Question for artists: how do you curate your online galleries? Do you
a) periodically wipe the slate clean and start again?
b) remove anything more than X years old?
c) remove the stuff that you no longer like?
d) divide it up into ‘best’ and ‘not so best’ sections with folders/tags? or just
e) treat it as a complete permanent record (and if some of it's bad, well, that was then)?
Came across this comparison of different crowdfunding services (including donation-based, tipping and a few other models) while looking around. A bit open/software-centric, not sure how up-to-date (Ko-Fi absent), and naturally they conclude their own is the best, but interesting https://wiki.snowdrift.coop/market-research/other-crowdfunding

it's another example of a) the 'what's good for us as a business must be good for you' fallacy (usually seen in shifts from pay-once to subscription) and b) failure to grasp the stakes of making 'tweaks' when you're a service that some literally depend on to live
No new Dragon Moms today, but I did put out a dragon game Tuesday, so give it a look if you're needing your dragon fix! It's an exciting adventure of sex work and romance and complicated feelings!
If you're not the sort for a spicy BDSM romance, maybe you'd like to play my previous game, Changing Together, instead? It's still super cute and super about dating a dragon! https://poetfox.itch.io/changing-together
Now that my deskless art setup is functional at last, I'm on a dependable schedule again, and my most pressing art obligation is out of the way, I've decided I'm OK with taking a few commissions -- so if you've had your heart set on getting a piece from me, feel free to send an inquiry to my email (now tarah at lobstworks.com). (Price sheet below, serious inquiries only.)
this may be the only time i ever link to twitter on here but a i wrote a long thing about emotional health and the mean side of the web
‘Look at this garbage. What is this?’
‘Oh no, it’s my dreaded apple slicer.’
‘There’s no easy way to clean it!’
‘I clean it all the time.’
‘Impossible. I hate this thing.’
‘Just leave it in the sink.’

Opening for commissions this week, in the style I’ve been doing for Inktober - $15 to $70:
Planning to open for commissions soon. Does anyone have thoughts/experience on whether commiss.io is worth using? (Pluses as I see it: doesn't use Paypal, offers buyer/seller protection. Minuses: requires signup, takes a cut.)
Remember in these times of grief that it's absolutely okay to make normal posts.
A lot of people are mourning today, and for many of those people, this is a space they come to for positive interactions. This space may be part of someone's self care plan.
I encourage you to post as you need and want to today, and if you have the spoons, interact with others even more than you normally do.
Tragedy in a community reinforces the importance of community. Let's all care for one another together. ♥️
