The amount of interest the book is generating is great. Thank you to everyone who has shown support and interest in the project so far—and also thank you to those who have already submitted work.
Please continue to signal boost and get the word out about the project on your tumblrs, and wherever else you frequent the internet. The more people that are aware of the project, the better!
To those thinking about submitting artwork, please do! And to those currently working on submissions, we look forward to seeing your work.
The Vampire Artbook is now accepting submissions!
This vampire book focuses on the concept and aesthetics of vampirism, and is looking for artists and vampires of all kinds. Both illustrations and comics are accepted.
The submission deadline is September 8th.
This looks like it could be a very interesting project!
Ok. For just a moment here, I’m going to hold off on the tentacle jokes, soul-stealing, and general WTF-ery on the postings and be serious. (It’s only for one post, so remain calm. The usual crazy will return.)
Right now, we’re in a lousy situation. While there’s events coming up the next two weekends, sales have been low enough that I’m massively behind on covering simple expenses, like our internet service (hence why you’ve been stuck seeing only text posts from my phone for the last 2 days.) At the same time, I need to be able to cover over things like the fuel needed to even make it to the upcoming events.
In short, we need to sell stuff. If you’ve been thinking about buying any of my work, now would be a great time. If you haven’t been, or don’t have the funds but still want to help out, even just sharing around some of the links to my work would be much appreciated.
Hey, everyone. So this is really, really important. Especially people in the TACOMA, SEATTLE AREA.
Early this morning (Sat. June 21) around 3:00 AM my husband saw somebody jump our backyard fence and snatch our 15 week old puppy, Fennris. Everything happened so fast, and it was completely unexpected so by the time we went after them, they had already gone.
The puppy is about 15 weeks old, an Alaskan Klee Kai (miniature husky). He weighs around 6-7 lbs and his coat is white/gray/black and he has bright blue eyes. He is wearing a blue collar with a nametag on it that reads “Fennris”.
We believe somebody grabbed the puppy, got into a car and drove away.
Please, please, please anyone in the Tacoma, WA area keep an eye out and if you see anything at all or hear anything PLEASE contact me right away.
If you don’t live in the Tacoma, WA area I would greatly appreciate it if you could signal boost this to your followers.
Fennris is the sweetest dog you’ll ever meet, and he’s young and he’s scared. He’s not just a pet, he’s a family member. Please help us find our puppy.
We are offering a $500 reward for his safe and unharmed return.
I have a friend who is in an unsafe and extremely stressful position at the present, so I’m writing this post on their behalf and hoping that one of my followers can help out.
They’re one of the nicest, most sincere, intelligent, and all around awesome people I know and I would super appreciate it if you could just read this all the way through, and perhaps signal boost it if you can find it in your heart.
I don’t normally ask for things like this, but my friend’s situation is urgent and I need to at least get this out there in hopes of a miracle. Thank you in advance.
To be short: my friend’s living situation is in a very bad place right now and they are desperately in search of a short-term or long-term roommate in the Orlando area in Central Florida. For various reasons related to health, safety, and other personal reasons, my friend is losing their roommate and simply cannot afford to live by themselves for an extended period of time. They are in a specifically tight spot at the moment because they are both agoraphobic and chronically ill, which makes it difficult to hold down a traditional job for very long.
Though they work from home for the income they do earn, it’s often not enough to support themselves fully (especially during the summer when work is MUCH harder to come by) while they are in this transitionary period of their life, balancing work, school, and their illnesses.
My friend desperately needs a stable housemate who can move in ASAP, or at least supplementary finances to tide them over. They do have $1200 saved up to cover one month, but that’s it for now. They will need at least another $1200-$1500 in order to pay for food, living expenses, and medical costs. The situation gets more and more frightening for my friend as time goes on, and it is visibly upsetting their life in various ways. To be frank, I don’t think they can handle this stress much longer.
My friend (and I!) would be forever grateful if anyone would be willing to become a short-term or long-term roommate. If you can’t, please consider also donating to their paypal (which, for safety reasons as well, you will need to message the original poster for) to help them gather funds in the meantime. If you don’t have money, please also consider signal boosting this. I would super appreciate it, my friend would certainly be overjoyed, and you would be doing a great thing!
Thank you so much for reading. It means a lot here to everyone involved.
So. The time has come for me to start funding my top surgery, aka chest reconstruction surgery.
The GoFundMe campaign is here. This has been a long year and a long process towards getting this far, however this is something that I need to do to feel good in my own skin, and I cannot pay for on my own.
If you can contribute, thank you. I’m doing drawing commissions as part of the rewards for them, or if you cannot afford and can simply signal boost this it would mean the world to me.
Thank you all, so much.
Reblogging for the morning crowd.
Please, at least take a look, watch the video, plug it wherever you can.
My friend is homeless very very soon!
