Stage Names
Posted February 27, 2019 at 01:34 am

Gonna be a busy week which you can probably tell from the lateness of this update. Hopefully, I can get around to toning, but if I don't, please know that it's mostly because I've got lots of projects in the queue that are piling up. And half of them I'm getting paid for! Which is better than usual.

What would your stage name be? I keep trying to think of something clever, but I end up with literal shit like Big Dick Dale or Massive Johnson.

LANCE

Let me introduce you to the gang.

====


LANCE

Jack Hammer. Which is actually his legal name.


JACK

It?s like I was born for this job.

====


LANCE

The ?Viking Virgin Slayer,? Steve Stevenson!


STEVE

He?s the only one who calls me that.

====


LANCE

This is Eddy? uh? do you even have a stage name?


EDDY

He tried Eddy Hung ?Like a Horse? and Eddy ?Well? Hung but I told him to stop being racist.


LANCE

Your ancestors used that last name for a reason! Dishonor! Dishonor on your cow!

====


LANCE

This is Joey Steel.


JOEY

For my steely gaze! I actually like that one!

====


LANCE

This is Lana, our director. And Elly, our DP, camera operator, editor, color grader, effects department.


ELLY

I shoot weddings, too, but like, there are so few punches. Gets boring after a while.

====


LANA

Hey, Julie, thanks for coming in to help us out.


JULIE

Oh, no problem. As long as I don?t have to see Lance naked, I?m good to go.

====


LANA

Actually, we were thinking with the compressed schedule and all that we?d like to shoot the easy stuff today and work out the fighting the rest of the week. You know, just in case one of these dumb dumbs hurts themselves.


JULIE

Easy stuff?

====


ELLY

The boning.


JULIE

Dammit, Lance!

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!

Hello YP Fam!

So clearly, I haven't been around the site much. I still answer the occasional comment that pops up, but I haven't posted anything proper in a good long while. I didn't want to sound like I'm making excuses, but I think maybe it's worth it to just let you know what's been going on.

Good stuff! But super busy!!

So me and my friend Jeremy Whitely have landed a three book deal for a property that we've been pitching for a while. And I'm in the thick of inking pages right now. I probably won't be done until end of this year, early next which is why I haven't had a chance to get back to YP in a while now.

I usually have a bajillion things going on all at once which should come as not small surprise. But I've dropped a lot of extra stuff (haven't even blogged in months) to concentrate on getting this first book done and I'm still running behind, even with 3am being a very familiar time of day for me.

I do plan on getting to YP once this first book is turned in. And hopefully, I'll be able to time manage much better for the next two volumes so I can have some breathing space.

So that's where I've been. I haven't given up on YP, I just haven't had time to do anything else but work on this first book. I'll be pimping the shit out of it when the publisher makes the official announcement to be sure. But until then, it's back to the grind for me!
