Today, Link finished re-shading the pages, and I finished re-drawing some panels and AW YEAH Namesake is pretty much ready to become a file that can be sent to be printed. Yessss. Behold as I share cuddly Elaine and Fred in celebration.

My parents visited Montréal today. They came by the bookstore and picked me up after work. It was pretty fun. We shared chinese food and watched Tangled Ever After. It's pretty fun to be part of a geeky family. Shame I don't see them much!

Today, while cleaning up the youth section, I kept finding these horrible comics for little girls about horses. Like... So many of them. I'm okay with the subject. Let's admit it, horses and unicorns are something that girls will always love. They rock. But I kinda feel like a lot of editors out there put zero effort into these because they figure it's going to sell even if it's crap because it's about a girl's magical adventures with her pet horse. I just want us to get a good comic with this premise. Like... I dunno, a girl set off on a quest in a magical world with only her horse as her awesome BFF. Why does it always have to be bad? Seriously. Someone write me a damn story and I will draw it, this is how tired I am of these awful comics. Good comic about her girl and her BFF horse, please.

What, I need to write more backstory for Victoria and Prince? ;)

My adventures weren't fantastical, but I have plenty of personal stories about growing up around horses.

...or maybe I'll send you more silly doodles about a girl and her hippogryph. It's sort of a horse! :D

You are the coolest, Isa! Go make your horse comic! :)

Hahaha, so girls can read aweome stuff.

Merida is going to be a badass girl with a horse too.

YAY! I love cuddle pictures!

I didn't realize there were a lot of bad horse comics out there (I've seen a lot of bad horse novels; but not comics).
In any case, I fully support someone writing a kick-ass comic about a girl and her horse being awesome together.

Oh, there's a lot of bad novels too, but I don't work in that section of the bookstore. So i've only heard whispered, horrifying stories.

If you make that horse comic, I wanna see it!

I know a novel that could count, "Wild Magic" by Tamora Pierce. It's about a girl who can talk to animals, but after her mother is killed her only friend is her horse. (I might add she went through a phase thinking she was an animal and it was her horse that forced her to remember that she was a human by nipping at her to make her stand on her two legs again.) It's just too bad that her horse isn't a big focus on the other novels.

There should be more good horse stories, if I get a good plot bunny, you'll be the first person I call. XD

Indeed. Guess he was replaced by a random hot dude.

That would be cool! =D Of course we've chatted about how there isn't enough bad ass chick stories out there before *le sigh* :/

Coolly that you and your folks could hang out with you like that :) Tangled Forever After? Is that a sequel?

It's a short Disney released with the 3D version of Beauty and the Beast. Basically, it's Rapunzel's wedding.

Aw! I want to see that! *pout*
Isabelle Melançonsecondlina on February 24th, 2012 02:04 am (UTC)
It's on youtube, a bit hard to find, but definitely around. :D
