Erika Moen, Amy Falcone, Dylan Meconis, Steve Lieber, and I talked about the ins and outs of freelancing at Emerald City Comicon this past weekend. Here’s a recording for those of you who couldn’t make it!
I kept joking about how much I wanted to draw the Strip Search crew as anime high schoolers and I finally couldn’t resist doing it any more! Started with Amy because I’ve had a ton of fun getting to know her and talking about animes <3<3
Clique Refresh: A love letter to internet friends & what it means to feel most at home online.
Meet Ellen “Ellie” Cleary, the heroine of my new comic project, Clique Refresh. She is a fiercely independent 20-something hell bent on making her dreams come true. The only problem is, she may have bitten off a bit more than she can chew.
I’ll be introducing the rest of the cast and teasing bits about the story for the next 14 days until the Kickstarter launch.
Gratz to Amy Falcone for her new comic project, Clique Refresh, hitting its Kickstarter funding goal on its first day. Here’s a celebratory drawing of the protagonist Ellie’s Ether Ruin avatar swimmin’ in Kickstarter loot.
I’m a huge fan of Kickstarter, of Strip Search, and of seeing comic projects getting love, so this streak of Strip Search alums’ (sometimes wildly) successful Kickstarter campaigns is music to my ears (see: Lexxy’s, Abby’s, Maki’s). I do feel a little bad, though, for [SPOILER] the show’s champion, Katie, who won a significantly smaller purse than these Kickstarters are pulling in (I know a huge slice of the Kickstarter pie goes to backer rewards and Kickstarter itself, but we’re talking $126k on Kickstarter vs $15k from Strip Search). Hopefully Katie will find a way for fans to throw money at her too. She deserves it.
