Now, why am I still on about it? Why do I feel like I need to say something? Because my intent in creating the comic was to communicate my view, find others like me, and be helpful in general. When someone is new to this comic, new to me in general, or who have simply not followed everything I do ever everywhere, I don’t want so much out-of-context nonsense to occur. For people to react is such immensely ridiculous ways could diminish what I try to do by scaring people away before they have a chance to learn for themselves.
So if you’re curious about RECENT me…
In terms of answering the question of was I a sexist, knuckle dragging sleazeball BACK THEN? Hardly. I did go back to the forum and browse what we used to talk about, and it really was not at all “hur hur hur ::drool:: at all, it actually WAS more about support and leaning on each other while we struggled with our sexual and romantic needs. I also did this fun thing that the internet lets us do these days, I looked back into the abyss to see who exactly was doing this sort of thing, and glass houses, y’all.
I know it’s not the best idea to engage with trolls like this, but drawing that art sure was some fun therapy! Yup, that’s me, big ‘ol Cave Jade, skeevy pervert. I also have lovely fans and friends who have had many nice things to say about the matter, and the comic in general.
Anywho… I hope the relatively open book of me is of some use to you on your path of learning in life.
If only my life were so glamorous!
Well, I was getting a bit more creatively organized… but then I had to move in a hurry (Oh man, a week without drawing tools nearby – unsettling!). I am now tearing my hair out trying to figure out what I can part with because my stuff does not fit in the living space I have now. In the coming months I’m sure I’ll be putting up some kind of eBay fire-sale style thing. Until then, if you can help me adjust to life in the new place via donations or getting stuff I need, it would be deeply appreciated (I had no idea my claustrophobia had gotten as bad as it has until I was surrounded with boxes up to my neck and couldn’t get out the front door without attempting a bellydancing-worm-wiggle around things).
Until I can get back to something more stable, please enjoy this small wallpaper of me in a Doctor Who mash-up costume.
Finally, things are fixed, and I can resume proper updating! Check out JadeGordon.com for other updates and info!
OH HAI INTERNETS! I HAZ UR JOEL. DO NOT PANIC.
Topataco had a pre-con party at Arcane Comics in West Seattle.
How and why did I go? What con am I even talking about?
So, Joel Watson of Hijinx Ensue fame needed a couch for crashing, as he will be workin’ the Emerald City Comic Con. Having kinda been there and done that, it seemed natural to offer. And so, I am swept away in the rush of comicness that is invading Seattle right now. Don’t worry, I’ll set him free when the experiments are complete make sure he gets to the con on time.
Joel responds: “Thats the same thing Leeloo said to Corbin Dallas Multipass”
And in my glee that anyone gets that subtle joke, I made this to respond. This is Joel, finding a special appreciation for Seattle *ahem* that allows him to save us from a terrible burning death under the horrible daystar that came out today.
I love The 5th Element, I really do!
Ever heard of Hourly Comic Day? If not, now you have. Here is my effort!
So, in 1985 I was just starting 6th grade in a new school. I had a cousin who worked in fashion design, and often I would get hand-me-downs from her. I always thought they were awesome clothes, and had been using them to play dress-up since I was little. Well, there was this one outfit…
I didn’t realize until many years later that the pink triangle was a symbol for the GLBT community. So, I had apparently spent time at the age of 11 dressed as what I can only describe as a gay superhero. JJ here is in the exact jumpsuit I wore in 1985.
Happy Halloween, eh? :)
