Adjusting the Posting Clock

The problem with being a one man art team is that poor Chris works himself to exhaustion drawing, inking, coloring, lettering, and posting the pages of our comic. My part of the partnership is fairly easy: I write plot, scenes, dialog, and character development and drop it in Chris's lap; then I get to edit the finished product (within reason); and finally I get to show off the comic to my friends claiming "look at my uber cool creation!" All the while, 99% of the effort is Chris's, and nearly 50% of the credit goes to me. It really isn't fair, but that's the way of things.
So here's the dilemna. Though I am a fairly competent graphic designer, and I can do some good illustration work, my art style is nothing close to Chris's. I'll be better off doing the equivalent of "fan art" of Lineage, or maybe we could say "another artist's interpretation" rather than try to lay my hands on Chris's Wacom!
So we're stuck with the reality that since we can't afford to hire Chris an inker, a colorist, or a letterer, we have to admit to his being Only Human! It is quite hard for him to admit, as he continually tries to prove the universe wrong by trying to literally draw his life into continuance without such meager necessities as food, shelter, companionship, WiFi (okay, not the last... he can't upload his art without WiFi... darn first world problems!).
Because Chris can not clone himself, nor does he have a time turner, nor can he thin dimensional barriers so other aspects of himself can take on some of the burden, we must move to an "every other week" schedule for posting page updates. We apologize. We really do. But we think it is better Chris maintain his health and sanity (both of which have been strained recently) by cutting back on the demands of weekly posting.
Lineage will post bi-weekly
for the foreseeable future!

Involving ourselves in our Community!

There is a lot of "cred" given to artists and authors who create LGBTQ oriented media or who simply claim to be a member of the LGBTQ community. As with any minority group, members of our community generally like to support the efforts of other members of the community to strengthen and enhance all our lives. However, being a part of the LGBTQ community is more to Chris and myself than simply being a gay artist and a bisexual writer -- we involve ourselves in both online and face-to-face organizations to address LGBTQ concerns and issues today.  As we come from very different backgrounds both geographically and socially, our efforts seldom overlap, but when it comes to online community outreach we are of the same mind -- do all we can to get the word out and to support through networking.

With that in mind, I am spreading the word about a very ambitious project conceived by the Clemson Alumni Society for Equality. Our members have funded an annual scholarship for LGBTQ students each year through their generous donations, but we want something more permanent... something that will not be dependent upon the ebb and flow of donations over the long term. As such, we've created an endowment fund for the scholarship which would maintain the scholarship into perpetuity.

Our goal is to create a $50k endowment to support the scholarship, and we have managed to obtain commitments for over $22k in funding. Unfortunately, if we don't obtain a minimum of $25k in funding before the end of the 2015-2016 academic year, the endowment will be forfeit.

Please help fund our scholarship for LGBTQ students attending Clemson University and help us promote diversity support at one of the South's best public universities!
