I was invited back for another episode of “Guys with Pencils"to talk about…
Katie Shanahan and J. Bone have joined us this week to talk about THEFT! specifically, Art Theft. Why Katie and J. you ask? Well because they are victims of having their own pieces of artwork stolen, traced and displayed without having any source credit to the original works or creators! This is a really interesting topic and we were very lucky to have such wonderful artists who can give their accounts as to what steps they took once they realized their work had been stolen.

If you find yourself in a similar situation, Stuart Immonen recommended on twitter that “The Artists’ Legal Advice Service” is a not-for-profit and has helped him in the past: http://www.alasontario.ca/p/contact.html
Cavalier is a short comic that I’m trying to publish about a young girl dealing with bullying and isolation in her school. I’m trying to make enough funds to publish copies and work on the comic full-time, and I need your help!
Everyone who donates $5 or more will get a copy of the comic, as well as some other nice perks like personalized commissions. Not only that, but because of International Women’s Day, Indiegogo will donate $1 for every $5 I earn up to March 8th! That means this is the perfect time to donate if you can.
Every bit counts, so page views and reblogs are very welcome. Everyone’s been so helpful and kind so far, but we’re still only 12% funded! Lists of all the perks you can get and information about the comic/ where the money is going can be found on the campaign page right here!
Please check it out! And thanks!
24 days left of the campaign and still only 12% funded! Also, today is the last day to take advantage of the Women’s Day bonus!
The Penguin Foundation has a global call out for knitters to make pullovers for penguins in rehab.
Penguins caught in oil spills need the little jumpers to keep warm and to stop them from trying to clean the toxic oil off with their beaks.
If you enjoy knitting as a pass time please please please do this. please.
You can download a PDF with more info here
signal boost this year again :D
Wish I knew how to knit more than a plain square!
Don’t bother. Pertinent text here:
[The Phillip Island Penguin Foundation] strongly imply in their advertising that this will save oil-soaked penguins (although there’s been no oil spill since 2001). If you read the fine print, you find out the sweaters will actually be sold in the gift shop. I guess “knit sweaters for us to sell in our gift shop” is not the sort of thing that goes viral.
Ally, I found you the perfect job.
there are literally so many badass things about this panel that if i tried to type them all out i’d probably hit the post character limit
