Here is the cover for Issue #2 (sans text) which comes out next month!

toasticles said: Hey uhhhh how can I buy teen dog? It looks real cool.
you can buy it where all good comic books are sold or online from the boom store! Hit up your local copy and ask the fine sales person about it, i’m sure they’ll be happy to help! 
lauriesafari said: I’m always curious about daily work routines. How do you structure your day when working on comics? Also, was it stressful working to get Teen Dog out on a deadline? Or were you like, “I’m a time-management maniac!”?
I don’t think i’m a time-management maniac because i am procrastinating hardcore right now by answering these asks BUT i actually kinda like having deadlines to work to. It gives me something solid to work towards i guess, even if i do procrastinate (i think everyone procrastinates though so idk) i’m usually pretty good about staying on task. I should probably make an actual schedule though because at the moment i pretty much get up in the morning then work solidly until really late at night OR i just work all night and mess up my sleep patterns. I don’t really find deadlines stress me out all that much though, i just keep on keeping on until i get everything done! 

whatjamesdrawws said: Your work is so damn lovely and colourful and my eyes are going through a pastel explosion of loveliness!!!!! Do you ever do commissions??? And do you watch steven universe?? that last drawing you posted made me think of gemsonas :D
Thank you! I do sometimes do commissions but i’m not at the moment while i’m making Teen Dog full time, anything i draw outside of that is usually just for myself and for fun! I’ll probably get back into doing them next year sometime though maybe. As for Steven Universe, i love it, it’s great and the people working on it are super passionate about it which really shines through. It’s probably one of my fav shows at the moment and i’m super happy that there are so many more episodes still to come. Maybe i will retroactively make that self portrait i posted my gemsona, i don’t know what stone i would be… It’s pink though so maybe i would be that pink sugar crystal stuff that they make fairy floss out of. pink sugar crystal is kind of a cumbersome name so it’s perfect! 

Anon Pal #1 said: I love the Galactus illustration! Is there any way I can buy a print from you?
If you live in Australia maybe but it’s so expensive shipping prints overseas from here if i don’t want them to get all bent out of shape so i usually avoid it! If you’re super keen you can email me about it and maybe we could work something out. Glad you like it though! 

Anon Pal #2 said Hi! Name two things you like about yourself, then pass this on to the first ten people you see on your dash. #TeamSelfEsteem
I like that i am currently stuck in the void and that i remembered to eat lunch today (a salad!). Hey, ten people. what 2 things do you like about yourselves?! #teamcommanderkeen. 

Anon Pal #3 Have you ever drawn Teen Dog as a human? Or cat? I think that would be fun to see!
Not yet! Would Teen dog as a human would just be Teen Teen? Teen dog as a cat would obviously be Teen Cat and i mean in a world where there are teenage dogs it would make sense that there are teenage cats, right? 

wyattthenerd said: Would you want to see Beta Ray Bill show up in a Marvel movie?
I want Beta Ray Bill to have his own movie because he’s the best there is, in my mind it would just be him and Sif adventuring around the galaxy together! Sadly i don’t think a Beta Ray Bill standalone movie is really in the pipeline but there is a big part of me that hopes he shows up in Thor 3 at some point. I think his relationship with Thor is an interesting one especially with Loki in the mix. However if the rumours are true they are going with the Ragnarok title so maybe he won’t show up at all which will be sad because he’s a great character! Also you didn’t ask but i’d cast matt mcconaughey to play him because i think his southern as helllll accent would bring a hilarious dimension to the character. I’m only half joking. 

Anon Pal #4 what comics do you want to see turned into films/tv series! ideally name 2 mainstream comics and 2 indie comics B-)
She-Hulk should be a TV show, it’s a no brainer! It would be an Ally Mcbeal/Boston Legal type law show starring Abbi Jacobson from broad City (because she hulked out in the last episode and it was very organic and real and i totally bought her as she-hulk in that moment). I think at this point marvel could try mixing with the format a bit and a she-hulk tv show would be a change of pace from all the other superhero tv shows that are popping up at the moment.
I bet Lumberjanes would make a good movie as well, think of it as like a modern goonies or something but with badass girls at a camp full of ~mysteries~ I’d watch the heck out of that movie forrrrr sure.
a Cucumber Quest animated tv show OR movie with gigi’s illustrations would look like a painting come to life, plus the story is great and fun so i think that would be dope. I’m leaning towards tv show because i think it would have to sacrifice too much story if it was going to be a movie. Anyways either way that would be cool i think.
Finally I think they should make a garfield movie because they have NEVER made one before (no never!), it could star bill murray because his voice is perfect for garfield but it should be directed by someone who isn’t terrible for sure. ALSO get a real cat to play garf, no cgi. Or maybe get whoever did the work on rocket raccoon because his design was tight. 


cool thanks for the Q’s everyone! see you next time!
