Commission Special: Shipping Ships

I'm expecting a big tax return, but it might take another 20 days to arrive. In the meantime, we're so short on funds that we have to choose between diapers and food. I do owe a couple commissions already- don't worry AlexX, I'm about to get started on your pic! - but I have a fun idea for some spe…

Nixie's Commission stream!

It seems Patreon is running it's billing cycle a bit late this month. I don't know how late it's going to be, but I'm running out of time to get funds for keeping my son in daycare. Since it takes 3-5 business days to transfer funds from PayPal to my bank account, and his tuition is due on the 10th…

Tablet broke. [Commissions closed]

EDIT: A very generous and awesome person has donated the amount I need to replace the tablet, so I don't need to take any more commissions. So yeah. My tablet is broken. I'll be getting a replacement ASAP. Unfortunately, I wasn't done making this week's comic, so that'll be late. Sorry!

Art Programs for INKING

I wrote this as a response to someone who complained that their digitally inked pictures looked too much like a coloring book. Then I realized, maybe it could help other people who have the same issue. This is a comparison of various digital art programs, when you're just concerned about INKING. I'…

Help: Art Priorities

I'm trying to get back onto a regular schedule for making artwork, but it's difficult for me to keep deadlines. I'm not all the way done unpacking from moving and the house is a mess. Also... I'm pregnant and because of that I feel sick about 60% of the time. And of course, I still have a toddler t…

My art queue

I know it's been a couple weeks since I released anything. Well, that's what happens when you move and have a bunch of appointments to make. If you're curious what my art and commission queue looks like- some of you may have sketches or cameos owed to you through Patreon- you can see what I'm worki…

Moving- Be back soon!

Well, this is it. Time to unplug my computer and pack it up to move. I might end up having to wait a couple weeks before connecting the internet at my new place. I don't have a laptop, so I can't go connect using some free wifi somewhere, so my comics and owed sketches are on hold until I can get b…

Patreon: Wow. Much thank. Very gratitude. Wow.

Thank you guys so much for your support! I wasn't expecting to reach both milestone goals so quickly. So, I came up with another milestone goal: an "Ask Captain Cheng" sketch blog! When I reach $125 pledged per page, I will create a sketch blog on Tumblr and update it at least 3 times a month. I've…

Not sure I can keep doing this.

I'm not sure I can keep doing Anthronauts. I just took an entire month-long hiatus to try and get the house clean, and get a backlog of comics and finish commissions. I wasn't able to finish a single comic page or commission and the house is still a mess. It turns out that my kid, who is turning 1.…

Moving back in

My last journal entry was a notice that I was leaving. Well... I'm back. I noticed that after this last few days, there's been a mass exodus from FA to Weasyl. I made myself an account here a long time ago but found myself not using Weasyl because I was daunted by the task of uploading my old work.…

So, I don't really use Weasyl.

So, I don't really use Weasyl. Ever. I thought I would when I signed up, but it's not happening. See, I had wanted to upload all my old work here before I started posting my new art. Then I found out I had 520 drawings, 465 pages of comics, and 147 chapters of stories. And pretty much everyone I fo…
