COMMISSION: AMIGA WESTWOOD

A ref sheet I did earlier this year for my friend @CloverArizona! This is their skater aardwolf Apogee’s cool cool older sister who shares her brother’s interest in grabbing mad air and gleaming the cube and whatnot. This was super fun to work on!

COMMISSION: SURF MAP

A commission I did earlier this year of @paralysispoison‘s delightful Pyro/dragon character Piper! The setting is loosely inspired by surf maps, modded maps in TF2 where players use abstract map geometry to parkour around and fling themselves at speeds previously unknown to man or dolphin. Needless to say, this was EXTREMELY fun to work on!

VANCAF! Plus: SUPER ADMIN!

Hey folks! Just a small reminder that I’ll be at VanCAF 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia this weekend! INTERNATIONAL STYLE. I’ll be selling copies of Crossed Wires and Epiphany, plus some cool cool merchandise over at Table F2 with my wonderful husband Nero O’Reilly and my illustrious friend Margaret Trauth. AND! I’ll have something NEW, though it isn’t so much of a piece of merchandise as much as it is a service.

I’m starting a freelance administrative service for creative professionals like myself! If you’ve been itching for someone to tidy your inbox, edit your manuscript, lay out your book for print or write press releases for your upcoming products, then let me and my decade-plus of freelance experience work for you! Check out a full range of services and rates at http://irisjay.net/superadmin.

See you in The ‘Coove! And if I won’t see you there, maybe you’ll be at… BLFC??? BUT OF COURSE, that’s a blog post for another time…

VHS COMMISSION: AW. SKATEBOARDING

Realized I hadn’t posted a couple of these here yet! Will throw some up over the course of the next couple days. This was a commission for @apogeeaardwolf on Twitter, from my VHS series last year!

I love designing fake skater stuff. It’s an aesthetic language all its own. Props to Apogee for coming up with the “AW” logo design, which everything else pretty much crystallized around.

WITCHSONA / MEET THE ARTIST 2017

Belated post for Witchsona / “Meet The Artist” week on Twitter, which apparently occurred simultaneously. I decided to save time and do one piece for both.

2017 is already turning out to be a howling nightmare of a year, but we’re not alone and we all have the power to help each other. I’m going to put my everything into protecting the people I care about this year. I suggest you do the same.

NEW FOR FC ’17: ICON BADGES.

It’s been a while since our last fur con, hasn’t it? Well, the wait is over.

NEW AND EXCLUSIVE FOR FURTHER CONFUSION 2017 FROM IRIS JAY SUPER COMICS: ICON BADGES!! Yes, after years of experimentation and struggle, we FINALLY figured out how to get real reflective gold foil on a badge!

These things are so fancy they’re practically jewelry: Four types of ink on grey-toned paper, knife-cut by hand and assembled on shiny reflective gold-patterned paper! The ideal badge for those who want to give their character a touch of class… or who are just helplessly attracted to shiny things. (IT’S 2017 AND IT’S COOL TO BE SINCERELY INTO SHINY STUFF AGAIN. CALM DOWN NAYSAYERS.) I’m only taking orders for these at FC’17, so once the con ends, that’s it!

They’re running for $50 each, and we’re doing something a little different with these: 20% of all profits will be donated to Planned Parenthood! I’ve made about seventy billion zillion badges in the nearly 9 years since I started going to furry conventions, I might as well start using them to give something back to a fantastic network of caregivers who need it right now. Get some cool art and help out in the process!

I have juuuust enough time for three pre-orders before the con starts. If you’d like one, hit me up irisjaycomics [at] gmail and I’ll have it ready for you by Friday at Further Confusion, table #89! (Or, if you aren’t attending, I’ll mail yours to you afterwards!)

See you at FC! TIME TO GET EXCITED.
