Hey all! I'm back to let you all know my Kickstarter to print Lighter than Heir vol. 1 relaunches March 3rd! I changed up a bit of it, found a more economical way to print, but kept the book content the same! So you get the same great book but we have a better chance of funding. The new goal is much smaller this time. It should do a lot better, here's hoping. I'm promoting it early to get the news out now. I also set up a prefundia which notifies you as soon as it launches!

No sign up required, just enter your email! link here


So yeah! If you'd like to help, I ask if you can share the news and prefundia for now! It's going to need all the help it could get! Thank you very much! Hope all is well on your sides!

Hey there, guys!

Nalem, where the hell have you been?
Man, what a hectic year! I've been busy working on my webcomic, freelance, and suffering on and off health issues. I'm EXhausted!

But I do have some good news, though!




Today, I launched a Kickstarter today to print Lighter than Heir: Volume 1! In case you don't know, Lighter than Heir is a webcomic I've been producing for the last few years. It's a military fantasy comic!

Please take some time to explore it! The kickstarter ends December 20th!

I'm promising a lot of goodies plus the pitch is ANIMATED with voices by Anjidu and Antfish!

Yeah! Fun stuff!

Anyhoo, I'm gonna get back to work now. You all take care! I hope you're all doing well! <3

I got a few inquiries about one of my ebay listings; It was a Cartman plush I was trying to unload. Unfortunately, those who asked were outside of the US, and I didn't have international shipping included.

Since it didn't sell, I relisted it. cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?… Now it has international shipping for those who wanted it earlier! I hope that helps.
Hey guys. I'm getting rid of some things so I'm selling some of my old toys. I got Dragon Ball Z, Pokemon, Cardcaptor Sakura, Invader Zim, and South Park toys up in my eBay store.

Hey guys, I have a new cartoon online right now! Check it out!

Hey everyone! Happy Friday! Today I present Pale dog's first "short short." It's a really short cartoon but hopefully just as fun. You can say it's kind of the successor to the old comics from my "Tastes Like Happy" blog.  They were usually anything from autobiographical comic strips to just jokes I wanted to tell. If everything goes well, here's the first! Enjoy!




Have a great weekend!
Well, like I've mentioned to you before, I'm still having issues with my dominant arm. After an MRI on Monday, they discovered one of the/THE problem.

I have some bad tendinitis and a muscle tear. The nurse didn't explain how severe the tear was, but I suppose I will get the full report in the mail soon. This explains a lot considering how horrible the pain would get. Anyway, I'm attempting to pay off my medical bills by providing my services for commissions and/or freelance work.  While I can't do as much as usual, I can still do a little, and that's better than nothing at all!

If you would like to help me at all, it would be most appreciated. I'm still taking  small commissions . I can draw, just in small doses (like 4-5 minutes at a time). Purchases from the etsy store can also help me out a lot, especially the newest listing in the store which regards custom sculpting.  It causes no stress and no pain to my arm.  It's a lot of fun too!  I know it could seem foolish to be working with an injured arm but sometimes we have to bite the nail and do what needs to be done. :) I think that's how the expression goes.

As for the status on Lighter than Heir , I'm planning to try to get it back up and going next week. If I work on a little bit each day, I should be able to crank out a comic. In case I can't, you'll be the first to know.

I apologize for the hold-ups and for inconveniencing any of you. The injury was by no means part of my plan this year, haha.

There's more to this blog, but it requires html dA doesn't support. Read the rest here

Tata for now!

Thanks for the birthday wishes! You guys are awesome! :)
So for the last year or so, I've been having reoccurring  issues in my dominant arm. It got better, for the most part, but overworking it was like horrible fire.

This past month it got even worse, to the point of excruciating. I had to quit my job to prevent further wear since my job was a loading dock job. It involves lots of heavy lifting and no one was really considerate of my issues. I guess I don't blame them. They have their own lives to worry about. I've seen doctor after doctor, after spending a ton on unnecessary treatment, including an x-ray, because that's what you do to check a muscle [note: sarcasm] and basically brushed me off on an orthopedist... which costs like... 5x more than this doctor. *groan* MRIs are flippin' expensive too. Way out of my price range. So I dunno,  I know my arm muscle's deteriorating and... I dunno what to do?  lol

Life's kind of being a spaz right now. I don't mean to sound like I'm the most miserable person on the planet or anything, because I'm not. I've got great friends and lots of awesome people in my life. I have a roof over my head and plenty of food to eat.  I, at least I think, have the rest of my health. So I'm grateful for all these things. I don't want pity or anything like that.  I just had a ton of plans of things I wanted to do, and they had to be put on hold. I was going to work on my next two graphic novels, man! DX Ugh. So I'm kind of not feeling so fine. I'm trying to remain optimistic, but this hurdle is really eating at me. It's even causing whatever's left of my faith to suffer, which has been also a big issue in my life for the last year. If I hear another person say "your arm's having issues because you're not praying enough," I'm gonna kick them in the face.

I'm at least practicing with my other arm in case the worst happens, I still got that. My left arm's getting plenty of rest so hopefully it'll be good to go again... maybe? I have no idea. I'm not even sure why I wrote this. lol. I have mentioned the arm issue, but I've been holding a lot of this in myself... I just needed a release. I've been alone a lot lately. Most of my friends have been busy with their lives. And that's awesome. Do your thing, guys. Mel loves you. <3

I've been reading a ton on food and diets, haha. So I'm not going crazy. I also read "L'il Depressed Boy" by Image comics recently. It's a fun little book you guys may enjoy. www.amazon.com/Lil-Depressed-B…

That's it from me. If you don't read this, whatever, yo. If you do, uh... thanks?
