corey-45 asked: Regarding Boxers and Saints: how would you have written the story? What would you have done differently from what Yang did?

DO you think the “Saints” volume should have been written by a woman writer, preferably a CHinese or CHinese-American one?

I would have not killed off every woman for the sake of the male character’s development. I would not have skewed Joan of Arc’s character and her development the way he did, especially towards the end when she was about to be burned at the stake. 

see I’m glad that the books were written. I’m glad Gene Yang took the time to explore and tell a story about a relatively unknown and unacknowledged period of world history in the West and in America and to explore the complicated implications of Christian conversion. 

it’s not that I’m against men writing women. I’m against women being turned into pawns for male character development, especially in books, like “Saints”, where the narrative is supposed to be centered ON THE WOMAN.

Travel Comic: The Traveling Witch’s Handbook

-Things you need for a fabulous life on the road.

I never posted this comic I did for my zine collaboration with Wendy Xu (@angrygirlcomics) and Stevie Wilson (@sw_inku)—it is part of a zine we made called ‘Modern Magic,’ exploring fashion as a form of magic that transforms & empowers individuals. Modern Magic has been to MoCCa 2014 & Philly Feminist Zine Fest, and coming to Locust Moon Festival in October, aaand possibly SPX which is very soon!

taking a poll— would anyone be interested in buying a copy of my travel journal as a small printed book, if I sold it for maybe $5-7 apiece?

Commissions Back Open!

angrygirlcomics:

Hi folks,

I’m looking for a new day job (neither part time ended up working out for me, sadly). While I’m searching, I would love to be able to raise about $1000 for rent and living expenses within the next month so I don’t have to freak out as much about my rapidly depleting bank account. If you ever wanted a commission, now is the time more than ever! I am also available to work on comics projects as a penciler or an inker. Please let me know if you want to hire me on and we can discuss page rates as well. 

Here’s how it works:

You send me an email (angrygirlcomics@gmail.com), describing to me exactly what you want in as much detail as possible. Descriptions are great, reference pics are even better! Please be detailed but also concise— I’d love to hear your stories about your characters, but if they have a scar that is covered by clothing and will not show up in the illustration, that’s probably not the best thing to include in a character description. 

I send you back a quote, depending on how detailed your character is or how elaborate the background is I may end up charging more. Once we have agreed on that, I’ll get to work. It usually takes me 1-2 weeks when I’m not busy to finish a commission, but trust me, I will definitely let you know if life things come up and get in the way. But if you have a deadline, PLEASE let me know ASAP so I can pencil you in accordingly! I do ask for a week minimum to do it though, longer if it is an elaborate piece—otherwise there is an additional “rush” charge of $25-$50, depending on how detailed the piece is. 

Once I finish your commission, I will send you a low-res thumbnail of it as proof that I have done it along with my paypal address. Upon receipt of payment I will email you the full, high-res version. 

If you are requesting a traditional pen-and-ink piece: I can ship the originals to you! If you would like it shipped to you (I can only do North America atm, unfortunately) please let me know and I will get you a quote on the shipping costs depending on when you would like it to arrive, insurance in case it gets lost etc. 

Single-character illustrations start at $20. Flat color starts at $10 extra. If there is background included, it starts at $5 for a basic textured background. 

Fanart Commissions:

My fandoms are: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Pacific Rim, Cardcaptor Sakura, Puella Magi Magica Madoka, Sailor Moon. Please feel free to ask about other fandoms as these are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head!
