I have the worst possible combination of traits for making a good cover; a love of eye searing colors and fonts, and no idea how to use them properly.
Uh. Any tips on good comic cover design are really appreciated. This is far from the final design and I’m very willing to change it. I can already see some stuff to fix.
Aphelion is already out and available! But I’m trying to make an new cover format that I can use for all six comics.

If there are any moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents and more thinking about letting their little bbs decide if they wants theirs ears pierced, PLEASE read this and consider finding a clear, reputable tattoo shop in your area.

Reblogging because this is what I did when getting my ears pierced (as an adult). I found one with a good reputation/proper inspections, the guy who did them was great at answering my questions, experienced, used a proper and sterile needle, and gave me a card for any follow up questions. He was a professional at that stuff.
Honestly wish my mother knew this when I got my ears done. I went to a dirty mall and had it all four holes done with a gun. Then I spent years dealing with infections and puss that never went away. After letting them close, I later went a real piercing place/tattoo parlor, and never had a problem since!
Basically I have been blessed to be close to people who work in hiring and were very, very willing to pass along their knowledge and tips and since a lot of people I know on here seem mystified by these things, I will share my vast wealth of knowledge with…
