Tina's Christmas Party in 11" x 17" Color! (12-24-15)

"Tina's Christmas Party," Ink & Marker on 11" x 17" Bristol
Ebay Item #221977135348

Well, here it is!  A sneak peek into the Christmas party at Tina's Body and Performance.  Only took me two years to finish this.  Not bad, right?  Thanks my buddy Scasey64 for the idea, and our own lovable, festive OrionPirate for convincing me to switch this to an 11" x 17" format.  Sorry we didn't have an update last week, guys, but I knew I was going to have to start a week early on this to get it done on time.  Not to worry, lots more good stuff on the way!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Sasha Waits (12-10-15)

"Sasha," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay Item #281881657724

It's been a while since we've found Sasha indulging in her fetish for large toys.  Must be about that time again.  Of course, she'll need a little warm-up first.

Elven Ranger Faune & Elly (12-3-15)

"Elven Ranger Faune & Elly," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay Item # 221958980489

In a snowy mountain pass, Faune and her companion Elly rush to the aid of an elven damsel in distress.  I think I'll run with this one, and make the next couple of "Faune and Elly" pieces continuations of this one.  I've had fun serializing their little adventures over the last year.

Maisey in the Park (11-26-15)

"Maisey," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay Item # 221952207250

This one's done in Copic marker rather than Prismacolor.  As some of you know, I switched all my color work to Copic markers years ago, but still do all my monochrome pieces in Prismacolor.  I sometimes think about switching those over to Copic as well, as with this piece, but haven't done it yet.

"Kelsie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay Item # 281861970449

Hey, how about two color pieces in a row?  I'm actually thinking about doing color pieces a little more often, depending on how well these last two go over.

Anya & Tina in Color! (11-12-15)

"Sophie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay Item # 221939897149

It's been too long since we did something elaborate with color.  I've been asked several times how Anya has managed to start getting loose.  I prefer to leave that one up to the individual viewer, as there are several different ways that could go.  But in my own mind, I'm thinking that Tina intentionally left Anya something to work with.  Otherwise, she wouldn't have wandered off and left her little girlfriend tied up unattended.  She's too responsible for that.

Strip Bobbing with Mona (10-29-15)

"Mona," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay Item # 221926936170

Several people asked if we were going to have a Halloween-themed piece for this year, so here's Mona enjoying a nice game of bobbing for apples.  Looks to me like she's been losing pretty badly, at least up until this point.

We Knew it Was Coming- Patreon!

That's right, folks, I've been working for a long time on getting a plan together to make extra goodies available on Patreon.  But, I didn't want to launch it until I could get everything on track and keep it updated weekly.  Now that I'm able to make regular updates again, it's time to get some new stuff out there!  Remember when we had the "Studio" button up top?  Well, we didn't go with Patreon at that time because honestly, we didn't understand it.  I thought that Patreon was a place to ask for handouts without having anything of value to offer in return.  Not so!  Now that I've spent a lot of time studying Patreon, I feel confident that we're ready to open our doors there.  So check it out!  I think it's going to be a great time, with plenty of extra stuff to make it worthwhile.

New Archive on Tumblr!

I know I'm a dinosaur who prefers the "old ways," but we all know what happens to dinosaurs.  So, as part of this week's big project to update my online presence, the first phase has been to set up a nifty new page on Tumblr.  If nothing else, the archive function looks like it'll be very convenient.  So click the new black button on the right, and take a look!

Ebay Item # 281815496053

That's right, folks!  Regular monthly pieces again, and we're here to stay!  I know that spending the last couple of years doing everything the hard way was worthwhile, but it's so nice to be back.

More Ponies! Ebay Item # 281812690691

I've just finished the art for the second volume of I. Binder's pony fetish fiction, titled "A Change of Scene: Becoming a Ponyboy."  The cover art features both a pony boy and a pony girl, and has some interesting tension between the two.  Not too shabby, if I say so myself!  Anyway, the author only needed the digital copy, so the original art is for sale, just search Ebay for item # 281812690691 to take a look.

"Kelli," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay item # 281809355598

It seems as though things are finally starting to come together around here.  I think I've finally got the swing of producing the comics in a reasonable amount of time, so I've been pulling some hours away to get other things back on track.  I'm steadily catching up on old projects, learning new tricks, and perhaps most importantly, the "Dames" really are back for good!  I'm producing new pin-up pieces at least once a week, if not more, and hopefully it will get better from there.   This page will also be getting a couple of new buttons soon, so stay tuned!

