Milestones and rewards

Rewards HisameOCL

Welcome to my blog!

I’m happy to announce I just received a bunch of game keys for you lovely people to ad as milestones rewards!!! \(^w^)/ So be sure to follow and comment, if you haven’t already, on my social media to help me reach those milestones faster.

So this is where I’m usually active and which milestones are coming up next, as well as what I’d like to give:
* Twitch 100 followers……….1 game key
* Twitch each subscriber…… gets  1 game key (total of 5 are available atm) and you unlock my Twitch emojies as long as you are subbed.
* Tapas 500 subs……………… 3 avatar doodles
* Youtube 1k followers………1 game key + 10 avatar doodles
* Twitter 1k followers ……….1 game key + 10 avatar doodles
* Instagram 3k followers…..1 game key + 10 avatar doodles
* Facebook 3k followers……1 game key + 10 avatar doodles

I never know what the future brings and what may happen, but in principle this is what I’d love to gift you as a thank you for supporting me. Also remember that unclaimed rewards will be given to someone else. Claiming time is usually 2 weeks.

In the case of multiple rewards they will be split between the winners. As always the winners will be selected at random from among those who apply to the event. (To participate you’ll need to be subbed/following and comment according to the event requirements)

** Patreon 50$ total support >> extra rewards aside from the usual tier rewards: 1 game key + avatar doodles  for ≥10$ patrons & ++ stickers ≥20$. These will be given without any lottery.

In regards to what game keys will be given, I still need to sort out through the keys and once I do that I’ll be able to tell you more.

Happy New Year!

Hi everyone!

It’s been a long time since I posted anything here. Between changing continents, getting sick and starting a new job, my online presence had to take a back seat. I also have a new cat. 😻

Image may contain: cat and indoor

But personal news aside my art projects continue and I have a bunch of new plans and projects on the way, as old ones get concluded, we’re moving forward. As always check the Projects page to see what is happening to your favorite series, as I will be updating that soon.

In “short”:
Niels book 1 will end in 2-3 months, then hiatus while we work on concept art for the next books in the series. Jun will continue to make the lineart and we are looking for someone to help with the backgrounds. Email me for  details after we figure out the budget and follow this blog for news on that.

Ghibli town mod, official work will start after I finish the Niels book. So far, me, Trent and the rest have done some artwork and coding for it. Super happy Mermaid island worked so well, we’re looking forward to expanding to a full city. Mancer has kindly offered to make the music for it.

– Ernest and Erwin mini games are in the pipeline as well. We’ll start small with some side scrollers and puzzles and depending on the resources we have both time and money, we’ll let you know what gets done this year. Hopefully at least 1.

– I’m currently teaching manga and japanese courses at local art studios. But I do plan to finish the online tutorial series Team Mana UP has so graciously sponsored, and I do apologize that it got delayed. I’m really hoping to properly set up my mini recording studio soon. Renovating in winter is painfully slow.

– Don’t forget to continue supporting us at Kofi or the other usual platforms, as the more resources we have the more we can do and faster. And let us know what your biggest favorites are by subbing to the favorite series, leaving comments etc. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, as they say. And discord link: https://discord.gg/Q5MeNHX

Cheers!

Lulu book P.O.D. company| Friday is #HisameReview

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.

So I’ve started work on publishing my science themed calendar on Lulu.com, the print on demand book publishing company.

They have good prices from what I’ve seen so far, and occasionally offers free shipping. But they are a nightmare to work with if you are  a new publisher, like me. Support is non-existent and their help pages don’t work sometimes, you’ll get a 404 error. It’s a huge website and company and I think they are understaffed. I’ve gotten my orders mixed with someone else, but they fixed that in a very professional and automated way. You’ll only get no-reply mails to notify you of issues and updates, so not much human contact.

But when I’m done publishing, those of you who have expressed your desire to own a copy of my calendar, you will be able to have the calendar delivered at home at half the price I can make it with my printer and maybe even with free shipping if you make an account with with Lulu.

Hurrah! I just became a Teepublic affiliate

HisameArtwork Facebook

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!

HisameArtwork 2

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 Society6 gives 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

HisameArtwork Twitter

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!

I’m happy to announce the test was a success!

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!
book preview

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!
