The Life of Alexis Perkins

The Life of Alexis Perkins

An LGBT comic about a girl named Alexis Perkins who is a young trans girl who also struggles with Asperger's Syndrome - a form of Autism. The story is about her senior year of high school and possibly beyond. The story tells her story through the eyes of her and her friends. It tells of the ups and downs of her life, including the prejudice she faces from those she should have been able to trust most to accept her.

The story features the authoresses attempt to show a plethora of lesser known orientations (such as Quoiromantic/sexual, demiromantic/sexual, aromantic/sexual, etc.) and thus will feature a heavy amount of non-straight characters. It also features strong language, sexual themes, nudity, and possible triggering scenes. The comic also features both religious and anti-religious tones. The comic is rated PG-13 at the low end, but is likely higher, near a possible R rating due to some events that will be featured in the comic.

Viewer discretion is advised. The authoresses of the comic do not take responsibility for someone being triggered, upset, or offended by the comic.

Sometimes, patient-doctor confidentiality is a good thing, too, especially when it comes to transgender concerns with teenagers, or anyone, really, and when those issues come to the forefront. It's sad and tragic that these protections are being stripped away from teenagers in school, by wild-eyed, foaming at the mouth politicians, and others, in favor of public, unauthorized disclosing, leading to forced so-called 'conversion' or 'reparative' therapy.

Two updates in a row? Does that mean we're officially back? That's currently the plan. We'll see how things progress, but at the moment, yes, Ren is officially moved in and is currently trying to get back to one page a week.

Meanwhile, Alexis and Alison finally have a chance to chat with one another. How will things go between these two?
@Fox_Rainbow:Whatever form of medium you need is good ^^
Water color ok?
Hiya is watercolor ok?
I just won't get time to do digital.
Thanks,

Sometimes, patient-doctor confidentiality is a good thing. Thankfully, it wasn't only because of that that Nurse Greenwood is letting Alexis off the hook. Here's hoping Alexis doesn't return to her drinking habits, though.
Life of Alexis Perkins Fanart Contest!
What you could win:
1st Place: The ability to be a regular background character in the comic!
2nd Place: The ability to be a background character in an upcoming chapter of Life of Alexis Perkins!
3rd Place: A one time cameo in an upcoming chapter of Life of Alexis Perkins!

How to enter:
Submit fanart of you (or your OC) with any of the LoAP cast members to either my email (in my profile, make sure the subject is "Alexis Perkins Fanart" or I might miss it), through a PM here on SJ before December 1st, 2018 at 12:00 AM EST, or by using the Twitter hashtag #LoAPFanartContest.
Unable to draw? You may write a short 2,000 word (maximum, it can be shorter) story as well as long as it adheres to the rules below!

Rules:
1. Nothing too sexy. Please keep it PG-13-ish. Mild nudity is okay, but no sex and no visible privates. Remember, the characters are under 18 in this comic.
2. It must contain at least one Life of Alexis Perkins character AND either you or one of your OCs. You may not submit art of just the characters from LoAP, nor of just your OCs. You also may not submit if any characters in the image outside of Life of Alexis Perkins characters do not belong to you. (No fanart with say... Sora from KH, Kari from Digimon, Ash from Pokemon, etc.)
3. The characters must be in a setting that fits the Life of Alexis Perkins universe. (i.e. no art of them in cyberspace, in a fantasy world, etc. Hanging out at the mall, at someone's house - even your OCs, etc. is fine)
4. Your art must be submitted by the deadline. (If it is submitted on December 1st at like... 3AM, I might still allow it, but if it's like... December 3, it won't be counted.)
5. You may draw/write something shippy if you want (you and Alexis, or you and Trevor, etc.), just keep rule 1 in mind if you decide to do so. (Also realize that I have already determined a specific relationship for the main characters, so your ship will not work out in the comic.)
6. A minimum of 5 submissions must be reached for the contest. If it appears there is not enough interest, the contest will likely be cancelled.

That's it! If something comes up (feel free to ask questions!) I'll edit this post with more info. Otherwise, I hope you all will have fun! (Also, all fanart sent into the contest will be featured here after the contest is over).
damn
Oh, hell.

Doesn't that mean I can't be Guest1111119 anymore, I have to actually sign up and login from now on? ...

