Happy New Year!

Hope you had a nice time this end of year, and we wish you a awesome new year in 2018!

new year Ernest the blue bunny hisame artwork

We’ve had a good year and reached most of the milestones we set for our selves so we want to take this opportunity to thank you, the fans for all your support!

And since it’s a new year I thought this would be a great time to share this with you. Some of you have already seen similar guides before, others have not.

ernest the blue bunny hisame artwork indie comics

So just a reminder of how the industry works and why supporting your favorite indie artists is so important. They usually don’t have safety nets and do this out of passion. And at the end of this year I have seen many artists give up or get burned out and I must say the thought of closing up shop has passed my mind too, but I have people around me who still support me and so, I am still here. ^_^

So for those that don’t know these things, please have this list in mind next time you see your favorite artist post your beloved content.

Have a lovely day and hugz!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Halloween is my favorite holiday so for this Niels Feynman holidays special I added some extra easter eggs and references from the genera of cosmic horror and sci-fi as well as other artworks of mine. Hope you enjoy and I wish you the best!

So I like to keep my holiday specials detached temporal from the main story line so that I can showcase funny events and characters that will appear in future comic issues.

In the upper left we have the Mendls, cousins of Alfred Feynman, Niel’s dad. The family tree is available to my Patreon supporters, so if you wish to support us financially you will get access to extra content and behind the scenes materials.  They are costumed as the gods Odin and Kali, the original superheros so to speak and  Alfred is just wearing a Halloween pumpkin sweater. You can also see uncle Aubrey Mendl giving Marie a chocolate muffin which shouldn’t be much of an issue since Marie is a cyborg corgi and is much tougher than a normal dog. Also can you guess as what famous dog she’s dressed as?

On the upper right I drew the O’Haras, their family will appear in the comic story where Niels goes back in time to visits the famous admiral Zheng He. But more on that once we manage to finish the current story line:  Niels visits Isaac Newton.

Up on the stairs we have Niels costumed as the renowned physicist  Richard Feynman, while Ingrid is costumed as a firefighter and on the last step is Darsha costumed as Mary Jackson, one of  N.A.S.A.’s engineers that helped the Americans win the space race.

Watch on Youtube how we made the illustration.

 

Bellow we have Evangeline and Erwin discussing Erwin’s costume choice. Now I had a lot of fun making this relationship dynamic and referencing G.R.R. Martin and Robert W. Chambers ‘ works. “The King in Yellow” is a cosmic horror figure featured in Lovecraft‘s and Martin’s  works as well and since the action takes place in Cambridge U.K. the most scariest thing to adults is, and probably will continue to be, healthcare bills, hence Erwin’s outfit. Needles to say Eve’s parents who are English don’t find Erwin’s joke funny.

Evangeline is of course dressed as the breaker of chains, the mother  and the most bad-ass female super hero since Artemis and Athena.

As for references to my own work you can see a small ad for a sale on Ernest the Blue Bunny merchandise and a Y.A.N.A. online DLC pack. YANA, Long Feast and LDAD are there series of novels set in steam punk, futuristic and medieval worlds that I’m still working on. The drafts are done and I will polish and publish these books after I finish the Niels Feynman series. So expect a large shared, expansive universe with lots of adventures in the decades to come.

HisameMerch giveaway conclusions

Hi friends! As you may remember from last week Teepublic sponsored my my Black Friday merchandise giveaway. Thank you all for participating, hope you enjoyed it, more giveaway are coming next year so keep your eyes peeled if you want to participate again.

gleam-banner_winner

As a European I can definitely relate to the sucky feeling  of not being eligible for a giveaway from the USA, but I will try to make international giveaways and if have good sales the coming year that will definitely make things easier, so fingers crossed all goes well!

shirt

Jacklyn was kind enough to send us a picture of the shirt she got, and if you’re curious to see the prizes and winners of previous giveaways use my hashtag #HisameOCL on social media to find the posts and pictures.

And thank you again Teepublic for sponsoring my event!

As always I look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions or suggestions on how I can improve the giveaway events feel free to write in the comment section bellow.

Take care,

Hisame!

Ernest origin story is reaching the finale

Hi everyone! You can read the story of how Ernest left Omnivore Metropola met Coraline and became sheriff of Vegan Village on Tapastic.

Ernest the Blue Bunny is my mascot and I got the inspiration for him from a toy I had as a child. He is a good willed little rabbit that enjoys life!

And as the sheriff of Vegan Village his job is to protect everyone and in this series you can find out how he became the bunny you know and love today.