Sasha Warms Up (9-16-15)

"Sasha," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay Item # 221888352259

Suddenly it's been getting chilly here in the evenings, so I guess it's time for Sasha to get out her traditional outfit again.  I know this piece may not look any different to anyone but me, but my methods are changing quite a bit.  The basic tools and techniques are the same, but I'm trying to improve my thinking about what I draw during the different stages of the work.  We'll see if anything comes of it!

Water is Stronger than Iron.

1972 Plymouth Fury Custom Suburban, 360 V8, Automatic.

Oh, life's little distractions.  Okay, so this starts at least twenty years ago when I was a teenager.  I was walking through a parking lot, and saw a green '72 Fury wagon parked there, with plates from another county about 70 miles from here.  Apparently the owners had rolled into town to get supplies at the big stores before going back out to resume life on the empty prairie.  At that time, I'd never even seen a '72 Fury before, much less a wagon, and thought it must be the coolest-looking station wagon ever conceived.  Keep in mind that we had no internet here at that time, and Fury wagons didn't appear in car magazines or books- only the small two-door cars got exposure in those pages.  So anyway, life went on, and since then I've owned a few wagons that were similar, but not quite as interesting to me as the one I'd seen in the parking lot.  So, last year, I was cruising through some online ads and saw a car for sale, near me, that was very similar to the one I'd seen twenty years before.  In fact, it wasn't just similar, but it was actually the very same car!  It was extremely cheap, as the block was broken, but there it was, the same one I'd wanted all that time.  So of course, Tobie and I bought it, and it's been sitting in the driveway with the broken block ever since.  This, friends, is why antifreeze is so important.  Someone had replaced the engine 40K miles ago, but ran straight water in it, which of course froze up on the prairie, expanded, and broke the block.  So earlier in the spring of this year, we made a deal with a friend of ours for a 360 in good condition, not new, but with low miles and a lot of new parts.  But, we couldn't get our schedules coordinated to pick it up.  So finally, last week, our friend calls and says he has time for us to pick it up.  Which I was happy to do, but the only catch is, it didn't have an oil pan or valve covers on it to keep it closed up and dry.  I've got no indoor storage for engines, so the only option was to immediately pull the broken engine from the car, swap the oil pan and covers onto the new engine, and install it.  I drained the oil pan on the broken motor, and found that it not only had the prescribed four quarts of oil, but three more quarts of water, equaling seven quarts of Plymouth diarrhea- and it was in everything, everywhere.  So anyway, there's three days down the tubes from thrashing with sludgy junk in my driveway.  But hopefully this fall I can get a couple more days to finish hooking everything up, install a couple more parts, and finally have the wagon on the road.  We're planning on using it to haul T-shirts to swap meets and conventions, so who knows, maybe you'll see it on the road some day.

Yuk.

"You Are Here"

We're definitely having one of those days where we wish we could buy a different house.  The red dot on the "air quality index" map?  Yeah, that's us.  Good ol' Lewiston valley.  Worst air quality in the nation right now.  I think we're going to Moscow for dinner tonight.  It's still nasty even up there, but at least it's a third lower on their rating scale.  We've got two air cleaners running in the house, and the A/C blower running full time to draw air through the filter.

Regardless, even the cats look droopy.

New Ebay Item!

Back in the Saddle Again

1971 Buick Riviera, 455 V8, TH400 Auto

Of the sixty-some-odd cars I've owned, this one was the first, bought twenty one years ago.  It will always be my favorite.  Strangely, this car almost seems like a reflection of my life.  When times are tough, she sits in the driveway, deteriorating.  When times are good, we're on the road together, happy as a clam.  After watching her rot in front of my house for the last eight years, I've spent the last two weeks putting her back together.  She's looking rough, with the clear coat burned away in huge patches and a shabby demeanor inside and out, but I couldn't be happier.  The original bench seat has made way for a correct pair of factory buckets and matching original-equipment console-mounted shifter.  Steering and brakes are back to working as they should.  The big 455 is showing its age, but is now in decent tune, quick and smooth.  I've missed hearing its bark through the dual glasspacks.  It's good to be back.

