Thank you guys for the surprising responses to my last post - it's a comfort to know that no matter how blah I feel about "present Steph", you're all willing to keep the brighter bits in the forefront of your minds ;) I guess the kid's not going anywhere, but I have some new directions that I want to play with. Oh, cryptic!

Sooooooo, it's that time of year where I ship myself off to the Con to collect more awesome artist friends and realize that I have even more work cut out for me and my goals! My books will be on sale at BOOTH 5528 courtesy of "Girls Drawin' Girls" and I might try to see if Stuart Ng will take any more books on consignment as well.

If you happen to be at the Con, be on the lookout for the smiling orange faux hawk; if you say hi, she will give you some pins and sell you a book if you want one ;)

Oh yeah, this is the artwork for the title page of "Don't Flash the Octopus". Insert hentai jokes here.

Wish me luck and the possibility of fulfilling employment! <3 SEE YOU THERE!

So I was doodling a possible July "Steph of the Month" and one of my studio mates hovered over me and noticed that I always draw my current self as a kid. Let the over-analyzing about psychological stunting begin! So of course my first response was "NO I DON'T!" until I looked at this year's self portrait line-up and realized... oh crap, I draw myself as a 6 year old with boobs. To further my terror, he also brought to my attention that all of my pin-up girls also have the heads of children and the bodies of older women.


So, I figured I would try to draw a self po' of how I look today. Um, I think I maybe look 12 in this one. It's a start.

See, this is why I draw myself as a creepy child-lady. In reality, I am a boring and exhausted adult.

Though June was obviously a very productive month, it came at the cost of me WORRYING INCESSANTLY.

The good news is that I have a little paying work coming next week and the book monkey is off of my back as of Monday. The bad news is that I worried a huge knot into my neck. Time to get the hot tub running again and resume studio poking.

Oh yeah, say hello to my new gray hairs. Hi guys!
