Everything Kane says is a version of something I have once said to women without realizing how fucking stupid I sounded OR that they were hitting on me. Well, except that last one. The first one was particularly heart breaking because I spent an entire night working up the courage to ask this girl to dance when she was clearly eyeing me THE ENTIRE NIGHT and when I finally get her on the dance floor, I bust out the "this is boring" line. To be fair, the song was terribly lame. But the damage was done.

I reveal one of my great weaknesses with this comic. And it's not the making an ass of myself in front of women. I can't draw real people for shit. I can draw fake people and people that I make up. But when it comes to drawing likenesses of actual people, I can draw myself and that's about it. If you make the mistake of asking me to draw you at a convention, you will receive a thing that looks nothing at all like what you see in the mirror. Now I can kind of do cartoony versions of real people. But real people who kinda of really look like the real people, I am horrible at that.

You can probably guess the reference I used for the second panel which looks absolutely nothing like her, except maybe the hair. But I won't embarrass myself by revealing my references for the other panels. Unless, of course, you guess that shit. Then I'll tell you and run away in shame.

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!

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!
