TOO CONTROVERSIAL FOR PATREON! OOH LA LA!

God, it’s been so long that I’ve written a post here that I basically forget how, so hopefully I do this right.

This colouring page was cool in 2015 when I made and posted it on Patreon:

But now Patreon doesn’t want adult content creators on its platform to appease payment processing giants like PayPal, so it kicked all the camgirls off, and then it came for people like me, who had artistic nudity on their pages and did a mass suspension of our accounts. (Here’s an article about it where I’m sort of featured.) I’ve been suspended for 10 days and have put in 2 e-mails to Patreon, but have so far heard nothing back. I went to their community guidelines, tried to clean up my page as much as possible, and marked myself as “adult” like they want us to, which means I won’t show up in any Patreon searches, which I’m fine with because I don’t put ANY stock in searches in the slightest. I am all about sending people straight to the source via traditional media, which is gonna backfire on me because all my business cards and marketing prominently features SUNNYGRRRL.CLUB, which redirects straight to Patreon! I fully bought into their patronage deal! I was ALL IN! There is no other place on the internet where like, a gallery of my work from the past 3 years exists, it was all on Patreon.

To make matters worse, I have 2 art events next week, and again, all my new marketing all goes straight to Patreon, so if I’m still suspended, I can’t even market myself, making those events almost pointless because I have been making colouring pages for 3 years, so I don’t actually have a tonne to sell at an Art In The Park event or Sci Fi Street Party. (See my Facebook page for details on any of those events, btw. The first is July 14th and the Street Party is July 21st.) I was pretty much doing these events to draw live, in front of people, and give out business cards with my logo and¬†SunnyGrrrl.club on them, which, as mentioned, currently goes to Patreon and always has.

My plan B, is that if I’m still suspended on the 13th, I’ll point SunnyGrrrl.club to Etsy for the time being, and work super hard on getting a small webpage with a gallery put up for SunnyGrrrl.club. I asked my friend to help me do this and he said he would, so it’s doable, just not doable in an ideal time frame so I’m not even gonna worry about it until after these shows.

Anyway, yeah, I got suspended from Patreon for posting CARTOON DICKS. Literally.

Speaking of cartoon dicks, I have a current 100 Days Project going on called “100 Days of Dicks” or the “Dick A Day Challenge” where my friend challenged me to draw a dick a day on an index card for 100 days. Right now I’m on day 36 and I’ve yet to draw today’s dick, but so far I’ve gotten them all in on time. You can follow the project on its tumblr¬†100daysofdicks.tumblr.com or on Twitter because you literally cannot post dicks anywhere else apparently!

I can post dicks here though, so here’s a few from the project:

Anyway, today is mine and Blake’s 16th wedding anniversary so it’s RIBS & STRAWBERRY PIE DAY! So, I gotta go! Peace out, girl scouts!
