To-do list for September

  • Learn a 90 minute play, including at least 5 songs (still not sure exactly how many of these 15 songs involve me, but at least 5)
  • Obtain costumes for said play
  • Perform this play 6 times in September
  • Figure out new choreo for both my Michigan Burlesque Fest acts because the music I used before isn’t available so new songs mean new dances
  • Perform this in September, and also organize all the merch I’m taking to the festival
  • Come up with new burlesque act from scratch and make the costume and props
  • Draw final 12 pages of Eat Me
  • Draw at least 5 pages of Meaty Yogurt
  • Draw 8 pages for Monster Anthology, color 22 pages for MA.
  • Finish packing all these books so I can ship them.

This might be the most intense month of my life. But I can totally do this! Here I go!

If you like reading Meaty Yogurt in full-chapter chunks, or just want to catch up, the latest chapter is up on facebook now. It’s a great, easy way to read it because the pages load quickly and you can move between pages with the arrow keys. I scripted this chapter for each page to make sense on its own, but more sense when read all together.

Something I've always wondered: did Sadako "seduce" Lia because she reminded her of that girl from her childhood that she kissed? Or was it because she saw how lonely she was?

Lia reminded Sadako of herself. She connected with her on that level of being a lonely outcast at school (which is also what drew Fiona and Lia together), and Sadako also recognized that evil streak in Lia, which came out as Mara, another thing they had in common. It was really just good old fashioned compatibility with those two.

I’ve had this shirt idea in my head for a while, and with the Michigan Burlesque Festival coming up, I thought now would be a good time to finally make it. If you want one, preorder it now! Order it by Thursday the 28th and it’ll be cheaper, because you’ll be doing me a favor by helping me estimate how many I need of each size. They’ll ship in September.

Final day for the sale price!

Two YU+ME questions: What is the average lifespan of a denizen of Nod? Such as people like Lucy or Don. I think those two are the ones I'm most confused about. Also, at the end with Fi, could what happened to her at the portal been successfully done by anyone or was Don the only person who could do it? Thanks! :D

Different types of people age at different rates, but how old they look is often effected by their will, much like everything else. Take this page:

Sadako starts out feeling very old and depressed, but she gets younger as she perks up at the end. As Queen of Nod, she especially is able to affect how she looks depending on her mood, as she has the power to affect everything.

Lucy looks old at the very end, but she can change her head, so that was a choice she made. I imagined that her kind of people, the headless ones, had a sort of culture where it got to be kind of gauche to continue wearing the same kind of young head forever, or they’ll have phases where they look old for a while before returning to a younger look later. Or maybe old face is sometimes fashionable.

Nod also has thousands of sentient humanoid species, and they all have various quirks about them. Don was the closest thing to a Nodian human that the story had, but he still wasn’t human. So some of these species will live a few days, some will live millennia.

Don pushed her through the portal because he was the one Fiona most trusted, but also, Nod itself has a bit of sentience, and it has ways of influencing events so that the one it wants to rule it ends up in that position. I’d actually love to explore more of that someday.

Once I have all these books shipped out, I can start doing more comics again. So many ideas in my head! Thanks for your patience during this relative radio silence, y’all!

My shirt printer was out of stock on some sizes in seafoam green/light aqua, so now all the women’s tees and tanks are in light blue, while unisex shirts are still in light aqua. And you’ve got a bit over a day to get the discounted price!
