The Ballad of Spinach Quiche
Hey Webcomic People

What are y’all using to display your webcomics? I’m looking for an alternative to ComicPress. Anyone?

“'Two Birds with fair wings, knit with bonds of friendship, in the same sheltering tree have found a refuge.' Okay, now you.”
"… The big line with the handlebars is a T, right?"

Avani and Cirrus and literacy, as drawn by the amazing Pickles who draws Distillum. Felt like a steal for the price.

Heh, you beat me to posting it! I’m glad you like it :D

So I’m dumb and updated ComicPress on the Distillum site and now it’s so unbelievably broken. Working on getting it fixed, but if the site were a car, I’d have just totaled the damn thing. Might take a bit.

WHAT A JERK

Thanks for the heads up about comments on the Distillum site. They are indeed broken. I have to head to work, but I’ll see if I can fix it later tonight.

Figures.
(hey guys, I haven’t gotten any comments in a while. I usually get at least one or two. Can anyone try to comment and tell me if it’s broken?)

Two more commissions!

Commissions are closed for now. I ended up getting quite a few, so I need to catch up. Thank you so much to everyone who’s commissioned me, you’ve really helped me out!

Commissions temporarily closing!

Wow guys, y’all really came through for me! Thank so much for the HUGE list of commissions. I’m going to have to cut them off for a while just to make sure I don’t get too overwhelmed. I might open them back up later!

Also a reminder that I still have a Patreon campaign going! There will be a Patreon exclusive comic starting (hopefully soon) that will be visible only to backers, and it’ll only take $1 a month to see it. Stay tuned for details!

And two more commissions! (I drew more today but I can’t post them)

hi everybody, recently i’ve been seeing a lot of people around the internet talking about experiencing drawing related pain
it feels like the right time to publicly recommend this extremely informative and well-researched minicomic by kriota willberg. i carry a copy with me everywhere and tell friends about it all the time because it is super helpful and has helped me unlearn some bad drawing habits and learn plenty of healthy new ones!
in 60 pages it covers
drawing positions that lessen stress on your muscles
a wide variety of easy exercises (and sample routines)
small lifestyle changes you can make to keep healthy
and when to tell if prevention isn’t enough and you need to see a doctor
you can buy it HERE and HERE. it’s very thorough, the author knows a lot about muscles and the body as well as about the specifics of drawing and it really shows. even if you haven’t experienced drawing pain yet, integrating this stuff into your routine is a good way to start taking preventative measures
stay safe and healthy everyone!

Wow hey so this is a thing I wish I’d seen last year…

PROTECT YOUR DRAWING HAND!
Guys, I know wearing braces is apparently the “hip” thing (or it sure seems that way by the sheer number of folks wearing them in art departments), but the fact is, you should NEVER have to wear a brace just to draw. I draw for anywhere from 4-10 hours a day, and I’m never in pain from it. And that’s because I practice good self-care. You should too!
Preserve your arm and hand!