Damn it. 8n/
@Guest1111119: See, if you had said it like that the first time, that'd have seemed genuine and much more useful... Well, I guess the biggest issue is, obviously, the reliability. Still, as this is a thing that involves helping Ren with art... I'd rather that she dealt with this.
??
@EmilyAnnCoons:


Silly goose, I already told you about that. You were being teased for inconsistency. But it was never important to anybody. It was only ever an excuse to razz you.


I wouldn't dream of replacing Ren. I was only CONTEMPLATING the feasibility of helping out. At this time I don't know how well that would work out. I was thinking the way to start would be to do a only a frame or two at first as a trial. You would give a description of what you want in the frame and a character count for conversations so I know what size to make the conversation bubbles. Then I would try to make it happen. If it works out, any frames I helped with would be credited to Ren. I don't care about that. Besides, I would really be using her work anyways. Cut into pieces, rearranged, recolored where needed, recomposed and pieced back together. But any possibilities are only tentative at best.

Here's the thing. My PC is in storage. (Runs Mint and has GIMP. Photoshop is a possibility as well, depending. Right offhand I don't remember how well my VMware was running when last I left it.) Where I'm staying will do for awhile. But I don't trust it enough to bring my computer there. So, access is not so very easy and all. Hence, if I can be of any help at all, it would be via public library computer and I'd be using MS Paint. I don't yet know how all that would work out.

Earlier, I didn't have any time at all for any visits to the public library. Now, it seems I might be able to fit that into my schedule a few times per week. But not sure yet. All of this is only tentative so far.
@mandalorianjedi: This is a cute pic. Good job.
@Guest1111119: "Once a week, my ass" isn't complaining? Could've fooled me -shrugs- Yeah, there's all kinds of programs out there that could help with artwork and such, but I've not used them well enough to try to sit down and make the comic with them. Ren is moving, so we've been on hiatus, once she finishes moving, we'll be back. I was offering for people to come do guest comics and pages and the like, but as no one has accepted the offer, we're just waiting for Ren to get back. I wasn't wanting someone to replace her.

Alexis and Elisa try to share a more intimate moment with each other, but while they talk and hug, Alexis' friends interrupt at every turn. Alexis gets a little annoyed by this, especially since she's still not sober.

Also, updates might be slow through October too. Ren is trying to finish a work on pages, but the hunt for housing is pretty stressful at the moment, and it takes up a lot of her time. I'm sorry we've had a bit of a off time here, but please continue to be patient with us <3
Huh??????
Ummm, no. I didn't say all that and I'm not complaining.

I was entertaining the notion of helping out. Did you see what I mentioned on that? Isn't that of import?
Excuse me, but....
@Guest1111119: What's important is letting the authors live their life.
They have explained why they can't update new pages right now, so there's no need to complain about the lack of updates.
Huh?
@EmilyAnnCoons:

You : "Since we've only been updating once a week"

But is that what's important?
Fanart from someone I didn't even know read my comic, but I've been a big fan of their comic for a while! This was drawn by mandalorianjedi. Here's some links to their stuff:

Profile: http://www.smackjeeves.com/profile.php?id=78329
Comic (very sexy): http://www.smackjeeves.com/comicprofile.php?id=156379

That said, once again, we are accepting more fanart! It gives us something to show off during this slow period, AND it's a thing we WILL be continuing even after the slow period is over! So send us your fanart either by PMing it to me here on SJ, or you can email me! Just make sure you put the title as "Alexis Perkins fanart" or I might miss it (and please PM me or leave a comment to tell me you sent it so I can be absolutely sure I know it's in my email). My email is in my profile.
@Guest: I don't know what you mean by "mixed messages" considering it was stated that updates would be spotty until around October at the earliest... and it's September so...
@EmilyAnnCoons:

Or you could stop with the mixed messages. Try a little consistency.

Mean? Chill with the being overly sensitive. More like puckish, wily, waggish or whimsical, perhaps. But not mean.

So, you need help with art work? Hmmmm, I'm positing how it would go to use a computer at the library to select from prior artwork, copy, recompose, recolor where needed and paste to make "new" frames. GIMP and Photoshop wouldn't be available. But I believe they have MS Paint. Are the newer versions capable of working with layers?

@mandalorianjedi: I didn't seem to get it. I've sent you a PM.
