Modest Medusa 562 by JakeRichmond
Modest Medusa 562

-I’m switching my site to a new host this weekend, so if something goes wrong (which I’m sure it won’t) that’s why. If you do spot an error please let me know!

-It looks like I’ll be in San Jose for APE in early October (thanks to amazing and generous fan support from my recent GoFundMe). The booth is paid for, transportation is set, lodging is worked out. Everything is go. I’ve been wanting to go to APE since I was in college. This s actually my second attempt (I got sick the first time and had to stay home). I’m really looking forward to it and will have some cool new stuff to show off!

-Speaking of the GoFundMe, it’s still running and will stay up till the end of the month. It’s well over it’s goal, but excess funds are going toward helping me finally ship out the rewards from my last Kickstarter. As many of you know, events, my own poor planning and bad luck conspired to make my last kickstarter kind of a disaster, and I’ve been struggling to afford to ship the rewards to my backers for the last 8 months. Right now I have about half of the rewards shipped, but a lot of what is left is expensive overseas stuff. So any donations are greatly appreciated!

My GoFundMe met and surpassed it’s $350 goal. Thank you all so much! The page is still up and active, and all excess funds raised are going directly toward shipping the books and rewards from my last Kickstarter to my backers who have been waiting months to get them. I know some of you have told me you’d still like to contribute, so I’ll be leaving the GoFundMe active until the end of teh month. Thank you for all your help and support. It’s really appreciated!

Guys. I've started a GoFundMe campaign to pay for a table at the Alternative Press Expo in San Jose this October. The total I'm looking for is $350. My hope is to make enough money at APE to put a real dent in paying the shipping costs from my last Kickstarter. As some of you know, I severely underestimated how much money I'd need to complete my last Kickstarter project, and as a result many of my backers have been waiting too long to get their books and stuff. It's an awful feeling to promise something to people who have really supported you and not be able to deliver. I know I won't make enough money at APE to wrap up every expense related to my last Kickstarter, but I think this will go a long way, and any extra funds generated by this GofundMe will go directly into my shipping fund.

If you can spare a few bucks I'd really appreciate the support. If not, reposting is really appreciated! Here's the link:

Oh, wow. That's really cool. And huge! And that was just a temporary sand sculpture? Amazing.

Hello. I found modest Medusa at the beginning of the year (though your Infinity artwork actually). Anyway just want to say I've had a rough couple of years and have lost all self confidence. A couple of weeks ago. I told myself "Life's too short I'm going to learn to draw!" Their are several people made me want to do this. And you are one of them.
So keep up the good work.
And thank you, this means a lot to me.

P.s. Thank modest for me.
JakeRichmond Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2015
I'm glad to hear that. Learning to draw isn't easy, but it's worthwhile goal. I think a lot of people assume it's a talent that you have to be born with, and while that may be true for some people I also think that for other people it's a learned skill. So good luck!
