Starting this upcoming MONDAY 2/24, I’ll be starting my webcomic, About Merpeople!
Look for updates on Mondays and Wednesdays! Expect to see more comics about Floundermaid, Mermit Crab, the pregnant Seahorsemen, etc., and a slew of other brand new merfolk!!
(Also, I’ve reposted all of the previous comics I’ve done so you can flip through them here)
Please spread the word!! Thank you so much!!
Hello all!!! Thanks so much for all of the positive responses I got to some of the merpeople comics I started posting back in December. I’m really grateful for all of the kind and encouraging messages I’ve received from you guys over the past couple of months.
I want to keep on making merpeople comics on a regular basis, and that their new home will be at aboutmerpeople.tumblr.com. I will be updating this twice a week, and I’m really excited about some of the new comics, new characters, and longer storylines I’ll be exploring in the near future :)
If you like my merpeople comics, PLEASE SHARE/spread the word!! And expect a new comic on Monday!!
Thanks so much!!!
P.S. I had picked out today as the date to make this announcement in advance, and I found out this morning that today’s Sketch Dailies topic is actually Mermaids as well! This was purely coincidental, but it’s exciting for me because that means twitter, tumblr, instagram, etc. will be full of dozens of artists’ mermaid drawings and that makes me incredibly happy :) If you guys aren’t following Sketch Dailies, you should check it out because it’s pretty neat!
i am so all about Megan’s Merpeople Comics…..
I wish I could show this to my high school teacher, Jon Morris, who once argued with me that there was less obesity in Asia because their chopsticks forced them to eat more slowly (because a “spoon is like a shovel that you barrel more food into your face with”.) I tried to tell him they don’t eat more slowly, they simply eat better food and live a more healthy lifestyle.
OH MY GOD THIS IS A PICTURE OF GOO HARA EATING SUSHI IT DOESNT MEAN ANYTHING
Oh, I know I have it better than a lot of would-be comics buyers, and that’s what worries me. I’ve had it with the self-appointed gatekeepers in comics.
I have had similar experiences in comic shops- the most memorable were these:
A good comic shop is supposed to make you be excited about comics- make you want more and read more and interact with the community.
There are a few shops around that make you feel truly welcome and comfortable and I am lucky that I have one of those here in Portland- Floating World Comics. If you find a gem of a store like that…hold on to it!
This is a neat thing that happened last week!
Check out http://haterfreewednesdays.tumblr.com- they do a good job of pointing out the shops that make you feel welcome!
When I was younger and in college, I thought I was invincible. Sexism? Pfft, that doesn’t exist anymore. We’re beyond discriminating people based on gender, sexual-orientation, or the color of his/her skin.
Turns out shit is still pretty rampant and I’m getting tired of it. I’m relieved when other artists draw out these familiar experiences and I’m glad there are people who truly want to initiate a change.
