I’m very excited to announce the second Adam WarRock 24 Rap-A-Thon! I could not be more honored to be doing this Rap-A-Thon to benefit not only adamwarrock.com, but also to benefit RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual assault organization.

It’s always been my hope that this site and everything that happens on it would be for some kind of good, and after the success of last the Rap-A-Thon where your donations helped raise thousands of dollars to replace stolen equipment, as well as benefit RAINN – I wanted to try it again, this time in a bit of a more official capacity. So from the get-go, I will be raising money not only to, uh, live but also to benefit RAINN directly!

How does the Rap-A-Thon work? 

INSTRUCTIONS

Last year, I made 16 songs in a 24 hour period. That’s right. SIXTEEN. That’s me finding a beat, writing the song, recording it, processing it and posting it live. We raised almost $8,000.00 last time, and all the excess proceeds raised after replacing my stolen equipment was donated directly to RAINN, to a cause that I feel pretty strongly about.

Did you know…

  • Every 2 minutes, somewhere in America, someone is sexually assaulted.
  • 1 in 6 U.S. women are victims of sexual assault, and 1 in 33 men.
  • About 44% of rape victims are under age 18, and 80% are under age 30.
  • College-aged women are 4 times more likely to be the victim of sexual assault.
  • 6 out of every 10 sexual assaults are not reported to the police.
  • About 2/3 of all rapes are committed by someone who is known to the victim.

This, in addition to the pervasive rape culture that continually shows up in comics, in television, in movies — all the while having people incredibly close to me, loved ones who are survivors of sexual abuse and assault.

I wanted to do another Rap-A-Thon, and this time, I wanted to do something that meant something more than just buying a new computer. So hopefully you’ll pledge and be here on October 18 to see if I can break my last record of sixteen songs in 24 hours, and let’s try to do some good in the process.

To show our support for the unfortunate Hard-drive failure that andywclift suffered this week I thought I’d mix things up a little bit this #ff #followfriday.

I’ve put a secret call out for artists to have a go at recreating the amazing #BertieBear in their own style and tag it on facebook, twitter, instagram and tumblr as #fluffyfriday.

Andy may have just lost the only just completed pages to Bertie Bear #3 but he has our support.

From 9am these recreations should start hitting the web, if I’ve not spoken to you and you want to get involved, just do the same.

I’ll start with mine!

I took my little brother (who falls on the autism spectrum) to see Guardians of the Galaxy and after this scene he lit up like a Christmas tree and screamed “He’s like me! He can’t do metaphors!” And for the rest of the film my brother stared at Drax in a state of rapture. 

So for the last 6 days I have heard my brother repeatedly quote all of the Drax lines from the movie verbatim (one of his talents), begin studying vocabulary test words, and tell everyone he knows that people with autism can also be superheroes.

Now I am not saying that Drax the Destroyer is, or was ever, intended to be autistic. All I am saying is that it warmed my heart to see my brother have an opportunity to identify himself with a character known for his strength, badassness, and honor. And that is pretty damn awesome. 

So while I adored Guardians of the Galaxy as a great fun loving film with cool characters I can do nothing but thank Marvel Studios and Dave Bautista for finally bringing a superhero to the screen that my little brother can relate to.

Lovely story!

Some awesome leg tutorials done by n3m0s1s.

Because legs are the hardest thing to draw for me. Seriously, I’ll have a character with an awesome upper torso, then spaghetti legs.

Good tips on drawing legs and feet.
