Things Hello World Collection in Australia

Things Hello World Collection in Australia

Australian fans can purchase Hello World from the fabulous independent comic book store Impact Comics. They have done so much to support Australian comics and local artists that I actually prefer it if you purchase from them instead of me directly!

Thank you all for hanging out with the Things.

The Things will be at GeekGirlCon!

The Things will be at GeekGirlCon!

We’ll be part of the Horrific Miscue booth at G127. It will be great to see you there and anyone who is a Patron who comes up and says hello gets a Greetings from Seattle poster or a Bunson Hoppydew Sticker!

Hello World – a collection of Things comics curated by J.D. Lunt

Hello World – a collection of Things comics curated by J.D. Lunt

Patreon update, we are teasingly close to $100. Patronage is an amazing and powerful form of support that gives me the confidence to do things like print collections and collaborate with fabulous folks.

This SATURDAY at the Push/Pull Gallery Hello World will be released into the world. That’s from 12pm-6pm. It is a 36-page collection of the Things lovingly curated and edited by J.D. Lunt (editor/cartoonist When I Returned, Monk Funnies, Watching the Stick, Coping Mechanisms). It will also be for sale in my shiny new web shop! 

Isn’t it amazing how getting things done leads to getting things done leads to getting things done! Patreon, comic, web store, oh my!

 

Creating in service

Creating in service

There is an alchemy that happens when you create in service. For me, it gives me a freedom as well as a responsibility. I may be stretched and asked for things that are a little beyond my comfort zone. I must hit a deadline, create the best experience, use my doubts to fuel energy, research, doing and completion, rather than letting those same doubts spiral down into self-defeating anxiety.

You can tell the difference, the alchemy when you look at this reflective blog post (nice, sure, but I’m burying the lead, I’m guiding you into something rather than bravely just going for it) and the blog post I wrote for Uncanny Magazine that went live today! In that post I get straight to the heart of it.

I am Liz, creator of the Things. Thank you so much to everyone who nominated me for a Hugo, simply making it to the long list was one of the best feelings I’ve had this year.

I am launching a Patreon. Patronage does so much! I would love your support. Thank you for supporting me, and thank you for supporting Uncanny Magazine.

^ Only more eloquent, because I was writing it for them, not me. Here is what I wrote for them

THIS IS A VERY LONG WAY OF SAYING my Patreon is live. Through that website, you can nourish creators like me for as little as $1 a month. I can already feel how it’s motivating me as a creator, I want to book more shows and reach out to my neighbors more. I would love your support. Thank you for reading this and go check it out!

August 22, Getting Ready for Launch

August 22, Getting Ready for Launch

On August 22 I will launch my Patreon. I’m so excited about it.

Patreon is a nifty place where folks like us can support creators we like

I’m excited about how it can be a central platform, bringing together stuff I do at Thingswithout.com, here and in other places. I’ll do logistical updates here, but Patreon will be a fun place to share cool stuff, creative stuff and create a great space for you to give feedback.

I’ve been sending a process diary to a few friends and you’re very welcome to subscribe if you’d like to be included.

Here’s how I made myself do an introductory video!

Upcoming dates:
