Why You Should Pay Artists For Sample Pages

A reader on our Facebook Page asked

Hey Alex, I’m curious, when you look for artists, do you go strictly by their portfolio or do you pay for sample panels?

I thought my answer might be useful for others so I’m posting it up here. :-)

Yaoi Review: Loud Snow by Tina Anderson and Amelie Belcher

Yaoi Review: Loud Snow by Tina Anderson and Amelie Belcher

Not without its flaws, this is a sweet and engaging yaoi comic by independent Western creators that delivers laughs and smiles. If you like your guy-on-guy romance to be cute and fun with strong characters who get adorably worked up and deserve to be together, it’s definitely worth the Kindle price of $4.99 and even the $8.00 pre-order for the print book. You won’t be disappointed.

Yaoi Review: Future Lovers by Saika Kunieda

Likable, non-cliché characters with real depth, great art and an exceptionally solid and credible love story make for a great read. Despite a somewhat weaker, more conventional B-story, this book is definitely worth your $12.95.

Straight Friends Don't Get It? Show Them: "Are You Straight?"

Straight Friends Don’t Get It? Show Them: “Are You Straight?”

A lot of folks I showed this video to — both straight and gay — found it to be perfect to show to their friends who don’t quite “get it”. It certainly helps bring home the subtler forms of prejudice and ignorance that are hard for all of us to shake. Since cool people come to this blog, I decided it was worth sharing here. And let’s face it – he’s a cutie.
