I’m headed East tomorrow to prepare for this thing that’s happening in 3.5 weeks. A lot is going on in the world that is freaking me out; militarized police clashing with citizens over racially motivated murder, the tragic death of a beloved comedy icon… EBOLA. But also I am doing this matrimony thing and that is mostly fab but kinda stressful and boy if I have no idea how anything will turn out, so I am channelling a very special guide to chaos to get me through!
“My cemetery is in Key Biscane. It’s one of the prettiest in the world. Lovely trees, the sky is blue, the birds… The one in Los Copa is really shit. What a pain in the ass you are. It’s true- you’re not young and you’re not new and you do make people laugh. And me? I’m still with you because you make me laugh. So you know what I’ve got to do? I’ve got to sell my plot in Key Biscane so I can get one next to you in that shithole, Los Copa, so I never miss a laugh.”
23 Female Cartoonists On Drawing Their Bodies -
Let’s get naked!
“We need women’s bodies in our stories, having sex and getting our periods and eating food and doing whatever bodies do, so that the things our bodies do are normalized and present — so that boys don’t grow up thinking women are gross or whores or pigs or any other horrible epithet.” —Lucy Knisley
Some ladies said some really fascinating things about presenting female bodies in comics! I am so proud to be among these artists.
I was incredibly lucky to get to go to SDCC as a special guest this year! I had a rad time, and doodled a lot while I was there.
Check out my rambly sketchbook from the week!
I’m about six pages away from filling my whole little sketchbook with convention doodles. And there’s still so many fun costumes I wanna draw outside! The show is over, but the doodling isn’t.
