I’m going to be sticking to this comics schedule of Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. So that means there’s a new comic up today!
I have also recently set up a shop on Etsy. There’s not a whole lot on there just yet, and everything that is on there is also available on the site here. But it’s good to get everything consolidated into one easy shopping destination! Right now there’s prints for sale of my recent ‘animals wearing clothes’ drawings, copies of my graphic novels, and also options for ordering custom art commissions.
But the real news of the day is that I received confirmation yesterday that a publisher in the UK wants me to do a trans themed graphic novel for them!!! This will be an original story, completely unconnected to my webcomics.
I’m very excited, but also very nervous. I know from experience that writing a graphic novel is a huge undertaking. And as of now, I still don’t know if my publisher is able to give me an advance payment to live on while I produce this book. As I mention pretty frequently, I work a full-time job in addition to doing these comics. Add writing a graphic novel on top of that and… there’s just not enough hours in the day.
Right now I have some truly wonderful people giving me support on Patreon, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that. What I’m hoping is that, should I not get an advance to do this book, enough people will be able to step up and support me further so that I’m able to at least reduce the hours I work and have enough time to do all this other, much more important stuff.
I should mention that all Patreon supporters of $25.00 or more per month are entitled to a copy of every single book I put out. That includes this one. So if you are able to help support me through this process, in addition to helping keep the site going and knowing you helped a potentially important new piece of art become available to the community, you WILL get something tangible out of the deal.
Help keep Life of Bria going and support trans voices in media!
Also, at the end of every month, I will be releasing a special ‘thank you’ comic to those who have supported the site, either through Patreon, PayPal, or ordering art commissions, custom cards, true-self portraits, or who have had voice lessons with me. If you have had done any of these things in the past month, you will have access to the bonus material as my way of saying ‘thank you’ for going the extra mile in helping support the site.
And, as always, thank you from the very bottom of my heart for reading! I never dreamed I would make it this far drawing cartoons on the internet.
