No inktober drawing today! I’ll do a double tomorrow.

I lied, I did a bunch of physical work yesterday and it beat me up a lot more than I thought. I’ve tried to draw tonight and just nothing is working. I’ll have to catch up in a day or two.

Inktober Day 3! Whenever Halloween season comes around I am reminded of my HERD kids - the only bit of the story I have solidified for them is the halloween adventure where they get to disguise their unusual anatomy as costumes and blend in like they never get to in normal daily life. In need of money, they find work at a hay maze/haunted house to scare paying customers, and grapple with monster metaphors. And solve a mystery maybe.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

Here’s the last of what qualifies as “Call Me Kate”. A couple of these were uploaded online, but some of them never made it up. 

The last one features an alter ego of mine who appeared in my sketchbooks a bit as someone who liked to speak very bluntly about my insecurities and give me reality checks. She meant well. She also never wore clothes and had dark short hair. 

She was directly inspired by another webcomic, one that had an evil version of himself that fed on and encouraged his insecurities. Can’t remember for the life of me who that was. He had brown hair and it wasn’t Tom Preston, that’s all I know. My alter ego turned out to be a bit more of a neutral presence, simply someone to talk to and point out things I already knew but that needed repeating.

I didn’t have a lot of friends when I was 19. Cut me some slack. I also didn’t know how to handle issues such as someone wanting to be my girlfriend. What do you mean quoting the Throw It On The Ground music video is inappropriate?

also i was not the sad and sorry heartbreaker i thought i was lol who the hell were those hearts on the ground supposed to represent anyway internet boys with crushes on me i guess LOL call me kate old art kudos to Emily to putting up with me during this period of my life
