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.
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!
Hi everyone! A new vlog is ready and in this episode I talk about the event we had yesterday, our fist QuickDrawCollab which was very fun and I’m glad people enjoyed it so much .
I also continued with the format of having a review, a artist spotlight and I answered a question that many people have asked me during me weekly live stream.
If you want to view the recorded QuickDrawCollab click play bellow:
Thanks for watching and if you have anymore questions join our group on Facebook for more information:
Hi! For those of you that don’t know what a #QuickDrawCollab is, here is the summary of it:
It’s an event where a couple of artists get together to quickly draw what the audience asks them. It’s the illustrator’s version of improvised theater, and it can be quite fun if you knows the artists and want your fan-fiction brought to life. It’s a great way to get to know your favorite artists and meet new ones.
I’ve set up a Facebook group, Hisame Artwork Event Center, where we will organize the details for the event. Such as:
– artist streaming
– equipment and streaming test
– links and presentation for participating artists (optional)
So please vote and register there. Everything is free, no financial rewards. It’s just friends getting together and having fun like old times. Most of us met on Tsu and used to hold events like this.
Hope you’ll enjoy and see you there!
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. (^_~)
I stream live every Tuesday and Thursday so I invite you to come see and chat (^_^)
Hope you’re all having a good time, I wish you the best and a good time with your loved ones!
I made some illustrations for you, hope you’ll enjoy them.

If you want to see how the page was done you can watch here on my YouTube channel:
The story follows the adventure of Niels Feynman a half Chinese half Dutch boy, who lives in 24th century Cambridge and who is passionate about science. Niels and his companions, Erwin and Marie, will travel back in time to meet his hero Stephen Hawking at the notorious Time Traveler’s party and from there he will visit Isaac Newton. The main theme of the story is the passion for learning and discovering.
Are you ready for an adventure? You can read it for free here on Tapastic!
The idea for the story came from my husband who is a physicist and an avid gamer. Until we can make this story into a game we offer you a comic to read and get familiar with the characters and the world they inhabit.
On this project my friend Jun Fender is helping me by making the lineart. We stream live the making of the pages and you can find the recordings on Youtube. You can also find tutorials and freebies here on my blog and on Patreon.
If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to leave a comment bellow, we always look forward to your feedback!
So I’ve updated my Youtube channel not just this blog….also check out all the new pages I made here! (^_~)
And great news is that I’m at 35 subscribers and when I reach 100 Yoytube will let me ad an introduction video, cover links aaaand the spotlight feature! That is so cool, can’t wait! I will also do a giveaway then so stay sharp!
So please continue to like and share if you love my work, it helps my channel grow ! \(^o^)/
And for those of you that don’t know here is my schedule.
Yu! Hu ! I am super happy , Patreon is now international!
The goal is : to make a video game with Ernest the Blue Bunny
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 :
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!
Hello followers-subscribers-minions !
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 on Tsu, 2k followers on Facebook, 500 followers on Twitter. So if you follow me on any of these channels lookout for giveaways 😉
