Hope you had a nice time this end of year, and we wish you a awesome new year in 2018!
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.
Hi everyone! I’m playing games on #Rabadaba, if you’re not on RABADABA yet, you can join for free anytime. It’s a social media platform like Instagram and Twitter where you get payed for your activity and content. 🎨 🎮 🎤 🎂 📸 📹 🖌 🖍 📝
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.
Also #ThankYou to all my Rabadaba followers for all the donations, so far I saved 82k Rabs and I’m giving it all away!!! So you will get 1k Rabs for each fanart you make, of my characters and be sure to use the hashtag #HisameFanart so I can find it easily.
I will select 3 winners: 1 for Hisame world lore knowledge, 1 for popular vote and 1 personal pick! I will announce the winners starting January, I’ve pushed the date a bit because many people are busy these days but still want to take place in the event 😀
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^)/
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.
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.
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.

And for those of you that don’t know here is my schedule.
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?!
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.
Hello world! My collectible sticker booklet is now on Lulu! Hurrah!
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.
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!
So I’m summing up in this post the milestones and rewards that are going to come.
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 😉
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.
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.
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 .
See here details for past winners and how you can win your very own original character within the E.B.B. world !
