SwordCat Writes | A Digital Letter Column


When you're used to caregiving for, say, your wife, you're used to JUST THAT MUCH caregiving. I love my sister, but taking care of her all week while my mom tries to find a new staff has been EXHAUSTING... but new page finally is yay!

This should have been done Monday night, but oh well. There are well over 50(!) layers here; there came a point where the work slowed because I lost track of where in the "stack" every picture was. Then I completely rewrote the pages -- I think the only word to survive from the original script is "cocoa".

In case you're wondering, the Artemis trashcan is my favorite thing here. I cackled like a loon several times while working on this because of that horrific thing.

It's all ridiculous Artemis crap, except for the bandage which reads "Aye, Carly!" -- I'm a HUGE fan of iCarly, and it's the kind of bandage Erica would have on hand, since she has a 6 year-old daughter in the house.


It's not just that Kathryn's disoriented -- she likes being a leader and getting respect, but she's uncomfortable being worshipped due to self esteem issues. Although she's jealous when Arayna gets worshipped in a later story, due to the flipside of those same issues.

Also: this is her introduction to twerking. The horror. THE HORROR...


Fun fact: Kathryn doesn't use the restroom! She also doesn't eat!

Her immortality works so if she's starving, any matter will be converted to calories/cells for her. She's on a tea-only diet -- so she's living on water, air, and recycled effluence. She's very distant from her own humanity as this point, and isn't used to being reminded of just how human she really is.

This is the first time she's peed in about 60 years, and she wasn't even awake for it.


About the "background art":
Some of this art has already been seen in Jack's apartment. Most of the artists' other work is listed below in the Contributors' section, the Top 25 section, or the More Cool Comics section. There's a LOT of cool stuff there to check out. Please follow some links. This would have been one hella empty wall without the wonderful contributions and fanarts I've received (I only drew two(!) of the wall pics myself). I am so happy to showcase them like this, and so grateful for all the time everyone spent making them. You all rock.

Soup sock,
-Caley

Looking at panel one again, Kathryn looks like I do when my ass is wedged into the back of the couch and I'm trying to stand up, so the torso/legs/head proportion makes much more sense now. As well, I hadn't noticed that Erica's head was tilted straight down (my bad!). I really think the pigtails are throwing me off, Erica seems to be showing off her "playful sexy" side instead of her "slutty tom-girl" side. She REALLY wants to get into Kathryn's pants (while she's conscious and consenting, I mean)... lol

I almost drew Kathryn "floating" on the couch in the roughs stage; I "sunk" her in at the last moment.

The pigtails (and teddy bear) weren't in the script, but I realized Erica should be trying to seem less imposing and more inviting here. And yeah, she's really trying to use the cuteness to get laid. This feels like kismet to her, but Kathryn's not in the same headspace.

Edited so Erica is clearly lying in panel 7.
