OMG YOU GUYS!!! Thank you to everyone who backed this and spread the word!!! I’m totally blown away by how amazing and supportive everyone has been. And I’m so honored to be a part of this. This is so cool!!! And honestly this is a huge triumph not b/c of the $ but bc this shows how badly women-positive stories in comics are needed & wanted!!!

I made this button in the shape of a V for victory, for courage and for VALOR!


And if you missed out on this amazing kickstarter, the amazing organizers have a backer-kit link up!!! GET IT HERE

Annie said it all, and with an animated dragon to boot! THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!!

I just got back from dinner with a bunch of the Toronto comics folks to the wonderful news that our kickstarter had not only funded succesfully, but nearly sextupled its goal. I’m so grateful and honoured by your faith in us, Dear Readers. I’ll be working hard to make sure this book is as beautiful as I can.

WE ARE IN THE FINAL DAYS OF THE VALOR ANTHOLOGY KICKSTARTER!

It’s been an intense ride! We met all our stretch goals, adding an comic extra story, prose, and the option of selecting a hardcover edition of the book (to do so, simply add 10$ to your pledge for every copy of the book you have ordered) to our initial book. Wowza!

I’m seeing the stories everyone is working on and I can guarantee Valor’s goal of telling awesome fairy tales featuring courageous female character is met, double-met, triple-met. This book is going to be amazing and I want to thank EVERYONE who is working on it or supporting it financially and morally. 

Check out the kickstarter!

DEAR READERS!

We are at the end of the Valor kickstarter! This is your last chance to be part of funding this gorgeous book, featuring not just myself, but a plethora of astounding artists and genuinely lovely people (I should know, I was out all night singing karaoke with a bunch of them last night!). It’s going to be a beautiful collection, with a brand-new 15 page full-colour story from me, and the chance to score some sweet loot!

If you’re a BATB reader who has donated to the kickstarter, weigh in in the replies! Maybe a little bonus art will appear magically on the tumblr…!

Hey All! Our Toronto studio needs your help! We have a whopping FOUR available spaces for September (we’re adding new desks!) and we need to fill ‘em with delightful artists so we can pay our rent and keep making comics! We’re a friendly and supportive work environment and (super bonus!) we have the lowest studio rent in the city.

What are the perks, you may ask? We have a kitchenette, a cute fire escape garden, all the wi-fi you can eat, and an amazingly stocked tea cupboard. We’re close to art supply stores, print shops, great restaurants and a free pool/gym, and we have a streetcar stop right out front. The studio has a security system to protect your stuff, and AC for the hot summer months. Also, a group of helpful, friendly cartoonist ladies including Xaviere Daumarie (Bitten, Museum Horribilium, a bunch of manga translations) Meaghan Carter (Take Off, Valor), Megan Kearney (Beauty and The Beast, Valor) and Ally Rom Colthoff (Chirault, and a bunch of TV shows).

SO! If you’ve been working from home and it’s getting lonely, if you’re working P/T and ready to take your art more seriously, or if you’re a crafter/seamstress/writer/painter/artist in need of a dedicated workspace, drop me a message at kearneymeg@gmail.com or here on tumblr! <3

Seriously, it’s a great workplace and some of the nicest people I’ve ever met. If you’re in Toronto, you wanna work here.

Hey again! We now have two rental spaces left available at Comic Book Embassy.  We just brought two TV writers on board, and we’ve got two remaining spaces for September! PM me before they’re gone.

Oh wow, we’re down to one available workspace! We just signed the sweetest technical illustrator. That’s right — ONE rental is left at Comic Book Embassy for September!

WIP for a pinup that is available as a reward on the Brok Windsor kickstarter! Hope Nicholson, who was part of the team that put together the Nelvana of the Northern Lights collection, is working on archiving another little-known Canadian superhero, the seven-foot, rat-fighting, bear-punching, PHD-holding, canoe-paddlin’ beefcake Brok Windsor, and his sidekicks Starra and Torgon.  

This is going to be an 11x17 ink and watercolour piece when it’s done. If you want to talk about commissions, drop me a line via my website!
