voice your opposition to the appointment of neonazis in government. its a good tool, because calling really does make a difference and it's something you can do even if you don't live in a city or are able to get to protests.

other than that - i will be at Anthro New England in boston this weekend. i hope to see some people, and if you're a patreon patron i have a 5% discount for you uh... as long as you play with a card, because i'm really bad at math.

good luck out there, everyone.

and ya ya of course patrons got inks

but i only have a few minutes before the sun goes down, and its the first night of hannukah tonight, so im going to mostly just copy paste what i wrote earlier!!

first: if you could throw some Goodwill towards creatures of earth in the direction of my friend's really sweet old cat Suppi? that'd be the best gift i could ask for.

second: i'd like to take this moment, though, to thank all of my patrons who supported me through 2016. you have made an extremely significant impact on my quality of life. while things may seem bad right now, 2016 overall was a really good year. i was able to work on the house. i was able to expand into making patches, more stickers, and another print issue of the comic. i never once worried between food and paying mortgage. and that is entirely, entirely thanks to my wonderful patrons.

even though stuff is rough, i am sure that if we move forward together - everyone giving a little help to one another, just like my patrons did for me - we can survive, thrive, and work on fixing this broke ass planet we call earth.

til next page, droogs

it's been a very long november were i'm scrambling to secure my rights as a human being. passport application is in, i'm moving to try to get medical transition therapy asap, and we're trying (with a lot of wonderful ppls support) to switch out our old oil heater for water out for an electric water heater. it's. been kind of rough and very expensive. but what can you do. shockingly, being poor is expensive.

uhm. well the new site is up and its beautiful?? please go look at it. please: look at the glory

why does my entire family want to hang out in the middle of winter when i live in new england. why

ok............ i love you all. hang in there. call your reps, protest fascism. i'm literally depending on you to help save people like me.

okay so. stuff has not gone well for me and mine. the canidate who wants to criminalize my existance and strip me of my rights has won the presidential election. bigots have immediately been emboldened towards hostile action... though this far north, so far, it has consisted only of passive aggressive looks and shameful avoidance.

but let me tell you something: i am with you. i support you. i believe in you, and i will fight for you. we are stronger together. i got your back.
if you need a temp safe house in Alabama, i know one.
if you need a civil rights lawyer and live in CA or MA, i know one.
if you just need an old trans man to listen to your woes or help you through paperwork (get it done now, they're going to make it MUCH more difficult soon) feel free to reach out to me.

in the meantime, here's some resources i've compiled.

-getting your medication cheaper
-writing to your legislators attempting to overturn the electoral college projected vote/ support the popular vote
-resources for trans people who need to change their name/gendermarker & sources for $ to do it
-give to organizations that will resist this facist reich

don't listen to people who tell you it's going to all be okay. that is their privilege speaking. for those of us who trump has sworn to criminalize based on our nationality, our sexuality, our religion, our gender identity or our ethnicity this will Not be okay, especially if people lie down and complacently accept what is happening. what this bloated orange fungal rot has proposed violates the first, fourth, fifth, eighth and fourteenth ammendments.

we MUST fight. we MUST resist. and we must be brave, visible, vigilant and keep eachothers backs.

as one of the people affected, though, i do still need to make a living. i realize this is a very awkward transition, but i don't really have a good one. the image below leads to a link that lets you preorder new inhuman things (including book #2 and stickers) coming soon to the site/shop. i really implore you to use it, because there are some uncertain times ahead and i could use the help as much as the next poverty-level queer person living in a country where our leaders have been endorsed by the kkk.

you can also contribute to my patreon. that helps me a lot, it truly does.

i have until january 20th until my dissent becomes actively dangerous.
but until then, and after then until it is safe again, i'm flying my flag inverted in distress.

he is #notmypresident
stand together, fight together. resist facism.
