I’ll try, y’all

Every year, I remember it’s Inktober on the first of October. Every. Dang. Year. (Except I think I remembered it one year on the third).

I’m still having issues with my hands. I tried sketching earlier and it was really uncomfortable.

So I gave up. No brave fighter, me.

Then it occurred to me that, yes, actually, trying to do things with my hands that are difficult is probably the best thing I can do to make them better. So…I’ll try. I haven’t thought of a theme yet.

And yes, that’s my actual thumbprint. I’ve used it multiple times in illustrations over the years. I even signed my artwork with it for a long time. I can never have a career as a burglar.

Have a good weekend!

You wild carefree radical you. I really HOPE you’re just using some print found online and pretending it’s yours. Putting your actual fingerprint online, full size, seems to be an extraordinarily foolish risky thing to do. Not in a million years would I do such a thing.

PS my thumbprint is very similar to yours. Huh.

Have you ever had your fortune told by having your fingerprints read?

If not, you should give it a whorl.

I just saw this on GAB and thought of you (hope you win):

Dissident Soaps

Sep 24

Are you a graphic artist? Do you know someone who is? Dissident Soaps is making employee t-shirts and we need you to design them!

They will be printed on a dark grey (around color #606060) American-made cotton shirt with the DS logo on the front breast. On the back, we want a stylized image of George Washington with the quote, “Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us no choice but a brave resistance, or the most abject submission.”

The winning submission will be awarded a Dissident Megapack (all currently produced products,) one of the completed shirts, AND a free year of Gab Pro!

Please send submissions to purchasing@dissidentsoaps.com by 15 October.

How about George Washington on horseback, pointing an extended back-brush instead of a sword?

Something like this:

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
