This week, the blog gained a new contributor—Larry Cruz of webcomicoverlook. Yesterday in a post he highlighted leenisabel Pole Dancing Adventures webcomic.
His following analysis of the webcomic really catches one attention:
”As she relates the bruises, cuts and bumps she’s had to endure, she takes some of the glamor out of pole dancing. I mean, it’s not quite so sexy when you know the dancer is beating herself up day in and day out. At the same time, it garners sympathy; they’re not doing this as eye-candy for men. Not solely, anyway They’re doing this for themselves in an activity that’s partly artistic but heavily athletic. You sort of have to be if you’re going to be lifting your body some six feet off the ground.”

Recently did a cover for Conan the Avenger #4! It was neat to get a chance to draw the young “Cloonan Conan.”
Also I think it looks tougher to fight with a tiny knife than a big sword.
