It's been a while since we've seen Tony (introduced here) and Lobster the wizard (last seen in this story).

They'd be awfully cute going on adventures in Murphy and Keno hoodies (and for any mental imagery some readers might find upsetting, cutting to an exterior shot of the Enterprise works incredibly well in this scenario).

@Connors: This is one of those scenes that just popped into my head, and I'm honestly not sure whether Poe's being cruel or not. Giving someone a last night of youth could easily be seen as a kindness.

I have no idea whether or not George Takei celebrates his birthday by getting monstrously high, but I'd like to think so. If only so I can imagine him eating cake in a bush Johnny Cash style.

Paige and I met Chip Zdarsky today. He was doing a signing at my local comic shop. He's very nice, we chatted for a few minutes and bonded briefly over how dicks are fun to draw.

Got him to sign our Sex Criminals books (which are a hilarious sci-fi crime-drama sex-comedy) and the first issue of the new Howard the Duck comic he's helming (which I haven't read yet).

Sex Criminals is my comics recommendation of the week. However it's one of those books where the less you know about it going in the better. The back of the book (and the description on Amazon, grr) give away the first-chapter twist (which is kind of OK because it's a great hook, and that's how blurbs work) but it works much better as a reveal at the end of the first chapter than something you know before cracking the cover.

If you see Sex Criminals in a comic shop, read the first chapter, you'll see what I mean. Then buy the book because the characters will have won you over.

And hide it from your parents if you still live with them, because there's butts and stuff.

Went to see a showcase of Chinese dance in the Convention Center in town last week. It was a touring group called Shen Yun. Kind of a tour of the history and mythology of China through the medium of dance, with a couple of numbers about how you shouldn't trust a fucking word the Chinese government tells you.

Standard showcase formula, the curtain went down between dances and the hosts would come out to tell you about the next dance. Fantastic orchestra, and some really impressive and athletic choreography. Lots of stuff with long sleeves and handkerchiefs and the like making dynamic flowing mandalas of synchronised human motion. Some of the dances were stories, some of them were just dances, it was all very skillfully done and beautiful to observe.

There were a couple of bits about Falun Dafa that pulled me out of it a bit. The music and dancing were of the same high standard as the rest of the show, but the outfits were very mormon-looking, which was out of kilter with the rest of the costumes in the show (which had kind of a live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender feel to them. Not the live-action film, a live-action version of the cartoon, so, y'know...good.)

Shen Yun tours all over the world, except in China, where they're not allowed on account of the whole Falun Gong thing. While I'm uncomfortable with religious messaging, I find the idea of a dance troupe in exile on account of their religious beliefs wonderfully romantic.

The reality of it is somewhat baffling though.

The whole Falun Gong / Falun Dafa movement is a modern practice, first taught publicly by Li Hongzhi in Northeast China in the spring of 1992 (thanks, Wikipedia) drawing on buddhist philosophy and introducing a bunch of new physical meditation techniques. Fairly harmless stuff, as far as I can gather. However, they didn't want to sign up to some government messaging body in the 90s and were declared a menace to the state. Quite an interesting story really, parts of it remind me of one that's quite well known here in the west.

I thought *America* was Rome. Huh. Maybe they can be Carthage.

Anyway, luckily the falun dafa story had the alternative moral of 'My Ass Looks Fantastic In These Slacks', which I can take as an intentional part of the message because it's Art and I can do what I like with it.

It's just personal taste. I did the inking digitally for a while and went back to doing it the old-fashioned way because I like it better. Not exactly sure why, possibly something to do with having something I can hold in my hand when it's finished.

There's some digital manipulation to correct errors or thin out/thicken lines (in the above strip I fucked up Aya's whole head in the 6th panel, drew it again in some blank space and corrected it in Photoshop), but for the most part I just draw stuff.

Inks
Colours are done digitally, but yeah, line art's good old fashioned pen and paper. Well, bristol board, which is more like card, but it's the same basic principle.

@Ryno91: It's saying the image has been moved or deleted already.

Concerning the use of Neko the Kitty images: If it's for personal use like a desktop background or avatar, or just sharing a strip on your blog or somesuch, I'm generally happy about it (Moreso if people include a link back to nekothekitty.net as a courtesy). It's only if someone sells my work or uses it for marketing or promotion without there being a contract between us that I get persnickety.

Glad you've been following, the inks are done on the next page so it should be up tonight or tomorrow.
