I’m selling a few items on eBay. Check them out if you’re interested.
In case you missed it yesterday, here’s my latest Learn 2 Color Comic Books YouTube video.
It’s a demonstration on how you could color a comic book page on a single layer.

UPDATE: Vinz passed away the morning of May 23rd 2018. He was loved and we’ll miss him dearly. Thank you to all who offered their support over the last several days.
I had a rough weekend.
On Saturday morning we immediately noticed that our youngest ferret, Vinz Clortho AKA Big Boy, was having difficulty pooping. He would strain for awhile, nothing would happen, then he would get tired and put himself to bed. This was very concerning, so we took him to the vet ASAP. Once there the vet determined that he had bladder stones. This was preventing him from being able to urinate and the swelling was also preventing him from being able to make a bowel movement. He needed immediate surgery.
The surgery was successful, but he’s still not out of the woods yet. Since bringing him back home, he’s had regular (though very small) bowel movements, but we haven’t seen any indication that he’s urinated yet. Even though he seems to be regaining energy, he’s not eating or drinking on his own, so right now we’re periodically giving him food and water through a syringe. We’ll probably have to take him back to the vet early to see what’s going on.
On top of that, my car died. So I have to take that into the shop today. It’s especially important to get that fixed in case I need to rush Vinz to the vet during the day.
So, these unexpected expenses have put me behind and threaten my trip to HeroesCon next month, which I still hope to be able to make. I could really use an injection of funds right now and that’s why I’m asking for your help. There are a few things you could do to help me out, listed below:
- Click here and enroll in my comic book coloring courses. The Essential Bundle is currently 35% off now until the end of May.
- Click here and purchase something from my online shop. Use coupon code MAY2018 and save 25% on your order (expires at the end of May).
- Click here and purchase something with one of my Redbubble designs on it.
- Click here to “Buy me a Coffee” (or several) and receive links to download some of my old Photoshop work files.
- Finally, I may be putting a few items up on eBay soon, so follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook for links to those when they go up.
Thank you in advance for doing any of the above things to help. I really appreciate it. If you’re going to HeroesCon, and I do manage to make it there, please stop by my table and say hi so that I can thank you in person too.
If you follow me, you may have seen me do something to raise a little money for the PKD Foundation in the past. Just last September I used Facebook’s new “Donate Your Birthday” function to raise some money for them. It’s a very worthy cause because the PKD Foundation are the only organization in the U.S. solely dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for polycystic kidney disease (PKD) and to improve the lives of those it affects.
This is a disease that personally effects me since I have a family history. Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a genetic disease (passed from an affected parent to their child) causing uncontrolled growth of cysts in the kidney eventually leading to kidney failure. It affects all racial and ethnic groups equally. My Grandfather died from it before I was born, my Mother has it and received a transplant, my Aunt has it and received a transplant, and my little sister has it but has yet to require any treatment for it. I could also have it, but so far I haven’t presented any diagnose-able symptoms.
To take advantage of National Kidney Month, I’m going to use me web shop to raise some money for the PKD Foundation by donating my March profits to them. When I say profits, I mean all the money I earn after my expenses for the month. These expenses include a very small transaction fee on each order, and the monthly fee to Big Cartel, $9.99, and Ship Station, $9.00. That’s it. The comic books I sell in my web shop are all comps (complimentary copies) from the publishers, so they cost me nothing.
So check out my web shop, get some signed comic books, and help raise money for a good cause!
I’ve just added two more comics that I’ve worked on to my web shop. Star Wars Adventures #6 & Back the the Future: Tales from the Time Train #2.

Doc Brown has fulfilled his promise to Clara by completing his most ambitious project: the Time Train! Now, he has taken the whole family on a vacation to 1939 to the New York World’s Fair. Unbeknownst to them, however, there are some other visitors to the fair who have more nefarious plans—plans that will directly impact the Browns.

Hey guys, I could use your help in order to maintain my channel’s standing with YouTube. Many of you have probably already heard about the changes they’ve recently announced. If you haven’t, the gist is that they are changing the qualifications for the YouTube Partner Program. Previously, in order to qualify, a channel just needed a lifetime total of 10,000 views. Now they are changing it so that each channel must have a minimum of 1,000 subscribers and a watch time total of 4,000 hours over the last 12 months. These effects go into place on February 20th.
The announcement of these changes and the tight deadline is bad timing for me. I hadn’t uploaded any new videos over the course of 2017, so my subscriber growth has been slow recently and my total watch time hours for the last year is way low. At the beginning of this year, I made plans to really pick up my YouTube activity and I’ve been planning out a lot of new videos that I plan to start recording and post in the next few months. Unfortunately, with these new changes, that’s going to be too little and too late.
I would prefer not to have my channel be downgraded, or if it does I would prefer for it to be a very brief downgrade. Though, if I miss the deadline my channel will have to be reviewed and approved and I’m not sure how difficult that process will be. So, that’s why I’m asking for your help. If you haven’t already subscribed to my Learn 2 Color Comic Books Channel, please click here to do so now. At the time of my posting this, I have 563 subscribers and I need 437 to meet the new requirements. Also, please go through and watch some of the videos on my channel and then share them to your social media accounts and encourage your friends and followers to check them out. If you can do some or all of these things, it would be very helpful.
I normally prefer that all my followers and views happen organically and I hate having to ask for help like this, but YouTube has pushed smaller content creators such as myself into a corner. So, I really appreciate the support. Thank you.
UPDATE: Now that all the discount links are live, I’ll keep them up until the end of the month (Jan ’18) or until they are all claimed, whichever happens first.
Tomorrow, January 24th, is #ColoristAppreciationDay! To celebrate the day, I thought I would make several Flash Offers with discounts on the Learn 2 Color Comic Books Essential Bundle. Basically, throughout the day tomorrow, I’ll be posting links that will get you a huge discount off the course bundle. Each offer will be limited to only a few people, so they could end up being gone in a flash (which is why I’m calling them Flash Offers). If you click on the link for an offer, and it lists the full price and says “Invalid Coupon Code” that means other people have beat you to it. But don’t worry, there will be several chances at grabbing a huge discount! I’ll be posting these offers simultaneously to each of these pages:
