The Comics and Times of Maddy

Or something to that effect
Here is a little illo (I love the word “illo”) that I did for a campus publication, The Grail, of  the Reed snowball. I based it on a photo I found on wbrz.com. For the very few people in the world who don’t know, some Reed students made a very impressive snowball, lost control of it, and watched helplessly as it careened into a dorm building. No one was injured except for the building, which was hurt rather badly. Then it made the news in Japan. Then I drew a picture of it.

So I was seeing Girl Fry (they are cool and you should like them - http://www.girlfry.com/) at The Smell in L.A., and between sets, a friend and I were hanging out at the back browsing the zines (as you do), and this skinny little dude got up from nowhere and just started dancing to the music coming in over the speakers. He was pretty good. And then this girl got up and joined him, and they just kept dancing like they were having the most marvelous time. It was adorable. We couldn’t tell if there were friends or strangers or came there as a couple or what, but I really love people sometimes. I did a quick little gesture sketch of them, and then when I got home it evolved into a drawing and here it is.

Well, well, well, followers. Have I got a backlog of comics for you. Sorry about the lack of posts - things have been busier than they have any right to be.
Here’s an assignment I did forever ago (like, back in 2013 or something) for the IPRC comics program. We were supposed to make a how-to comic, which I suppose I technically did. 
I will try to post more things when I get the chance. We will see how that works out.

Here’s a little journal comic I did a few days ago, after I went to yoga with my mother and two of my sisters. It is more or less true, except for I am not a kitty.
Edit: Also, I do not own Pusheen the cat, to the surprise of no one.

Hello, friends! This is the avatar/banner thing for my webcomic. Yup! It has a title and everything.
I’m still quite a ways away from posting comic pages (this whole Internet thing is a lot harder than I thought oh god I need help), but I’m working on it. More on this story as it develops.

Here is a warm-up watercolor I did of two of my very favorite people, Aaron and Andrew. It is based on a photo that was taken on a lovely Renn Fayre day. I love and miss these two ever so much.

Here is a diary comic I made for my comics class! This totally happens all the time.

Oh, hi tumblr. Fancy meeting you here. On the Internet.
So, instead of sulking like I usually do when I’m on holiday, I’ve decided to set the perhaps unrealistic but not impossible goal of spending 100 hours working on art and comics (specifically that webcomic I keep talking about) before break ends. You probably can’t tell from the tiny blurry image of the chart I made, but I have seven so far. So, you know, forward to glory and all that.

So, here’s a comic I made for the Quest. It won’t be printed in the Quest this week because someone (not me, for once) made a mistake. But here it is on the Internet. Rani Lakshmibai, who is crazy awesome, has some pretty interesting Boudica parallels going on. Sort of odd, as Prince Albert dedicated a statue of Boudica to Queen Victoria (who was kind of in power when the 1857 rebellion was going on) in 1905. Silly history.
