I mentioned I didn't keep up with uploading pictures last year, right? So here are all sketches I drew during Sketch Fests. Since I skipped some of them, of this might be unmanageable. I hope this year I can take part more regularly, and finish more things - this batch has a lot of very rough sketches.
If you like supporting creative projects directly, whether by donations or giving people ideas, see if there's something of interest here. It's a collection of projects that caught my eye, particularly fiction Fishbowls where you leave prompts for someone to use as basis for writing. At the end you'll find links to stories written to my prompts in February, as well as my activity last month.
Networking on Twitter
If you run a project - writing, drawing, anything else - which involves asking people for prompts, and you plug it on twitter, consider including the hashtag #promptcall
Updates of last month's projects
With a bit over two days to go, Plunge, the ezine for queer women in genre literature, is fully funded.
I don't think any of those stories need content warnings, though I can't vouch for other content you might find looking around.
Hopefully I didn't forget anything; I need to get more systematic about the bookmarking.
The Law & Order Fishbowl I ran in February will probably end up with relatively few stories; there is a pattern of someone's general prompt working together with someone else's more concrete one to create one story idea. I'm not as far along as I wanted to be by now, partly because I spent the last three days getting my computer to work again. While I did not lose any actual writing, I'm not sure I'll be able to recover my organised notes with the prompts and ideas based on them. (More frequent and thorough backups in future for me.)
The file with the stories from the Horror Fishbowl is at the editor's.
And lastly, five of the requests from the last Small Art Call are finished now.
That project is going more slowly than I'd like, too, but I'm picking up the pace and hope to get most of it done before March is over.
A smallish update of newish drawings, all of other people's characters. The middle three are from the small art call in January. I've been a bit stressed out that month and not drawing as much as I'd planned, but nearly all images from that one are inked, and I'm pecking away at the colouring.
My head was too crammed with coding for characterartexchange.com the last three weeks for writing, but I'll try to restart the Friday Flash habit next week.
Meanwhile, here's most of the rest of the art-crop from this year. They're all drawn for other people, 4 for "secret santa" exchanges, 3 as gifts, though one of the characters in the third pic is my own.
