Since I don’t have nice big blocks of time right now, I thought I would work on my lines and stuff with some quick studies (~10 minutes per). Mouthes still really give me a hard time… and hair… and brows. Shit, it’s all hard. Random internet references.
Happy Face Study -
New Short – Lara Pressed -
Please forgive the similarity between this short and my previous Lara Croft story. This is actually closer to what I intended the other one to be, both visually and for plot (such as it is). That’s what happens when real life gets a bit too intense and your free time gets blown into a thousand five-minute pieces. My editing process for even these few pages was insane. I don’t think there’s a single paragraph in the whole short that didn’t get rewritten partially at least twice, and on multiple kinds of devices (yes, I sometimes write on my tablet). Ah well. It was fun, and that’s all that really matters. I had a good time with the tentacles in the art. I was trying to get them to feel more ‘beefy’. I’m mildly satisfied with the result. I’ve been trying to get my creatures to be less ‘organic’. Don’t get me wrong, I like organic (sexy-yum!), but an organic creature is a little like those mangas where the tentacles come in from nowhere and look like garden hoses. It’s got no plot, man… Anyway, enjoy.
Dryad’s Dream to be made into a podcast series! -
New art – Lara in Trouble – Masked Evil -
The tomb raider is having a bad day… Or a good day, depending. This image started as nothing more than me playing around with new ways to draw organic tentacles very quickly in Photoshop. Lara is my “go to” gal for mostly plot-less tentacle ideas, but you can’t really draw something like this without your mind (and your hands) wandering into happy land, so be sure to check out the mini-story that goes with this.
Field Guide: Catcher Vines -
This project started with me just wanting to do a quick illustration for the short *Millie’s Rest, *but in typical Marjorie style – it snowballed out of control almost at once. I didn’t intend it as a “guide”, but the illustrations lent themselves to that genre nicely, so I just went with it. I’m rather pleased with the result, and it was ridiculously fun to create. I was definitely in need of a good distraction… [X] [Field Guide]
New Short – Millie’s Rest -
There’s a huge amount of really horrendous shit happening in my life right now, but despite all that, this short sort of burbled to the surface and so I put it to ‘paper’ as it were. It’s a bit lacking in plot, and honestly a little ‘formulaic’ of me, but it was fun and quick and born on a Sunday, so it deserved to have a place on the site. Enjoy.
Creeper Mold Variant -
This a variant of the Nightmare Creeper Mold which is found primarily out in the open. It is much more mobile than its more domestic cousin, and will actually seek out and hunt prey. It uses a powerful contact toxin to stun a victim, usually with a single tiny touch, then proceeds to strip and secure them while they are helpless. By the time the prey regains conscious control of their body, the Creeper will have already started to arouse them sexually. Like the domestic variant, this demonic mold will also seek to bring them to orgasm repeatedly while slowly breaking into their mind and wiping away any memory of the encounter. Unfortunately for the victim, this variant does not release them however. It merely repeats the process over and over, gradually draining life from the host, who will ‘wake’ repeatedly, without any knowledge of where they are or how they could escape. After long enough, the prey will lose consciousness permanently and will eventually expire from overstimulation and exhaustion.

Yummy! I also want to give him a shout out and a very big ‘thank you’ for giving me the experience of hearing my stories out loud (read by someone else, yowza!). It has been both weird and highly educational. Nothing points out where you need to improve your writing more than having someone else read it out loud. Anyway, if you haven’t checked out his podcast site, DO! Hearing erotic stories read aloud is fun and sexy (though maybe not while you’re driving – made that mistake… WAY too distracting). There is talk of also doing The Dryad’s Dream as a podcast, so stay tuned!
Personal Update -
I was quite surprised to notice recently that I did not make a single art update in all of 2017. Anyone who has followed me for any time, knows that I use my art and writing as a means of relaxing. It’s what I do for fun when I have free time. The fact that I hadn’t posted in over twelve months should tell you what kind of year it has been for me. Due to changes in government, I lost a long standing employment gig and had to scramble for work. I also found out that my partner of many years has cancer and is terminal. She doesn’t have anyone else, so I have been caring for her, and it has been perhaps the hardest thing I have ever done. The pain of having to watch someone you love wither away like that… I wouldn’t wish that on an enemy. The future is pretty bleak right now, and unfortunately, it probably means that my updates will be sporadic at best. I’m sorry, really. Thank you for sticking with me all these years. I look forward to a time when I can update regularly. – Marjorie
