Holy Moley!


I can't even believe the amount of new visitors I've been getting here in the past few days (hello!), it's really been overwhelming, encouraging, and downright awesome. I wanted to thank everyone for taking the time to look around and for all the really wonderful comments folks have been leaving. It means a lot to know people enjoy what I do, so thank you! Tons!

That said -- egads, I should probably update a little more. I'll be attempting to put up the past month or so's backlog in a series of posts over the next week or two, as well as setting up permanent pages for the comics I've done and eventually linking to those here as well.

In the meantime, some ladies, some monsters, some things! (click to enlarge)

  4. I think all this rush is coming from Drawn for sure.
    I also watch you on DA, but I never knew you had a blog! Nor did I realize you're part of the storybook project, which I adore. I've been a fan for ages.

  5. I got here via @nedroid's twitter feed (and later saw a link on Colleen Doran's Facebook or blog (can't remember)). You have a new fan, loved the story and your other art.

  12. I read Face All Red after seeing a post on Reddit. A lot of people there enjoyed it immensely. You should check out the discussion they have going on in the comments. I thought it was really great story telling with both with the narrative and the art work. Keep being awesome!

  14. I found you because of reddit as well and let me say, your illustration style is AMAZING. You also are everything I want to be as an illustrator--- someone with a distinct style who knows how to use colors and make characters come alive.

    The final thing is that I appreciate so much how you draw more curvy figures on women :) From "face all red" the plump wife is simply beautiful.

    I hope you post more soon!

  18. =D Its really our pleasure to see your artwork. I was totally blown away by your comic 'His Face All Red'. It was shared by someone on facebook and thats how I came across your blog. :)

    Also, I think you're really talented when it comes to story-boarding comics.

  19. Found "His Face All Red" through Reddit, and even though it's probably been said to death: amazing work. The story, your style, color work, even the type placement and page breaks - all stunning. It's been a good while since I've made art, but that made me want to start drawing again.

    Thank you. Beautiful work.

  20. I was linked to "His Face All Red" through a message board, tried to view the index of your website and was redirected here.

    You are a wonderful artist!! Your style and color use is so cool. It's such a treat to look at your stuff.

  22. I came here after reading "His Face All Red" as well. It's made the rounds in my circle of friends, and we all seem to agree that it is really quite good.

    Thank you.

  23. Hi Emily!
    A friend refered me to your website to read His Face All Red, and I loved so many different aspects of it- color is beautiful and full, panels are cleverly rendered and move with the story and compose the images very well. The story itself is intriguing, EGADS! what happened to his brother?!

    Having said this, I wanted to contact you about potentially submitting an image for a music/comic zine, please let me know if you'd be interested in doing something like this. I couldn't find any contact information, so I decided to leave you a comment!

    With admiration,
    Dragana

  24. You should really consider publishing a graphic novel. Your art is as good as or better than anything I've seen before. Thanks for sharing these images and stories.

  25. Dear Emily,

    Found your site by way of many links and it's fantastic. I need (need!) a way to purchase a nice big print/book of His Face All Red from you. Please?

  27. Hot damn your "Face all Red" short story was amazing! I could not keep myself from clicking next it was so captivating and the art style so enjoyable! Keep up the good work, I look forward to browsing the rest of your work :D !!

  28. Just amazing stuff all round. Like everybody else, I loved His Face All Red. If you can produce stuff like that consistently, publish a book already!

    And do an HP Lovecraft short story. HFAR makes me think it would be a good fit.

  31. Hi Emily, I found you out and I found this blog when I saw a comic you made posted on a very popular website. HFAR was a very enthralling comic and I enjoyed re-reading it. :D

    I made a post about it on my blog too, hopefully you get more exposure.

  43. Wound up here 'cause Gabe of Penny-arcade.com posted a link to "His Face All Red" on his twitter.

    My wife absolutely loves the comic. Is there any way to purchase prints of your work? My wife would die if I got her prints of "His Face All Red" for Christmas. She has always been into the writing styles of Poe and Gorey, and I think this particular story falls into that tradition quite well! Please let me know if there is a way to purchase prints!

  44. I found you via "His Face All Red" which was forwarded to me by a friend. Awesome comic and now I'd like to see more of your works..

    ReplyDelete
  45. "His Face All Red" freaked me right the eff out, which isn't easy! I loved it! (Saw it when Neil Gaiman tweeted the link, btw!)

    And I LOVE LOVE LOVE that drawing above of the dark-haired gal in the white dress with her favorite werewolf. I showed it to my husband, who loves werewolves, and said, "Look honey! It's us!" Ha!

    Do you sell prints anywhere? :-D

  46. Like everyone else, I loved His Face All Red. I thought that the art, script and storytelling were all incredible, and above all the pacing was just masterful. As close to perfection as I've ever seen. I'm now really enjoying looking through your other art. I'm really looking forward to watching your career inevitably flower.
