Virginia is a People Name: Volume TWO!!



Behold the cover of my brand new collection of comics, which features three never-before-seen drawings! The cover is also an unpublished cartoon called “Flap Your Wingz!” and was inspired by Kirstie Alley. It is hand colored and hand sewn with turquoise thread. Drawn and assembled with love and care!

The Secretary Suit

The Secretary Suit. For the discerning administrative mercenary.

I recently started a part-time/temp job in which I am overhauling a company’s filing system. I don’t have a real office space, outside of the filing cabinet where I lock up my purse, so I carry all my supplies in a little plastic tub as I roam around the office. In my first week, I must have gotten a thousand tiny paper cuts and broke most of my nails. Thus, the Secretary Suit was born. It has bandoliers loaded with paperclips and binder clips; a utility belt sporting pens, labels and post-its; a Stapletron 10,000 holstered and at the ready; and state of the art filing gloves.

Enrich page 2

The action continues as we join the Enrich team on their latest assignment! We get a peek at the copper/silver ionization cannons they use to take on Lee Ginnella and his goons. If you don’t recognize him, Erik is the fellow with the glasses. He has also served as my consultant for this project, which has been helpful. The other man is Aaron, who is a big supporter of shieldsink and the reason I get to draw these pages. So, thanks, guys!!

Enrich page 1

This is the first in a series of comic book pages I am making for a Pittsburgh company called Enrich. They work in industrial water purification (to prevent Legionnaires disease) and they are awesome. The comic will follow the Enrich team (featuring my own personal hero and comic counterpart Erik) as they fight Lee Ginnella, a giant, evil Legionnella bent on world domination.

Thunder Chuck

This is my 8th grade science teacher and this really is how he decided to teach us about friction. I had him for homeroom and science. He would greet the class each day with some flexing and moaning, and was always very helpful…if you were a girl. He wore tight velvet shirts, even tighter pants, and kept his room so cold you could constantly see his nipples. So creepy was he that we nicknamed him Thunder Chuck, which we assumed was his porn name back in the 70’s. If you got a good test score or helped clean up the lab in the afternoon homeroom period, he would reward you with a Boby Pop (don’t worry, it was candy). Better still, I have proof of his existence:
