Several years ago KMM asked me to take a stab at designing a tattoo for Barrons the alpha male hero of her Fever Series. The double red and black dragon tat was a hit, Karen and the fans loved it. Fans loved it so much they’ve gotten it inked on their bodies. This graphic is an homage to that tattoo.
This graphic is inspired by Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series. I decided to re-work the logo I designed for the character Ryo awhile back. As you read this I am in New Orleans with friends. We will eventually be joined by a The Moning Maniacs in town to celebrate Karen Marie Moning’s new book “ICED”. All of us in one place at the same time is a dangerous thing. Hide your booze, lock your men folk away… the Moning Maniacs are coming to town ! If I’m not back in time for the presidential election please send bail money.
As I was drawing a voodoo doll for a friend she commented that if anyone were to make a voodoo doll of me there was no doubt in her mind that my doll would make a pin cushion out of my creator before they even got to stick a pin into the doll. The thought of that cracked me up and was the inspiration for this graphic.
I have a tendency to stick up for others and because of this have developed a reputation as a bad ass among friends. I don’t think of myself as a bad ass just as someone who does what she feels is right and if I have to break your jaw in the pursuit of doing what is right well then so be it. I was really lucky as a kid to attend schools that embraced what was different so I never experienced bullying. Believe me if ever there was a character ripe for bullying that would have been me.
October is National Anti-Bullying Month and Just My Opinion is hosting a fantastic series of authors against bullying posts. My friend CJ Roberts contributed a fantastic piece about her personal experiences with Dick Faces aka Bullies Check it out.
As soon as I’d put the finishing touches on this I showed it to my friend Bree, ” eeeheheheheeeeewww. awesome art but eeew ” she said. I then went on to tell her that having completed Lady Fingaz my obsession with zombies was now officially over…she replied, ” uh huh”. I guess she doesn’t believe me. Chick has zombie issues.
