Bush Woman Dreaming

March 17th, 2005

More revealing fan art from bonnieslashfiend. I agree, that Cynthia sure is a compelling character. Check out the details of Cynthia’s bedroom — Mel Gibson poster, crucifix, and a copy of Ann Coulter’s Treason. Very dtwof-esque, indeed.

scene from Invasion

The last couple weeks, Alison’s had me erasing her pencil sketches on the art for the long piece that appears in the back of DTWOF book 11, Invasion of the Dykes to Watch Out For. I use a special eraser that gets rid of the pencil marks but leaves the ink intact.

I’ve gotten a sneak peak at the whole sordid story. Lucky me, right? Just one of the many perks of being a cartoonist’s part-time minion.

Alison hasn’t inked in the dialogue yet, so I’ve only seen the drawings. I thought I’d post one of the panels with a blank speech bubble and invite you to put some words in Mo’s mouth.

I didn’t want to give anything away (and I had to be careful, because there’s a lot to give away), so I picked one of the more innocuous panels. This is Mo, Sparrow, Carlos, Stuart, and JR getting ready for a rally of some sort.

Have fun with it. More to come in the months ahead…

Apparently, bonnieslasher from the DTWOF livejournal community thinks there’s some sexual tension between Ginger, Samia, and the earnestly conservative Cynthia…
