Cannabear Holographic Vinyl Sticker

Cannabear Holographic Vinyl Sticker published on

I’m sure you’re all reading my comics for OUT FRONT Magazine religiously, and with great zeal. As such, you may remember this stoner bear from the comic that ran in the December 2021 issue. Well, my sticker vendor had a sale on holographic stickers, so more or less on a whim I decided to turn the Cannabear into a pretty, shiny sticker. And now you can obtain one (or more!) for your very own:

OUT FRONT Magazine – February 2022 issue, plus e-commerce stuff

OUT FRONT Magazine – February 2022 issue, plus e-commerce stuff published on

The latest OUT FRONT Magazine is on the stands now (if you’re in the Denver area, that is), and I have a new comic in there! This seemed like a good issue to do a comic looking at just a few of the different manifestations that asexuality can take.

You can read the magazine online via their website (I’m on page 6).

I also made a public Patreon post wherein I go into some detail about the coloring choices for this comic.

E-commerce? What?

If you are not hooked into cartoonist Twitter, there’s been a big, BIG explosion this morning regarding Gumroad as a platform for selling indie comics. I’m not sure I want to get into the whole story here, but suffice it to say, Gumroad decided to take what could have been a very minor problem and dealt with it in a professional manner. Instead, they apparently, for reasons that are absolutely opaque to me, decided they’d rather bully and abuse a huge swath of creators in public, on Twitter, and then delete a bunch of those abusive tweets.

I have not quite picked my jaw up off the floor from seeing how badly they handled this whole thing. But it made me not trust them as a company going forward. My problem now is that I have to figure out a new platform for selling my self-published work. Since all of this blew up just this morning, I haven’t had a chance to figure out yet what my new thing is going to be. It may take me some days to sort it out (this is the kind of thing I dread having to deal with even under normal circumstances, nevermind the current howling mess).

I am also currently sidelined to some extent. My left shoulder, a.k.a. my drawing shoulder, seized up the other day, and I have not been able to un-seize it, no matter how much I rest or stretch or worry it with trigger point massagers. So I’m going back to physical therapy, but that’s a bit over a week away. As such, my time on the computer and at the drafting table is limited for awhile yet.

ANYWAY, once I sort out my new biz for selling comics online, I will post about it here.

Cheers,

Dylan

Merry Solstice from the Mari Lwyd!

Merry Solstice from the Mari Lwyd! published on

Subscribe to my Patreon to see work-in-progress images of this piece!

The Mari Lwyd (pronounced Mah-ri Lloyd) is a wassailing folk custom found in South Wales. The name means “grey mare,” and refers to a hobby horse made from a horse’s skull mounted on a pole, which is carried by an individual hidden under a sackcloth.

A group of people would accompany the Mari Lwyd to local houses, where they would request entry by singing a song. The householders would be expected to turn them away, replying through song, and the two sides would continue singing their responses to one another until one side relented. If the householders gave in first, the Mari Lwyd team would be invited in and supplied with food and drink.

This tradition typically takes place sometime between the winter solstice and New Year’s Day. While some scholars have tried to append a Christian interpretation to the Mari Lwyd, claiming it somehow represents the Virgin Mary (?!?!), my own personal belief is that it stems from Welsh pranksters trying to scam booze and food from their neighbors by way of a horrifying puppet, and is closer in spirit to Halloween than Christmas.

As someone of Welsh descent, I wanted to create a winter holiday card that spoke to that aspect of my heritage, and which leans into my (perhaps relentless) love of Halloween.

Either way, I wish you a happy time this winter, with bountiful food and drink of your choosing!

Cheers,

Dylan
