I finally recorded our manifesto!
Be sure to check out our Laugh It Foward Kickstarter!
I hope you all are having an awesome Tuesday! Let me know what projects you're working on, maybe I can help!
I Got Fan Art! Books Ordered. How are you doing?Hey, Hooligans! I know I've not been on DA much lately. Let me know how you're doing. What projects are you working on? Life changes? Victories? Setbacks?
I got all the formatting on my 2nd book done, finally! It was slowed down a lot because I wrote this foreword bout my personal evolution from being afraid of making political comedy to embracing it this past year, and tying that together with the rise of alt-right racism or white supremacy since 2001. It was a lot of hard work researching things like the Charlottesville riot, the Dylann Roof church shooting, etc... and even harder writing comedy around all that! But I'm glad I did it. It made the foreword a lot better, and it gave me a much clearer understanding of recent history.
My friend Mizz-Swagnificent made this awesome gift art from an old comic strip of mine from back in 2012!
Sweet! Here's the original strip I made:

Woohooligan Vol 2: Laugh It Forward FUNDED!Hey, Hooligans! I neglected to post an update about this on Thursday. Oops! The Kickstarter campaign funded and hit its first stretch goal at the same time!
But I also have some other cool news! Yesterday, Scott Rosenberg backed the project!
Scott's an NYT best-selling author, former VP of Marvel and Chairman of Platinum Studios (Cowboys & Aliens, Hero by Night, I Was Kidnapped By Lesbian Pirates From Outer Space). But what you may know best from his work is producing the comic series Men in Black from Malibu Comics, which he signed to the movie deal before selling Malibu to Marvel.
That's so flattering!
In the hours since I published the Kickstarter update about Scott backing the project, we picked up a couple more backers and are just $
Woohooligan Vol 2: Laugh It Forward! KickstarterHey, Hooligans! Great news!
I relaunched our Kickstarter this morning and we're already 48% funded! Just one Kickstarter Exclusive Print or $8 gets us to 50% funded in the first day! (EDIT: 55% by the end of the first day -- 2/3rds funded by day 5!)

Pro Internet Troll Can't Handle His Own MedicineHey, Hooligans! A few months back I had this little dust-up with pro-internet troll and arguably the most hated man in comics today, Richard Meyer, which was great for me, gave me tons of material for satire. Basically, he and his fans can't handle their own medicine. I pushed back the relaunch of our Laugh It Forward Kickstarter because I wanted to get this off my to-do list first.
I've had some pretty good feedback on it so far!
"I love what you’re doing... like Swift meets a calm Bill Hicks, you use your comedy to expose the animal trappings of human nature. Ego, fear, ignorance, etc... You have a unique voice and perspective." - Eric Hailey
"oh...mygod. I... LOVED it xDDD Even lovey is sitting to the side, having no idea what I pulled up and says 'I love this guy, he's hilarious' and we're both just laughing our asses off." - Punkocalypse
I put it in my Twitter rotation with a bunch of Carlin-esque descriptions like:
"Meyer says jokes bring people together, so in th
What an Amazing Ride! Let's Go Again!Hey, Hooligans!
As seemed apparent within a few days of the end, our Laugh It Forward Kickstarter campaign didn't fund. I learned a lot, and I'll be relaunching the campaign in May. If you'd like to know more about the hilarious mistakes I made and the changes I'm making for the next launch, check out my post-campaign update.
p.s. What are you doing these days? New projects? Old projects? Let me know!
Laugh It Forward! LAST DAY!Hey, Hooligans! I'm just rounding up a final push for our Laugh It Forward Kickstarter that ends tomorrow!
I've had three pledges from DeviantArt so far, which ain't too bad! You guys are trailing behind Facebook (9), Kickstarter (8), and Twitter (7), but 3 backers out of 38 from DA ain't at all shabby! Now's your chance, if you've been waiting or weren't sure if you could afford it, you've got a little over a day to get your copy of either or both of the new books!
Laugh It Forward on Kickstarter!
I've learned a lot. I made a ton of mistakes in the preparation and execution of this campaign. I put a character's face dead-center in the campaign picture, so the PLAY button covered it right up. I put the tag line on the same picture in bigger letters than the title, so a bunch of people at the beginning thought the title was "Dick Jokes for Justice". I learn
Animatic Con was Awesome! and other newsHey, Hooligans! As you know, I volunteered at Animatic Con in Cincinnati this past weekend, and hosted my first comic con panel, titled Marketing Your Webcomic or Other Art! It went great! The nine attendees who came laughed at all my jokes and said they got some good tips they can use for their marketing, so that's a win! My performance could have been better -- there were one or two specific points I forgot to mention, but I covered everything overall.
And the rest of the convention was pretty sweet as well! I got to see Tea Time With Deadpool, and I met a comedy musician by the name of Mikey Mason. Check out this video of one of his songs!
I wrote more about the event here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/woohooligan/laugh-it-forward-comedy-and-comics-to-change-the-w/posts/2140946
I had to pre-schedule six of the artist spotlights<

Artist Spotlights, Kickstarter, New MedsHey, Hooligans!
I think I was trying to wait to post this journal until I had recorded a better video for our Laugh It Forward Kickstarter, but I've been having trouble getting a mic that works with my Canon Vixia, so I'm going ahead and posting now instead of waiting 'till at least Tuesday.
The Laugh It Forward Kickstarter launches in a little over two weeks on March 6th! I did manage to find 60 people who answered the call for artists to spotlight, and about 17 of them have already filled out their interview questions. One person dropped out, so if you'd like a spotlight during the March campaign, there's one empty seat.
I think the project is pretty ready for launch. I am of course pretty nervous. Here's the preview if you'd like to offer your thoughts on it, that'd be great!
I know the video's real rough -- I'm waiting on a new mic from Amazon before I record another one where I
I hate manga and anime.Recently, someone told me that she likes Anime and Manga because they are avenues for limitless imagination, and without rules.
I couldn't believe what I was hearing, because my own experience is utterly opposite: Anime and Manga are quite possibly the least creative, most rule-infested genre of art. I can speak with some authority on this subject because I've lived in Japan (the home of anime and manga) for seven years.
In fact, I OWN some rulebooks about manga and anime, despite avoiding that genre with the same dedication with which a diabetic avoids sugar. I've also watched interviews with manga artists as they discuss the rules of manga/anime, and hung out on a Manga-for-artists website before discovering DeviantArt.
Consider the following rule set, and ask yourself a) is it true? b) what sort of stifling rulebook and lifestyle forced these artists to stay well within the rules, only trying to break away from the pack by taking the rules of cuteness, sexiness, violence, and good-v

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and

Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!

July Commissions!Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project abandoned.
My commissions are always open, I just ask you to be patient because I work on them as ideas come by. I try to finish them as fast as I can but I give priority to quality over speed.
Those interested please read this:
