Happy new year!

Hi everyone and Happy New year! Hope you are all doing well! I wish you all a good year.

I know some of us have had it tough and we wished we had less bad luck, because sometimes your best is not good enough when too many issues pile up.

Some may think they have the best advice for you, how they would have foreseen or had been better prepared than you, I don’t think they say these out of malice but I just wanted to tell you something since I mostly see people giving poorly researched advice, and what I want to say is:

You probably did your best, nobody wants to fail on purpose, I think that is universal. If you explained to me what happened I’d probably understand, though I would also judge you because using  your judgement is generally a good thing. If all the people in the world had full bellies and rested heads our ability to make good judgement calls would be much better.

So don’t forget to take care of yourself if you can, I know it can be a lot to remember when everything is so busy and we’re constantly exhausted.

The reason I made Ernest was to share a bit of cozy comfort. He can keep a secret and you can tell him everything and his new year resolution is to be better pal for you and listen to your troubles, because in the end we’re all looking for a bit of sympathy and understanding. Even when we totally mess up and do every stupid thing we were told not to, it probably seemed like a good idea at the time.

That was my two cents on new year resolutions and I wish you the best!

In other updates:

I finished my little trilogy Estranged encounter, if there is more demand for those types of stories I may ad more as I always have ideas for that type of bizarre narrative.

New Niels Feynman story pages coming up in two weeks and I’ve begun to look for representation for all my stories so in the upcoming months I’ll be looking  for a literary agent…or more, I write different genres and mediums so I’ll probably need more than one, not sure how this stuff works, but wish me luck!

Also I opened a discord server. After much deliberation I decided to get with the times and make my own discord server and hopefully create a cozy place for artists to get together, share and learn new skills.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone!

Halloween is my favorite holiday so for this Niels Feynman holidays special I added some extra easter eggs and references from the genera of cosmic horror and sci-fi as well as other artworks of mine. Hope you enjoy and I wish you the best!

Read on Tapas for free

So I like to keep my holiday specials detached temporal from the main story line so that I can showcase funny events and characters that will appear in future comic issues.

In the upper left we have the Mendls, cousins of Alfred Feynman, Niel’s dad. The family tree is available to my Patreon supporters, so if you wish to support us financially you will get access to extra content and behind the scenes materials.  They are costumed as the gods Odin and Kali, the original superheros so to speak and  Alfred is just wearing a Halloween pumpkin sweater. You can also see uncle Aubrey Mendl giving Marie a chocolate muffin which shouldn’t be much of an issue since Marie is a cyborg corgi and is much tougher than a normal dog. Also can you guess as what famous dog she’s dressed as?

On the upper right I drew the O’Haras, their family will appear in the comic story where Niels goes back in time to visits the famous admiral Zheng He. But more on that once we manage to finish the current story line:  Niels visits Isaac Newton.

Up on the stairs we have Niels costumed as the renowned physicist  Richard Feynman, while Ingrid is costumed as a firefighter and on the last step is Darsha costumed as Mary Jackson, one of  N.A.S.A.’s engineers that helped the Americans win the space race.

Watch on Youtube how we made the illustration.

 

Bellow we have Evangeline and Erwin discussing Erwin’s costume choice. Now I had a lot of fun making this relationship dynamic and referencing G.R.R. Martin and Robert W. Chambers ‘ works. “The King in Yellow” is a cosmic horror figure featured in Lovecraft‘s and Martin’s  works as well and since the action takes place in Cambridge U.K. the most scariest thing to adults is, and probably will continue to be, healthcare bills, hence Erwin’s outfit. Needles to say Eve’s parents who are English don’t find Erwin’s joke funny.

Evangeline is of course dressed as the breaker of chains, the mother  and the most bad-ass female super hero since Artemis and Athena.

As for references to my own work you can see a small ad for a sale on Ernest the Blue Bunny merchandise and a Y.A.N.A. online DLC pack. YANA, Long Feast and LDAD are there series of novels set in steam punk, futuristic and medieval worlds that I’m still working on. The drafts are done and I will polish and publish these books after I finish the Niels Feynman series. So expect a large shared, expansive universe with lots of adventures in the decades to come.

Hugz,

The #TenStyleChallenge art event

Hisame Artwork
Go to our Facebook group

Hi everyone! I’m happy to share with you updates from our art event #TenStyleChallenge.  And for those of you who don’t know the event, here is the gist of it: make self portraits in someone else’s style.

Hisame Artwork ten style challenge #tenstylechallenge

It’s an event held all over the internet where artists make self portraits in popular cartoon style such as  “The Simpsons” or “Sailor Moon”.  But for our little art group we did it in the styles of the artists there so that we can promote the awesome artists we have in our group and also make fun of our faces and suffering while trying to do a style very different from our own.

#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.

Click on the image to go to her comic.

 

 

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!

 

 

 

#HisameNews for April \(^o^)/

Hi everyone!

It’s been a busy time for me, I haven’t had the time to do a vlog like I promised, sorry. Still I know some of you wanted to keep in touch and since we all have our lives, it’s difficult. Kids, health problems, family problems, miscellaneous problems. In the end I wanted to thank all you you who have helped me and continue to help me. I know some of you can’t anymore, hope you get well soon and see better days. Hugz!

 

For those that want to stay in the loop but have only 3min to read things here is the summary:

  • I think I found a programmer for my Ernest origin story RPG, but for now we’re doing a smaller game to improve our game developing muscles and after that we’ll see if we can do the RPG.

  • And last but not least I’ve opened a shop on Itch.io and uploaded some freebies there. I will continue to upload some more stuff there as well as the games when they are done. I think it’s easier to find my stuff there than on Patreon. Let me know which format you prefer. I prefer using Patreon because it’s easier for me to keep track and give you your rewards when donating. You can donate to me on Itch just like on Twitch.

Wish you a happy Easter, hugs!
