Paper Cat Press is under construction! But all of the links should still work the way you expect them to. I’m working on finding a better theme for this blog so it looks cleaner and is more immediately informative instead of divided into links.
I’ve added a Links page, which lists some resources and opportunities and a long list of admirable webcomics. Over time, this list will be added to and subtracted from. I’m currently mulling over what to include and exclude. Since many of the friends I’ve made on Twitter are webcomic artists, and I myself love comics, I want to share the result of the hundreds of thousands of hours of hard work that go into comic production. But if you’d rather see more resources or other links, let me know and I will do what I can. (Still working on adding and organizing more clearly!)
I’d like to add creator interviews to the site. This includes illustrators, comic artists, writers, community leaders, and anyone else with an interesting perspective on today’s creator community. I have actively requested one individual to interview, but will begin asking for more. I currently cannot offer pay, but will gladly advertise your current projects, websites, and contact information. These interviews may be recorded, but only if the interviewee is alright with that. Either way, interviews will be transcribed and edited for clarity. If I can do this at least once a month, I’ll be satisfied!
I’d also like to add book features. I’ve purchased many art books and comics this year and started reading and keeping up with many webcomics. I think these collections deserve to be put in as much spotlight as possible. Along with the books featured will be information on how to support the creators involved.
Thank you for your interest in this blog. I started it because I wanted to be able to share as many opportunities and resources as possible for people within the contemporary illustrator community, particularly those creators interested in comics, fandom, and diversity. I’ll do my best to continue to share with you the things I think you might find interesting. If there’s something you’d like to see, let me know.
Do you want to work on some of your goals for this month, too? Becca linked to this awesome challenge that’s worth checking out. Even if you don’t wind up sharing the audio or video clips you make, it’s always useful to think back on your accomplishments and goals for the day, month, and year.
(Some friends and I also started making daily lists of goals and achievements, though I’ve fallen off the wagon a bit… here’s to keeping it going!)
I work full time and am an illustrator and comic artist, so the time I can devote to this blog is limited. But I’ll still do my best. If you’d like to support me, you can “buy me a coffee” here.
Thank you again~!
