Just listed a bunch of new feeps in the Etsy store, including this rotund beet bat painting. Check ‘em out, wontcha.
Is it Halloween yet?

A little something new from the Feep side of my creative endeavors.

QU33R won the Ignatz award for Outstanding Anthology or Collection on Saturday night. I never would have believed it would happen, and I’m still a little stunned. Anyway, thanks to all of the mighty contributors who made the book what it is and our publisher, Zan Christensen of Northwest Press for you know, putting it out there. If you don’t have the book, you can order it directly from the NWP here in either print or digital form. Weeee! It was a really good weekend. I’m grateful.

The book I edited, QU33R (2014, Northwest Press) has been nominated for an Ignatz Award, in the Outstanding Anthology or Collection category, at SPX this weekend!

I’m running a smattering of excerpts from the book this week to celebrate. QU33R features a lot of Gender-y themed comics, from cis and non-cis gendered folks alike. Depicted here are excerpts from stories by Dylan Edwards, Diane DiMassa, Andy Hartzell, and L. Nichols. And yes, the cover art by Michael Fahy addresses identity brilliantly as well.

QU33R will be on sale at SPX both days from the great ED “Wuvable Oaf” LUCE at table K7!

Politically InQueerect: Old Ghosts page 31 is up! Another foray into Archer’s past, and a lesson in ghost-wrangling from gran.

Art notes: the poster in the background apes the style 1940s film posters, though a limited-run theatrical play probably wouldn’t have had anything quite so elaborate. Also, the British don’t really celebrate Halloween, so the late October dates for a horror-themed production are mostly arbitrary. If you can manage to get over these egregious historical inaccuracies, there’s a lot of Gran’s story to be gleaned from this page.

This is the eponymous valley. The humans of the valley mostly live on that white structure, the whole of which is called Pocalo, with each level being a different province.
Down in the forests you’ll find another hominid species, the Tolas (or, more specifically, Mountain Forest Tolas, for there are other types of Tola in the world). Valley of the Silk Sky is the Tolai name for the region.
Inside the mountains themselves live the Daraz, who are essentially what you’d get if a subterranean primate species had evolved in Australia (i.e., poisonous monotremes who are covered in spikes).

FYI, I’m not going to reblog every single post I make to the VoSS tumblr, so be sure to follow over there if’n you want to nerd out all the way.

Concept art for Halvanylila’s character design for the VoSS story in Beyond. This was approximately the 9 millionth iteration, and the one that more or less stuck. (As ever, actually drawing the character in panel after panel yielded a few design drifts here and there.)

Okay, so! I’ve officially started a Tumblr for my brang new comic, Valley of the Silk Sky. There are still some design tweaks that need to happen, but it’s basically operational. Please follow it if you are so inclined.
My goal is to start posting comic pages for the first story arc in January 2015. Until then, I’ll be posting concept art and ecology/culture notes for the nerds (me, actually; mostly just for me).
There’s going to be a 16-page VoSS story in Beyond, which will be out in 2015. There’s also a 1-page backup story in Jon Macy’s Fearful Hunter collection, which is out RIGHT NOW.
So yes. Stay tuned for some very, very queer sci-fi.

Politically InQueerect: Old Ghosts page 30 is up! I wonder if the old curio cabinet contains any objects of significance. Hmmmm.

Trivia for this page: Todd’s shirt is based on an Oxford University rugby jersey I used to have. I thought it would be funny to color Archer’s shirt Cambridge Blue, you know, as one of those visual jokes that maybe three people will get.
Well, it turns out Oxford cares a LOT more about their branding than Cambridge does. Here, for example, is the best description I could find of what shade Cambridge Blue is supposed to be. Hell, they didn’t even bother to make it actually be blue.
Meanwhile, Oxford has an extensive branding toolkit available online to make sure you get the exact right Pantone shades for each of their pre-approved colors.
Spoiler alert: I did NOT Pantone match Todd’s jersey. Sorry, Oxford.

Reblogging “for the morning crew,” as they say.
