A series of figure drawings for Trish Trash by Jessica Abel

The Kickstarter drawings

It’s not news that I’ve been working on a drawing project that I kickstarted back in November. I proposed this project as a warm up for Trish Trash: Rollergirl of Mars. Shockingly, it ended up competing with that for my time and attention (as you cartoonists out there would have/did predict). I’m not sorry, though. It was crucial preparation for my book, and offered me the opportunity to work on hover-derby costume designs.

Fo those of you who are backers, thank you for your support! This was really an amazing experience of making and re-making connections to good friends and readers. Many people supported the project with the sole intention of supporting me, personally, in my work, and seemed embarrassed that I’d want to send them a thank-you gift. It’s really remarkable how generous people are. By the way, If I sent you clothes, and you feel like taking a picture of yourself wearing the item, I’d love to post it!

HUGE thank yous to:
