There is a good reason for this drawing, I swear.

Are you going to SPX? Well, then tonybreed wants you to draw yourself dancing. It’s very important.

Q

Anonymous asked:

hey! i hope im not disrupting you i just wanted to say that your comic for that lgbtqia+ camp looks cool, but please dont use trans* with an asterisk like that, its pretty problematic, esp with its history of being used against trans women! thankyou for your time!

A

I don’t like to get too personal on this blog, so this is the only thing I’ll say.

Anon: Thanks for sharing your concern - I’ll pass it on to the camp organizers. I was unaware of the controversy of the asterisk after “trans” and neither the camp nor I want to contribute to the oppression of trans women. From what I know of QORDS, they strive to be a safe and welcoming space for all LGBTQQIA people and will take this concern very seriously.

That said, I refer to myself as a trans* person in many contexts. For me personally as a non-binary transgender person, it frees me from having to write out my very specific and personal gender identity to strangers online (as I just did for this post). People, even queer folks and other transgender folks, often project a binary identity onto me, which is hurtful and makes me feel invisible/invalid. I find this tendency is lessened when I include the asterisk, so it is reassuring and empowering to me. I understand this may not be true for everyone, so I will consider my use of it in the future more judiciously. The language for this stuff is evolving very quickly, so please be cautious when telling people what words they can and can’t use to describe their own gender identities. 

I made a flyer for QORDS, a queer oriented summer camp in NC. The camp looks super cool and I’m really glad it exists for kids today. 

Edit: Removed the asterisk from “trans*”

OK, I never do this kind of thing. But constellation-funk creates in one a strong sense of moral obligation. So here goes…

Oh man, I don’t think I’ve done one of these since about 2007. So I think I can make this one exception. I hope shuffling my commute playlist and my work playlist counts, since that’s 90% of what I listen to. You can judge me, it’s okay.

Whelp, I’m supposed to tag 10 people. But that seems a lil excessive. If you see this and need to procrastinate, consider this your excuse. Otherwise, back to our regularly scheduled drawin programming shortly.

Enjoying working on this kinda thing

sketchbook comic i made on a plane a little while back while sitting next to a very proper-looking older white lady who ordered herself a cheese platter and a little glass of wine. afterwards she read a romance novel.

sometimes making character sheets feels really creepy.

also, i don’t know how people do this without being obsessive about it. obsessively is the only way i can design things.

Hello, friends! Sorry about the lull in activity here– got sidetracked by real life for a bit. 
I’m back to tell ya I’m part of a zine show+exchange, STACKS, at the always-wonderful Light Grey Art Lab; the show chronicles the past 30 years, from 1984-2014. And, they’re for sale~ mine’s here, find all of them here!
For my year, 2012, I collected & illustrated friends’ memories from the year, as well as my own. This was my first time directly working w/ risograph printing, which was all sorts of cool. (Shout-out to Walker Mettling of Ada Books/Providence Comics Consortium, who printed all these babies, & to my buddy, Hope Anderson, who trimmed them all at DWRI Letterpress! Check ‘em out!)
Also, these ~beautiful~ photographs of it were taken by Light Grey Art Lab. (So many thanks to the whole staff… for being patient while I had printing issues & the like. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.) 
OH! I’m way better w/ updates on Instagram (my handle: estrhong), so if you’d like to see more of what I’ve been up to, head on over there! I post personal stuff from time to time… so hey, get to know me~!!

Gimme!

Hey guys, definitely go buy one of these! Esther’s illustrations are really incredible and there is a huge range of stories/memories inside. One of them is about finding a good friend through craigslist missed connections. The printing is beautiful! But done’t take my word for it…go order one.  spx:

Hello, friends! I will be tabling with emotionaldistance and jmrickert at SPX in September. My main new thing is gonna be REM Pt. 1, which is 27 pages of my weird queer comics printed riso by Issue Press. I’m very excited to share it with y’all, and I’m considering setting up pre-orders if I can get my act together this week. 

Anyway, this is a first look at the cover. Turned out better than I coulda hoped!
