i think we’re extremely fortunate to have a female online community of fully vaginal, lady-girl cartoonistettes
Some of my best ideas have come from being hopped up on painkiller period meds and angry hormones. Sometimes I don't know how men write WITHOUT them.
The last panel was a bit over my head until I remembered what "bristol board" was. Somehow this knowledge transformed the most nonsensical panel into my favorite panel.
My boobs does all the time! Thumbs up.
My boobs does often get in the way, though I'm neither a lady nor a cartoonist.
"fully vaginal, lady-girl cartoonistette"? i gotta work this onto my business cards
Micron of course, as they are acid-free and archival. (I also read that as "Zebra Penis" at first, oof)
On the contrary. Boobs are the best pillows for those longs hours of drawing.
I accidentally asked a female cartoonist questions about her genitals twice, now I'm…
Facing sexual harassment charges.
The only one missing was "So, do you ever draw with your vagina?"
How can you do inking? I'm often too afraid that color won't be able to reclaim the finer detailing of the pencil work. (insert amusing sexist non-sequitur because i can't think of one on the fly.)
i think they prefer the term cartoonistrices
(the chainsawsuit comments section is the last place kris would expect me to plagiarize his tweet me harder jokes)
The only problem with this comic is the insinuation that the popped-collar fratboy subculture has any responsiblity for the harassment of female cartoonists (or female participants in geek culture in general). I love hating on fratboys as much as the next nerd, but at some point we have to own up to the fact that this particular ailment belongs to us. There are a bunch of creeps in our midst, dudes.
may i direct your attention to panel 3?
glasses == NERD.
and you can verify that i'm qualified to judge this matter because i used TWO equal signs, bulletproof nerd cred.
I used two equals signs. Now I'm…
Two Boolean Equality Operators.
Whoa, wait, those are both objects. You should have used glasses.equals(NERD) there.
Cartoonistas! It's obviously cartoonistas!
What would I ask a woman cartoonist? That's easy. I'd ask her to make me a sandwich… and by "sandwich" I mean "sex". And then I want a sandwich. And a beer. And then I'm going to invite my buddies over to watch the game and they all want sandwiches, too. And by "sandwiches" I mean "sex".
I can't… I can't name a female cartoonist…
Oh wait I've got one, Katie Tiedrich. Phew, I was panicked for a second there.
Okay, you need to start reading Octopus Pie, Skin Horse, Hark! A Vagrant, and Girls With Slingshots. Right now. Come back when you're done and I'll have more for ya. And read the full archive of Narbonic while you're at it.
also ninjabi, DAR, Bucko, Misfile, machine flower…
Don't forget Anders loves Maria. And So Far Apart, now that I'm at it.
Adding to the list Templar Arizona (yes spike's a lady-dude), Tiny Kitty Teeth, Johnny Wander, Weregeek…
Not to forget Junior Scientist Power Hour!
Unsounded. READ NAOW.
Combine this with the occasional congoer: "Here's my 8 page mini comic on graph paper. You should bone me cause I'm a cartoonist now."
That was hilarious!
americans don't run around asking to see women's "chicagos"
"Bristol City" -> Titty.
So americans should run around asking to see women's Atlantics.
NO, dont do that.
they should though
XD Ahahaaha, Internet misoginy…
i follow leigh alexander's formspring and basically the questions she answers seem to be these, and i shudder to think that's probably only just a representative sample
I don't know what happened to Wade Kleitzer since 2008, but hanging out with the douchebags in the first two panels represents a new low for him.
I remember a tweet about an interview that said something like, "Where do you find the most adversity about being a female cartoonist?" "Interview questions, mostly".
So does that make Bristol, England the "tit capital" of the world? Might be good for tourism…
I go to Bristol a lot. Trust me, it's full of tits…
i like the tags
When I was a wee tyke I referred to them as "breastles". Which sounds a lot like Bristols.
I've been a fan of lady-girl cartoonistettes since Jagged Little Pill, but her new album Fully Vaginal is really doing it for me. Can't wait to hear the first single off the new album, thanks for getting the word out Kris.

It's true! Inking takes a lot of time and destroys detail. It's a tradition which comes from back when there was no way of reproducing finer work like pencils for a mass audience.
