Welcome to the Mixed Up Journals of Victoria Jane and GB. We are super duper queer best friends and artistic soulmates. We collaborate on comics, (joke?) raps, and in life. Victoria Jane updates on Mondays and GB updates on Wednesdays. Stayed tuned each week while we work our fingers to the bone to try to make you smile.
The wait is over! Episode 1 of LADYPOINTS is here! For our debut episode, we’re happy to feature Mindy Abovitz, drummer and founder/editor-in-chief of Tom Tom Magazine, a print magazine dedicated to women drummers.
Also, congrats to Tom Tom on releasing Issue 14!
Thank you to Mindy for sitting down to talk with us, and thank you to everyone who donated to our Kickstarter and who follow us on social media for helping to make this webseries happen!
This custom illustration was gifted from one cutie to another, as I pretended to be part of the relationship from afar.
I half-jokingly (okay maybe quarter-jokingly) asked the gift giver to send me snapshots of the gift givee’s reaction during the BIG REVEAL, and despite the creepiness involved in that, aforementioned photos were actually the highlight of my day.
If you have a weird doodle idea that you’d like to see through to completion (but lack the skill or will to do so), V and I both take on custom projects. Clearly.
I did this doodle for my buddy Dain’s tour fliers. Boy’s going solo and acoustic for the first time. Check out his tunes at http://daingriffin.bandcamp.com. Also if you’re in the general Phoenix area, I may or may not be playing music at his kick off show next month as well.
Next week Vicky and I want to do two comics interpreting the same phrase, without sharing our ideas. We need suggestions for ideas you’d like to see doodled in both of our styles! For example, the prompt could be something like “killing two birds with one stone,” and Vicky might draw herself going to the bank inside the grocery store, whereas I might draw someone literally murdering two birds with a stone. But don’t do that one because that’s lame and we won’t choose it. TL;DR - Give us a funny phrase or idea to draw. GO. Drop ‘em in our ask box.
