Heya, folks. We’ve had a couple of people out of town this past week, so progress on Costume Fairy Adventures hasn’t been as snappy as we’d like, but we’re still crawling along. We’ve gotten all of the main sections of the Core Rulebook locked in, and we’re now totally focused on the optional Plugins chapter. The Plugins chapter itself is completely written, mostly edited, and a fair way into layout, with three out of five core Plugins in the bag already. Here’s where things stand:

Core Rulebook

Written: 97%
Edited: 93%
Laid Out: 88%
Illustrated: 59%

Core Costume Deck

Written: 82%
Laid Out: 70%
Illustrated: 100%

Finally, we’ve got a couple more previews from the GM’s chapter to tide you over. As always, click for high-res!

More from my other day job.

Heya, folks. Not much to report this week for Costume Fairy Adventures writing-wise; the final section of the GM’s chapter has been turned in and handed off to our editor, and the Plugins chapter is down to final odds and ends of writing. Here’s where the current percentages are at:

Core Rulebook

Written: 96%
Edited: 90%
Laid Out: 80%
Illustrated: 51%

Core Costume Deck

Written: 75%
Laid Out: 67%
Illustrated: 100%

We’ve also got a few more preview spreads from the GM’s chapter to show off - as always, click for high res! Next week, we’re planning on changing things up a bit and providing a sneak peek at how the Core Costume Deck is shaping up, featuring a few Costumes whose stats haven’t appeared in any preview to date… possibly including the oft-requested Squid Hat!

Until then, folks.

19th century mathematician Ada Lovelace punching steampunk dudes yea! :D

Found this old doodle at my 2010 pile XDXDXDSo the story behind this (or what I remember curiouscake telling me); back when my family and I used to all sleep in one room (kids on the floor right around the bed ma slept in), my sister kind of woke up in the middle of the night/early morn and saw That looking right over the edge of ma’s bed. 



Turns out, ma just couldn’t sleep and for some reason thought it’d be hella cute to just creep over the edge and just look over her darling children. 
So in my ma’s POV:

Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

As I understand this ruling, it means that businesses now have to pay extra to ISPs to have access to their websites through that ISP provided at a reasonable speed. If you don’t pay, users’ access to your website will be slowed to a crawl - so independent people and small businesses can forget about getting onto that high speed access tier. 
This means that the American internet is going to be firmly under the control of those who have the most money. You’ll only get to see the content of those who can pay the ISPs to provide access at a reasonable speed. This means that you can expect to see skewed representation of just about everything, with those bigger businesses who can afford to pay ISPs a premium for access deciding what you can and cannot read, view and consume on the internet.
This is not something that we have in the UK. Our ISPs compete with each other to provide higher speeds, better services and lower prices, but because there’s a monopoly in the US of a few ISPs who provide services, they can afford to do this to you. You can’t go anywhere else, after all.
Everyone in the US needs to sign that petition, call their representatives, write angry letters and do whatever you can to tell your government that this ruling is Not Okay.

Maybe you guys are sick of this post but It’s really important to freelance artists and pretty much everyone who uses the internet, so here it is again.  \o0o/

Because it’s terrifying… Spread the word before it’s the new norm.

needs to be seen.

Keep spreading the word guys. Screw this.

Okay I like to keep my art tumblr just mostly art doodles and personal stuff, but this is a big deal to me as I am financially surviving through my current remote freelancing work. This kind of thing impacts what I can show and who can see my work and nobody should have to pay more just to get an even footing with the big corporates who can. PLEASE sign the petition and /call your representatives and Spread the Word.
