On the plus side, she doesn’t have to live at home anymore…?
Apologies for falling a bit off schedule! That was because I got sick, which I had unfortunately not penciled in. Regardless, last week The Meek won an Ignatz for Outstanding Online Comic, which is still surreal to me, and I can’t quite believe it happened. Thank you all so much again for your support.
This past week I also launched a new comic anthology called ALLOY: Electrum, showcasing stories about complicated identities. This inaugural volume focuses on a topic that I definitely touch upon in The Meek, which is being mixed-race. I am one of those people who is constantly writing about my life through an entertaining veil of lies, because transparency is scary, but in the last year or two I realized that I could be working harder to clearly advance the agenda of things I really care about (comics, representation, and paying people). This anthology has been a dream project of mine for a long time, but I didn’t feel confident in trying to get it made until early this year. I’m happy to finally launch this, and to work with a bunch of artists to tell some authentic all-ages fiction and non-fiction stories about the mixed-race experience… maybe one of those artists will be you?
Pitch submissions open on Wednesday 9/27, I hope some of you will consider submitting :] if not, and if this volume goes well, there will be future opportunities to submit as well. If you’re more of a reader-type, you can follow the Twitter for updates, announcements, and a few previews of who and what’s to come.
Anyways, I’ve got a lot of updates to make on ye olde Patreon so those will be up soon too, sometime tomorrow after both my dentist appt and getting my car fixed, lol, the fun never ends. Lets wrap this thing up FOR REALS now
