doujinpress is taking a hiatus and smartpress seems really pricey (~6.5usd per book I'm planning)

anyone had reliable and affordable experiences with any online printing places? ><
I'm thinking of setting aside a set time for streaming. This way it will encourage me to stream more, as well as be able to stream during the time majority of you guys will be free.

Please comment here with your ideal time for my stream! Include day of the week, time and timezone please~!
First of all, thank you very very much whoever was the kind soul who donated me 1-month subscription on DA! :heart::heart:

Secondly, I just wanted to give a shameless plug that I have a Patreon page now! If you guys have been following me for a while now, you might know my story, but for those who don't know, here's a tl;dr:

I dropped out of college after 2 years because my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. After taking care of her and eventually her passing on, I've been struggling between what I should do with my life. My father wanted to give me an "easier" life by moving me back to China and suggesting I teach english part time, as that can earn a good living in China. However, my passion is and only always be drawing and design, so I still tried to get temp jobs related to art. Sadly, the startup company I did work for flopped even though I spend my entire last year drawing everything for their mobile game. Once again at a crossroads, I bit the bullet and decided I wanted to return to the states, and do my best to support myself using my passion and skill to make art. So now here I am, living with my significant other's family, sharing a room with my hubby in their basement.

After spending most of my time working on that game and being unable to keep in much contact with the "outside world" from inside China's firewall, I've fallen behind on drawing. I'm starting from square one again, but I am very hopeful for the future! I know how hard I can work and how much I can give up to chase my passion and my dream of being a freelance illustrator and character designer. But I can't do it alone...

So I hope, if anyone here enjoys my art, and wishes to help, can help support my journey. That's why I opened a Patreon.

There's my small story! Patreon is a site where you can support your favorite creators and get exclusive rewards from them directly, only available to supporters! If any kind generous soul does help me out, you will receive regular rewards that will never ever be available anywhere else, such as progress videos, full PSD files with layers, sketches, private request streams, custom adopts and more!

EDIT: After a month I finally received a reply back from the convention, and they gave me this hilariously callous reply:

Dear Sir,

Our apologies for coming back to you later than expected, we were looking for information about your troubles.

We understand your situation, but we unfortunately cannot take action without a claim from the authors while on the convention.

If you happen to come visit one of our conventions, we invite you to come talk to a staff member so we can see what we can do.

Remaining available for further information,

Best regards,

Marion SMAL



So basically, if a person steals art and makes money off of stolen art, but no creators are around to counter it, they can just keep on selling. Great.


Original post below:

A watcher has brought to my attention one of my works being printed on shirts and sold at a Con in France. They suspect other artists are victims as well. I don't know what I can do, as the watcher told me the con people refused to do anything about the booth selling the shirts. If anyone can possible provide any help or information, that would be greatly appreciated. I don't have a facebook account, but I doubt if I did make one to contact them it would make any difference.

Here is my original artwork:
