#HisameNews from May \(^o^)/

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!

Hisame Artwork

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 linkwe 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!

Youtube notification | Friday is #HisameReview

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. (^_~)
Take care,
Hisame

Thank you for supporting me and my projects!

I am now on Patreon!

Yu! Hu ! I am super happy , Patreon is now international!

The goal is : to make a video game with Ernest the Blue Bunny

Patreon cover_money-01

For this I have to raise enough money to make at least one of the two games I have planned for Ernest.  Depending on your support we will decide together as a community what games you want. The money raised will go toward paying the programmer (and buy sound effects is necessary) as I will do all the graphics for this: sprites, GUI, background etc.

You can select what amount you want to pledge each month or just give one donation and the rewards differ depending on the amount. It’s my first time using Patreon so if there are any issues message me and we will fix it!

Also you should get this thank you message once you’ve become a patron :

supporter thank you

You guys know I always listen to you and you’ve always loved and supported my work, and so I  thank you so much for all your support so far and don’t forget to use the hashtag #HisameOCL to see what new events and prizes I have for you! No matter what channel you follow me on I give out prizes at all my milestones (^_~)

Together we’re growing!

Hugz,

Hisame

Ernest and Coraline are now in New Hampshire

Only 11 states left, here is the illustration for New Hampshire. “In January 1776 it became the first of the British North American colonies to establish a government independent of Great Britain’s authority, although it did not declare its independence at the time. Six months later, it became one of the original 13 states that founded the United States of America, and in June 1788 it was the ninth state to ratify the United States Constitution, bringing that document into effect. New Hampshire was the first U.S. state to have its own state constitution.”

Ernest and Coraline are now in Connecticut

Today I did Connecticut which was a bit tricky since I couldn’t decide on what to feature out of the many tourist attractions and historical monuments. In the end I decided to pay a little tribute to the marine conservation efforts and their lovely aquarium.

I have only 12 states left to illustrate and after that I’m happy to announce that I will launch the sticker collection book with all the states!Connecticut-01
