"Turn left. You monster."
“Oh, you missed your turn. That’s alright. It’s not like I gave you an advanced warning or anything. Oh wait. I did. Three of them.”
“Now I have to recalculate the entire route. Again. By myself.”
“Congratulations. You’ve gotten us so lost even I don’t know where we are.” *slow clap*
I got stuck on this image. Humor-less Carlos appearing helped too, heh.
Phones do seem to work an awful long time over there, don’t they?
a post where I explain with images how foxes are the best thing ever, and how if you disagree you are obviously wrong
When Penny Arcade invited me to talk about sex on their site, I jumped at the chance (And, of course, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to call back “butt virginity" from my Strip Search days)
I think it’s really, really, really important that kids are taught about the emotional & pleasure side of sex, in addition to reproduction. It wasn’t until I was a teen that I learned sex was supposed to feel good for both participants. I grew up believing sex sucked for women. That’s why I’m so fucking obnoxious about sex now. It was a revelation to me that sex could be positive. I’m so vocal about this stuff now as a direct response to the intense sex negativity and slut shaming I was raised with.
I was also super touched by Tycho’s blog post that accompanies my comic: http://penny-arcade.com/news/post/2014/08/01/the-talk-by-erika-moen. He talks about meeting my gang of teenage cartoonist friends and me well over a decade ago at San Diego Comic-Con, while we were finishing up high school and beginning college. This was maybe 2002-2003?
That SDCC when we met the PA guys and a whole ton of our comics heroes, it was a really pivotal turning point in my life. It’s not that I ever had one great big AND NOW I SHALL BECOME A CARTOONIST moment in my life, but instead I’ve had many, many positive and encouraging events that collectively built into the realization that I should stick with this passion that turned into a career. That SDCC was one of those events that helped put me on this path.
It means a lot to me that Tycho still remembers that time too.
