Spats for all  
Been working on pages lately, i'm trying to build an efficient buffer for May, when i'll be out and about at conventions and stuff. 

Aside from that, i've been working on costume designs, since most of the characters are getting a new wardrobe in the next chapters. I LOVE designing clothing. It is my favorite thing. Sometimes I wonder why I didn't go to fashion school or something. Designing weapons and clothing is something I love. I could have been a costumer or something *laughs*



I've also been re-watching Futurama while I ink and honestly, Futurama is still one of my favorite shows. I love how it's funny and sad at the same time, I love the characters, I love the silly-retro-futuristic universe....

I wanted to share with you guys a really great post by Gail Simone - an american comic writer - about breaking into the comic world. A lot of these ideas can also be applied to the writing and publishing world in general. She's a great lady. I adore her!

I love the new designs! :) Warrick's looks especially interesting, with a more "modern" look while still retaining some defining aspects of his original attire.

I figue they would need slightly modern-ish wear... considering their future destinations :P

I may not be into fashion, but I can always appreciate new clothing designs! <3

It makes me sad that I didn't avidly follow Futurama! Other than catching a few episodes here and there, I never watched it in its entire run. All I know is Bender is the voice of Jake in Adventure Time, but instead I hear Starfire as Princess Bubblegum. X3

The new outfits are fun. I'm glad Warrick didn't lose the feathery sleeves.


And Gail Simone is indeed awesome. One of the best days of my fangirl life was chatting with her about our bad experiences with shitty sexist reboots of franchises we once loved (hers was Nancy Drew, mine was the-show-that-shall-not-be-named)

Wait, nancy drew was rebooted?

Miss Simone told me that she read some "modernized" Nancy Drew novels a few years back and was....not impressed. According to her, New-Nancy spent a lot of time fretting about fashion and boys and very little time solving mysteries. And she agreed that it is kinda scary how female characterization tends to go BACKWARDS when old stuff gets rebooted nowadays.

kinda like how concepts from the 1900's are apparently too feminist for modern movies *cough cough oz cough cough*
