My submission for THE MONSTER PROJECT organized by the Comic Alliance and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
The original will be donated to raise money for CBLDF.

It's nice to be used for the force of good :)

Busy Working...meanwhile Commissioned Lelouch Sketch

Working on some stuff...but here's a filler post---
A friend commissioned me to do a sketch of her favorite character Lelouch
from one of her favorite shows Code Geass.

This was an interesting challenge for me because---
A. I don't draw pretty things, so I wasn't sure how to approach this (especially when I saw the reference pictures)
B.Lately I've been only drawing ugly pictures of myself either eating or barfing...which is a hard mode to get out of.
C. I'm getting paid either in Korean beef or future dinner

I think it came out all right. Took 2 days, which I blame netflix for. Once you get an account, your eyes are no longer yours.

SPX was tiring BUT FUN! It was nice seeing people I know again (especially after moving home) and thanks to people that bought my work!

My side of the table. Look things are propped and organized.....sort of.

The rest of "The Society of the Okay" Annie Wu and Emma Rochon.
Dressed up in V-necks for the gentlemen.

Hard at work. Oh by the way that's the look Annie gives when she catches you secretly taking photos of her. She gives me that look all the time.

Hard at work...on that Mcgriddle!!!

Other SPX 2010 Weekend Highlights:

1. Couples walking by my Castration comic poster. The lady always laughs pointing out the comic to her boyfriend. He shakes his head and smiles, but it's a stiff smile that says, "No. we are not doing that." as he coaxes her away from the table.

2. I temporarily suffer from Facial Blindess at these things. I find that I'm not registering facial details for future interactions when I talk to people because I'm busing trying to pass inherent behaviors, like "awkward" into "possibly-charmingly-eccentric". Either way I feel guilty if I do blow someone off by accident, and then I end up chasing them down to apologize...which might actually be more embarrassing...

3. Selling work. Promoting. Buying stuff/ supporting my favorite/new artists (and staying on a budget whoo!)

4. Interacting with people and artists. For me, it's stressful on both ends (being the artist and reg. Joe), but it's important and good exercise for those social skills I picked up in college.
In relation, Annie and I went up to R. Sikoryak. We showed him Magenta Placenta. I don't remember what I said...but I'm pretty sure it wasn't exceptionally stupid. So success!!!!

5. Signed up to participate in the D.C Counter Culture Festival this October 24th and considering a table at the MOCCA Festival this April 2011.

6. Dinner at Joyce's afterwards.

Saturday, September 4, 2010


Instead of interacting with people at this year's Baltimore Comicon, I decided to hide under our (The Society of the Okay/me, Emma Rochon and Annie Wu) table and catch up on my periodicals.
After reading Cynthia Mitchell's "The After Life of After Birth Notes on Eating Human Placenta"
from my issue of Meatpaper, I looked up and asked Annie if she would eat placenta.
Undistracted from her drawings she replied, "Would you eat a placenta if it were magenta?"

And then I left to get a hamburger from Five Guys.....

...with the idea unconsciously brooding in my mind, waiting to surface the day I decide to procrastinate editing resume and cover letters.
