Donuts - inks over Jaymzeecat by dalgoda7
I just rewatched Deadpool 2 and noticed they changed the song in one of the scenes near the end of the movie. In the theater, it was an acoustic version of Ah-Ha's "Take On Me" but this time around it was an alternate version of Celine Dion's "Ashes" (which is also the opening theme song of the movie). I couldn't find anything about the change online (though did confirm that I was correct that it was "Take On Me" in that scene originally). Anyone know why they replaced the song?

Double Check Your Patreon Pledges!

Hey everyone. I just wanted to drop a line re: the recent issue over at Patreon. The gist (as I understand it) was that Patreon moved their headquarters or billing offices or something to the UK and this sent up red flags with the banks when it came time to charge patron’s cards for the month. This resulted in a lot of patron’s cards being declined. While Patreon has yet to issue an official statement about this (afaik) it has for the most part been cleared up by patrons checking in with their banks and letting them know the charges weren’t fraudulent. But myself as well as other Patreon creators have patrons who choose to support us but don’t generally check emails or really keep up with our Patreons in general. So many patrons are still marked as declined, probably have no idea and could be missing out on the content that they think they’ve paid for for the month. Many creators lost a significant amount of pledges this month because of Patreon’s oversight. I fortunately wasn’t hit too hard, but once everything was cleared up, I did lose about $15 in pledges from long time supporters. A good friend of mine lost over $100+. Patreons with more patrons were probably hit a lot harder.

So if you pledge to creators on Patreon, please double check that your card wasn’t declined for August. I know these artists would sure appreciate your continued support. And if you’re someone who’s been thinking of throwing some support toward your favorite artists, now would be a really good time. Thanks so much!

I’m going to crosspost this across my various accounts and hope that my declined patrons and other’s declined patrons may actually see it because they may be missing messages from Patreon. Hope you’re all having a rad day. <3

Ko-Fi

I've been thinking a lot recently about online friendships. As someone who spends the majority of their time alone working on the computer, I really do value the online friendships and relationships I have. I really appreciate all the comments and messages that you send to me. I even feel quite close to many of you even though we'll likely never meet or even hear each other's voices.

Sometimes I may not even know what your face looks like. And I do appreciate the need for anonymity online, if you never want me to see what you look like or know your first name I understand that. But I do admit I am a very curious creature. If you ever want to share with me, I'd very much like that. (And gosh if I've ever asked you to share something you weren't comfortable with, I'm so sorry! I'm really trying to be better about it!)

The past few weeks I've gotten various things from my online friends that have really brought a smile to my face. I received a wonderful drawing from an artist who asked to remain anonymous, I was not only touched that they made this awesome drawing with me in mind, but also that they trusted me enough to share their artwork with me even if they aren't ready to put it up publicly. Another of my very favorite online friends shared his voice with me when I asked to hear his accent (thank you so much, you know who you are!Heart Love you!). 

Recently someone showed me their picture and I got irrationally excited about it. I really really hope I didn't make him upset by telling him how cute I think he is. Sweating a little... I have a tendency to blurt out things and then over think them for days afterwards... so I hope he isn't somewhere getting a restraining order against me... 

So yeah... I get so excited about the things y'all share with me. Maybe even more so than I really should! 

On the other hand, I do think I trust people I talk to online a little too much sometimes. That's something I really need to work on. What happened earlier in the week was extremely disappointing. Someone I've talked to online for a while now, who I considered a friend... shared an incredibly hurtful racist and transphobic post to their timeline on Facebook. I naively thought someone who was a fan of my work (much of which is about a little brown gay skunk) that they would be an ally when it came to issues of race and LGBTQ rights and equality. At first I didn't want to believe it, I looked at the post multiple times to see if it was maybe something they shared because they were like "Look how offensive this is" but it was presented without comment, so I could only take it as something they agreed with. I'm also quite disappointed in myself for not saying something to them about it, just quietly unfriending them without explanation. I honestly don't even know what I'd say to them if they were to reach out to me on another platform. They do still have ties to me on other sites. But it isn't a conversation I want to or look forward to having. The whole situation has made me feel awful. For finding out they felt this way, for losing someone I thought was a friend and ally. My heart is broken.

But I don't want to be someone who turns bitter about forming new friendships (online or otherwise) so I'll move on hoping that the new relationships I make are with people I can trust. So to everyone who sends me nice comments and messages thank you so much. To everyone who has sent me artwork and pictures and just generally shared your lives with me, thank you! And to all of my online friends who've sort of faded or disappeared over the years, I still think about you from time to time and I hope wherever you are and whatever you're doing that you're okay. I hope to hear from you again someday. Huggle!

‎Hey! My name's Jaymz and I live in Portland, OR. I'm currently drawing 4 comic series': Willem, Devil Spy, Chunky Skunk and Wings Over Hyrule. I also have 2 completed comic series': Split Screen and Arrowhead. If you're interested in reading any of my comics, just go to my gallery and select one of the folders on the left.

I'm very active on Deviantart and love getting messages and comments, so don't be shy, talk to me! You can also chat with me on Google Hangouts: Jaymzeecat@gmail.com . I don't RP and I don't take requests (sorry!) but you can ask me anything, I'm pretty much an open book.

I'm in my late thirties, I'm chubby, I'm vegan. I love cats and birds, vintage kitchen stuff and toys. I love fat people and redheads (as you can probably tell by my art, haha). I also love characters with blue hair. :)

I have a separate account specifically for fat characters, just look for the account named Fattlestacks and add me to your watch if you want to see more fat boy drawings made by me. I don't update that account as much as I'd like since I am often busy working on my main comics, but I try! Anyway, thanks so much for checking out my work. I hope to get to know you all in time. :)
