@vicorva I sew owls (https://glitterkitten.co.uk/@FrazzledBrynn/103443967476920737) and make digital art that you can purchase over here! FrazzledBrynn.redbubble.com
@vicorva I do traditional art, and I post everything here on Mastodon first. You can of course follow my Instagram or YouTube, there I post timelapse videos that I find incredibly calming to watch. As I deal with the #corona stress with doing more art, more art is headed this way.
I also do a free art giveaway right now. 💙

Art, whatever's latest: https://www.deviantart.com/wetdryvac - currently some electronic symbol calligraphy and some mixed media mandalas.
@vicorva Something else which people might care about is our 200 Word RPG Challenge entry, "Words over the Airwaves" https://200wordrpg.github.io/2019/rpg/finalist/2019/10/07/WordsOvertheAirwaves.html
It's a tabletop RPG designed to be played via text interfaces by players who are remote to each other, which is probably fitting.
Please let us know if you do play it - we'd love to hear what your experience is.
Includes a bunch of different color palettes and also a quiet rain noise effect that you can adjust in volume. And if you have PICO-8, the effect is designed to loop seamlessly for 8 seconds, which is the default GIF length.

@packbat this is really nice :)
@xyzzy thank you!
I have music on the Youtubes mostly nerdy/bardic/folky acoustic stuff:
And also my webcomic, which is fantasy adventuring based on Caucasus folklore and legends:
@vicorva i do video game streams that i archive on youtube (with my favorites linked in the video directory on my website) and experimental electronic music
spotify doesn't really pay me shit, so if you wanna give me money, my current stuff is name your own price on bandcamp. my website has my whole discography streamable without trackers
support links are at the bottom of my website (https://xenonfiber.space/)
@vicorva When our poor internet allows, we stream video games 6 nights a week with our small community of LGBTQIA+ folks at http://truck.community . We start around 8:30pm Central time, except for Saturdays, internet permitting.
Sometimes we're even pretty funny! You can find our archive over at http://youtube.truck.community with hundreds of hours of streams dating back several years.
@vicorva A while back, I wrote a book of essays critical of the New Atheist authors, and put it out onto the world under a pseudonym. Don't know that it will make anyone feel better under current circumstances, but it's totally free, if you're in that sort of mood: https://archive.org/details/AgainstTheIrreligiousRight/mode/2up
@vicorva We write free stories about trans magical girls, though the plot is more geared towards adults.
Most of it is unfinished, but we do have an actual, completed novella titled The Shadow's Prison which is set to be part of a trilogy. It's pretty dark, though, so mind the content warnings.

@vicorva My webcomic Black Dram is ending in a few days! Read it here: https://blackdram.com/comic/1 (link goes to the first page to avoid spoilers, but please check the about page for CWs, as this is a horror-ish story with some nasty visuals)
There's also a preorder going on right now for the hardcover print version, if that's more your style: https://gumroad.com/l/blackdram
You can either listen on spotify so I get a few cents for every 10 plays:
Or you can listen on Soundcloud where the quality is a bit worse:
(Note AppleMusic, Pandora, Tidal, etc. also work but I don't have links)
