Wolverine smells something good, birthday cake! Check out this sweet panel and awesome Garrus Vakarian cake! I think I should stick to drawing comics and leave cake decorating to the professionals.
Best birthday cake ever. <3
My acrylic charm designs for Emerald City Comicon this year! I’ve made the regular animals before, but the displacer beast and red dragon are new. A little nod to my favorite hobby.
On the table today, wolverine diggin’ into coffee and pie. Ninjas, are just off panel. Even a ninja waits for you to finish your pie.
A little love for Garrus and FemShep! I’ve been working on this piece slowly since early January, and I’m proud to be able to post it today. Enjoy. :)
Stunning Mass Effect artwork from Grace Allison!
I played The Last of Us: Left Behind last night. Had to celebrate by drawing Ellie and Riley!
Let’s Talk About Comics
I was recently interviewed for an article in Paste Magazine, along with Paul and several other creators, on the topic of sexism in the comics industry. The article didn’t have room for everything I had to say, so here are my answers to writer Frannie Jackson’s…
Here’s a look at that beetle piece for ECCC. I’m still availed for more pre-commissions. If that’s what your into shoot me a line. Elliscomics(at)gmail
B̶i̶z̶a̶r̶r̶e̶ All-too-typical story from our friend @cegoudreau.
Just something that happened to me at a convention a while ago that stuck with me, and finally decided to doodle after reading Gingerhaze’s recent post.
I’ve had the incredible luck of living in a city where women in comic shops, whether they’re behind the counter or are customers themselves, isn’t uncommon. But I know that that isn’t true for everyone. There’s a great list going around tumblr of safe spaces for comic fans and I highly encourage you to find one near you and pick up a comic or two, or even a copy of Ms. Marvel #1 (PS: I REALLY LIKED IT).
In-depth news platform Narratively featured a comic of mine this week. “The Secret Life of Gitmo’s Women” collects the two interviews I illustrated for Symbolia Magazine in collaboration with Sarah Mirk early last year. These two stories haven’t been free to read online before now, so head over and take a look. (Note: these comics deal with issues of harassment and sexual assault, read with awareness.)
The comic has also been accepted to this year’s Open Engagement conference in New York, where Laura Sandow (one of the veterans we worked with) will be presenting it in May. Unfortunately it sounds like I won’t be able to make the conference due to conflicting convention arrangements, but I do hope those of you in the NY area can go check it out.
