I had the Kindle book version of "Guide to Understanding Introversion" up for sale on Amazon for a year and NOT ONE COPY SOLD.

So, instead, who would like a copy of the PDF?

THE PDFS ARE NOW FOR SALE!

Same price than the Kindle's ($5) but with NO stupid installment fees! Rexfordavenue@gmail.com is the Paypal, send and enjoy the pointless fruits of my labor!

For extras, enjoy what is possibly the most 1980's song that has ever buttered your ear toast with its sweet, sweet deliciousness:



No kidding - I love this 100% unironically. Boner-inducing synth sweeps FTW.

Hello.
I was born in South Candyland under the rule of Queen Frosting. I was raised in a strict Necronomic household by Nigerian parents who died in a freak child-rearing accident that left me alone and homeless at the tender age of thirty-four. After traveling Asia via balloon and sniping those FUCKING MONGOLIAN FUCKERS for ice cream money I started drawing cartoons about a homosexual super villain with a debilitating spinal disease.

I'm allergic to kiwi fruit.
Interests

Viktor's cat needs a name!!! Something his teenage daughter would come up with.

Not going to get the picture in before the contest end date (surprise assessment) but I will post it when it's done as I don't like half doing things

Any idea when you will be able to finish it? I'm perfectly fine pushing the end date back (I had planned to do that from the beginning)

No idea, as I want to use my tablet and the pen is spazzing out for it, to be honest I wasn't that interested in the contest to begin with lol

Well... no, not really. I don't see anything too wrong here. It's cute and it's clear he/she just needs practice.

First of all, I only criticize people who have been published, have a strong following, or are so rich and secure that my little whine-fests aren't going to hurt them. Anything mean I say about Greg Land will have him wiping his tears with a fifty dollar bill.

All I'm really pointing out is that the professionals make mistakes, too. Drawing is tough stuff. Hell, I myself keep drawing everyone's heads too big, and if it wasn't for Photoshop's editing features all my characters would be goofy bobbleheads. The difference, I guess, is that when I (and many others) see there's a problem we have the humility to fix it and not hide behind excuses like "It's just my style!" or "I'm so cool I don't make mistakes you're just a hater".

I never, repeat, NEVER pick on someone who is just having fun or trying really hard to get better. That's not fair. If someone had taken my early work and slammed it, I might have stopped drawing altogether. Who would want to do that? What kind of a bullying fuck would I have to be to go up to someone who is really trying to find their voice and shit on their dreams from the safety of a keyboard? A real huge douchey fuck, that's for sure.

In the words of Kevin Smith:
“Remember: It costs nothing to encourage an artist, and the potential benefits are staggering. A pat on the back to an artist now could one day result in your favorite film, or the cartoon you love to get stoned watching, or the song that saves your life. Discourage an artist, you get absolutely nothing in return, ever.”

Excuse me! Quick Question: Does being a transgender or a homosexual make you know everything about it's opposites, transphobia and homophobia?

Not quite everything. If we're talking about my own experiences I can't say that I'm an expert by any means. I've actually lived pretty phobia-free. If anything the autism has been a much larger challenge than being trans has for me.

I admit that I'm a rare case, though. Most homosexuals and trans people suffer pretty harshly.

In order to grasp everything about transphobia and homophobia a person would have to be a shapeshifting demigod capable of living as a gay man, a lesbian, a bisexual, an asexual, a pansexual, a transman, and a transwoman all within the same lifetime in multiple cultures, bringing forth a wealth of knowledge very few can even grasp but would probably never share due to suicidal depression.

(btw I'm just trolling here, no mean feelings. The idea came to mind and it was too silly not to type)
