We work in a police force full of dudes. We gotta have each other’s backs, okay?
So great! Already missing this!
I’m still plugging away at my current commissions. Sorry to those who are still waiting, I thank you for you patience. There’ve been a few hitches in the process, but things are moving along. Any that are outlying should be finished up soon. A good sized batch of finished pieces are going out now.
Wolverine’s a favorite of mine, so I always enjoy getting a chance to put pen to the dude. Loved this storyline, so it’s double fun!!
Today I witnessed something amazing. Almost in stark contrast to yesterday, today I saw tangible impact of lady-representation in comics.
At the bookstore I work at, we have a dedicated Adventure Time section. This family came in and those kids were SO EXCITED to see their favourite characters in comics. I talked them through each OGN and series compilation, explaining what they all were and in what order they should be read, and this little girl’s entire life was changed. You could see it on her face.
The moment I mentioned Kate Leth (and that, yes, she is a girl.) this little girl’s face lit up like Christmas morning. I don’t know if it just never occurred to her that girls can work in comics but the excitement and wonder that left the store in her was a privilege to see. I ended up selling them the Fionna & Cake’s, all the OGN’s, and an AT doodle book. She left begging her dad to help her learn how to draw Marceline comics. (And he was happy to comply!)
Kate Leth has left an everlasting impression on this little girl just by existing and working in the industry. I honestly hope to someday be able to see such an impact on someone from my own work. Ladies in comics is important. The representation on the page, and behind them, is important. Having a reflection of yourself in the content you enjoy is important. I hope that little girl grows up to be a famous comic author someday.
It was a very good day.
I don’t even know what to say, I think my heart exploded. This is, I think, the best response I could ever hope for.

In case you missed it yesterday…
You’re all gonna want to grab this! Fantastic team on this book! I mean… just look at it!!
Anything Kirby is a fun time for me! I love getting to play in his toy box!
This was a fun commission. I’ve only drawn the Flash once or twice, and never Captain Cold. So this was a nice treat!
The Creature from the Black Lagoon! Another commission. This dude is too much fun to draw!

Fuck you jake
Wow! That’s awesome!
Here’s another case of commissions giving me the opportunity to draw something/ someone I wouldn’t have thought of. This is Thrall, war chief (former) of the Horde, from World of Warcraft. He was a ton of fun to draw! I’ve long been an admirer of Blizzard’s design crew. Amazing work!
