Mady G’s illustrations are seriously a blast! Beautifully inked with smooth, exaggerated expressions, their art takes me back to 90′s cartoons like Ren & Stimpy or Rocko’s Modern Life. But with a nice queer twist! 

Drawn in the same cartoony style, their autobio comics literally feels like reading a page from a diary. I feel like I’m invading their personal space as they discuss intimate thoughts on anxiety, depression and more importantly, their identity as a nonbinary trans-person. And unlike most diary comics explaining events in an artist’s life, reading Mady’s comics feels like having a close friend confide in you. 

Because of Mady, I’m on a quest to read more nonbinary identity comics (I’m open to recommendations!) <3

Mady got a hold of my sketchbook today and turned a “meeeeeh” sketch that I was never going to do anything with into something the both of us can be proud of! 

So yeah, more Hank/Dermott (or as we like to call it “Dank”) from the both of us. This one’s kinda angsty…inspired by Mady’s gorgeous piece here. Poor babies… <:C

Will color this one later ;)

New commission special! Trying something different.

The gifs will be 500x500px, 300dpi, use 4-8 frames total, and loop seamlessly. All gifs include wiggle lines + one extra animated element. Any more animation will cost extra based on complexity. 

If you want one of these, just send me a message with your paypal info (for invoicing purposes) and a description of what you want.

You can also send an email to madyg@madyg.com

THERE ARE ONLY 10 SLOTS OPEN AT THE MOMENT. 

I might add more if I’m feeling jazzed, tho.

 Thanks folks!!

I’ve been wanting to do one of these for ages and now, having finally done it, all I can think is: “shit, I know I left stuff off, I know I forgot stuff”. Oh well, though.

My pal Mady G (great cartoonist who interned for me way back in 2011) is in this documentary about Drag Kinging. Also a dude called ERIC VON FABULOUS is in this documentary, too. I really dig everything Mady does. Their tumblr is here!
