SwordCat Writes | A Digital Letter Column


I am clearly a great feminist -- MOVE OVER, TINA FEY!!!

...sorry, I'm too tired to think of a new joke. And hey, is this page late?

OH. SHIT.

I tried so hard, but the boobs tripped me up. Anytime I draw boobs, the final image you see is about 7 layers of Pro-white. I fucking suck at drawing boobs.

"Detective-ing" was one of those things I adored immediately upon creating it. It's survived the roughly 15 edit passes. When a first draft line makes it through, it's like it won the Olympics.:)

This started out as a straight movie-frame widescreen-style thing, but I got really,really, REALLY bored and decided there should be electric phone lines and cords. And nipples. At least one, anyway. So, nipple.

The pillows are Freudian. Work it out.

Hard page to letter; listening to the "new" Garth Brooks box set I somehow didn't hear about in November the whole time. The dialogue for this page was originally MUCH shorter, but, as this is the return from the semi-denouement of the midpoint, and it's been over 2 months since I posted a full story page, I kinda wanted to kill three birds with one stone:

Bird 1: Refresher.
Bird 2: Bonding.
Bird 3: Clarity.

...I've had complaints that some things haven't been clear enough or fully explained, so I'm poking fun at the critics who missed the obvious,and the Caley who maaaybe coulda explained a skosh(sp?) more from the start.

Those birds are in the oven now. Let's eat some mutha-cluckin' BIRDS.

There likely will not be a new story page this week; I'm WAY behind on the other book I'm drawing, and must finish some work there. I'll try, but it's not likely; there WILL be a new story page next week, and I'll try for two after that. Wish me luck, and send me piranha chutney.


As usual, COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN! Send me a PM, or hit me up on Face-
book or Twitter. My rates are reasonable -- don't reason a cow.

Soup sock,
-Caley

Good catch.

I purposely pushed him to the background, even overlapping dialogue onto him to add to the effect, but that's Erica's fellow cop Nicky sleeping behind her.

Guess what they just did.

Tibbittz, finally finished reading through the first four issues and I have to say...I'm loving it! Yea your fanstastic art drew me in, but it's the story that's kept me turning the page (or clicking the button I should say). I just didn't know where it was going, and I'm saying that in a good way, I couldn't guess what was next and I love that, great writing. For someone who has gone through and is going through so much in their life you should feel extremely proud to have accomplished what you have with this comic. Subbed and looking forward to every page!

Anyone who pays attention to EK at all is aces in my book, but the readers, the real READERS... you guys are my favorite.

I try my best to make the art pretty, and perhaps even vaguely clear at times, but as much as I love to draw, I am a writer, a storyteller, at heart, first and foremost, a lot of commas.

I'm happy to hear this has been a twisty, turn-y ride; I worked very hard (13 full edit passes at this point, I think) to make a big stack of crazy notes all fit together, and I think that has a fun effect on the story, which is built out of all these little interlinking sequences.

Wow, can I blather.

I mean to say, thank you. Really, thank you so much for reading. Posts like yours are what keeps me going when everything else isn't enough to keep me going.

I'm happy to have storytold and entertained, and look forward to throwing more curveballs why did I say curveballs I don't even watch sports oh God someone help me...
