Buying Original Art
Fun Home and Are You My Mother art
I have lots of pages from Fun Home and Are You My Mother? available for sale. The originals don’t look exactly like what you see in the printed books because I worked on separate layers and did the lettering in Photoshop. For each page, there’s a black and white drawing on 11 x 14 Bristol board, and a 9 x 12 sheet of watercolor paper with the ink wash shading on it. In this photo of a page from Fun Home, I’ve also included a print of the way the finished page looks in the book, including the text.
If you buy a page, I’ll give you these three components. And if you like, I can also hand letter the drawing.
The art from Are You My Mother is a little more complicated because it contains a layer of digital color in addition to the ink wash shading. So the line art looks pretty naked without these elements. I’ve come up with a way of printing the color and shading on a layer of acetate that can be floated over the original drawing. This combination looks a lot more like what you see in the book. I will include that printed acetate layer with the art if you want it.

Dykes to Watch Out For art
I also have the original artwork for many DTWOF episodes available. Each strip is drawn on two separate sheets of 11″ x14″ bristol board. Like so:
Below are a few available strips. They’re scans, so they don’t show all the smudges, whited out bits, penciled notes, etc., that are on the actual original boards.
If you don’t see the strip you want here, check this link for a list of available episodes.
If you’re interested in a strip, contact me at Dyke at dykestowatchoutfor.com. The best way to pay is with the PayPal button on this page but checks are fine too. Email me with any other questions you might have about shipping, special inscriptions, etc.
