HELLO, my name is Iris Jay and I've been posting comics online for a little over a decade now. I'm a full-time freelance cartoonist and illustrator, but in my free time I also enjoy cooking, reading and thrift store diving.

My queer cyberpunk webcomic: crossedwires.irisjay.net

My old supernatural religious webcomic that folks still like: epiphany.irisjay.net

My podcast with @itsnero :

for those unfamiliar with solarpunk, it's basically a look into an ideal future where climate change is under control, plants have been allowed to reclaim structures and grow overtop new ones, and solar panels are stuck to everything much in the way gears are slapped on everything steampunk

LB: we're getting to angels in the outfield time with this KS here. please help Nero's pin become a reality!!

MY BONES HURT Show more

This explosion of absurdity can induce panic, unreality, being overwhelmed and desiring control, order, normalcy. Finding the appeal in fascism.

What I want you to do is lean into this though
If all this absurd shit can be true what else can we make true
Clearly the boundaries of what's realistic have collapsed entirely
Nothing is off the table

Tear down the outlines around you. Do shit you never thought was worth it before. Try to change the world in ways you thought were futile. Clearly now is the time

so much more of 2018 than i expected has been me yelling at people "it's OKAY, we don't HAVE to monetize EVERYTHING we create, we can just do SELF-INDULGENT shit because that's what makes this job FUN"

but you know what? if that's our creative credo in this fuck of a year? that's a-ok by me

i can do.... Witty. funny is likely beyond me

please keep in mind i'm a bad person to critique any children's animation in that i 1. don't know how to talk to children and 2. i don't know what humor is, i literally don't know how to be funny, if i've ever been funny at any point as an adult it's probably been an accident

Posted the mostly-finalized pin card backing to the Kickstarter for all backers! Gotta pledge if you wanna see it though. Six days to go! kickstarter.com/projects/itsne

i just figured out a new trick in photoshop all by my lonesome:

1. pick a font, type something
2. create an empty layer above it
3. select font layer, go to layer > type > create work path
4. select that empty layer
5. go to your "work path" panel
6. make sure you have the tool you use for inking selected, then hit the second button from the left on the bottom of the work path panel (just looks like a circle outline)
7. voila! you just saved yourself a ton of time faking a hand-drawn typeface!

I'm on vacation which means I am drinking from this mug.
