Drew a few of the characters at different ages for practice.
Overall everyone gets more grumpy as they grow older. Except Rapture. He’s the same amount of unpleasant.
Practiced drawing Siren and Mourning’s figure yesterday because I desperately needed to. I am trying to have every woman in VACANT with another body type than the other which is hard for me because I think women are hard to draw. Siren and Mourning are both pretty muscular so I had to make sure they didn’t have the same build as each other. I also wanted to make sure Siren’s build wasn’t the same as Hayze’s. Seems like that would be easier because Hayze is a man, but I don’t see a lot of muscular women in a lot of entertainment. Especially someone as built as Mourning.
I also needed to remember where all of Siren’s scars are. So, yeah, nudity.

VACANT is out of it’s Hiatus! WOOHOO!
This past weekend they attended MOCCA fest and met with their good friends Nick and Justique, the previous owners of audio shocker. Michelle discussed with Justique about female body image and how it impacts our social lifestyle. Recently, Nickolay Lamm started developing a new doll replicating the “standard paportion s of a 19 year old year,” but, what is “standard?” Does it reinforce idealistic body image?
Michelle and Heather finish the podcast giving The Lego Movie a positive review describing the movie as smart, fun. and bring up that possibly they are conscious of their female fanbase.
I am putting together the “How I did it” portion of Volume 1. Here’s a photo of the binder for Volume 1. What you see there is an outline of the entire story we had to put together to make sure everything made sense. This is actually a very outdated version. I probably need to make a new one.
It’s Tuesday which means that VACANT has been updated. Check it out!
Michelle and I finally launched the Comics For Thought website for the online courses we are starting in May. Sign ups start on April 15th though, and there are only 20 slots available for all of the lessons combined. So, if you are interested mark it on your calendar.
You can also, of course, subscribe to the newsletter that will also remind you about it.
If you have any questions, let me know.
