Don't Shit Where You Eat
Posted October 30, 2018 at 12:06 am

It's pretty cynical and fatalistic to not start something just because it might fail. I mean, the entire ethos of starting your own business is to just fuckin' do it. Why shouldn't this extend to relationships?

BODIE?s EYES

J?accuse!

BODIE

Kane only breaks out the ?Goji and Chill? tactic for special occasions.


Did you two become a thing? WITHOUT TELLING ME?

====


ALLY and KANE

Whu?No.

====


BODIE

Mmm hmmmm.

====


ALLY

Breaking up with Annie, I dunno. It brought a lot of weird shit up that I hadn?t thought about before. I just needed some dumb, brain off time, you know.

====


ALLY

My Destiny clan is really Annie?s Destiny clan so shooting the mans wasn?t a great idea. You two are the only other people I hang out with.

====


ALLY

Misery loves company and all that so I called Kane.


KANE

And nothing is better at making your brain dumb than off-brand pseudo kaiju.

====


BODIE

Good. Then we don?t have to dissolve our company.


KANE

What?

====


BODIE

Don?t shit where you eat.


ALLY

What?

====


BODIE

Look, if you guys wanted to date while we were still at Pendaticorp, that would have been fine. That place was so damn big, if you broke up you could avoid each other until you both retired.

====


BODIE

But there?s only three of us. And not saying that you guys would break up. I mean, I could kinda see you guys together or whatever. But if you ever broke up, I don?t think our trio could handle the drama. I?d like to think we?re all adults, but realistically, it?d be rough.

New video! This took so damn long to put together. I have no idea how those graphic recorders do this live. Here's an overview of the business of comics in 2020, visual notetaking style!

You can get a preview of the first chapter on the Papercutz website here. This is a little rundown of how I painted to cover.

I'm so excited!!!! School for Extraterrestrial Girls Volume 1: Girl on Fire is finally finished and ready for preorder!!! And if you click on that link, you can download and read the first chapter for free! If there's a limit to exclamation points, I'ma break that shit in this post!!!

Working with Jeremy on this book has been a true delight. There have been moments when I wanted to shout at Tara and moments when I just wanted to hug her as I was drawing pages. I've also learned a whole lot about what it takes to complete a long form project like this. Papercutz has been super supportive throughout the process and we couldn't have asked for a better team. I can't wait for everyone to get their hands on this book!!! I'll be sure to throw copies at everyone I see.

So now you can see what's taken me away from YP for so goddamn long. I'm taking a short break to finish up some projects that piled up during production, but I do intend to get back to some YP goodness. I probably won't be able to sustain a regular schedule since Book 2 is on the near horizon, but I plan on updating as I can.

If you would like to see a full preview of Book 1, I've posted the full colored book over at my Patreon in all its glory! I also post a weekly podcast over there with news and commentary on the art scene so if you're looking for things to occupy your brain for a few minutes, check it out!

Alright, that's it for now! I'll yell about all sorts of updates and such as they happen!
