I can’t believe I went to NYCC and completely forgot to mention the update on the Queer Erotic Comics Anthology! The babes putting it together are hard at work and it looks like the release is coming in spring 2013. If you want to keep an eye on the progress and see some sneak previews of my comic Gentleman’s Gentleman and the other fabulous artists’ submissions, please check out and follow Quintuple Ruffle.
I can’t fucking wait for this thing.

Since I only have four more illustrations to go for the novel project, I rewarded myself by doing more work! I finally sorted out the appearance of my two characters for Gentleman’s Gentleman, the erotic comic I am going to contribute to the Queer Erotic Anthology project. Is the title giving away too much? Shhh. And ignore my stupid messy notes.
