#Sorry for the reblog
Oh hey, I went and painted that thing I shouldn’t even have drawn in the first place.
Daaaaaang, Izzy cleans up real nice.
He thanks you for noticing.

I promise I won’t actually send these awful people to your awesome internet shindig. Apart from anything else, Pixie is liable to end up on the wrong side of PG-13 even when she’s technically fully dressed.

#Sorry about the recent spate of text posts
I’m beginning to get a few (very polite and not at all pushy) queries along the lines of ‘When are you actually going to do this thing you keep yammering on about,’ so I guess it’s high time for some kind of status report. I’m going to try to finish a rough draft of the full script by the end of December. I won’t lie, I’m having a world of trouble with the writing side of this whole enterprise. Not counting the whiny dreck I turned out in my teens (much of it about reptilian sky pirates, from what little I recall), I’ve really never turned my hand to creative writing before. So far, I’ve been enjoying the hell out of writing the dialogue — although whether it’s actually any good or not remains to be seen — but the plot keeps falling apart like a wet cake. So, assuming I can get some degree of control over this increasingly bizarre and tangled narrative, I’m going to try to get some test pages up in January and hopefully start posting pages regularly sometime around March.
So in summary, yes, I will do the thing. The thing may not be any good, and you may not like it, but I promise I will do the thing.
Found this while rummaging through some old files. I have no idea why I drew it, but it captures my current mood pretty accurately.
Assorted burlesque lady warmup doodles.
I say warmup doodles, but I ended up re-drawing that gal with the sousaphone three times and she still hasn’t turned out the way I intended.
Finally got around to doing another print run! The lines aren’t quite as crisp and the blacks aren’t quite as black as they were last time ‘round, plus a few of them aren’t folded perfectly symmetrically, so I’m lowering the price a little to US$7 a pop + $2 for postage within the US (my shipping calculations were a bit off last time, sorry), and $4 for postage elsewhere. They make great stocking stuffers, birdcage liners and flyswatters. Get one before the mice in my walls start shredding them up for nesting material.
Evening folks. So I finally printed out that zine I was yakking about earlier, and whaddaya know, it doesn’t look half bad! Here are a few photos snapped in the stygian gloom of my bedroom;
It’s 5.5” x 8.5” and contains 40 pages in glorious, eye-catching monochrome. Watch as a small man with a silver nose jitterbugs his spats off for ten lousy cents a dance. Perfect for fans of facial prosthetics, strangely-proportioned ladies and improbable dance moves.
All inquiries and PayPal payments to firstname.lastname@example.org, thanks! And since I’m very new to this selling-things-on-the-internet lark, I should probably mention that if I make a balls-up of your order in any way, your money will be cheerfully refunded.
Thank you and goodnight!
[Also, this is probably as good a time as any to reiterate that this tumblr (and comic, when it exists) is going to be intermittently NSFW. People are going to get hurt, get killed, get laid, get their kit off, express various forms of human (and mollusk) sexuality, use cusswords, ingest illicit substances and make extraordinarily poor decisions. None of it is going to be particularly disturbing, but I just thought I’d better lay my cards out.]
#Art by others
Late as always!
Did these for the Halloween > Day of the Dead season :/ As you can plainly see, I’m a couple of days tardy…
Anyways, the character is not mine: that credit goes to the wonderful creator of Tanglefoot (a.k.a. “Anna”). Go check her work at http://tanglefootcomic.tumblr.com/
I apologize for the stifness ^_^; but I am unable to do the incredible work Anna does with the poses.
Javier, a.k.a. Sir Pumpkinhead, had been offering me sage advice and friendly words over on DeviantArt since I was a spotty little teenager, and in addition to being my nomination for Nicest Guy on the Internet he is also a dab hand with the old pen-and-ink and a wonderful writer to boot, and he went and drew this and made me grin like an idiot until my face hurt.
Just an idea; could you maybe do a timeline of some of the characters? I'd love to see Izzy and Pixie age into the wonderfully hideous creatures they are today!
A full timeline might involve some spoilers, but by way of compensation, here’s Pixie during her burlesque days along with General George, her giant Belzubian land slug. Also a couple of little Izzys. For the sake of thrift, Pixie used to make all his clothing out of her old striptease costumes.
