Find out how my FAVORITE comic artist, Steven Weissman, uniquely relates (or doesn't) to politics in his new collection of comics, Barack Hussein Obama. A delightful departure for our dear friend "Ribs."

"Two-Headed Boy"
by Neutral Milk Hotel

Two-headed boy
All floating in glass
The sun it is past
Now it's blacker than black
I can hear as you tap on your jar
I am listening to hear where you are
I am listening to hear where you are

Two-headed boy
Put on Sunday shoes
And dance round the room to accordion keys
With the needle that sings in your heart
Catching signals that sound in the dark
Catching signals that sound in the dark
We will take off our clothes
And they'll be placing fingers through the notches in your spine
And when all is breaking everything that you could keep inside
Now your eyes ain't moving now
They just lay there in their climb

Two-headed boy
With pulleys and weights
Creating a radio played just for two
In the parlor with a moon across her face
And through the music he sweetly displays
Silver speakers that sparkle all day
Made for his lover who's floating and choking with her hands across her face
And in the dark we will take off our clothes
And they'll be placing fingers through the notches in your spine
And when all is breaking everything that you could keep inside
Now your eyes ain't moving now
They just lay there in their climb

Two-headed boy
There's no reason to grieve
The world that you need is wrapped in gold silver sleeves
Left beneath Christmas trees in the snow
I will take you and leave you alone
Watching spirals of white softly flow
Over your eyelids and all you did
Will wait until the point when you let go

My new animated web series, Pubertina, launches in no more than 35 hours.  I am excited, pleased, and nervous to share it with you.  I am proud to have created a character that has already touch teen girls' and boys' lives via Twitter before the show has launched.  I hope the show will resonate with people as much as she has.  Wednesday's episode (the premiere) is about obsession, pop-stars and girl-fandom.  I hope you'll enjoy.  In the meantime, here are some self-portraits done by Pubertina herself ;)

Pubertina, the Animated Web Series!


The project I've been working on since December, an animated web series based on my first-year-film character, Pubertina, was finally announced last week in the LA Times.  And then here on Cartoon Brew.

I write it, storyboard it, cut the radioplay and animatics, do the voice of Pubertina (and other characters), background art, and other miscellaneous stuff.  My awesome friend Josh Herron animates the show, and my other awesome friend, Paul Fraser, acts as composer and sound designer.  I compose some of the songs, he others, and sometimes we collaborate on songs.  My dear friend Midge Lipschitz plays Pubes' best friend Debs, and also adds a lot to the series.  Other wonderful friends have also contributed, namely Nico Colaleo.  Ashish Dha helped me loads as voice-recording engineer.  I'll be sure to mention credits as episodes "air."

We're still in production, but the series launches April 30th on a SMOSH associated, original YouTube channel Shut Up! Cartoons.  17 other animated series will also slowly start airing on the same channel.  Right now you can check out a trailer with some short clips from Pubertina.

I've never been so proud of anything in my life, and have had so much fun writing and working on this series.

The show features Pubertina as the only girl in her fifth grade class going through puberty.  She is weird and dramatic.  Her prepubescent best friend Debs acts as her guide on this journey; highly enthusiastic, headstrong, and sometimes a harsh critic, but ever-adoring of Pubertina.  Other characters include Pubertina's crush Andrew, Pubertina's stuffed dog Ruff-Ruff, and her deadpan teenage cousin Xstina.

The show also features original songs and music written by me and Paul Fraser.

Please check it out, and follow it, because it just gets better and better (IMO). 

To help spread the word, you can "like" the channel on Facebook, and follow it on twitter.

More posts to come!

Your pal,
Emily

Today I got to draw a dog.

He was cute.

Hands

A wise monk once said to me, "Keep drawing hands and one day you'll be able to draw hands."
