Moving something from
30 16 days of comics here.
Something I did not use and eventually lost interest in, as in the illustration and not the toy
We’re looking for contributors! Our theme for the next issue? Nostalgia.
If you have any poetry, essays, columns, book/film/album reviews, illustrations, photographs, fashion editorials, travel photo diary, etc. that you want published, so long as they’re theme-appropriate, we’ll publish it! (Childhood memories? Regret? Reminiscing? If the element of the past is there, you’re right on track!)
Send your entires at email@example.com, and don’t forget to include a hi-res copy of a childhood/baby portrait as well as a 30-word bio written in the third person.

Give this a go, local/international artsy friends! My first contribution to Stache was for their December issue of last year too, so that is nostalgia for you?
TYPHOON HAIYAN RIPS THROUGH CENTRAL PHILIPPINES
Typhoon Haiyan is a Category 5 storm, the strongest typhoon of 2013 and said to be the “most powerful ever” to make landfall (with winds near 195-200 mph). Perspective: Superstorm Sandy was at 95mph when it hit New Jersey; Hurricane Katrina at 129mph when it hit land.
- Pre-emptive evacuations affect more than 161,000 families or more than 790,000 people in 37 provinces
- Typhoon Haiyan as seen from space
- Haiyan makes 6 landfalls - it affected an island chain in the central Philippines, making landfall in six islands. It gained wind power as it traversed through waters in between.
- Haiyan traverses areas affected by magnitude 7.1 earthquake - The earthquake left more than 200 dead dead on October 16; 1000 injured; 350,000 displaced. The survivors have been living in tents and evacuation areas. It passed through Leyte, Samar, Cebu (2.5 million residents), among others. All with densely populated cities, some of which are the poorest provinces in the country.
- 100 people killed in Tacloban — first estimate of casualties in the city reported today, November 9. Because the communication lines are down, the news centers have yet to take stock of the full extent of the damage. But the numbers are still expected to rise. The devastation was described as if a tsunami had wracked through it.
- 2:03PM 11/9: An estimated 4 million people have been affected by the typhoon
- 4:20PM 11/9: 90% of Baco Town in Oriental Mindoro flooded
- 4:55 PM 11/9: Bodies still scattered in Leyte as Visayas in shock
- 5:19PM 11/9: Negros Occidental under a state of calamity
- 7:34PM 11/9: Local officials expect the number of bodies found in Tacloban to reach 500
- eta: 7:45PM 11/9: Iloilo and Palawan declare state of calamity
- eta: 8:04PM 11/9: Update: 134 reported dead
- eta: 8:30PM 11/9: Thousands homeless in Ormoc, Leyte
- eta3: 10PM 11/9: Red Cross estimates 1,200 casualties
- eta3: 3AM 11/10: Aerial photo of Bantayan Island after Haiyan
- eta3: 3:23AM 11/10: At least 200 believed dead in Eastern Samar
- eta4: 11/0: Latest death toll could be 10,000
The victims need all the help they can get. Cities have been leveled, buildings made of concrete were destroyed by strong winds and storm surges. Communications have yet to be reestablished in most of the areas affected by the typhoon. The full picture left behind by Haiyan has yet to be established yet the devastation reported on television is already extensive. The government is bracing for large-scale relief operations. Virtually 1/3 of the country has been ravaged by this natural disaster. And we need help.

Anonymous asked: Where do you get your pretty textures? As in if you google them, what do you put in the search bar :)) Awesome stuff by the way! You inspire me :')
'paper texture' does the job most of the time; sometimes it's 'stained paper' or even 'textured paper' if I'm going for something dirty or I have more to cover up, haha.
There are a ton of resource sites and blogs out there to consider if you’re feeling adventurous! I used to get mine on LJ back when graphics communities were still a thing (which was like 8 years ago because I am old?).
And thank you! This was awfully nice and uplifting to read.

ooohhhh for what issue is this for? :D
The October 2013 issue! Dani has art in there as well <3
A very simplified representation of clothes from the 1920s - 1950s for an article in Stache, and a rekindled friendship with digital lines! These fit almost perfectly on the separate lady drawings I did for the spreads - the blouse gaps in the second picture make way for hair.
“Why the name Stache?”
Whenever someone asks that questions, I always find myself torn between the truth and the embellished white lie. I tell people some complicated reason I made up six months after our first magazine release but as I leave my editor-in-chief post behind (more on this later), I want to disclose the real reason why I picked the name Stache; it was because I couldn’t think of anything else and it just felt right.
