Art Delivers

In college I published a number of small print run comics and 8 page short stories. For the most part a lot of bad spelling and copy cat storytelling on my part but that's how you learn. Or at least how I learn. Self-publishers, editors, hire them, they important. The below image was suppose to be one of the short stories but when I took it to the normal guy who was printing my books he refused to print it because... well, when I asked why he pulled out his wallet and showed me a actual fucking KKK business card. 
I ended up just printing out tons of the cover art on college printers and posted all over campus but got in trouble for that too. I've used this art for a few things and each time it brings out the assholes. Art is how I deal with things. I write, I work with artists, I create. Sometimes its to make others smile and laugh, sometimes to make me smile and laugh, and other times to tell a big Fuck You to those that need that message delivered as much as possible.
If I can find it I'll post a piece of artwork that got me my first death threat as a creator. 
I just thought of this piece of artwork tonight and pulled it out to talk about art. We all can't be warriors, or politicians, or leaders, or other things and other things, but do your part by being who you are and use it to resist, remember, and fight.

T.U.M.G.S. BOOK ONE: Mildred K. Betbeze

Someone is zombifying athletes at Clear Cut High School in Utah. Lucky the school has its own young superhero in the person of Mildred Betbeze to try and figure out what's going on. Pep rallies, cheerleaders, new kids in the neighborhood are just some of things our hero and her sidekick slash best friend Aisha have to deal with in the first audio book in Tin Universe's middle grade series.
Profits from the sales of this audio book will go to Trans Lifeline for as long as the books is here on Podbean.
Trans Lifeline is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the well being of transgender people. They run a hotline staffed by transgender people for transgender people. Trans Lifeline volunteers are ready to respond to whatever support needs members of the community might have.

SHORTLISTED #4

Just by looking at the total length of this months show you can see our team finally hit the goal and finished a list. They had a party. There was plenty of weird food, drinks, people, and creatures. Speaking of weird listen here to Brian and Eryn talking about Ten Weird but really more than weird just usual foods than the normal they encounter and have encountered in their lives.
This is also the first episode to feature the great artwork of Jessica Burnworth. You can find shirts sporting this image at the Tin Universe Zazzle store.
Shortlisted, the podcast where the hosts take a Top Ten list off the internet, because there are a few, and talk about it in a timed out amount of space. They just set a clock, and maybe not always at the right time, and talk for an hour, and then shut up no matter if they've made it through the list or not. They're not racing against time, they're shortlisting their big mouths.
Contact us to suggest a list or tell us we need to talk faster: shortlistedpod@gmail.com
And Eryn needed more things to do in her life so she made a website: shortlistedpod.wordpress.com
