Tidying Up

Just pulling some stuff from over the summer out of my sketchbook. I don't know about you guys, but I'm into werebears. I hear it's a science-fiction / fantasy sub-genre of gay erotic literature, but that's not the kind of werebear I'm talking about (although if I'm given to understand correctly, these stories are in fact protagonized by actual werebears). (yes, actual werebears). (if you do want to read about rugged mountain man love then check out Kolbeinn Karlsson's The Troll King; it was really good, and there's more to it than just that, like the part where the garden gnome man has a crazy acid trip / near-death experience).

I'm more talking about werebears like Tolkien's Beornings, but then again, Tolkien's hyper-androcentric world is sort of homoerotic, right? Don't jump down my throat or anything, I'm just saying. He does cast a long shadow, as I heard someone say on a forum. Why Lawful-Good werebears in Dungeons & Dragons?

Tolkien – all there is the say.

They can't all be down with the clothes-tearing, right? They can't all do the a-la Terminator "wups I'm all naked cause I came out a time-warp," thing. Especially if they're Lawful-Good. Or if their phone's in their pocket.

Come on, that's an elephant. Someone was like, "what's that supposed to be?" and I was like, "an elephant, yo."

The Hulk clearly exists in a world where you don't have your cell-phone in your pocket.

Life is Lies: Maybe We Do

My sense of what these aliens can and can't do changes a little bit every time I draw them. Also, this post snuck up on me, but I've got some good non-Life is Lies material coming here to Swimmy the Dish soon. Although I also have some really good Life is Lies material coming up, too; I scanned five galleys today, they'll be put into the queue at Tiny Mix Tapes before the end of the weeeeeee~k.

Life is Lies: Bug Man

Man, I've got to get on some other projects. I've been working on business cards, but yeah. So, progress.
