Why- I would LOVE a week free of Roomie so I can catch up and work on other projects. I also love seeing other people have their take on my characters<3
What- While I do prefer guest strips, an illustration may be accepted if it tells a story by itself.
Who- ANYONE can send their Roomie Guest Strips, but you do have to realize that there will be a quality check before putting it up. Not just art-wise, but also keeping it in character, and not transforming it into your fantasy (aka: NO Roomie/Lillian kissing, guys ;) )
How- Contact me via my email adress: firstname.lastname@example.org to send any guest strips. If you want to draw something, but you’re not sure if it’ll be accepted in the end, you can send me your idea/storyline for the guest strip in question, along with examples of your art, so I can tell you if it all looks good, or if there are details to improve, and such. If you have a question, you can post it in the comments below so I can answer and everyone can look it up.
When- The deadline is on Sunday the 5th of August. You have more than 3 weeks to work on the guest strip! Should be enough :)
That’s it! Thanks in advance to anyone who might be interested!
Lots of love,
About a month ago, we had a successful little fundraiser to help us with the website and encourage me to work on GGaR more often. The donators “bought” 17 strips, and as explained in the previous post, drawing a strip every day until the 19th would get them all done!
With all the encouragement and love (and convincing on my marketing wizard’s side),Go Get a Roomie will now update five times a week, Monday through Friday. This basically means that it’s my full-time job. This webcomic, with your help, is all I need now to make a simple but satisfying living. It’s a dream come true, and I still can’t realize how lucky I am!
*the first random doodles (drawn months ago) of what would become The Little One
Remember folks, you’ve been so amazing at last week’s fundraiser that I am now in your debt, and have to feed you some Roomie every day to pay up! So come back regularly if you don’t want to be left behind :)
You have “bought” 17 extra strips. If I make 4 extras every week it adds up to 7 strips, and so, each day. Do a bit of a math boogie, and you’ll find that the daily update will stop on the 19th of June. At that moment, I’ll have done all of the extra strips.
But that does not necessarily mean I’ll go back to only 3 strips a week… ;)
Thanks a thousand folds to every reader out there! Couldn’t have done all this without you.
I kinda missed it, sorry girl. *ahem*
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROOMIE YOU’RE TWO YEARS OLD ON MAY 8TH!!
*it is in the Roomiegion belief that She was raised by rainbows and white clouds through Her whole childhood
First things first, I would like to officially announce that I LOVE YOU ALL. There, it’s been said. I’m sure you all were shocked by the news, because that’s absolutely not something I’d say often, huh? ;)
No seriously. Thank you, to all my readers. Every single one of you, for following Roomie’s adventure, and hey! Even liking it! Your comments are pure joy. And every time someone new pops up and starts with “I just read the entire archive…” well, first I ask myself if it was a such a sane thing to do, then when I realize how much love there is in your comments for Roomie& co…
Well. Let’s just say you amaze me constantly, and give me smiles and even happy tears. (No, really!) You also show interest and respect for each other, and it’s creating, what someone recently called, a “family” I can be most proud of.
Oh and before I throw you my usual “Cheers!”, here’s a little NSFW comic tournament I’ve been nominated in, if you feel like voting for my comic, and please only do it if you feel it deserves it:
Haha, I just realized how manipulating this might look like. “I love you all YOU GUYS ARE SO AMAZI– vote for my comic now.”
Cheers y’all <3
And so, so much love,
