I started working on this scene back in February, I think? I got back to it eventually!

I’ve decided to start posting my Modest Medua strips here on Tumblr as well. If you’re new to the comic you can find the rest of it here.

THIS MAKES MY LIFE SO MUCH BETTER. LIKE TEN TIMES MORE ADORABLE.

Since I stopped actively stalking my over flooded twitter (Why must writers tweet every five minutes???) - I kept missing my Modusa updates. ;=;

AND NOW? That time is over. 

Hi, Jake!

Hey!

Modest Medusa 432: Responsible One

- From now on I’ll be posting my Medusa Strips here on Tumblr as well. If you’re new to teh comic you can find teh older strips here.

- Come see me at the Portland Zine Symposium this weekend!

- I just started reading leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey. It’s been over a year since I’ve read any real sci-fi, and I’m enjoying it so far.

- Modest Medusa Patreon month continues! We’re inching close to our $800 goal, up $5 from Monday! that may not seem like much, but every dollar really helps. Thanks guys! Your Patreon contributions help me make a living doing comics and give me financial freedom to spend time making art instead of doing crap day work.

Modest Medusa 431: Digits

I’ve decided to start posting my Modest Medua strips here on Tumblr as well. If you’re new to the comic you can find the rest of it here.

- On Sunday we had the first ever Modest Medusa live draw. It lasted about 2 hours, and you can see the art that came out of it below. The live draw is a new monthly thing that’s made possible by your Patreon contributions. I can afford to take a few hours off every now and than to just hang out and draw and chat with you guy, thanks to you guys! You can watch the whole thing here. The session ended up being divided between a few videos, and there’s no sound (all you’re missing is my music though), but those are problems I’ll fix for the next one.

Here’s the Medusa/Legend of Korra fan art I was working on during the session. It’s not quite finished yet. I still need to add some highlights and change the background. I’m a HUGE Korra fan, and KorrAsami is probably my OTP. If comic Jake ever dies I’m hoping Korra and Asami will adopt Medusa!

- It’s still Modest Medusa Patreon month, and the goal is still $800. We gained $10 over the weekend, so we’re still moving! Thanks guys! Your Patreon contributions help me make a living doing comics and give me financial freedom to spend time making art instead of doing crap day work. In return, you get more art and comics from me, plus stuff like the live drawing sessions. Our next Milestone Goal (at $800) is a regular “Ask Medusa” feature, where I’ll draw Medusa answering reader questions. It should be pretty cool!

You can check out my Patreon page here. Even a $1-5 each month really helps, and I certainly appreciate the support!

It’s Adventure Time Medusa! With jake as BMO!  Here’s the art for July’s Medusa sticker of the month! Each month Medusa Patron’s who pledge 425 or more receive a pack of stickers in the mail. 

This month I’m trying hard to get my Patreon campaign to teh next Milestone Goal, which is $800. Right now we’re at about $540, which isn’t close, but also isn’t that far. Your Patreon contributions help me make a living doing Modest Medusa and allow me to focus on making comics instead of having to spend most of my time doing other work to pay the bills. I really appreciate your support!

So every month I do a new bit of “Medusa dressed as something I like”. It gets posted here and made into a special sticker for my Patreon backers. It’s fun and gives me a chance to draw things I just don’t really get to draw much. This month’s is probably the most obscure one yet. Here’s Medusa as a samurai. But not just any samurai. This is Medusa as a Crab Clan bushi from Legend of the Five Rings. L5R is a very long running CCG made by the people who did 7th Sea, my all time favorite CCG. I’ve never been super hardcore about L5R, but I’ve played a bit here and there over the years. I am a huge fan of the Crab Clan though, a samurai family of huge, ill tempered warriors and sinister shugenja that dedicate their lives to defending an enormous wall that separates civilization from the demon infested Shadowlands. Pretty cool! The Crabs are sometimes the bad guys of the story and sometimes the good guys, an one of them blew up the moon once and than became god, so that’s pretty great. Anyway, here’s Medusa as a badass Crab Samurai. Some friends and I each bought a deck of cards from teh new set last month and have been playing the game a little. It’s fun!

 Here’s a new Modest Medusa versus Sherlock wallpaper for Patreon backers.  I came up with the idea while using the restroom at Sakuracon last month. Anyway, your support through Patreon has been amazing so far, and now we’re less than $50 from our next milestone goal, a monthly live drawing session. If you’re interested in contributing and becoming a patron please check out the page here. All contributions are super appreciated, no matter how modest!
