October’s Patron Thank You Comic

New Posts, Uncategorized

Every month I’m putting out a special comic to say thank you to those who have been kind enough to financially support Life of Bria. Whether it’s through direct donations on Paypal, donations via Bitcoin, monthly donations on Patreon, or hiring me to produce Art Commissions/Custom Cards/True Self Portraits, all of my supporters have my gratitude! So keep an eye out in your inbox for this comic made just for you!

If you would like to be eligible to read this month’s Patron Comic, start supporting Life of Bria now in any of those ways that works best for you, and I’ll send the comic to you ASAP.

Thank you so, so much to my supporters. And also, thank you to all of you who take the time to read and share and comment on my comics. It means the world to me.

Join me LIVE today at 3:00 PM PST (6:00 PM EST) on strangelabel.com for the 2nd episode of my new internet radio show, Live With Bria. I’ll be sitting down with Vancouver graphic novelist, PJ Patten, to talk about his book, Tower 25, which details his experiences being homeless and addicted to methamphetamine on the beaches of California.

Radio interview with People First Radio

New Posts, Uncategorized

As I gear up for my own radio show, which airs September 25th on https://strangelabel.com at 6:00 PM EST, I’m delighted to find that my most recent radio appearance on CHLY’s People First Radio has been posted online!

You can listen to it here.

It was a delightful experience, not the least because CHLY is located in my childhood stomping grounds of Nanaimo.  It gives you a real sense of having ‘made it’ if you get some recognition from your hometown, y’know? Hopefully I’ll get a chance to actually go back and visit there before too long…

Special Patron Exclusive THANK YOU Comic

New Posts, Uncategorized

I had been saying I’d do it for weeks, and now I’ve finally got around to it. Today’s comic is a very special exclusive one, just for those who have been kind enough to financially support the site this month, whether through monthly donations at Patreon, direct donations via Paypal, or hiring me to do art commissions, custom cards, true-self portraits, or voice feminization lessons. All these things go a long way in keeping the site up, and my spirits high.

One of the more recent commissions I received.

So, THANK YOU so much to everybody who’s helped out, you know who you are, and I’ll be sending you the comic shortly. And if you’d like to get in on this, or you just want to help out, lend your support now and I’ll send you the comic as well. Even if it’s just $1.00, it means a lot to me that you’re willing to give at all. I will also be doing this every month, so there will always be incentive for people to donate.

And, of course, I know not everybody is in a position to be spending money on comics. So it really means so much to me that you wonderful people are reading, sharing, and ‘liking’ my work. All of that’s supporting me, too.

Thank you all so much! (a new comic comes out Monday)

Beyond Hanky Code

Well, the wonderful Charlie McNabb over at the LGBTQ blog, Beyond Hanky Code, just wrote a really nice review of my comics! I’m just so thankful that people read my work, but I’m even more thankful that somebody would take the time to write a review of it.

Feel free to read the review, and to check out the rest of the blog, which deals with a wide range of mostly LGBTQ-related topics. I’ll definitely be following this blog from now on.

Wednesday Comic, Etsy Shop, Book Deal, and Thank You to Patreon Supporters

New Posts, Uncategorized

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!

My most recent animal drawing

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.

Love,

A Saturday Comic???

New Posts, Uncategorized

Screw the schedule! Everybody’s so pissed about that transploitation movie, (Re)Assignment, that I just couldn’t sit on this comic until Monday. It’s clearly just the screen-writer’s teenaged forced-femme jerk-off fantasy come to the big screen, but what could have been done to make it… not awful? Well, this bonus comic attempts to address that. What do you think? Could that movie have been salvageable?
