The woodworker who's building our coffee cart recently lost his house, his woodworking tools, and everything inside his house, when their neighbour left their stove on and caused a fire. Titus is from Zim and moved here with his family a while back, working as a general handyman. I set up a crowdfund for him to try to replace his tools and help rebuild his home.
Please share! <3
I did a grown-up thing (after almost 2 months of being pathetic)
Someone left me critique on the beta version of my novel.
I didn't recognise their name but there's a pool of people it could be.
TOO AUTISTIC TO ASK
2 months later I sent a message to the person I am 98% sure it is like 'IS THIS YOU ALSO THANK YOU'
I would like a sticker please
Carboot sale positivity (spoiler: I loved it!) Show more
It was a car boot sale in support of a variety of charities, hosted by Olive Tree Cafe, who help people unemployed due to mental health get back into work (as well as providing an amazing community garden).
Everyone was extremely friendly and it was a lovely experience. It started with us helping the stewards carry the road signs and ended with me talking to a handcrafter and her mum about their gorgeous greyhound.
Perfect Sunday morning. :D

Question for artist on the fediverse Show more
Is "renting" art for a prototype a thing?
Somewhere in the middle of the "exposure bs" and "detailed colour art commission" scale. C
an I ask you, as an artist, to use your existing art for a very small fee to pitch my game to publisher, only that?
This is an actual question, I'm wondering if it is ethical to ask artist that question.
(Usual stuff applies, like name and contact of the artist on the prototype, no right to sell the designs etc.)
Went to Avebury but it cost me a high-level spell slot. Should get it back after a long rest though.
It was beautiful, of course, and I got to do a lot of crow-watching. :)
(Also twine) Yesterday I made 2 tiny pixel art severed arms as placeholders and I'm very happy about it
Sooo, @warpgate9 and I are doing a thing - we're tentatively dipping our toes into the coffee business and setting up a mobile coffee cart that we can sell coffee from roadside and at festivals and markets and stuff. We've got the expensive coffee machine and thought we'd #crowdfund for help with things like the grinder and generator, for which we'll send you postcards and stickers with krakens on 'em.
Pics from my overambitious Twine project
Making this Twine game is such a new and amazing challenge for me. I don't code and don't art so I'm learning lots of new things. There's a lot of frustration but also a huge sense of satisfaction when I finally get something working.
Also the Twine support community is INCREDIBLE. So much info and a lot of patience with idiotic questions (such as mine).
Very very recommended for writers who've always wanted to write for games or interactive stories!
Twine is amazing. I spent 2 hours on basic config before I even got started on story and I regret none of it.
Downloading Twine for my desktop even though that requires that I use it on Windows and I already have it on my beloved Linux laptop. :(
Hey artists! I'm looking to hire someone for cover art for an upcoming TTRPG. It involves anthropomorphic dice adventurers.
If interested, reply with portfolio/examples of your work, and we'll go from there.
Okay. I have earned my cat cuddles and snoozes.
