Bachelorelle Title Page

21 Dec

THE MOST HELLISH SEMESTER OF MY LIFE IS OVER AAAAAAAH

I am so happy, I am like a very uncharacteristic little ray of sunshine….

Ok so for silkscreen, we were supposed to hand in our finished book but mine is nowhere near what I consider to be “finished”…so I was like, “ehhhhh, maybe I’ll draw a makeshift cover real fast.” And luckily it was one of those beautiful days where you sketch something in ten minutes and it’s totally usable. *thumbsup* So I printed this in a hurry, and at first it was just going to be a print for the version I’m handing in to get graded, but then I realized it would make a fine title page (like, within the real cover)…yes, a fine title page indeed.

I also took the time to scan the Searat Postcards (are you sick of seeing these yet? I am) on the large format scanner at school.

I tried to scan the eight-color paper doll from the Bachelorelle book but it wouldn’t fit in the school scanner, so I gave up. I guess some things are best left as a nice, exclusive surprise for the people buying the physical book….

Also I saw the Triplets of Belleville tonight and it BLEW MY FUCKING MIND D:

Hot Babes and Gooey Messes

19 Dec

TONGUES HAVE BEEN WAGGING over Simora K.’s recent choice in beau. The Martian softcore porn starlet has been spotted all over town knee-deep in a blue blob monster known as “Glurpb.” Glurpb, with whom she recently filmed a short softcore scene, is a thousand-eyed Blopud from the neighboring moon of Phobos. Sources close to Simora have confirmed that her relationship with Glurpb started out on-camera, but rapidly blossomed into something more.

“I don’t see what the big deal is,” an agitated Simora told MARZāœ©STARZ reporters on Tuesday, as they waylaid her between errands, Glurpb in tow. “So what if we’re not a conventional couple. We both have needs, and we fulfill those needs for each other. If you don’t like it then you can just f— off.” [While present, Glurpb was unavailable for comment, as the Blopud species is unable to articulate sounds beyond gurgling and plopping.]

Interested voyeurs will be able to see Simora and Glurpb’s now infamous scene together next month, as part of the forthcoming adult-entertainment release, “Buxom Babes and Gooey Messes.”

 

Order in Which This Piece Came into Being:

  1. “What do I feel like drawing today? Well, let’s do the old standby: A hot, topless chick with an unrealistically perky rack.”
  2. “This needs something. She needs to be enmeshed in a giant, sticky, gooey blue blob monster with a lot of eyeballs staring up her bloomers.”
  3. “Well, shit, people are going to think I’m really fucked up for drawing blob-monster porn. Guess I better make up a story to explain myself.”

Fun fact: Blopud = Blob + Puddle.

 

A Blurry Preview of Searat Chipboard Postcards

17 Dec

Here is an early preview of the Searat postcards (silkscreen on chipboard) that will be part of my sexy book. I have a crappy copy that I have been carrying around and here it is jammed into my small scanner, which it does not really fit in. Sorry. A better copy will be posted…maybe, someday. They will also be for sale…probably, someday sooner.

The back looks like this…I did it a bit on the fly, I wish I had planned better. :[ That strange stain…I think it’s emulsion? I wasn’t eating chips over my work, I promise. Remember: Planning is everything.

*This post brought to you because I am procrastinating on a five-page paper for European Animation class.

Old Shitty Thesis Sees the Light of the Internet

15 Dec

I recently had to apply for a scholarship and send samples of recent sequential work so I dredged up the ol’ THESIS from last year.

I couldn’t be arsed to find the originals, and in fact even if I could they’re too big to fit in my scanner, so I scanned copies of the minicomic. Heh. Way to go the extra mile, Kiki.

Looking at this again I realize just how very disconnected I felt from this piece. And still do. I had no interest in these characters, this plot…I mean god, look at it, I was more interested in drawing baroque-style furniture than making my characters “act” convincingly. Which isn’t to say that I didn’t get some kick out of drawing it, but in large part I was completely emotionally UN-invested in this piece and that’s probably why it failed so miserably.

However, it is some insanely detailed draftsmanship, so something good came out of it.
