Ok so I’m even more pissed at Kishi than usual bc I Cannot Deal with yodo’s design at this point. I’m tired of drawing her w/ her hoodie zipped up bc Kishi added in his notes on the design that he wanted to make her look ‘sexy’ w/ the unnecessary hole in her bodysuit and when he drew her wearing a tube top. Because you know, she’s TWELVE. And apparently her hood is to keep out dust and heat even though its zipped right up…0% of the time. That’s really gonna help, right Kishi?
I’ve decided to redesign her in clothing that NOT ONLY will keep the dust and heat out, but is also suitable for a 12 y/o desert-welling ninja. You’re welcome.
One might be forgiven for raised eyebrows
at the idea of a collaboration between The Bug, with a distinctly gritty,
metropolitan flavor, and Earth, whose output over recent years has an open,
windblown desert feel. But when you come down to it, both artists inhabit a
sort of desolate, vaguely alienated landscape, albeit expressed from different
perspectives. Kevin Martin has for years plumbed the extremes possible when
combining heavy beats with a seemingly-opposed minimalism, as Techno Animal,
God, Ice and The Bug among others. Similarly, Earth’s Dylan Carlson has followed
a path to see how slow and deep metal can get (the answer: very).
