@Curator I can confirm, all of this is above board! It's very late for me so I'm going to bed now, but tomorrow I'll make sure to make a post for all our patrons letting them know to switch their pledges. :bear_hugs:

Hello, I'm Heather, aka. Rheall. I'm an artist of sorts, and of :masto_comic: ComicsCamp.Club 🏕️

The last few months I've really felt I haven't been the best Curator I could have been, and my anxiety about the job and my performance in it began to spike. I realized it was time for me to pass the torch, so-to-speak.

I'm glad I've got the time to focus on ComicsCamp.Club now. I've sorely neglected it, and it is my baby, after all! ☺️ Here I go for another creative, hopefully comics-filled adventure! 🏕️ :camp_counselor:

Seriously, though… being •ART's Admin was such an amazing thing for me. It felt *so good* to be able to take care of and provide for the community that welcomed me to the :fediverse:Fediverse for so long. I've always loved being the host, you know, cultivating community, and it felt so good and so right to do it for •ART. Thanks, @CuratorClassic, for believing in me. :da_cuddle:

It's done… it's finally done. :da_faint:

Mastodon.ART is now safe in the hands of @welshpixie. She's going to *rock* at the job.

I'm so glad I was able to find someone to take over that I trust and feel so delighted about. Del was such a welcoming figure when I first joined •ART back in 2017, and I know she's going to be great at being Curator.

As for me… time for me to go breathe for a little while. :da_love:

@leebee Welcome, Leebee! I hope you enjoy this cozy place on the web. Let us know if you have any questions, though I'm sure @welshpixie will be a fantastic guide. :da_ahoy: Looking forward to your photos and nature walks!

To be fair, I got a Fine Arts degree, and even trying to relate to my peers on the same level about contemporary/modern fine art made be feel the same way, so ¯\_༼ ಥ ‿ ಥ ༽_/¯

The only time I've cried when writing an essay was when I was driven to tears trying to write one about the Platonic Ideals. 🤬

I feel like whenever I tried to study philosophy or critical theory in uni my lessons always went like this:

Prof: "So, it's like x."

Me: "Like x, got it"

Prof: "No, you misunderstand. It's xy."

Me: "Okay… xy. I get it."

Prof: "No, no, it's more than that. It's x(y+z)"

Me: "… soooo x(y+z)?"

Prof: "No, you're not listening, it's √(π(x(y+z))^(γ / φ))"

Me: 💥💥💥

A reminder than I turned my Stardew Valley portraits into a mod so you can have them in your own game! ^^

You can download it here:

I've also been playing a *lot* of Stardew Valley since the 1.5 update dropped. I got the whole set. :D

So I haven't posted any Sims 4 stuff here for a while, but that's because I succumbed to the dark side and made a Simblr blog for all my simming adventures.

I'm currently having a ton of fun writing and sharing the gameplay of my Faux-Legacy save, and I also made some CC that I'm pretty proud of. If that sounds like fun to you, click through and check it out! ^^

@fortifieduniverse @sikkdays @mastohost That's why I want more people to make more general purpose instances, or instances that cater to a bunch of artistic genres, like .ART does.

There are a few that specialize, like ComicsCamp.Club, but ideally they'd all be federating and supporting each other in a nice, creative, federated community.

One can dream. ^^

Every time I start reading Tamora Pierce novels again I get the urge to draw the characters.

Here are a couple I've done in the past. Alanna and Moonlight, Kel and Jump/Peachblossom/birds, and Daine. I really want to redo my drawing of Daine, though, I'd definitely draw her differently now (with darker skin, for one).

@dualhammers I was thinking for complete tech newbs, more or less like me. So just pointing out resources to make setting up an instance easy, like, and some advice on what it's like to run an instance and why you might want to.

Just to make it seem less intimidating and get people thinking about the possibility if they never have before.

Does anyone have any good resources for running your own Mastodon Instance that I could point people to? I want to encourage people to start their own instances and make more diverse communities, but it's really daunting without some kind of guide/introduction to the whole MastoAdmin thing.

I know about, are there any others out there? ^^


Hypothetically this person might also have access to a small midi keyboard, so compatibility with that would be useful too 👀

Just out of curiosity, if someone with zero experience is interested in learning how to make music, preferably digitally, what software would be best for that? :thinking_rotate:
