Is Pretty Deadly over? I keep scrolling to the "P" section of my LCS' new comics email each week hoping to see it, and finally decided to do some googling, and I can't find any mention of a solicit/release date for issue 6 anywhere.
No! Not over. We just took a break.
Rough plan is that we’ll be doing one arc a year for 4 years, I think.
I am hard at work on arc two right now. Expect issue 6 early next year.
The folks at Respect Films who are working on that SHE MAKES COMICS documentary wrote asking me for photos of me with fans/Carol Corps that they could use. As it happens, I don’t have very many…? Or, most of the ones I do have are not *my photos* so I wouldn’t be able to give them permission to use them.
So, with their okay, I’m turning this over to you —
If you have a photo of me and you (or a group of us) that you wouldn’t mind giving to the documentary, would you email it to them with a statement of your permission?
kellysue reblogged a post from skatekane earlier, asking if anyone had an archive of all of Kelly Sue’s Bitches Get Shit Done (#bgsd) texts. I did happen to have one, because I’ve been collecting them for a project I haven’t had time to work on yet, so since there seemed to be a demand, I thought it would be good to post them.
This goes through October 17th 20th, which was the last text sent out as of this posting. I’ll try to remember to go back and edit this semi-regularly to keep it up to date if people want to use it as a resource. (Also, I think I might have joined #bgsd a few days after the start, so there might be a couple from the beginning I missed. If you have them, feel free to send them to me either via tumblr or at fourteenacross at gmail.com.)
For more info on Bitches Get Shit Done (including how to sign up), check out this post from Kelly Sue! The short version is that if you sign up for the service, you get a text from KSD a few times a week nagging you to get to work. It is really super incredibly helpful, at least to me, to have someone you admire/respect needling you to be your best you.
Anyway, below the cut are all the texts I have archived! Have fun, bitches! Be inspired and productive and get shit done!
We don’t have comic book shops in Lebanon and only two bookstores in the country actually have comics sections that carry a limited selection of graphic novels and trades, but I am nevertheless a huge comics fan, Marvel geek and avid indie reader. I get all my monthly single issues digitally…
is there any kind of archive for Kelly Sue’s #BGSD texts? I don’t have all of them saved on my phone anymore and there are more than a few that are things I’d like to have written down somewhere. Has anyone been collecting them somewhere? Should I start?
Does anyone have any suggestions for where to meet (and what to do)? Preferably somewhere/something dog-friendly so Lockjaw can make an appearance. :) (Thanks everybodyilovedies!!) The only places I can think of right now are…
This most recent time around, I was drawing Emma Frost simply because I felt like it. I did a sketch of a woman during some free time, and her mood reminded me of Emma, so I ran with it. What I didn’t realize at the time was that the last time I drew Emma (my favorite X-Man) was almost exactly 6 years ago. Looking at the two pieces, I don’t think most would ever realize they’re from the same artist.
It’s easy to be critical of our own work. In order to get better, we have to be. You need to be able to see your own flaws in order to know what to improve upon. However, when we do well, it’s also important to take some pride in it. I was proud of my most recent portrait of Emma. I learned a ton in terms of technique while working on it, and honestly thought it was my best work to date.
… but seeing it side by side with my last attempt at portraying Emma, I’ll admit… I’m even more proud now. I’ve worked hard, especially in the past 2-3 years, and I think I have some proof that it is finally paying off.
Now somebody remind me that I have to draw Emma again in July of 2019.
