Toronto Draws Tintin
So last night, Adam and I stayed up watching Buffy and drawing Tintin. He is submitting something to this cool fundraiser thing The Beguiling is doing. I am not, because I am absolutely not a cartoonist, but like most times I end up drawing something, I was feeling jealous and also had a weird idea, so I came up with this. Basically, this is a kinda lame visual pun about Tintin being the Tin Man...

Storm’s psychological motivations revealed! Rogue broaches a truce! Psylocke braids hair like a pro! Jubilee throws her hands up! Jean Grey remains dead (for now!). Actually, I don’t think Psylocke is braiding hair like a pro. I don’t think she’s got a clue what she’s doing!
strange as it ever was: rappin about marshalls.... →
Amy and I used to be roommates. It was awesome. amygoth: I shop my brains out, until it’s 9:00 out. Oh, just another Marshalls night, are you going to try another size? Bitch, I’m at Marshalls, no I’m not a sucker. Pullin out my wallet, I’m a discount baller. As you run through the aisles all you see are smiles. Sizes: mostly samples, these jeans…

I imagine in this scenario that Mystique would be Cher and Destiny would be Sonny.

So, let’s talk a bit about where all of this is coming from. My boyfriend, esteemed cartoonist Adam Bourret, was promoting his booked I’m Crazy a couple years back, and we were touring around festivals. I got a bit tired of being a “booth babe” and having people ask me which book was mine, so I decided I would make a comic of my own for when we went to the MoCCA Festival...
Coming Summer 2012...
Stay tuned for details!
The Normal Heart
Here’s a review I wrote of Studio 180’s great production of The Normal Heart for Torontoist.

You really can’t bring Storm anywhere.

Motivations explained! Weird yellow jackets drawn in full! Storm’s hair remaining mallowy and aloft!

Oh, shit. Things just got serious. At Jubilee’s birthday. And yes, Jean Grey is really dead, and yes, I did kill her in a pretty silly John Byrne homage. Some might say that if you can’t really draw, maybe you should try not replicating famous images from popular culture. To those people, I say “bah.” And I really wouldn’t worry about Jean Grey, she’s honestly...

Here, finally, is the big debut of our titular heroine, Storm. Don’t you love the way she can twist her torso so that both her breasts and her ass are on prominent display?

Oh no, not the cake! It looked like she spent a long time on that one. And the novelty “TEEN” candles because, frankly, the X-Men have no idea how old Jubilee is. And why should they? I like giving Jean Grey a good scare, though, cause she’s such a square, clearly. Lighten up, Jeanie!

Well, it looks like this birthday party is off to a raucous start! I wonder if anything could possibly go wrong? And where’s this “Storm” we heard so much about on the title page? You know, even though Psylocke arguably did the least amount of work for this party (because I’m assuming Rogue went on a dangerous mission to steal that—what, brandy?—from Moira MacTaggart’s secret stash), she’s...
