I have to say, when I saw you in person the other night, I was not sure exactly what was going on, but I had a hunch. I understand your situation now and fully accept and respect it. I give you a lot of credit for being so brave and that sketch you did of yourself is lovely! Is there anything I can do to make you feel more comfortable when we meet next? Preferred name, pronouns, etc.?

Thank you!

With names, Bitmap for art things, and Madelyn/Madi for everything else.

I prefer “she” pronouns, but also am fine with “they”. Please avoid “he”.

Thing I drew while out with comics people.

My friend Teresa who I’m moving in with (& has no online presence somehow), asked me if I’d planned a scale diagram of my room yet.

Consumption is Dreath, Creation is Life.
This is my artist mantra. It describes the cycle I and many other artists I know go through, where we are happiest creating, and consume WAY TOO MUCH when we’re not.It reminds me that while consumption of art is why I MAKE art, if I do not take what I have consumed myself and create through it, it does not matter. We exist in a participatory culture, and sharing what you find, adding your own thoughts, and maybe even going and creating some sort of content of your own is the point of life. It is for me, anyways.Go out there, take what you love, and make it into something new for someone else to love.

Today is International Transgender Day of Visibility

I like most people had no idea about this until about 6 hours ago. This seems deeply ironic, but now that I know about it, it’s time to tell you all something I’ve progressively been revealing more and more on other social media sites, but given I mostly post things I make on Tumblr, I’ve talked less about it here.

I am a Trans Woman

That’s why you’ve seen a lot of drawings of a female version of me over the past year, as well as a bunch of other subtle things I’m sure you noticed if you were looking.

I have a Secret Tumblr, Raster Girl: http://rastergirl.tumblr.com/

You can follow me there for things specifically about transgender stuff, and eventually it will just be my personal blog, with this one being my main one for Bazzelwaki as it already is.

Questions? SEND ME AN ASK!

April is about to start, and that means there is ONE MONTH left to buy a commision from me here and help me move to Chicago come may 1st!

The GBC is currently at 13%

I Am Doing Commissions!

At the start of May I am moving to to Chicago, and right now I am doing it with with all my savings. To increase my chances of successfully settling in once I arrive, I am turning to you all for support.

My Goal: To raise $1000, to help me move to Chicago.

If this works, I will be able to move with a very basic level of security, which if you like seeing me make comics and other art, is very important.

What will I draw?

ALMOST ANYTHING. I can draw nearly anything, for almost any purpose.

For the $10-$20 Tiers If you ask for something complex or significantly different than what you see here, on my Deviantart, or Bazzelwaki.com, it may come out less refined than you want, but feel free to ask.

If I find the request personally offensive I’ll email you asking if there’s something else you’d like me to draw.

Tiers:

When paying for the $10-$20 Tiers, hit “Add” while checking out to tell me what you want me to draw (if you miss this step, I’ll just email the address you pay with, and ask directly)

I do not guarantee your commision will be completed immediately, just that it will be put in a queue and completed once the commissions in front of it are completed. I will make every effort to complete them in the most timely manner, and will continuously update people on the status of the campaign and commissions.


The GBC Initiative will end once $1000 is reached, or on May 1st

Whichever comes first really. At that time the commission tiers will close, and I will set up a standard set of commission rates which will be more formal and and priced higher.
