I get to show off a set I did for Skullastic

The idea behind these ladies was to do something for them geared in the direction of a girl product, but director over there didn’t want pink bows and ribbons, he wanted different kind of gals. Not just fashionistas, not that there’s anything wrong with that, but to give a wider range of girls.  

Also to make them witches. Crafty witches. I was pretty sold on the idea with that, a little me (who made an eyeballed spell book a-la Hocus Pocus out of a binder as a 6 year old) would have been all over these.

I’ve been struggling with the idea of doing this comic for a while. I’ve never done something like this before, not only have I only done one comic, well, ever, it wasn’t about me.

Weight loss didn’t work the way I thought it would.

I’ve struggled with body issues and depression for as long as I can remember and I finally feel like I’m getting some control over it. Enough that I feel like I can talk about it. I was okay enough to write it, draw it, stare at it on a screen for hours and hours without feeling terrible. It’s a huge jump for me, I’m pretty proud to have finally done it. 

Be comfortable with yourself no matter what shape, size, haves, have-nots you got.

A change in the way you look won’t magically get rid of the demons in your head.

Long form of the comic here. I plan on printing it but it will reeeeally unlikely be in color. enjoy.
