This summer is gonna be big. I'm so scared.
So, the part of this that may be directly relevant to you all is that I am taking July off from commissions and Fissure so I can get my portfolio fixed up. After that, I'm sending it to everyone that will possibly take it. I'm not expecting to get a full time gig, but if I did it would give me some direction for this next bit:
I'm seriously planning on moving out of my aunt's house and getting my first apartment. I am super excited for the implied freedom, but I don't have the funds to get one right now (since I'm only working part time). So, I'm also planning on getting a new job. Something outside the childcare profession, preferably at a bookstore or art supply store. Hopefully at Hobby Lobby. Anyway, these are huge, time-consuming and stressful changes.
Any advice on apartment hunting would be appreciated.
Since I'm taking a hiatus from Fissure, I decided it would be a good time to have a contest!
The goal of the contest is to introduce new readers to the webcomic.
There are 2 ways to participate:
1. Just tell your friends about the comic. It'd be nice if they were people who you think would actually like a sci-fi, psychological, romance comic. After they read it, ask them to mention who sent them in a comment below a comic page on either deviantart or smackjeeves. I don't think smackjeeves requires the commenter to have an account, but I could be wrong. If they want, they could also send me a tweet iesnoth.
Each friend is worth 2 points.
2. Share the comic on facebook or twitter with #fissure in there somewhere so I can search it and see who's sharing.
Each share is worth 1 point, with a limit of 1 per week (don't want to spam your friends).
Winners will be decided as follows:
Grand-prize winner: The person who has the most points over all will receive an original Fissure-themed watercolor painting to be mailed to them.
Lottery winner: I will enter each point into a lottery and draw a winner (more points= more entries). This winner will receive a Fissure-themed sketch to be mailed to them.
The grand prize winner will not be eligible for the lottery.
New readers brought in as a result of the contest are eligible to participate in the contest if they start before the cut-off date.
The contest will start on July 1st and finish on midnight of July 31st.
Thanks in advance for spreading the word!
