Loading Artist

Patreon now per MONTH!


Hey everyone! As of now my Patreon is set to be PER MONTH instead of PER COMIC! This is a good thing! Want to hear my reasons? Sure you do!

Reasons my Patreon is now monthly:

Simpler! Now you don’t need to think about setting a pledge per comic and a max monthly limit because your pledge IS the monthly limit.

Accurate! The $ number on my Patreon page will now show exactly how much I will actually earn this month. Back with ‘per comic’, the number only showed how much I’d get for the first comic in the month, and then actually be less and less as I continue posting comics throughout the month (as people’s max monthly limits would begin to kick in).

More comics! The main reason I originally went ‘per comic’ was because I started Patreon back when I was still going to my non-related day job every day and didn’t always have the time (or energy) to post a comic. Now that I’m doing this FULL TIME (all thanks to my patrons) I am dedicated to posting AT LEAST once a week, and now even posting TWICE a week!!

That pretty much sums it up.

If you haven’t already checked out my Patreon page but love the idea of supporting Loading Artist financially, give it a look!

Thanks everyone!

Website Updates 2015

One of the benefits of having been a games user interface artist is that I’m never completely happy with anything, therefore I’m always on the look out for ways I can improve on the site’s interface.

So.. welcome to a (slightly) improved version of Loading Artist! I’ve taken all of your suggestions (and bug reports) into consideration and got together with my go-to web developer Jordan (from Extra Ordinary comics) to do some stuff!

What’s new?

Redesigned front page! Now there are more blog posts visible as well as highlights from other areas of the site. I’ll change these highlights every now and then.

Super Supporters are now visible on mobile!

Improved functionality of the Super Supporters! Now the special animations play on hover (on desktop) and play on tap (on mobile/touch devices)! If you haven’t seen them, or didn’t realise there even were special animations, try it out under the comic here!

Keyboard support! Browse between the comics using the left and right arrow keys on your keyboard! Press the ? key for a random comic! (doesn’t require the Shift key, just the / will do)

New bug! Using the arrow/? keys whilst editing a comment will now browse between the comics, oops! (Thanks to Daniel Wilson for pointing this out (I’ve added it to the new list of things to consider for next time))

Improved merch options beneath relevant comics! Now comics have the ability to have specific merch links relevant to that comic (instead of just a generic “shirt!” link that points to the shirt store). Here’s an example, and here’s another!

Mobile drop down menu is easier to access and has larger text.

Better ad replacements if ads are not being shown. (no more messy text)

.. and a bunch of various minor positional tweaks and fixes, as well as some behind the scenes improvements.

Anyway, that’s it for website stuff for now. Time to go back to focusing on filling up that comic archive of mine! Thanks for reading!

My First TV Interview

I don’t do very well in front of a camera. My cheeks flush red, my eyes get glassy, and overall I look (and act) completely stoned. Not the ideal look to have on a children’s television show. Luckily a combination of the lighting and the resolution of my webcam disguises this pretty well.   Something […]
