Signal Boost: “Albenzauber“

Hello all!

I’ve got a special signal boost today. Carmilla DeWinter is an author who did an interview with Asexual Artists a while back (Tumblr & WordPress). She’s got a new book out entitled Albenzauber. Carmilla is also going to be doing a reading on April 23rd in Mainz, Germany.

Here’s all the information about the book:

“Albenzauber” (Elven Charms) is about the elf Nives, who has raised her prince Cir in the human realm after saving him from a coup. When she accidentally uses the elven charm on a young human male, thus driving him out of his mind, she and Cir return home to find a cure. There they find out that the usurper, beautiful and power-hungry Noctuola, is preparing a war with the humans. Cir is determined to save his heritage and asks a seer for help: They will have to find a human being, neither man nor woman, who is immune to the elven charms. This seems highly unlikely, until they meet the androgynous human mage Heilika. Heilika does agree to help them, while forcing Nives to question everything she believes about herself.

You’ll meet two aces, one of them genderqueer with female pronouns, plus everything a sword and sorcery adventure needs.

Unfortunately, only available in German.

Albenzauber 1200pt

I’ll be reading an excerpt on Sunday, April 23rd, in Mainz, Germany. (Link for more info: https://carmilladewinter.com/2017/04/09/lesung-5/

So if you’re in Germany, please go show a fellow ace some love!

Thanks, everybody!

Signal Boost for a Musician

Hi everyone!

Apologies for the extended absence (I’ve got a deadline looming and I’m still taking ASL classes). Interview posting will resume Monday 🙂

Anyhow, I should have posted this earlier, but an artist interviewed on this site (Claire: WordPress & Tumblr ) sent me a message and I thought some of you lovely followers would be interested:

Hey there! It’s Claire – you did an interview with me a little bit ago but I just wanted to let you know I created a SoundCloud and released an EP on there if anyone’s interested in checking it out! https://soundcloud.com/claire-kaelin

So go visit the link, send Claire some love.

Signal Boost: Success 5000

Hello all!

I have a bit of an unusual boost for all you lovely followers. Not too long ago, I interviewed a fantastic cinematographer named James Hastings (interview here: Tumblr & WordPress). He recently finished working on a music video for a musical comedy duo.

The video can be found here: I Wanna Eat Everything

The band itself is not ace, but James did excellent work on the video and feels they deserve a bit more exposure. 🙂

So give it a watch, leave a like and/or a nice comment, show them some love!

Call for Interviewees

Hello all!

Once again, I’m low on interviewees. Since I don’t have the time to constantly post calls every single time I’m running low, I’m hoping to use this post as a kind of a reminder:

ASEXUAL ARTISTS IS OPEN FOR INTERVIEWS YEAR-ROUND!

I’m always looking for artists who are on the spectrum to interview. Any and all kinds of artists are welcome.

This is including but not limited to:

WRITERS: all genres and forms are welcome (novelists, short stories, poetry, flash fiction, etc). It doesn’t matter if you’re unpublished, just starting out, a student, a hobbyist, or established. Traditionally published, self-published, small press, etc. You’re all welcome and you all have something to offer.

VISUAL ARTISTS: Self explanatory, any kind of visual art you can imagine (photography, painting, sketching, drawing, sculpture, installation, etc.).

FANARTISTS: Another self-explanatory category. Cosplay, visual, fanfiction, etc. Whatever you do in your fandom (any and all fandoms welcome), you’re an artist.

FILMMAKERS: YouTubers, directors, cinematographers, anything that has to do with making films (short, features, documentaries, etc).

PERFORMANCE ARTS: actors, theater arts, singers, mimes, any sort of performers.

DANCERS: Any kind of dance style you can imagine is welcome here (ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, burlesque, belly-dancing, ballroom, etc.)

MUSICIANS: playing instruments, composing, singing, anything involving music

CULINARY: maybe your medium of choice is food. If so, you’re welcome here.

CRAFTS: any sort of craft you can think of (sewing, knitting, crocheting, candle making, jewelry making, etc.)

All levels of artists are welcome: whether you’re a student or a professional, just starting out or already established. If you create, you have something to offer and therefore I want to interview you 🙂

If you’re still unsure whether or not your art qualifies (there’s a 97.9% chance it will), and your question isn’t answered in the F.A.Q., please contact me at laurenjankowski27@gmail.com

If you want to be interviewed, please email me at the same address (laurenjankowski27@gmail.com)

This site continues because I get requests for interviews. If the interviews run out, this site will remain as a resource 🙂 Updates will continue as long as there are aces out there willing to be interviewed.

Thank you, everybody.


 

I just want all you amazing, talented, wonderful artists who have already been interviewed: you are making such a difference.

Giving an interview may seem like a small thing, perhaps even insignificant, but believe me when I say that so many aces have found comfort and inspiration in your words. I have received numerous messages about how much this blog means to people, especially to aces still coming to terms with their identity. That’s a truly wonderful thing 😀

So please, keep those interview requests coming!

Signal Boost: Weird Middle School Smells

Hi everyone!

Foster Eber was recently interviewed by this site (Tumblr & WordPress) and he has just completed work on his first animated short.

He has written a post on his personal Tumblr about it, found here.

So please, check out the video on YouTube and show Foster some love. It’s great and he put a lot of work into it, which shows.

 

Signal Boost: Emily Griggs

Today we have a special signal boost.

Emily Griggs was interviewed for this site a while ago (Tumblr & WordPress). She’s the author of the phenomenal webcomic Heartless (which was also signal boosted).

Emily has been keeping busy and now has her very own YouTube channel. In her message, she states:

“I’ve recently embarked on a new creative endeavor: starting an art-based YouTube channel, which you can find at https://www.youtube.com/c/SweetIngenuity . I’ve got just shy of a dozen videos so far, with new stuff being added (I hope) every Thursday.

People checking out the channel would really help me out, and I hope to return the favour by providing useful art tutorials and advice wherever possible. It’d be great to build up a little, supportive community of artists, all trying to get better together 🙂 “

She also included the following screen caps:
