Seeking Self Published Authors in the North EastWe are looking for writers in the North East of the United States to come to a college in New Jersey for a chance to speak to students, have a question and answer session, sell their books, and then a book signing afterward. Writers will have the chance to advertise their work to a student body with over ten thousand students and their work. Everything would take place during the course of one day.
We are looking for writers who have published or self-published at least one novel, book of short stories, or book of poetry. The writer will need to bring copies of their work to sell at the college on the day of the event. We want to make this an opportunity for published and self-published authors to reach out to a wider audience, sell more of their books, and speak to a young generation of students.
Ideally, we are looking for writers in the nearby area to minimize traveling costs. The events will be held in the time frame of late February or March. The event would be occurring on a week

Updates as of October2009: Missing Halloween's story was created. Discontinued.
2010: Attempted to rework in 3D. Failed. Discontinued.
2013: Revived and started the animation production. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2014: Resumed and held a contest. Didn't reach Halloween. Hiatus.
2015: Resumed. Missing Halloween didn't miss Halloween!
For the past month, me and Negyek were hard at work, day and night, to finish Missing Halloween. Later on, Procrastacat and VenBright were hired to give various voices for the ending scene. All of these are, of course, paid jobs, thanks to my Patreon supporters.
By November 29, the animation is officially done. All 8+ minutes of it.
I’ve realized over the years that I can’t draw everything myself, and I’ve damaged my hands by trying to draw all of my comics on my own. My followers are always asking when the next chapter of Fisheye Placebo or Knite is coming out, and it always pains me to say not yet. I can’t draw for more than a few hours a day now before the pain sets in.
I’m still determined to finish the comics I started, but I know I’m going to need help. I’ve been dabbling in 3D backgrounds for Fisheye Placebo, but I still had to build them myself, which is very time consuming and damaging to my hands in different ways.
I’ve been thinking a lot and I want to move my comic creating techniques to the next level and incorporate both 3D characters and 3D backgrounds. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to 3D programs, and I don’t have the time or health to create all the models myself, so I am looking

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way,
CrimsonColt7 Harassment Warning: SUPER IMPORTANT!!Take a deep breath, this is a LONG post.
There is a guy hunting around deviantArt and has been trying to scam people out of their artwork. He is named CrimsonColt7(I'm trying to avoid tagging him. If he finds this, he has to be searching for it). This guy has an incredibly false sense of entitlement, and if you decline his request, he basically tries to blacklist you on his profile and will harass you.
The point of this is to bring forth a ton of the incriminating evidence of his harassment from other people who have had problems with him. That way, anyone can spread this journal around and hopefully prevent anyone else from falling prey to his scheming.
It will almost always start out exactly like this:
