Announcing Chainmail Bikini!
At a time when the female perspective and female presence and in gaming has once again come under fire, Chainmail Bikini seeks to celebrate the experience of women as players, makers, and critics of gaming. Female creators have come together to make an anthology of comics that is not only entertaining but insightful. From videogames to table top role play to collectible card games, Chainmail Bikini will show that while women are not always the target market for gaming, they are a vital and thoroughly engaged part of it, and are eager to express their personal take on the medium.
Featuring the talents of:
Aatmaja PandyaAnna Anthropy & Solomon FletcherAnna RoseAnnie MokCaitlin Rose BoyleCarey PietschElizabeth SiminsHazel NewlevantIasmin Omar AtaJane MaiKinoko EvansLaura LannesMaggie Siegel-BereleMegan BrennanMeghan Landsmerritt kopas & Mia SchwartzMiranda HarmonMK ReedMolly OstertagSera Stanton
I’m still searching for a few more contributors, so submissions are open from now until October 15th, 2014. If you are a woman interested in contributing a 1-8 page comic about gaming, please visit the submission guidelines.
Chainmail Bikini will launch a Kickstarter in March 2015. Until then, keep playing!

Are you guys psyched for this? I’m psyched for this \o/

this is Anna. she’s an illustrator. I saw her at the chiptune show at Art Share while I was tabling for my friends’ band. she looked really rad and I wanted to take a pic to draw her but was a shy doofus and just missed her. but then I dropped by Anime Expo the next day she was there, tabling for Sanshee. she was really cool to talk to! even funnier, we had some mutual acquaintances and also recognized each other’s twitter handles. small world!
lesson learned: talk to people!

THANKS SO MUCH MIKE! new friends are the best!! please go check out his awesome art now, he’s mad talented with excellent taste!

    purplelanternstudio:

    From top to bottom, some shots of my studio and bedroom door with my treasures obtained from Zinefeast when I was able to leave my table and check out everyone else’s stuff:

    astralrejection and her wonderful poster of badass cute goings on with Totoro jamming on the keyboard! I had to have this, and I knew it would look great next to the EVILSTICK, a Dollar Store Gold wand that I picked up a few years ago at a dollar store. It’s all kinds of wonderful, and even laughs evilly when you press the button. It also says it can ‘send out the luster of the beauty’ (on the package) whatever that means. The list goes on and on. BEST WAND.

    asherlevenson is really wonderful with digital colors and his line-work is really solid. I just love his Dune poster.

    bighonkk's cyber mall catalogue is tongue in cheek awesome. I love the fact that it even has a fake order form in the back. So good! We had a nice exchange and he bought one of my buttons. Great stuff!

    The lovely pin is from vreniwasaman I love crystals and occult stuff so this was a must buy.

    Baby Mollusk (Rachel Gordon) is awesome and made this banner that spoke to me in so many ways. She had other banners and her new tapes for sale too. She called them ‘congratulatory banners’ that included stuff like ‘cried in the sandwich line’ and other such gems.

    Anyway, bumping all these cool people! Check them out! Thanks guys! 

    I don’t know who you are, but you bought a bunch of stuff from my friends, and we should also probably be friends because you ALSO HAVE AN EVILSTICK. I’ve had mine since middle school and treasure it even though it’s gotten pretty beat up over the years. 

    EVILSTICK

    Anyway cheers! I’m glad you enjoyed Zinefeast.

    i can not get OVER the evilstick at all, so cool, and very honored to 
    have
     my print next to it!!! ^____^ 

    thank
     you so much for stopping by, zinefeast was a blast!

Hey guys,
Glitch PokéZine features 68 illustrations by 68 artists, making it double the size of both Ghost &amp; Ice PokéZine. 
The printing of Glitch PokéZine will be very expensive. Although we don’t have the means to pay the artists, each of them will receive free copy of the zine. The remaining copies will be sold on BigCartel (just as the previous 2 were). It would be ideal to sell them for as low as possible.
This is why we’re reaching out to you guys to raise money for the printing. We will use ALL of the donated money to lower the price of Glitch PokéZine. We’d prefer to charge less than $20 per zine (for reference, Ice PokéZine was 36 pages &amp; $12).
Donators of $3 or more will receive a free Japanese Pokémon card from 1996-2001. Provide us with your info / address and one will be mailed to you.
We would like to be as upfront and transparent about this process as possible, so please let us know if you have any questions. Any and all donations are appreciated. Love you guys!
-Jordan &amp; Iasmin


i have a piece in this awesome zine, AND jordan + iasmin are some wonderful people who deserve yr support. please help us if you have the means to. &lt;3
