Devious Journal Entrythanks to everyone's who's been leaving comments to me.

Devious Journal EntryHappy new year everyone.
I thought i should share some of the illustrations from my guinea pig calendar.
weird meme-i got taggedI got tagged by :iconvanessa-sux:
Rules: The 1st player of this "game" starts with the topic "6 Weird Habits/Things About Yourself" and people who get tagged need to write a journal about their 6 Weird Habits/Things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "You are tagged" in their devPage comments and tell them to read yours..."
I'm going to do this, but I don't want to tag anyone. (fear of retribution?!?!?!?!)
Maybe i'll tag someone later when i can think of who i want to know these things about?!
1. I obsessively pull out my white hairs. I'm allergic to most hair dyes so i can't dye my hair. Actually probably 10% of my hair is actually white but you would never know it!! hahahaha
2. The tops of my pinkys (and actually every person down my father's lineage) has pinkies that grow inward (toward the ring finger) at about 10 degrees off. i think it's a genetic thing l
comics!i ditched painting my comics by computer.
i started watercoloring again, and frankly real mediums are the shit.
and i'm 3000x better with them than with painter.
plus they're wicked faster than computer.
seriously i put out 3 pages in watercolor in a day as opposed to one the comp.
muahahah. i got a new paintbrush too which is just awesome.
i'll scan them for you all when they're done.
I hope to have this done by the time spx rolls around but i'm not sure. we'll see =3
San DiegoSan Diego Con was nice! I got to see a lot of old faces and new ones at the same time.
Da Cloonan, Da Reeses and Da Satone were all my homies at the con. It was noice!
American Virgin is out. Get it all of you.
Y'all need to check out Wet Moon if you haven't yet. I got to talk to the artist for a bit, and it's worthwhile look.
Other things I can totally recommend is the Flight 3 book, which pumped up it's stature majorly since book 2.
I mean book 2 was schweet, but Flight 3 was totally like another level. (nice job you flight artists =3)
AND CLOUD BOY! I love this book. It's a children's book about making art. it's so nice. I <3 the artist.
I got my portfolio reviewed bu a lot of big and small name companies alike. And I came away with the same thing which is
1. I need to focus more on my illustration skills
2. I need to make a pitch, (i need a writer!) because thus far my work is respectable but not cohesive
3. All the stories I want to do for myself, I should self publish, because

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!
Regular Payments / ABs
Some believe that Paypal does not help in disputes over digital goods but a policy

Printed Minky Reviewedit to add: yes the printed minky is washable! I didn't wash mine, but according to spoonflower "Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles." Although please don't machine wash a plush, ahah. Just the fabric.
So I recently got the chance to play with printed minky! Here's a sort of review about it
Bought from: spoonflower.com
Price: $28/yrd. Very expensive, but for a very versatile product of this quality it's definitely justified.
Shipping: Only $6 to Canada, with tracking, took about a week and a half to arrive once shipped, no duties. A+
File prep: spoonflower has very simple requirements that are easy to follow. I scanned my pattern pieces, cleaned them up and colored them, then I copied them into a file that was set to spoonflower's specifications (150dpi, set to the width of minky. I added length as I needed it). To make sure my pieces
