MOUSE OVER

She's just mad she's not at Comic Con this week. 

PANEL 1

Annie starts to sit up. Ally shakes her hands.

ANNIE

Sure, I’m conservative. Aren’t you?

ALLY

Wh—Why would you think that?

PANEL 2

Annie and Ally sit across from each other on the bed.

ANNIE

You’re a small business owner.

ALLY

What? I’m not the “job creator” type. I’m the “starving artist” type.

PANEL 3

Closeup on Ally who is yelling.

ALLY

How many right wing hippy dippy artists do you know? Besides, you’re, like, super gay! How can you support a party that’s so very diametrically opposed to who you are?

PANEL 4

Annie scowls.

ANNIE

The lesbian stripper? Is that how you see me?

The Shameful, Shameful Blog

BACKEND IS GO!

Jul.23.14 09:21 pm

Big shout out to Erin from Hiveworks for hooking up the new backend! Things work a little differently now. The bloggy blog will still be on the page even when you click over to make a comment on the comic. And there might be some other odds and ends that a slightly different. But overall, things should work like they have been.


YP BACKEND MIGRATION

Jul.23.14 02:18 am

The Hiveworks team is hard at work migrating the YP comic CMS into something less crazy then the Comicpress madness. As a result, you’ll notice a few 404′s if you click around here as well as comments missing on some posts. Those have been sucked into the new system and will be back up once we’re able to finalize the migration. Hopefully, everything will get sorted out soon.

I’ve been meaning to update the website for a while now, but the WordPress/Comicpress combo has too many pieces that I’d need to change in order to refresh everything. There are so many bits that are connected with so many other bits that it’d be like digging for gold to make the changes I want.

The new system is more streamlined which makes things easier for me and actually loads a whole lot faster which makes things easier for you! So please excuse the mess while things are a chugging.

Patron Wallpaper for May

I've been working on this wallpaper image for my Patrons. I modeled the kitsune in Zbrush and used Mental Ray in Maya for rendering with lots of touch up in Photoshop. This was for May soI'm a little behind.

Each month, Patrons will be getting full sized wallpapers at various sizes. The resolution is high enough to print so if you want a copy for your actual wall, you can do that. So, if you're interested in that kind of thing from me, check out my Patreon page.Once you join, you get access to all the stuff inPatron-only feed so if you sign up later in the year, you can still get all the previous month's wallpapers.
