A belated birthday gift for my good comics buddy googfriday! Modern AU of her ADORABLE characters Georgie and Afia from her amazing, beautiful webcomic Balderdash! Victoria is a huge inspiration to be and B! is one of my favorite comics, so I was happy to finally do some fanart for her/it. I’m sure you can see some of her influence in this piece! 

Anyhoo, happy happy birthday V!!!

"Where is Home?" is a comic and illustration anthology I launched early this summer on Kickstarter. We successfully smashed through our goal of $4k, which is huge for a relatively unknown collection of artists who attempted something like this for the first time!

Well, we enjoyed the experience so much the first time that we’re going to attempt it again! Volume 2 of “Where is Home?” will launch next summer, should we garner enough interest and enthusiasm for the project a second time around.

And we want a much larger volume this time around! We hit 60 pages for our first volume, but I want to hit 100. Maybe 120!! Who knows!

We had over 80 artists apply for volume 2, which completely floored me! So many passionate and talented artists poured in to make their mark, and it was an extremely difficult decision to narrow them down to the 30 I had originally planned for. So I pushed my comfort number to 38! And I’m pleased to introduce them to you now!

COMIC ARTISTS

ILLUSTRATION ARTISTS

It’s going to be an absolutely FANTASTIC publication, and I’m super thrilled to be heading it!! I hope you’ll be there in May to support our kickstarter campaign to springboard this book into print!

Yayyy! I’m really excited to be a part of this!

Here are a couple of Animal Crossing gijinkas that I posted on twitter a little while back - two of my favorite villagers, Bones and Merengue! WHAT CUTIES! I really want to draw more of these for warm-ups soon. What are your favorite villagers?

I’m REALLY EXCITED about Steven Universe returning on August 21st, so I dug up this sketch of Amethyst from my wips and polished it up a little! She’s my faaave! 

Throwback Thursday too………sometime last June! Here’s an image I made for a (now indefinitely postponed?) monster girl zine. I don’t think I ever shared it! 

Clearly I was interested in very shiny things last year. 

A few twitter doodles from last night! I randomly had an idea for a ghost girl character who’s obsessed with Monster High-type dolls, and falls head over heels for her new werewolf classmate because of that! Tsundere werewolf girl is not super impressed. I haven’t thought up any names for ‘em yet but my twitter peeps seemed to like them, so I thought I’d share with you tumblr folks too. :) A monster girl shoujo comic would be SUPER CUTE so I gotta do that someday.
FYI I’ve been posting sketches and whatnot a lot more frequently on my twitter and instagram, so if you want to follow me there I’m pennyloafing on twitter, and pennyloafs on instagram. :DDD

This is my basic process for just about every strip I’ve made! I’m currently experimenting with writing a full script first, but it’s difficult for me to separate the writing from the visuals when I’m working on a comic. I end up writing totally in prose, which I don’t think is super useful for making comics! Still learning. 

Also, I didn’t mention it above…but procrastination is a big part of my process, too. ;)

If you’ve ever wondered how I make comics, I did a brief comic about it for this week’s Comix Warriors challenge! 

A quick Wonder Woman for a Sketch Dailies prompt on twitter a few days ago! I love thinking of her as a big, muscular Amazon rather than the wispier version of some portrayals, so I tried go in that direction with the sketch. She’s ready to kick mortal butt and take names!

I drew the main cast of my two planned comics last night as a superrrrrrrr quick exercise on height/body types. I posted these on twitter, but I thought you lovely tumblr folks might be interested to see them too. A lot of the designs aren’t final, but I was pretty happy that I’ve got a variety of shapes going on already. I want to represent a wide variety of people whenever possible. :)
 If you’re curious, their names are listed as captions on the images!

How I feel when I share comic ideas with my twitter friends.

My submission for the Sparkler Monthly Share Your World contest! COMPLETELY inspired by twitter rambles between me and my comics buds. But really, if comics can’t be an outlet to create hot cartoon boyfriends/girlfriends, then really what’s the point? :P

Goshhhh, this message really punched me right in the heartguts. I know when we’re young it can be really hard to hear the voices that we SHOULD be hearing, voices like yoursThank you for being a supportive and kind older sibling and trying to help your sister any way you can. You rock! I am so so glad that I could uplift your sister and make her feel more secure. That is literally the greatest thing. ;__; 

Your message inspired me to draw something to remind her to ignore the haters and listen to her own heart. Make sure she knows that she has NO obligation to listen to anyone that doesn’t respect her!

i feel like people arent doing enough to promote body positivity for women with more body hair than what is considered 'normal' by society. i love that everyone is promoting skinny/not skinny bodies but what about all other body types

I completely agree that body hair acceptance for women is a great issue to stand behind! I have personally promoted it and talked about it many times, though I can definitely see how it’s not promoted as much as fat acceptance and body shape positivity.

By all means, anon, be the change that you believe in and spread the word about celebrating women with body hair! It’s natural, it’s cool, and it’s cute, and everyone should know it! :)