He is dying of an illness and also has panic disorder! His family are being rude shits and he needs a place to stay for a while until he gets up on his feet.
I would prefer it if you are a follower, but if ANYONE has a spare room, or an empty couch, or anything like that you could offer please message me! He has a job but it is being threatened by his inability to actually get there in his position. He currently has no access to public transportation and no car so being IN Springfield is important, not outside or even on the far outskirts.
If you can help please shoot me an ask!
C’mon guys this is a desperate, emergency type situation! :(
Signal boost! Anyone?
These paintings have been stolen from a gallery in Seattle. I am reposting this from this Facebook post about the theft, by request of a friend of the artist. Please reblog this, especially if you are in the Seattle area.
PLEASE Re-post/Share on your wall (especially Washington State residents). Thanks, for any help.
Four of my paintings from my most recent art show went missing and unfortunately, it seems somebody brazenly walked in, took them off the walls, and stole them. The paintings most likely disappeared sometime during the last weekend of April (maybe a day or two before I arrived to pick up my artwork this Sunday 4/27).
The paintings were displayed in Seattle in the main lobby of the:
212 Alaskan Way S.
Seattle WA, 98104
(Otherwise known as OK Gallery during Pioneer Square artworks.) The building is secured with code/key entry only. I have filed a police report in Seattle, and an investigation is underway, by the police and management. $3,600.00 worth of paintings were stolen. Everybody please keep an eye out for them, especially in the Pioneer Square area, (you’ll recognize my style if you see them) they might be hanging on somebody’s wall right now, or for sale online somewhere. If you have any info about my four stolen paintings please contact me via Facebook Message, E-mail or call or text my phone.
Phone: (Please call/text this number only if you have info about my missing paintings.)
To the thief, if he/she sees this somewhere: I’m flattered that you liked my artwork so much, but you not only stole $3,600. worth of my artwork, you stole over 100 hours of my time and labor. You stole some of my favorite ‘children.’ If you return the paintings in the condition they were in when I had them hanging on the walls then I will not press charges and I will ask no questions. I simply want my artwork back, intact. The art world is competitive and difficult enough, but now I also have to worry about people who lack virtues, swooping in, and stealing over a month of my dedicated time, passion and labor? Shame on you for stealing from a poor artist. Contact me, return the artwork, and no questions will be asked and no charges will be filed against you.
The artworks are shown above:
"The Sun at Midnight"
Oil on Canvas, 24”, 30”
"The Language of The Birds"
Oil on Canvas 24”, 36”
"Into crumpled paper, hope had collapsed."
Mixed Media on Canvas, 30”, 30”
"…Our dreams lay still, one wing clutching at air."
Mixed Media on Canvas, 30”, 30”
Please re-post/share this on your wall. Thanks for the help everyone, and hopefully I will have my paintings returned.
I don’t understand these kinds of crimes. Why would you want to hang art on your wall by an artist who fucking hated you? Do people think artists are rich, that they deserve to be punished by having their work stolen? And why is the gallery so insecure and unobservant as to let multiple, large paintings just walk out the front door?
My very first gallery show was when I was 12 years old. It wasn’t a school thing or a scholarship contest, it was a real gallery, albeit a small one, above a vintage clothing store in my hometown. After commissioning a chalk pastel drawing of the Lady Godiva from me, a middle-aged man tried to haggle over the price ($60), and when I told him to go stuff his bullshit, he stole it from the gallery as soon as my back was turned.
So the kind of person who steals artwork from galleries, is the kind of person who cheats a 12-year-old girl out of a commissioned painting and then probably goes home and jerks off about it. He had a college-aged daughter he tried to use as leverage against me, like maybe I would lower the price to impress her.
Reblog this, and remember these paintings. When you see them on someone’s wall, you’ll know what kind of person they really are.

This guy has been giving illegal tours in St. Louis Cemetery #1. Worse he has been vandalizing the tombs and removing bones. He is doing this for money. Please be aware and contact the authorities if you see him. Please do not take a tour or pay an unlicensed tour guide. Save our History.
All right- see these awesome belt pouches? Each one’s currently slipped onto a 40” belt. Each one hand-constructed to be able to hold ALL the contents of your pockets whilst looking infinitely more awesome. Each one ready to go anywhere.
Now, normally at conventions or online, I sell these for $120 apiece (plus shipping, if shipping’s needed) Right now, because I need the funds so I can cover things through the first day of ECCC, I’m going to offer a bit of a deal. The first person to contact me privately and pay me for one of these through paypal gets to have one for only $95 dollars, including shipping inside the continental US. (International folks, you’re welcome to the $95 price, but I will have to add on shipping fees for you) That’s twenty-five bucks off of the regular price, and for those who know me, I don’t offer these kinds of deals very often, if ever. So, who needs to get belted?
Trust me, peeps, one of you needs to jump on this deal and throw money at winneganfake.
