Comics Slumber Party...Now Over :c [Mar. 9th, 2009|04:50 pm]

Wanna see the big porny drawing we made?
TOO BAD! It's not colored yet! But here's a preview of it in an early state of inking.
Linney! Get off of that, you prude!


As you might have heard (see above), Erika's comic, Dar, is being put together into a book, once the printing nonsense gets worked out. It's a really funny comic, as evidenced by my quote on the back cover.
Look for it this April!


So Erika and her hubby Matt have now vanished back to The West, leaving our apartment empty once again. While they were here, Erika and I essentially did not stop making things.
(Except when we went OUT ON THE TOWN.)
In our spare time, we've been working on a long-distance, collaborative conversation comic for about six months. So while she was here, we worked on the cover.
(The book should be available by Stumptown, in April.)
Check it:

Like the comic inside, the cover was basically drawn in halves, Erika did her half on the left, and I did the right section. There are probably a few tweaks left to do, but it's coming along!
I'm excited about this project, so I wanna spread the word!


We also did a couple hours of non-drawn, real-life conversation, on her weekly internet show.
You can watch the recorded chat (complete with me looking wintertime-chubby in my new specs, and saying slightly boozy things) here: The Erika Moen Show, on UStream.


Not to sound completely avaricious, but I did fix my webpage, finally, with actual working links on my Buy Stuff Page.
I can't believe how long I'd let it remain broken! Yikes.
Anyway, you actually CAN buy my stuff, if you felt like being totally great.
Thaaank yeeew!

You know, there are some real prudish dumbasses in this country, but I wouldn't expect someone who owns a book publishing company to be that way. That severely blows. On a more positive note: That cover is looking DAMN FINE. Also, I am looking forward to the porny drawing ;D

Also; who can afford to be so uppity about what you print during a recession? You should be thanking the stars that people want printing full stop!

That was close.

Good thing you didn't include a full scan of the poster in this post. I don't think they allow porn on the internet.

*prepares an armada to invade the US and kick some puritanical ass*
Oh it still is? *radios the armada to stay in port, but mobilises the air force just in case*

All that aside: YAY! Two of my favourite comic book artists collaborating! GOOD NEWS!

You're both so adorable I can't wait for your joint comic! :)
I absolutely love your comics Lucy they're so warm, fun and charming! And very relatable! After discovering your LJ I ran out to the local Chapters to buy "Milk" which was lovely, and again very relatable (I spent a very short time in Paris). Anyhoo, just wanted to express my admiration, can't wait to see what you do next! :D

Panel 7 is the best distillation of the Pilgrims I have ever seen in my whole life.

Pretty much everyone I give a damn about would have been burned for something, but then so would I.

The prudery of American society never ceases to amaze me.

My wife was flabbergasted, the other week, when she saw an episode of Oprah*, discussing "marital problems": Women who'd never orgasmed, who would never tell their husbands what turned them on, because that was "slutty".

All she could think of was the mother in Pleasantville.

*At a clients' house, because she doesn't watch it, okay!

At least Oprah had on the Woman who had a sex change who is now a Man but kept his vagina so he could get preggers! Haha, Oprah surprises me sometimes! Maybe she IS doing some good!

It's funny because that is what the puritans wanted when they came over here! They wanted the right to practice their crazy strict religion and not be persecuted for it. They were all "you can't just got to confession and be forgiven for jerking off! You have to HATE YOURSELF FOREVER"
Good thing we didn't let those suckers stay in charge.
I want to see that drawing SO HARD.
Also I feel the same way when I think of the odds of Chester getting published by anyone. Even though it's no dirtier than any romance novel, go figure!

I love the book cover (especially since all the underthings appear on Erika's side of the city). I can't wait to see what your dual-drawing bonanza turned out like.

I think you guys should draw lots more scandalous things to stick it to the man!

I would imagine that they include pictures of 'sticking it to the man' on their poster. And if they don't I shall feel most aggrieved.

And the poster. Of course.

*Dreamy sigh*

Seeing you two work together is practically orgasmic (which I guess is appropriate considering all the porn). That cover is wonderful and adorable and lovely. Will you only be selling it at Stumptown? Or is that just when you will have it? Hopefully I can afford it by then.

I was really shocked with Erika was twittering about her printer refusing to print her book. Shocked and angry. I really hope she gets it all worked out.

I watched the show already and thought you were both adorable as well as entertaining, and it was nice to listen to you while working on my own stuff. :)
