Team Trash

I sit here just having finished the major inking on the first volume of Trish Trash: Rollergirl of Mars, a task I could not have completed without a teeming studio full of assistants and interns. I salute you, Team Trash! Check out our new Trish Trash Tumblr, rollerderby + mars, featuring all the cool derby photos and science geekery we’re using to create this book (and of course sketches and work in progress).

Team Trash at work. Lydia and I are on the other end of the room.

Lydia Roberts AKA lydiarobotica, on layouts, world design, and backgrounds.

Li-Or Zaltzman AKA @liorca on script wrangling, paper cutting, layout, scanning, and tracing.

Wyeth Yates AKA…um…Wyeth Yates… on panel borders, scanning, sound effects, visors, and signage.

And me of course. I don’t know what I’m doing. (in this picture, inking figures).

    Dear Jess, Please feed your staff more. That Wyeth kid may do killer visors and signage, but he so skinny! All the best, chip

    Thanks for pointing that out, Chip. You should have seen the mountain of risotto we fed him today!

    Hi Jessica,
    I tried to access the TrishTrash tumblr site but access is denied? 🙁

    Thanks for pointing that out–fixed, I hope. Here it is again.
