And the conversation goes something like this:
Alvin (yeah, all grown up): “What are you supposed to be?”
Annie: “I’m a gorgon, you know – Medusa- What are you?”
Alvin: “Ah, um, I dunno – an army dude?”
Annie: “An army dude…because of cammo pants? Why didn’t you even try?”
Levi: “Hair’s too long, kid.”
Annie: “It’s not just that – not that you’re any better. I mean, you really went all out with that makeup.”
Levi: “Thank you!”
Annie: “I was being sarcastic.”
Alvin: “Are those snakes real?”
Annie: “Of course not.”
Alvin: “I think one just hissed at me.”
Okay, so I made a commercial for Levi Levi Chapter One. And I am only hesitant and a little embarrassed because I don’t hear my recorded voice very often.
I am also planning on making a commercial for Chronicles of Plastic Deer
, because that’s what people do now a days–make commercials for books and all. And because no one has read it yet and it’s my responsibility as the writer and web master to advertize. And because I had all these drawings of the characters and nothing to do with them…
And guess what is now for sale on my shop? Come on! Do you need me to spell it out for you? Levi Levi Chapter One: The Long Assignment and the Wyvern School for Girls Yearbook 1978 are now available for purchase in the LeEMS store.
Hello lovely people. Again, I am pushing my deadline. A new page of Levi Levi will be up by tonight. I had stalled on a what’s-gonna-happen-next, but I know now and I know how, so I’m hoping to amass some pages for regularly scheduled posting where I am not inking and scanning Thursday night (like I will tonight).
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, Levi Levi chapter one and the Monster girls zine shipped from the printer! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that since its a Florida to Florida it will be a quick delivery, but it probably will be the standard time of any shipment. sigh.
Are you excited? Edited for printing pages of the Wyvern School for Girls 1978 Year book and Levi Levi (1) the Long Assignment are at the printers. Levi Levi took a lot more work than I thought, and I have now permanently memorized the fonts: Showcard Gothic, Pupcat, and Free Script.
I should be writing font selection down whenever I create a cover or look for a comic but I always forget.
Anyway! once I get the volumes in the mail (Aug 19, if I didn’t mess up editing the pages), they will be available for purchase in my Etsy store (it’s so terribly empty right now; I’ll link the store on the main navigation once I stock it).
I said more to come, and here it is. Super side-kick Annie.
Remember how I said I’d been watching a lot of superhero movies? Of, course you do, it was just a couple days ago! So, of course, I’ve been drawing super heroes. And I’ve been drawing my own characters as super heroes. Here are some.
I imagined that if Levi Levi were a super hero he would be kind of like Captain America. If Clement and Rosalie Skitt were super heroes, they would be from an alternate time line where, instead of creating a time machine, they figured out a way to augment their own bodies with super powers. Crazy science kids, you gotta love ’em.
More to come…
I promise, Levi Levi and the Time Machine will be back to posting every Thursday very very soon. I am almost doing only normal things everyday at home instead of unpacking, hanging pictures, and tripping over the tool box. In the meantime, I give you some cover art.
So,…how’re you doin’?
I am currently preparing the first chapter of Levi Levi: Anything You Need for Hire for printing. That’s right. There will be, out there in the world, physical copies of Levi Levi comic for sale (in my Etsy shop). Can you dig it?
While thinking about this printing Levi Levi thing I realized that I have a few 1st chapters and collections that would make a good printing themselves. I’ll be printing up the Monster Girl’s School zine too. Richard of DoomedMoviethon thinks I am underestimating demand since I got a quote for only 15 of these…I could always get more printed if they go quick.
Hey, I found these pics of Levi and Annie from my unfortunate scan batch that I am too lazy to correct rather than put more work into them to get a different look entirely. Been watching a lot of Sherlock Holmes stories of all sorts.
All right kiddies. Levi Levi and the Time Machine will be posting on the Bean on Thursdays starting tomorrow. It’s got bold new styling. It’s got a fantabulous story. It tests the boundaries of time and space and natural aging. It’s got back story. And, it’s got a cameo by my friend Micah.
And thus ends the long assignment, or kinda sorta the first chapter of Levi Levi. Are you ready for that backstory I promised you? Where Levi meets Annie? Well, it’s coming up, and it will be running through the Webcomic facilitated part of the blog. Keep your eyes open for ‘Levi Levi and the Time Machine.’ You can still read through all of Levi Levi from the beginning: .
