Bait now has a really permanent home

I am pleased to announce that my (very) graphic novella Bait has a permanent Internet Archive home:

Here is the link to the archive page, where you can download the whole graphic novel and all of its pendant art in either CBZ (a comic book archive format similar to ZIP) or as a single big PDF document. You can also read the comic in a nifty screen reader the archive provides (also embedded in small size above). The archive has also auto-converted my uploads into a variety of other formats. The completeness or reliability of these versions is a bit uncertain, but I would welcome reports from anyone who wants to look at them.

At 113 pages and with no fewer than five contributing artists, the assembly and uploading of this version of the comic was an unusual challenge, and it pleases me no end that this particular phase of the Bait project is now complete!

Another Noel Toy by Dark Vanessa

A kneeling representation of the exotic dancer Noel Toy by Dark Vanessa.

Another just-gorgeous image of the Chinese-American exotic dancer Noel Toy (1918-2003) done by my friend Dark Vanessa (you can see her first illustration here. A nice transition between chapters of Visiting Faculty! If you’re feeling generous, Vanessa has a Patreon page as well.

Dark Vanessa imagines Noel Toy

noel-toy.blogsize.1

This image is a bit of a change of pace from Erotic Mad Science, but seems appropriate for Valentine’s Day, somehow. It’s Dark Vanessa’s re-imagining of the mid-century exotic dancer Noel Toy (1918-2003). Doesn’t she look just gorgeous? Dark Vanessa has another of her in the works…

Tanya Self-Pleasures

As I find August to be something of a dismal month I’d like to brighten things up a little bit with what is in effect a double pin-up, a commissioned piece by the Argentine artist Dark Vanesaa (now publishing at DeviantArt as *DarkVanessaLusT) which I am calling Tanya Self-Pleasures, showing that the erotic potential of music has penetrated rather deeply into Tanya’s…psyche, a fact which will be of great significance in her future trajectory as a character. You can click through the image to get the glorious (if large) full-size image.

Tanya Yip uses her hands and her music to reach ecstasy.
