In the next few days I’m going to post a select few illustrations I did for G.D. Falksen’s first book in The Ouroboros Cycle last year. If you’d like to see them all, as well as the illustrations of my husband, Lawrence Gullo, do pick up your own copy!
This is the illustration for Chapter 1.
Starting to work on a really big collaborative project with Cheeky Lane and Lawrence. Follow Paper Menagerie Production on Instagram for more. The hint as to the nature of this project is in the top right corner of the first picture.
Still sick, still in bed - hence getting some work done. More progress details of Cheeky’s doll. Fun fact: Lawrence did the silhouettes on the bra and panties, just like on the real life costume.
In more exciting book-related news, G.D. Falksen’s first novel in The Ouroboros Cycle has just hit the stores! Staying locked away in an ivory tower with Lawrence this summer, working hard on 30 illustrations for each chapter of this kickass book has paid off with this lovely volume. Go get your copy!
The Ouroboros Cycle Book One: A Monster’s Coming-Of-Age Story
Release date is January 21, 2013
A preview of 1 of the 30 illustrations in the book by the talented Fyodor A. Pavlov and Lawrence Gullo.
More to come…
Hey babes, mark your calendars if you want to see and hear yours truly and my partner-in-crime carry on about queers, comics, and queers in comics. There will be refreshments, stimulating conversation and hot nerds aplenty. Click the image link for more info.
While going through stationery to mail out some orders, I found our wedding invitations. Laurie and I designed them together and printed them ourselves, and I still think they were so lovely.
The newest issue of Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine with a gorgeous cover illustrated by my wonderful husband is out, go get your copy! I illustrated the cover of the previous issue, and his and my copies look so pretty next to each other…
The silhouette cut-out Sherlock was something he made for me for Christmas last year. The best.
Just a reminder that Lawrence and I will be at NYCC this weekend! On Saturday we will vend from 1-4pm at the Geeks Out booth and roam around before and after. Above is a small sampling of what I’ll br bringing. We will also have copies of Baritarian Histories and Lawrence’s Surgery Comic. We will not be vending on Sunday, but I will be roaming the halls with my Gal Friday. So please stop by, say hi, buy some art and let us love you!
My husband’s tower of detachable collars atop his Art Deco chifferobe. Strangely arousing.
I haven’t had much time to draw the last couple of days, and this is why. For years now Lawrence has fantasized about having a masters and servants dinner party, and so we decided to pull out all the stops for his birthday this weekend. I was so busy pretending to be a butler that I actually butled. The servants all ate in the kitchens and stood whenever any of the family entered, Granny had a bell to ring for us with, we shuffled them in between different rooms for different parts of the meal, and stood in attendance by the doors and served them tea. We even had a token American heiress who came into gold suddenly and was now traveling England in search of a marriageable title - she’s the one with the revolutionary haircut. Social order did breakdown after about 10 in the evening. Tails were discarded, ties were loosened and servants danced with masters.
Exhausting. But definitely one of our crowning achievements as far as soirées go.
At the behest of m’colleague, my Motorcity OC, Gunther.
I’m posting this drawing of my favorite Russians from Baritarian Boy from a few months ago with a Russian-related question. Lawrence has suggested the idea of translating the comic into Russian in the past, and I got further encouragement from Phobs today. So, my Russian or Russian-speaking friends and followers - would you be interested in a translation? With the deadlines I’m currently working under, this probably won’t happen until autumn, when we plan to start updating Baritarian Boy again, but it’s food for thought, yes?
So I have been getting a lot of asks asking me about prints, commissions, and how they could paper their walls in my art (not kidding, like three of you specifically asked about covering your walls with my things - you darlings!). So let’s tackle one thing at a time!
First of all, I just put together an FAQ page - take a look and let me know if there is anything missing or anything you want to know about.
Secondly, about commissions - this is as good a time as any to announce that I am once again closing commissions until the end of the summer. I just signed a contract for a big illustrating job and submitted a proposal for a queer erotic comic for an anthology (more exciting info on both these developments to follow!), and both of these deadlines are in September. So I’m going to wrap up the jobs I currently have and not take any more until these big projects are finished.
Thirdly - prints and sales. I just updated the Esty store as it has never been updated before! The above picture is only a small portion of what’s for sale. There is a crapload of original art (including some of these dandy miniatures and demon silhouettes), art prints, packages of Rhinestone Follies paper dolls and greeting cards. A bunch of my Lawrence’s art is also for sale - including amazing portraits of Baritarian royalty the Seven Deadly Sins from our comic Baritarian Boy! So please check it out!
