So as the month of May comes to an end here are some of the awesome things we did so far and we have plenty more planned for June!
I published my “How Ernest met Coraline” comic on Itch. You can download the .pdf from there. I’ve included some world lore and coloring pages for you.
Itch also has a donate button if you want to support my work. Any help is much appreciated. For more more substantial donations you can use Patreon to also claim rewards like merchandise and custom art.
This month we held our second #QuickDrawCollab live stream event and we will be doing another at the end of June. If you don’t know what the event is you can read here: QDC explained.
You can join our Facebook group: Hisame Artwork Event Center for schedule and application. Anyone can join as streaming artists long as they have internet and can draw. If you just want to be a spectator here is the live stream link, we will be taking requests from the audience like last times.
We also did our first #HisameBookWeek in our Facebook group. It was a week in which we did:
– Self publishing tips & tricks
– Writing and drawing tutorials
– Publisher reviews
– Promos for indies
– Fan recommendations
This time around we featured Britney Mizumi‘s comic and more comics will be featured in next events. Anyone can submit, just keep it family friendly and mark it as NSFW if it is adult.

And last but not least a bit of bragging on my part. I got featured in the LifeSayso emagazine, which I encourage you to go check it out.
Thanks for reading and take care!
I touched on several topics, let me know what you think of the vlog format. If you want it longer or if this is ok for you.
I stream live every Tuesday and Thursday so I invite you to come see and chat about self publishing, art and hobbies.

News and support
I really like how the notification system works on YouTube. The way the video recommendation system works is in the favor of the creator much more than it is on Facebook, where I’m constantly reminded I have to give them money or no one will see my posts. At least Twitter is more discreet about this. I can follow my favorite content creators much better on YouTube than on other platforms.
And I’ve had many fans complain about how they can’t keep in touch with me on Facebook, Rabadaba, Instagram etc. , because so many platforms are really bad at maintain relationships between people. So I’ve decided to finally do a 5 to 10 minute vlog series to keep people up to date with my events, giveaways and project progress.
Hope you like the format, let me know if have are suggestions for improvement. (^_~)

Hi everyone! I’m happy to announce that I’ll be reopening commissions once I reach 1k followers on Tsu! If you didn’t already know, Tsu is a social platform that rewards original content and its creators similar to how Youtube and Tapastic do. So join me there for exclusive content and prizes.
I’ll also be setting up my Twitch Alerts so you can support me by donating as well, this will go into funding my upcoming video game , a RPG with Ernest the Blue Bunny . I will use your help in paying the programmer. Until then you can just go to Tsu and donate there. There will also be a support program on Twitch to reward your dedication by means of giveaways for milestones reached in the pledge program.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Wish you the best,
The parents loved my collectible book and said they would buy this for their kids and most importantly the kids picked it up and started reading, not just looking at the pictures!
I’m really happy about this and I’ve sent some copies to elementary school teachers to get their feedback as well and while I wait I’ll be looking for some publishing companies to see what they can offer. I’ve been asked if I’ll make this into a app which I’ve considered but don’t know yet because of the costs so I’ll have to read on that too.
Till then I’d like to share with you this preview and hope you’ll enjoy it. I’ll be posting a filmed presentation of it soon because a lot of people didn’t seem to understand what it was until they had it their hands. Just a quick recap it’s a : collectible sticker book designed to help kids learn about the history and geography of the USA while having fun collecting the illustrations like trading cards.
I wish you all a great day!
