Long time, no write!

On the upside, our general absence from DeviantArt has been because we've been super busy with ongoing (and upcoming) projects, so it's all good news!

Coming up in the new year, Lesbians101 will be released as a small booklet with bonus material and other never-before-published tidbits, we'll be contributors to the award-winning anthology Smut Peddler 2014, several of our other comics will soon be available as hi-res PDFs (and sent off to print, while we're at it), new YouTube videos, and many other projects I can't fully divulge at the moment, but it's all very fun and exciting to work on.

And as for right now,
we've been busily making prints, merch, and original art for sale! You can find anything from prints to t-shirts to phone cases in our Society6 store, or nab one-of-a-kind original pieces of art including line art and paintings on Etsy! (And if you shop Etsy, just plug in our coupon "20PERCENT" to get 20% your entire order!)

Finally, in personal news, all's fantastic on the home front! We recently adopted a leucistic Texas rat snake, so our Tumblr has been a whole lot of stuff like this, but if you're into obnoxiously cute snakes, that's probably good news for you. I won't bore you with loads of other details, after all, between all of the social platforms below, you can pretty much get real-time updates about our stupid lives, so check 'em out if you're curious.

Thanks so much for following, thank you very much for all of the birthday wishes, and even if I'm never great at keeping up with journals, we'll keep throwing art your way!

Love and Kisses

Hey everyone! It's Hourly Comics Day again, and I'll be uploading every other hourly comic or so right here on dA until it's over, with the finished version coming later! This year it will be colored by my wife, so I hope you look forward to that as much as I do!

Also, our Society6 Shop is updated with new prints, iPhone cases and stationary cards of some of the more popular pieces! Go check it out under the "Shop" link!

Both of our sites are getting a revamp, but they'll be updated after we get back from our trip to PDX. In related news, we're going to be in PDX for 6 days next week! We're stoked about seeing Portlandia in person and spending time with our best chums in the world ( Go check out Foley's Art & Writing here: www.foleypdx.com/ and Anne's Podcast BoyHowdy about comics gaming, movies and more here: boyhowdypodcast.com/ and their LadyLike Book Club, a podcast about books about ladies who like ladies here: www.ladylikebookclub.com/ )! We'll probably be making some little comics to commemorate the event and we hope to have the lots of photos to upload here, as well!

Lots of good wishes to everyone on this Very Long, Hourly Day!

Love and Kisses,
- A.

Hey all!

Sorry for the inconvenience in accessing our sites! We've been getting so much traffic as of late that we have to update our servers! Unfortunately, this process can take a bit of time. The sites should be up soon enough, but in the meantime, you can still find updates on all of our social media pages! We hope you'll excuse our virtual dust while we spruce up the sites so there will be less-to-no downtime, faster load time and lots of shiny new features for you to enjoy!

All the Best,
-A.

First off, thanks everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes and Happy Turkey Day to those who celebrate it!

We have some neat things coming up, but I can't give away any details yet. Suffice it to say, I'm excited about them(and they might include a new short comic or two)!

I hope everyone's holiday season is filled with only good things! Thanks for all of the support!

I'm happy to announce that Lesbians 101 is back up and will be updated here on dA regularly! Lesson 3 was restored and is currently up for your viewing pleasure!  

Thanks so much for writing to the staff with your opinion on the matter, and thank you especially to the staff for listening to our concerns regarding this issue!

For those curious, the FAQ has now been updated to include a more detailed description of what is considered pornographic by dA policies, here: help.deviantart.com/565/

Since our sex toy depictions didn't fall under the 'realistic' definition and because the educational context was taken into consideration, Lesson 3 is now allowed to exist on dA, snuggled happily in with all of its brother and sister lessons.

Thanks so much, again, and I look forward to posting the next installment of Lesbians 101 here on dA!

All the Best,
A.S.

------------------------------------------------------------

Edit:

Read the informative, funny and incredibly nice Sex Toy CEA Discussion: kozispoon.deviantart.com/journ…

It includes a nod to Lesbians 101 for sparking the discussion, a more thorough explanation of the policy change and wonderful art by kozispoon

Thanks again to the Staff, dA's legal team and everyone who has invested time in this rather important, if 'naughty', issue! A new Lesson of Lesbians 101 should be up soon!

Still No Lesbians 101 for You!

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 23, 2012, 6:26 PM
Since the last Lesbians 101 was taken down for 'pornographic imagery', i.e., sex toys used in an educational and non-sexual reference, the remainder of the Lesbians 101 series will not be posted here on dA. Unfortunately, despite a number of people contacting dA staff in regards to this issue, it remains unresolved, or at the very least, unchanged.

See last journal entry regarding that here: findchaos.deviantart.com/journ…

I agree completely that dA has every right to remove or prohibit content they see fit, but I feel the message Lesbians 101 is trying to convey would be lessened by having an entire chunk censored. I also don't agree with the standards of dA that erect 'males' may be displayed for scientific or educational purposes (as stated in Rule #565 "Erections: There should be no use of imagery depicting a male erection, however there may be exceptions granted to illustrations created for legitimate medical or educational purposes."), but women that choose to display plastic replicas of such for an educational purpose fall under a harsher policy. I also don't understand the policy because some of the most popular artists on dA have displayed sex toys (even with the description 'Sex Toy' in the title) without removal or policy being enforced on them.

I'm not going to argue with the dA staff on this and I respect their decision, but I still don't agree with it, which is why you'll have to go to the main site to see Lesbians 101 from now on! We will leave the previous pages up for their intended educational purpose, but the rest of the comic will be displayed everywhere except dA for the time being.

For the most recent lesson, you can click here: chaoslife.findchaos.com/lesbia…

(In accordance with dA's policies, the above link DOES NOT link to anything even they would consider 'pornographic', only fully clothed people and a door sign with some text here and there. If you click on anything else on that page, that's strictly up to you and NOT something I linked to.)

Happy Reading!

- A.
