[ lets talk mini-comics ]
vignette #45: another summer.
vignette #44: west coast dreams.
every six months i get the urge to move across the country, and now i have someone who wants to come with. san francisco, december 2014?
(also, first internet doodle in two months. hello!)
and one more print over on etsy! remember this one from the pre-rudderless days? still holds true. $15 and it’s yours, come and get it!
and another print is up in the shop! as i said over on etsy:
“I’ve lived in far too many different apartments in New York, trying out neighborhoods in Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn, but Greenpoint has become my absolute favorite place of all. Like a lovely mix of Astoria and Williamsburg, here you can find authentic Polish food alongside fancy vegan nachos. This is my home, and hopefully it is yours too.”
Kim Gee donated her mini-comic Rudderless, which documents her “post-grad summer and the thought process that went along with it.”
Tell us about yourself: “I’m a 20-something graphic designer by day, cartoonist by night. I self-publish autobiographical comics about dating, self reflection, and coming of age in New York City. I’m also working on a comic book guide to HTML with No Starch Press that should be out later this year (after being a successful Kickstarter project like Ladypoints!)”
Tell us about your work: “My personal work is about feeling uncertain, whether that be about relationships, or my career, or who I want to become. I think it’s important for young girls to see that the “I don’t know what I’m doing with my life” phase doesn’t necessarily end once you graduate high school, but that’s okay. It’s important to flail a bit to figure out who you really are and what you really want.”
Check out more of Kim’s comics, here.
Thanks, Kim, for your support! Check out our Kickstarter page here and get your very own bundle of work made by awesome ladies.
ladypoints is the cool girls club of the internet and i somehow got a membership.
(but really, go check out their kickstarter!)
vignette #43: crowdsource my vacation.
portland, sf, la: tell me all your secrets!
(also, i’ve abandoned my comics schedule and i’m just going to post when i feel like it. cool?)
one of my loose goals for 2013 was to get some work in my etsy shop besides books and zines, and it’s finally happening! “modern love” is now available as a 12”x18” print, and more prints will be coming soon! any particular comic you’d like to request? send me an ask and i’ll do my best to make it happen.
tonight mike and i went on a double date with our favorite lesbian couple (hi katie and vicky!) and we ate thai food and talked about our pets and laughed a lot. at one point i realized it was past 9pm on a thursday and i hadn’t put a new comic up, but it felt more important to eat pineapple fried rice and talk to my friends about who snores the most.
i’ve been turning down a lot of freelance work lately to stay on top of everything else. but there’s a part of me that wonders if i turn down work will i ever get any again, or if i stop posting comics will people forget i exist? i’ve been in the “promote yourself, build your career!” mentality for so long that i’m still adjusting to having a full-time job and a book deal. i’m thinking it’s time to cool down with the side projects for a bit. it’s okay to take a break.
basically: no comic today. but i’m still here.
vignette #42: ladylike.
it’s okay guys, i live with my boyfriend. i can be as gross on the internet as i want.
vignette #41: a little bit weird.
things are never going to be perfect, but i’m grateful they come this close.
