~ News! ~
I've been uploading content for my $5+ Patreons as promised :> Here are samples of what you see when I release publicly. (Note the lack of catpicspam! :) ) www.patreon.com/PinkAppleJam?t…
The Patreon support helps keep Biomecha afloat in tiny format, it helps contribute towards print costs, never-before-seen upload time and future new content investment.

Thanks for your support!

If you are a fan of 2D animation, please consider funding this campaign! I have contributed because I'm itching to animate in 2D again (the last time I did so involved expensive equipment only available at university...) If this campaign goes through there could be so much new, fun stuff to be discovered by you, created entirely by homegrown creators!

"Let’s revive hand drawn animation! Let’s get the fun and ease back into 2D! You, and the animation community, can now make this awesome dream tool happen!"

Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!

So, like - what is Patreon? Basically, it re-ignites the historical role of supporter + artist; the idea of “being a patron” - by making a small monthly Paypal donation to the artist, you’re completely helping by supporting the creator, helping them out so they can create work those friends and readers enjoy - a total investment :) That money helps me towards print and maintenance costs along that path.

I’ve never done an online pledge account, Kickstarter funder or anything like this. I’m really interested in the service that Patreon offers. As a contributor you can support me as a comic artist/illustrator even with a monthly $1 (approx. 60p) - it’s not a massive donation, so to me it totally feels better than the pressure for both sides to contribute/provide immediately for that lump sum, like Kickstarter - though of course I would not complain if anyone wanted to go for the bigger sums and cancel after a while! Patreon offers this; donations are taken at the end of each month so after it has left your account via PayPal, you can cancel. 

Biomecha an intermittently-published comic by myself (Laura Watton-Davies). It combines science fiction with romantic comedy/tragedy. Launched in 1995, it was one of the earliest British comics to be inspired by Japanese comics. It is a project that maintains it’s presence close to my heart and is worked on whenever I get chance. I work on all types of projects to earn income to ensure bills are paid, which of course takes time away from my comic-making goal, so the Patreon buffer would absolutely help improve that focus. The support from Patreon would mean more edits can be made faster, ensuring the books could come out quicker. Your support would mean the project could ramp up the Biomecha Project completion process like nothing ever before!

This is a story of mine which has taken a while to unfold and I know it needs to end. It must end! And like most self-published pieces, it would not be possible without fellow readers, artists, friends. Thank you for your patience while I roll with these new ways of tech-progression which enables my stories to get out there.

Thank you for reading ^_^

Happy New Year, everyone!

I've been booking myself up for selling my work at comic events around the UK. These are the events I will be at :: pinkapplejam.com/eventsandfeed…

Hope to see you there!
A quick note to watchers and people I've spoken to online or IRL recently :) 

I hope you have been having a good December with time to reflect. It's been another crazy year but I am settled more now. My health has been all right and a few more things than usual have fallen into place for me. You can't plan much in life, so what you do plan is all the more nicer when it works out - and what you receive unexpectedly is a super-happy bonus!

I've got my short term plans sorted and my long term ones are nestled in the pipeline too. Thanks again for all the wonderful support I have received as a creative this year, luv yuu! See you in 2014 and have a very Merry Christmas!
Machester Japanese Culture Festival 2013 :: www.dokidokifestival.com/ ♥

Just found out I am located on Table A17! If you're visiting Doki Doki Festival, please visit to say hello :D

Micro-interview with me via Camaloon! Have you read it yet? :)  camaloon.co.uk/blog/micro-inte…

Biomecha itself :: The entire comic's ending clocks in at 150+ pages (!), but it HAS been thumbnailed and has NOT been forgotten.

Onwards! :) Thanks for your support!!
I saw this on another journal and though it was pretty useful ^_^

---------- Commishy status -------------

Requests: Due to time with work and commissions, I don't really have the time to do requests. Apologies!

Collaborations: You can ask, but similar to the above, likely no time :c

Colouring your art/your lines: Sorry, another no - it takes a bit too much time :c.

You colour my lines: if you see lineart, be my guest. If you post on DA, link back to the original lineart and credit (please!)

Art trades: Ask, depending on time ^_^

Commissions: Totes closed because of personal project priority.

Comic Pitches: Paid commissions considered, but currently I am focusing on completing my personal long-running comic.

Have a Question? Ask and I will most likely respond, but please use the "search" option on DA, Google, Tumblr etc. Saves you waiting on an answer ;)

Sooooo busy!! I do appreciate everyone all visits my page and even leave a message or watch me, you are too kind!

Thanks for reading ^_^
