Last week, cartoonist Rachel Dukes posted some eye-opening statistics to her Tumblr about a comic she made about what life as a cat owner is like. She originally published the comic with a copyright notice and a URL to her website. That version of the comic has been seen about 81,600 times.
Another version, from which someone removed the URL and copyright info, has been seen nearly 600,000 times, mostly on Tumblr and Facebook. This problem of lack of credit is one that lots of artists have dealt with and quite a few have talked about over the past several years, but it continues to persist. It makes me wonder if there could be some kind of fix.
THANKS TO YOUR SUPPORT WE HAVE JUST DONATED $305.00 TO THE CANADIAN RED CROSS’S TYPHOON HAIYAN FUND!!!!
Everyone’s packages have been packed and will be shipped over the next 3 days (I can’t carry all of them in one go lol). Thank you all very much for your generous donations and purchases!
You are all wonderful, bless you all.
Go there, and do as the instructions say.
When my art was stolen, I got the post reported, and it was taken down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too.
Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.
And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.
Will do from now on
assguardian, @loweryourvolume, @frappy !!
please keep your ask boxes open over the next few days so I may contact you for your mailing addresses. Congrats and merry xmas!
Hi guys, and new followers despite my super inactivity…!
I don’t think I ever addressed the inactivity on this tumblr, I’m really sorry for practically disappearing! I’m still drawing a lot, it’s just all fanart (hetalia) so I’m mostly active on that sideblog right now. I’ve been met with a bit of hostility in regards to being a fan of aph so that’s partially why I’ve been mostly quiet about it on this tumblr even though there’s stuff I wanted to reblog stuff over here to share ;;
There’ve been/will be some pretty big changes to my life recently, like I’m getting implants for my eyes in about 2 weeks and am both thrilled and terrified??!?! So I’ve been really busy with that as well fefffffffgngnngn ok mostly excited because GOODBYE GLASSES
I feel a bit guilty that I’m not posting any art here so I’ve paused personal posts as well for that reason OTL
Not that there’s been anything worth posting lately
To give you guys an idea of what’s going on in regards to purchases:
I will try to update more frequently (or maybe reblog stuff from sideblogs lol) and thanks for stickin’ around!!! smooch
Hi there! I’ve not used any of these printers personally but these are resources I have on hand:
This is a copy-and-paste from a previous ask I answered:
If you’re looking into making artbooks/comics/doujinshis self-publishing is a great place to start! The girls over at LoveLoveHill are very experienced self-publishers and have made a BUNCH of really great guides on getting started on making your own zines/books!
For your reference:

If any of these helped, let the LLH collective know! They’re the most helpful and supportive group of/for self publishers I know :)
I hope this helps!!!
As soon as I can! They’re still being printed right now and saico is compiling all the addresses for me in the meanwhile. Keep in mind I’ll be the only person addressing/packaging/sending out over 200 books so it might take a while before they’re all out but we are working as fast as we can to get the books to you!!
For all the books that are at current time still available!
For the status of what’s been sold and how to buy/donate, please refer to this link!
thanks so much!
I’ve been thinking of doing this because I am moving soon and can’t bring many books/things with me. As much as it sucks that I have to part with more books and stuff I hope it will be a win-win situation for everyone involved (I get to give these away, money will be donated, people get goodies, yay). I may or may not do a second batch in a few months but I figured if I am going to donate all proceeds, I should do it ASAP, so here it is!

OK so I’ve been cleaning out my closet and putting aside all these clothes for donation and then I came across these three shirts, all have only been worn once or twice or in the case of the MGS one, tried on once (the size sticker is still on the shirt even) and I was like oh hey if I send these out to people near the beginning of December they should arrive just on time for Christmas. So I’m going to hold a giveaway for these, MERRY XMAS TUMBLR!!!!
Since tumblr no longer lets you fetch all the notes from a single post this is going to be a little troublesome, sorry, augh, here’s how to participate.

That’s it and have fun!
