Merry Christmas, happy holidays! I have some new illustrations since my last post on The Bygone Bureau, written by Bridey Lee, inspired by both Christmas and Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver.  And two posts on Bushwick Daily, written by Frances Gill and Dr. Lisa Levy respectfully. The two images became a series, and maybe I’ll get to complete it with a third. Enjoy your holidays and vacations!

Weekend Sketchbook

Friday, August 6th, 2010

I hate that I can’t show off any of my new projects, so here’s some sketches instead. The first two was from a live modeling session. And lastly is a character sketch from a new serial comic I’m working on. I love you, still!

Female Comics and Females in Comics

Monday, June 7th, 2010

I’ve got my feet in both comics culture and the culture of stand-up comedy, and I’m seeing two similar conversations happening. Female comedians and female comic readers both face similar issues being that stand-up and comic books are largely male dominated.

First off, I am not a woman. I do not claim to be an expert in feminism or femininity. Just check my dating track record with women.  (Hint: it’s non-existent.) But my audience is surprisingly mostly women. I’ve received more responses, comments, and e-mails from women than men. Most of the people who have approached me after a stand-up show are women. And the people who most get excited about seeing my work at conventions and end up buying my comic books and prints are women.

THE RESOURCES

  • Jessie Geller writes how she feels as a female comic.
  • Here’s the article by Kate Hendricks linked to at the bottom of previous source, here. Also, here is the Vanity Fair article, “Who says Women Aren’t Funny?” from 2008.
  • A new web documentary series called Welcome to the Stage recently just popped up. It’s about stand-up comedy in San Francisco, and though it hasn’t really brought up the issue of “female comedy”, it follows 4 female stand-up comedians exclusively.

I did a few sketches of girls in sunglasses. I usually draw them to warm-up before tackling any inking projects. Let’s recharge this blog with more content!
