I’m happy to announce we’re close to celebrating our first anniversary! 🐱🐶👦 🕘🌍 I’ve started publishing the redrawn version on Tapas on the 1st of October last year.
And all the people who have helped in supporting our comic are invited to sign our illustration after I’m done coloring it! It will be published on Tapastic and in the chapter two comic issue so we have something to remember all of you by. Thank you for all your help! It means a lot to us and we’re very happy you’ve enjoyed our comic so far. We hope to continue to entertain you always. 💖
Hi everyone! I’ve recently updates and enabled a lot of the art prints in my Society6 shop. S6 has made more items available for print so I’ve enabled and updated a lot of my best sellers there. Let me know if I missed a print you wanted and I will make it available.
Hope you are having a lovely summer. We had some floods were I am and it’s pretty cold now and I know some of you are deign of the heat wave and exams and jobs and so on but we’re still holding the #ColorMeCollab \(^o^)/ to hopefully brighten your day and give you something relaxing to do.
This round is one me. I made this illustration for a fan of mine, she won the artwork in one of my #HisameOCL art giveaway events. And I’m currently at 2 Facebook likes or 14 Youtube subs away from starting a new Hisame Original Character Lottery. You can go and bump up the numbers if you want to speed up the event start, if you haven’t liked or subscribed already. (~_^)
And you can join our Facebook group to take part in the event or just check out how we colored the linearts. There really aren’t any rules to this, just fun! And anyone can join.
Hi everyone! I’m organizing a mini #HisameOCL every Monday on Tapastic to reward those who have been tipping me there.
– Anyone can join and 100 coins are worth 1 entry.
– When you reach 5.000 coins tipped you automatically get a sketch, avatar or doodle, if you never won.
– I will select a winner every Monday and you can participate every week.
– Check my Tapastic walland social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter to see if you have won and claim your prize.
If you don’t know how to get coins here is a little tutorial:

Ok so this week I’m reviewing the new tipping feature from Tapastic and conclusion is:
Bellow I’ve made a little visual tutorial to hopefully better explain to you how it works:
And bellow you can see the tips GamerCat‘s creator is making in Tapastic, I love GamerCat so I’m super happy to be supporting Samantha Whitten (the creator). All tips are public and you can’t tip yourself but you can tip others. The tipping feature is only available on the app version of Tapastic.
Hope I’ve answered your questions, but if you have more questions feel free to ask!
And thank you very much to all those who have tipped me, it is a great help to get these tips. Now I can finish all the projects I have faster and keep going with future projects as well.
Every Friday I feature some of the products, services and machines I use in my projects. Let’s help each other find the best things for our hobbies or businesses! \(^o^)/ Use #HisameReview to find more recommendations and #HisameMerch to find more of my merchandise.
This week I featured the unboxing my proof copies from Lulu. And if you have any questions or suggestions feel free to share them in the comments bellow.
Hi everyone! So I’m happy to announce that I was just made a Teepublic affiliate. All these banners were made by them especially for me!
For those of you that don’t know, Teepublic is a print on demand service provider and part of the CollegeHumor and Vimeo group. They have apparel, office merchandise and art prints on various types of canvas.
Now what is an affiliate you may ask? Well it’s an artist invited to join the affiliate program and if he joins he’ll get extra visibility though their “featured artist” section (and you do need to have min. 15 prints to apply for that)…aaand if you’re the artist in question, most importantly, you get an additional 11% from your sales on top of the 20% you get by default.
So that is a 30% cut , who gives you more? I know Society6gives me 10% for merchandise and I can set my rate for the big art prints and they have discount events and art events so I’m happy with them.
RedBuuble on the other hand you can set the cut how much you want for all prints, it will just increase the base price. Also Redbubble doesn’t do much of anything to promote artists…no featured list, no curators, they don’t police for art thieves and don’t even get me started on Zazzle and Etsy…and there is more but I’ll rant another time. This post is about Teepublic and
get this, the T-shirts are 14$! So the extra cut you get as a creators doesn’t mean higher prices for the consumer as the T-shirts are cheaper than what is the normal price for these in the west. I’ve only seen lower prices for P.O.D. companies in Asia where a T-shirt I design can be 8$ without my cut or 10% cut but the shipping for custom items is big from there to here so it depends where you live. Conclusion of this horrible horrible math: Teepublic is a good deal.
And an extra bit of good news is that on top of the “3 days new print discount” they also organize site-wide discounts periodically. So subscribe to the newsletter so you don’t miss the extra discounts!
Either you’re a designer yourself or one of my fans, you can get your loved ones some personalized merchandise at your doorstep.
Take care everyone and if you have any questions, feel free to write them in the comment section bellow.
As promised I’ve reopened commissions and here is my price list for this summer. In autumn prices may rise since this is an early access price and discounts are currently only for my Tsu followers. But I will give away some art when I reach my milestones on my other social media accounts so use the hashtag #HisameOCL to find what I made available on your favorite platform!
And commissions will be streamed live: Tue. & Thu. 3-5 pm. (Michigan USA time, which is GMT-5h) on these three streaming channels:

I’m offering these discounts to reward my followers for all their support over the months. For those that don’t know Tsu gives add revenue, so your support really counts. Sharing, following, likening and commenting helps content creators, because it gives them a little cash.

For those that are new, know that I give away merchandise and illustrations for my followers and or subscribers from my various social media channels as a thank you for their continued support. Thank you ! Your are awesome and your support means a lot to me!
In the past I’ve given T-shirts, books, stickers, badges, fridge magnets, paintings, digital illustrations , discount keys for the shop and so on. Use the hashtag #HisameOCL to find out what has been and what is current.
So at the moment I need to get to 100 subscribers on Youtube in order to get the better layout for my channel so I will be giving away something when that happens. Feel free to make suggestions for gifts. They will be awarded randomly so you have to be a current subscriber and respond when you win, otherwise , the prize will have to be given to someone else.
Other approaching milestones : 1k followers onTsu, 2k followers on Facebook, 500 followers on Twitter. So if you follow me on any of these channels lookout for giveaways 😉
