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.

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!

The event consists of a fanart mini contest. All entries get a reward and what is left will be given to the winners at the end of the event on January first 2017! What is awesome about Rabadaba is that we have have our own currency, the ***Rab*** who can be cashed out as real money or most often people use it for games or art requests.

You can read their stories on Tapastic for inspiration. You can do illustrations, cosplay, crossover, inside jokes, there is no limit! Just keep it decent because the stories are for kids after all.

Hugz and I look forward to seeing all of your awesome drawings! If we get a lot of cool drawings I may even make a gallery! \(^o^)/

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!

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.

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.

Q&A: What is Patreon?

Hi, and welcome to my page if you’re new and welcome back if you’re an old follower!

So people have been asking me what is Patreon?!

patreon-logo-new-750x400

Well the answer is :
“Patreon is a crowd-funding platform popular with YouTube content creators, musicians, and webcomic artists. It allows artists to obtain funding from their fans or patrons, on a recurring basis, or per work of art.” – Wikipedia

So Patreon is basically it’s an ongoing Kickstarter, but instead of funding one big project, it finances  the continuous creation of episodic content like  songs, animations and comics.

You can pledge as much as you want per month or just make one donation , and like Kickstarter, different pledges come with different rewards. There are also milestones that will unlock extra content if enough people contribute every month. If you want more information about being a patron, you can check out Patreon’s Patron FAQ.

Here is my page : https://www.patreon.com/HisameArtwork

And my first goal is to raise enough money to hire a programmer to help me make Ernest’s story into an RPG video game. You can read his story here: https://tapastic.com/hisameartwork

Updates on my booklet and Lulu self publishing services

Hello world! My collectible sticker booklet is now on Lulu! Hurrah!

lulu

For those that don’t know Lulu is a company that offers  self publishing services for independent writers. It’a print on demand website for books, calendar and other similar products. It’s also one of the biggest companies in this industry and thus offers the possibility to then sell your book though Amazon and  Barnes n Noble.

lulu

While I like the awesome services it offers, prices are not the best and the site is full of bugs and customer support is overwhelmed so don’t expect much  help or any help from there.

I’m currently looking into other companies to see what other possibilities I have while I wait for my booklet to get into Amazon which will take between 6 to 8 weeks.

See the representational video for the booklet here:

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to contact me or leave your thoughts in the comments bellow.

Thanks for reading and wish you all an awesome day!

Updates on Farmopoly the board game

As you may know I’ve been working on a board game named Farmopoly. I’ve always liked Monopoly type games and strategy games in general so I created this board game in its spirit.
board game
It has it’s slots with different themes to help kids get acquainted with different types of animals and governmental organizations: mammals, birds, vegetarian, carnivores, monarchy, federations etc. You have the fun of a classic monopoly game but with small differences so it resembles a year on a farm and the work that that implies.

board game_pt-01-01

As my Tsu followers already know I’ve been holding giveaways to reward my growing following on  this awesome platform which rewards financially  original content creators. So for those that don’t know the prize is a character withing the Ernest the Blue Bunny world and this giveaway is only for Tsu users.  Following me there is free and there are only two character giveaways left .
