Girl POW-er!

Hello friends!  I'm so excited to announce a new project I'm involved in! Her-POW! New Adventures of Vintage Comic Book Heroines!

It is a crowd-funding campaign via Seed & Spark to get some wonderful vintage FEMALE heroes to star in their own short films.  In the golden and silver age of comics (1940s-1950s) these bad-ass ladies headlined their own comic strips.  Here's a bit about the project:

Thanks to the internet, many of these strips can now be found online. And thanks to many of these characters falling into the public domain, these amazing heroines can now return for new adventures!
Of the over 75 characters we identified in the public domain, our writers chose three for our first round of filmmaking. They are: The Woman in Red, The Veiled Avenger, and Ghost Woman. (We will share more about each of these characters in updates as this campaign progresses.)
Each of these fantastic heroines will be the star of a short film, which will serve as either a proof of concept for a feature, or the pilot of a webseries. These shorts will be uploaded to the internet for public consumption as soon as they are finished, so we can spread the word and share the love.

Vicarious Films is asking for your help to see their vision come alive!  And here's where I come in!  One of the incentives for backing the project will be a new original illustration of the Veiled Avenger by yours truly. (insert gif of my shoulder shimmy here)  Or if you are so inclined, there are several other fab female illustrators on their line-up!  

I really hope you're able to support this project if not through backing, then spreading the word would be greatly appreciated!  If things go SUPER (wink) there may even be a second print run down the line! 

Full Speed Ahead!

Hey internet...  I realize I never posted the full view of my Fan*Ey pack submission, so here it is!  Just in time for Halloween. ;)  Fan*Alley even has a few extra mini prints left if you're interested.  Only $2 a piece! :)  

I will also be selling limited quantities in a larger size at Designer Con so be on the lookout for that!  

If you don't recognize them, shame on you! Just kidding... You're probably just not old enough to remember.  It is Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family, and Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice!

And speaking of Fan*Alley, the Famous Cat Gallery is still going on and will be up for viewing until Thursday, October 15!  So if you're in the area, make sure to check it out.  There are a bunch of awesome pieces still for sale as well as prints! Support local artists! DOOO IIIIITTTT!!!  

And if you're not following me on Instagram, here's the full preview of my contribution titled "You Mei Not".  That's not a misspelled word.  The younger sister's name from My Neighbor Totoro is "Mei"... and since she's a Grumpy Cat Bus, she has refused to let Mei on to ride!!!  Eh? Ehhh???  No? Okay... LOL...  

In any case, I'm quite happy with how it turned out.  Because if you know me at all, you know I can't decide on things, so I mashed them together, so I'm pleased it turned out as well as it did.  

Grumpy Cat Bus!

Designer Con preparations are well underway, and while I am feeling a bit overwhelmed, I have awesome people supporting me, and I know everything will work itself out in the end.  :) 

ch-ch-ch-changes!

Hello lovely internet people!  I know the blog has been quiet for a long time... But there are some (big?!) changes coming soon!  

July has been an amazing month full of changes for me, and I'm so excited to be able to share with you all what's in store... (hint... cough... hint...)  

If you're following me on Instagram, I'm sure I've bombarded you with my daily drawings.  But hopefully you're enjoying them even just a bit. ;)  Changes to the site are also underway.  I've consolidated a few things, added a few things, spruced up the logo, and hopefully the updated work will speak for itself.  

I'm figuring out how to streamline my posting and that should happen in the next few weeks...

There is also a big(-ish) announcement coming soon!  Fun things are percolating, and I'm as giddy as can be.  

A little bonus post... I submitted this fanart piece to the Inside Out Tumblr...  And while it didn't make the cut, I thought it was pretty darn cute.
