upwardlooking asked you:
Hey, just wondering - was Marvin from Lesbian Pirates inspired by Marvin the Paranoid Android from the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy? :) Love your work, by the way - I’ve been home sick for the past few days, laying in bed and reading all of your stuff ;D You rock!
He was not, but he reminded so many readers of the Hitchhiker character that when it came time to name my little gray-skinned buddy, I decided to do a retroactive homage.
quiltingqueer asked you:It occurred to me the other day that Yu+Me Dream would make for a really amazing television series. Thoughts?
I think maybe a movie, or more likely, a mini series. Part one of the comic would have to be condensed to one episode, with the twist happening at the end of that episode, and then maybe half a dozen episodes in the Dream World. I really like self-contained mini series and want there to be more of them.
sergle asked you:
I think that you should make posters, because I want your art on my wall. ;u; (Assuming you haven’t already done that and I just can’t find them.) Are you planning to do that at any point?
I did make some posters once upon a time. Once the Hiveworks store gets more underway, we’re gonna have prints for sure.
Part of an ask that got garbled in the sending process but I wanted to respond to this chunk:
I noticed something. You don’t draw stick thin women. You draw real women who arent just a statement. They are actual important characters.
Stick thin women are still real women. They can very much be important characters. While there may be a large amount of them in pop culture at the expense of larger women, and the role of larger women is often small and unimportant to stories other people are telling, the real world doesn’t operate on a thicker=realer equation. I’ve been one of those stick thin women, due to involuntary circumstances. I got shit for it daily. While I’m a lot thicker now, I still don’t like it when people degrade thin women as a way to elevate thick women. It’s not any one person’s fault, and I’m not mad, but I’m not gonna let that sort of thing continue unchecked.

ithinkimallergictoghosts asked you:Are there any rules to drawing pin ups? I want to try my hand at it and I don’t want to get it wrong? do you have resources and whatnot?
I don’t think there’s one strict set of rules or a way to get it wrong. There are a lot of different schools of thought on pinups. My own personal thoughts are that pinups are best when there’s some kind of personality in the character, some kind of story, some kind of context. Try to get a pose with some interesting negative space. Don’t just do generic sexyface and call it a day.
fraggingfox asked you:
hello! i was wondering, do you play minecraft?
I go on spurts of it. I’ll play obsessively for a week and then nothing for two months. I usually only play these days if my roommate wants to play a LAN game because otherwise I get kinda bored and lonely.
