Leia Weathington and Erika Moen are Smut Peddlers. Or at least, they’re comics creators who have contributed a 7 page opus de smut to contribute to an independent tome of lady-centric comics pornography. What the hell does any of that even mean? It’s so much better to hear them tell it, as well as the story of how they came to be collaborators, and what it’s like to work at Periscope Studios, apparently an oasis of sanity and awesomeosity in an industry not so much known for either things. Erika also breaks down the inspired question from Jeff Parker at the heart of her collaboration with him, “Bucko,” and since we’re discussing the art of titillation, it only makes sense that Paul Ryan’s pictures come up for discussion. BONUS: Leia and Bobby slapfight each other over fashion and mispronunciations!
Hey guys! Once a year for the last three, my good friends Katie Lane, Dylan Meconis, Bill Mudron, and I have gathered together to record a podcast about the ins and outs of being a self-employed freelancer. If you missed our live broadcasting, fret not! For recordings, both podcast and video, are here! For you! It is a two-hour long ordeal, so they’ve been broken into two, roughly hour-long segments. Podcast Version (From Work Made For Hire):
Man, with the holidays coming up, surely you are looking for some finely crafted goods to give as presents, right? Lemme just point your eyeballs to: Bill Mudron’s Shop Dylan Meconis’ Shop My Shop and original artwork
“Self-Publishing Like a Rockstar” was the very first panel I’ve ever organized and hoo boy was I nervous! Fortunately Meredith Gran, Shaennon Garrity and Lucy Knisley agreed to speak on it and share their knowledge with the standing-room-only crowd.
For those of you who could not make it to the Stumptown Comics Fest and listen to our panel in th’ reals, I have made, just for you, an annotated recording!
Thanks to Star St. Germain for loaning me her super fancy microphone and Aaron Duran for fixing the audio file so that it is actually listenable.
While there are no graphics in the above video, I have included (I hope) helpful notes written throughout to direct people towards the resources we mention and serve as visual bookmarks for the specific topics and questions we cover.
