after years of struggling through crappy situations, i finally seem to be in a place to where i can pay for all my essentials which is really excellent and i’m super grateful and relieved BELIEVE YOU ME. BUT! i have come to the gradual realization that i am just NOT going to be able to afford a new computer in the near future, it’s going to take forever to save because while i can afford the things i need i don’t really have any disposable income atm. i’ve been struggling with this insanely awful hp pavillion since 2007 or something — the model was defective but no recall was issued, there was a class action lawsuit but nothing really came of it and the thing is really on it’s last leg and has been for a while now. i can use browsers and photoshop (that’s basically it y__y) but not really at the same time and i have to constantly save whatever i’m working on because the computer just shuts down randomly from overheating even though an external fan is constantly on beneath it. BASICALLY IT IS A PIECE OF SHIT :^D i would like to livestream draws and use programs efficiently and not at the pace of a snail, maybe play minecraft again? #__# it would just be really nice to have a reliable, working computer methinks.
i have prints and stuff up at society6, shirts over on skreened, original art up at my etsy shop, i’m still offering avatar/icon hed commissions, and if you REALLYREALLY want to and have the extra cash (please don’t even think about doing this if it is not actually EXTRA for you @__@) you can donate to my paypal too. i know there’s lots of other causes/people/etc that are more worthy of anyone’s attention/income but i also know that can be said of any cause someone is interested in, yanno? basically, it would help me towards starting up my webcomic faster since that is my goal right now, regularworkjob doesn’t allow overtime and by only doing less time consuming commissions and earning a bit of money through prints/shirt sales i can focus on putting together the first pages of the comic and start getting it out there B:
even if you can’t help out, thank you for liking me and/or my art enough to read this far! i wish we could all just wander the earth as robotic nomads, shelter and food wouldn’t be necessary and our minds would all be linked through the wired, i would just draw in a field of sunflowers and send my day’s work to all interested parties with just a thought as a the sun set over the mountains in the distance # __#/
weja’s one of my favorite lineartists, please help out! I’ve been on her society6 for like 30 mins and I still don’t know which ones I want yet, there’s too much good stuff here people :0

GET TO KNOW YOUR ZINSTER: Emily Parrish
What was your first zine about and when was it made?
Last year I teamed up with Kane Lynch to create Lake Cat, a zine which tells the 100% factual and true story of our search for a legendary vicious cat creature which lives in the Oakland hills.
Describe your most recent zine.
Most recently I have been working on Sunrise, a book which illustrates the oldest easter celebration in the country. It deals with ritual, music and community.
Of all the things you’ve ever made, zine-related or otherwise, what’s your one favorite?
In addition to drawing and printmaking I work with textiles, primarily weaving. In the last few years I’ve been aiming to bring my fiber work and printed work together, resulting in a series of pieces, some more aesthetically pleasing than others, which I’m most excited about. My current fave is a woven wall hanging incorporating printed strips.
