Dear Young Person:
You are eight years old. Your aunt has given you a biscuit tin full of antique costume jewelry: there are Venetian glass beads and gold filigree things and tiny little snuff boxes set with enamel flowers. Even the tin itself is beautiful, covered…
Anonymous asked: On the front cover flap for King City, Anna's jacket has B.D.W.B.F. written on the sleeve (write above the Hchom goblin). What the hell does it stand for? On the back of her jacket is part of it, I think: 'dudez with ba--'. But what about the rest man, what about the rest? 'Bad dudez with bad faces', 'barbaric dudez with bad freckles'?
It stands for Bad Dudes With Bad Feets.
It’s a joke clothing brand that Marian came up with when she gives me clothes. Here’s a label she sewed into my pajama pants.
Frontrunners for Most Offensively Adorable Couple In Comics.
kingsofsleep asked: Do you have a day job?
No, I’ve managed to scrape by on comics and illustration work for about 8(?) years now.
ISS, Which is as big as a football field and coast around $60B so far, houses six astronauts at the moment. The space station, whose weight is 350 tons, might as well be in operation until the 2020’s. After the retirement of American space shuttles it will basically depends on Russian spaceships.

I’m trying to avoid cleaning my room and my computer so why don’t we do some asks while we’re all safe inside on this sunday night.

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already been 5 years 😭 http://www.twitpic.com/e2rii #timehop
So, I posted this the other day and I am worried that… everyone didn’t get the joke! I tried really hard to make it so obvious that it wasn’t real without putting a disclaimer over it (one of SEVERAL 4-page spreads?!), but it still managed to troll some people. I guess I mean I can’t blame you! The first bit of Nowhere Men artwork in almost a whole year and who cares if it looks like Jim Lee drew it in 1994? So I feel bad somewhat for tricking the book’s eager supporters, I really didn’t want to do that! But yeah. Sorry! The drawing was meant to be a wink-wink jokey joke as a thank you for everyone who was so supportive of me after I explained the delays on the book.
Please rest assured that WHEN Nowhere Men continues it will not be a parody of early Image comic books. Kurt does not suddenly look like Badrock and his eyes don’t glow, they’re reflective like a cat’s. And even though a character is telepathic you will never see glowing flares of energy spewing from their head (even though there have been neck lasers but neck lasers tho), cause think about it, if there were some kind of energy that the mind could emit that was strong enough to react with air and cause it to appear on the visual spectrum it would at the very least singe the eyebrows.
I promise that I will post some real non-joke NWM art soon, and even if it isn’t a WIP of any real pages, they will be some character studies done as warmups or the like. Please! If you suspect that anyone you know began to think that Susan would now be appearing with giant glossy black tits, please direct them to this message. I thank you and humbly apologize for the confusion my terrible joke caused.
There is never enough. Never enough time, never enough money, never enough success, never enough praise, never enough sales. Never enough. That’s part of the life I’ve chosen. We struggle to find that thing that makes us feel satisfied, that gives us joy, but, the truth is that the joy is…
