While we were putting together the first issue of the magazine version of Glyph we had a bunch of other projects that we were considering for Labor of Love publishing. One of the writers we were working with had self published some comics and was looking for an artist for a graphic novel he’d written. Despite being about stripper lesbian vampires it wasn’t a pure pulp story. He wanted it to be both arty and commercial. I did some sketches of his main characters (showing over the next few days) but they weren’t really what he was looking for. The women weren’t the sort of sexy he was looking for. Just as well I suppose.
I tend to be only vaguely interested in the US standard of sexy in real life. In art I see no reason to try to reproduce a version of sexy that I’m not interested in.
