Hi all. September already, eh? Well, I guess that means I need to start thinking about Nintober again, right?
Well, this year I need to do things a little differently. I'm moving house, planning a wedding... and that basically means I can't do a full 31 days of Nintober. Time is not on my side this year!
However, I will be doing a short version for the final 10 days of October. And I am considering a few options. Let me know what you think:
1. Rather than collecting for the MS Society, I will be collecting for a mental health charity in memory of my brother who died last October.
2. I have my own list of possible entries and suggestions... BUT, how would people feel about donating a certain amount of money in order to request specific Nintendo monsters? I'm thinking donations of £20 will get you a requested monster of your choice. Of course there's only going to be 10 slots, but that would raise £200!
3. I'm also considering running screen recording software while I draw and uploading the sped-up versions to YouTube. These will allow you to see the process involved in the creation of each Nintober entry. Any revenue I make from the videos will go towards the charity.
Just a few ideas I'm throwing around right now. Would you be interested in donating in this way?

Autumn: the only period where Fry reliably shows up.
Well, after all these years, I'm still a jobless student, so I probably won't be donating more (sorry). Your idea seems to be nice though, and I guess I'll just look forward to it. There's nothing I want particularly.
The "10 Days of Nintober" project is just 2 weeks away. Have you ever wanted to choose the monsters that appear in Nintober? Have you ever wished I wasn't limited to just drawing Nintendo monsters?
Well, now's your chance to prove how much you want it. By donating £20 to a charity doing brilliant mental health work, you can decide which monster I will draw for Nintober, and select from ANY videogame monster, no matter how un-Nintendo it is.
This year, all donations to Nintober (no matter how small or in whatever currency) will go towards the CLASP charity, in memory of my brother who committed suicide one year ago. CLASP raises awareness and supports those suffering from mental illnesses and work towards suicide prevention. It's a great cause.
If you are interested in requesting a monster, contact me to let me know which monster you would like drawn, and then submit your donation to: JustGiving - I will then add you to the calendar and your monster will be drawn in the run-up to Halloween!
And if you can't spare that kind of moneys, but would like to support CLASP (or Nintober) anyway, then please donate whatever you can. It's all welcome!
