If you were offered a job as a storyboard artist for an upcoming cartoon, would you take it?
It depends on many factors. Pay, deadline, whether I’d have to relocate, length of project… if it didn’t completely flip all of my already delayed plans, yeah sure :O Always wanted to do character design and/or story boarding.
I’m gonna be in Massachusetts in 4 days for over a week *____* Yaaaaaayy, this is pretty much my first trip that isn’t business or work or escorting a sibling… it’s an actual vacation. Like a for realsie one. I am all kinds of excited. Been looking forward to this for like months.
I have a very weird question but, since I've taken up drawing my own comic traditionally, how do you keep your finished pages in nice condition? Do you just use a portfolio or just put them all in a box? I've always had a hard time keeping track of things once I've finished them >>;
My comic pages are in a big stack in the closet on top of a filing cabinet. They’re in good condition but I can’t say I’ve chosen the best storage method…
Not even a day passed and Smut Peddler pre-order is fully funded, meaning that the books will be printed and this anthology will exist on bookshelves and in actual shops! That’s gotta be some kinda record!
However, there’s still 30 days left before the kickstarter actually ends, and any extra funding will help print more Smut Peddler books, have them available at more shops and conventions, and will also contribute to bonuses for all of the artists and writers! This last part may be of interest to everyone who’s messaged me about wishing there was a way to pay me for my work — this way you can, by pledging, raising your pledge, and/or spreading the word! Those bonuses are gonna be great for the contributing artists who don’t make the convention rounds and won’t be selling books.
Updates will be shared by all the artists, as some incentives may change as other’s run out — so an incentive might pop up that you or someone you know may really want.
I’m also working on my own incentives for any fans of my stuff. Once I figure them out, if you can show me proof of pledging to the kickstarter, I might have something cute and sexy* for you ;> I’ll keep you posted.
Thanks to everyone who pledged! Help spread the word and advertise where you can. If you’d have told me 2 years ago that I’d be drawing porn for a living and my porn would get printed in a successfully funded book… I’d have cried cuz I thought you were making fun of me!
GOOD JOB EVERYONE
*no it’s not a kiss don’t be gross AND NO NOT THAT EITHER ya creep
Remember what I said about commissions being done today?
That was before my car stopped working this afternoon :U Getting it fixed tomorrow. Commissions’ll be done soon, tomorrow unless the car… I dunno, EXPLODES. I wouldn’t be surprised. I cannot wait until I can trade this lemon in.
I feel like I’m in PSA mode, writing this up right after reblogging that last post. I promise I’ll have some fun sketches up soon. But I had a talk with a friend about girls with body image problems and it made me realize a lot of people think a girl having a body image problem means that learning to like your body is how you get over it. No, that’s how you get over rolling out of bed, seeing your extra pudge and saying, “I let myself go, guess I won’t be wearing a swimsuit this summer.”
Recently, a well-meaning friend of mine disclosed my trans status to a friend of his, someone I hadn’t known previously. I don’t know that I ever would have found out that he had done so if his friend hadn’t slipped up and referred to me as…
You haven't been posting as much recently as you used to; Have you been busy recently, is everything alright? ( I should maybe also take this time to tell you that you are a great inspiration and that I value everything you make, which is why I want to make sure you're alright. ; o ; )
Everything is good! I’m just working on Slipshine and commissions for the most part, so I just have little to show til they’re finished. Also I yammer a lot on Twitter lately, so if it’s my endless stream of bullshit you miss, you might find it there!
edit: I do have a lot of personal stuff to deal with but it’s good and bad? Like yeah there’s shitty stuff, but there’s also stuff I’m over the damn clouds about, just giddy as hell. And I might be too distracted by that good stuff to come up for air and pay tumblr attention ##U.U## Don’t worry I’m doin’ just fine!
Q: I miss the formal dressing in public life that disappeared in the late sixties. Women don’t wear gloves and hats anymore. Men only wear suits and ties to the office and on special occasions. Dressing to go out in public was a necessity, especially for women and young ladies. Don’t you miss it?
A: No. If you couldn’t afford hats and gloves you were pretty much publicly marked as poor. There were no “good old days.”
I remember you saying you were planning on moving by the end of the year. If I may make a suggestion: don't go to Arizona. They just passed a bill stating that life begins at the start of a woman's menstrual cycle. Which means, as long as you live there, you'd legally be pregnant for a week every single month of the year. :T
Not sure if you are aware or not, but it seems that page 130 on "love me nice" is not posted on the "home" page. Anyway thanks for making such a great comic. Wish I could afford to check out your stuff on Slipshine.
I deactivated a few of my cacheing plugins — is it still doing that? It’s not the first time, and I have no idea why it’s doing that.
Someone asked a question I’d have answered publicly, but due to the specific problem I figured it’d be better to remove the Tumblr user’s name.
What advice can you give to someone who’s interested in drawing porn..? I won’t beat around the bush and be honest.. I’ve shown an interest in drawing pornography for a while but the only question is.. how do you go about doing it..? Personal relations wise I mean.. My parents know I’m a bit on the odd side and they know I have a love of anything artistic.. but how would I go about telling them I’d be doing that..? My friends are for it but I don’t want to be totally outcast from my family.
For starts, it’s none of their business that you would be drawing porn. I’m not saying it should be a secret, but I tell people I draw porn on a need-to-know basis. It’d help to know your living situation, how old you are, etc. But in general… why would it ever be their business?
Second, if you feel you need to tell them… I dunno, just tell them. I told my family about it over dinner, to reassure my mother that I had a paying job because she was worried about me. But I had a reason to tell her, it made her feel relieved that I was able to take care of myself, regardless of her thinking it was gross. I don’t think my mom likes it, but she’s also acknowledge that I am 24, supporting myself and taking care of myself — she knows her objections are unimportant.
So, I dunno. Like I said, tell your parents if you think you should or you want to. If you’re underage or something, or maybe they’re still supporting you and they have certain house rules, I would take that into consideration and respect their possible desires and not pursue porn. That’s just a matter of respect, if you’re being supported by someone else. However, if that’s not an issue, just do it. If they have objections… well, they just have objections. They can’t make you change, and if you think they’re gonna cut you out of their lives for drawing porn… well, you might have bigger problems than porn going on in that relationship.
So Dave Shabet took screenshots of his most recent page while he worked on it and … oh goodness, look at this thing. That’s a screenshot an hour at some points. I am constantly impressed by his pages. Dang, son.
