YDKJ: The Art Is Done

CARSON GRUBAUGH:

Hi all, nice to see you. In the words of Aaron Lewis, " It's been a while." (F**k that dude for ruining such a common phrase!)

Over the summer I steadily plugged away at the art for:

and am now done with BOTH issues. That is right, folks, a two-issue mini-series that will be part of the promotional strategy for Vol. 1 of SDOAR.

Now that the art is done I will piece the books together digitally, letter them, and pass everything over to Sean to perform his dark magicks on.

In the process of mocking the book up it struck me how much ground we manage to cover in two goofy issues: 90's Bad-Girl/Jacques Derrida mash ups, the political atmosphere of the United States, art history, the universe, nipple-censorship, Boris Vallejo, menstrual blood, the human brain, a call for diversity, and so much more!

So much thanks to Benjamin Hobbes for the AvenJacques logo. Killed it!



I mean, any book that can make Aunt Sadie react like this

has got to be freaking awesome.

I like how Sadie is literally clutching her pearls...nice touch. The Sadie drawing almost looks like a Dave-Sim-does-Neal-Adams panel.

Menstrual blood! Oh no! That is literally the worst thing Dave Sim can imagine!

Damian,
I wouldn't put money on that.
