I’ll be debuting the Avenging Uterus animation this Saturday at Backfence PDX’s benefit for the IPRC along with a story from my sordid past. Backfence is live storytelling event run by Frayn Masters (voice of the Avenging Uterus) and the theme of the evening is “The Graphic Details,” featuring three storytellers who dabble in comics. For those of you not in the Portland area, worry not! The Avenging Uterus animation will be online next week, but you’ll have to make it down to Backfence to hear my story, which will not be made available to the internet in order to preserve my reputation as an upstanding citizen and professional drawing person.

Here’s a look at the originals for the Avenging Uterus/Pussy Riot comic from this week as well as another uterus-related comic from a few months ago.

If you’d like either of them, shoot me an email to arrange shipping.