Elven Ranger Faune and Elly (8-9-15)

"Faune & Elly," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay Item # 281769859561

This one has been in the works for quite a while.  To recap, when we first encountered Elly, she was certainly antagonistic, having captured our dear elven ranger for the amusement of some unseen villain.  In her second appearance, we saw her having a change of heart and smuggling Faune out of a dungeon.  In the third piece to feature both of these characters, it was Elly who was in trouble, and Faune was attempting to return the favor and rescue her from the Spider Queen.  I'd planned many months ago to draw a fourth piece that would depict both ladies finally taking a break and getting to know each other better, and here it is.

"Cobra's Trap" #3, Now Available!

"Cobra's Trap" Part 3, available at lustomic.com

For those of you who have been following the exploits of Joyce, Kacey, Stephie, and the rest of the cast of "Cobra's Trap," the climactic conclusion is now available over at lustomic.com!  It's been a wild ride, not just for the characters, but for those of us involved in production, as well.  Over the course of writing, editing, designing, penciling, inking, and coloring sixty pages of full-color comic art for the first time, I can certainly say I've learned a lot.  I'm confident that the experience has made me better in every way professionally, which will improve the pinups of the "Dames" and every other project I take on from here on out.  Thanks to everyone for your patience while this has been in production!

Streaming Live from Andy's Studio!

Hey cats and kittens, we're starting to get this whole streaming thing figured out.  Not only are we talking about streaming from the computer while coloring digitally, but we've set up a camera in the studio, right over the drawing table, so you can watch me stumble my way through pencil drawings and bungle up some ink and marker work!  Probably going to be a real mess.  We're still getting the kinks worked out, but once this is going, we hope it'll be a regular thing.  We'll be broadcasting with audio, so go ahead and send us a message in the chat window, and we'll respond through your headphones.  Exact times for streaming are yet to be established, but look for us mostly in the evenings, Pacific time.  Just go to Picarto.tv and type "andysdames" in the search box.  See you there!

Ponygirl Racing in Color! (6-11-15)

Cover art for "The Summer Job (Becoming a Ponygirl)" by I. Binder
Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay item 221799244422

So I'm still scratching to get back on schedule after taking so much time to get "Cobra's Trap" off the ground, but I'm making good progress!  Thanks to everyone who's been so patient, as always.  This week's Ebay auction is for a piece of art I was commissioned to produce as a cover for an upcoming e-book titled "The Summer Job (Becoming a Ponygirl)" by I. Binder, available later this year on Amazon.  The author only needed the digital file to use for the book, so the original artwork is available for sale.

"Cobra's Trap" #2 Now Available!

"Cobra's Trap" Part 2, available at lustomic.com

Tobie and I have been really surprised at how popular "Cobra's Trap" has been.  It's not for everyone, that's for sure, but for those of you who have enjoyed the first episode, the second is now available over at lustomic.com.  Thanks to everyone for being so patient while we were working out how to switch over to digital color for our comics.  We're sure that the wait has been worthwhile, as the new episode has a lot of visual punch.  And the third is already well underway!  Look for much more regular episodes from us from here on out. 

As an update to this post, it looks like the Google/Blogger/Whatever system of handling photos was changed again very recently.  This time there doesn't appear to be a way to turn it off, so we'll see what the next few posts look like.  But the colors in the sample above are pretty messed up from what they're supposed to be.  Argh.

Pony Girl Kelsie (5-27-15)

"Kelsie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol
Ebay Item 281704808138

We're back!  I want to thank every single one of you for being so patient while I've been away from the drawing board for so long.  I really didn't think it would take even half as long as it did to get my digital art techniques figured out for "Cobra's Trap," but we made it.  I've even made some changes to how I produce my traditional pen-and-marker pieces that I think will improve the quality of my work.  So, let's get back to the show, shall we?  

For those of you who are anxious for the second episode of "Cobra's Trap," it's getting the final touches from the publisher, and should be available in a few days.  The third episode is in the works right now, and should take far less time to produce than the first two did.

Checking In!

Andy & Boo in the Studio

Hey, guys!  I wanted to check in and let everyone know what's going on.  Sorry I don't have anything to post besides this photo Tobie took of myself with one of our cats, Boo.  The kitty in the left of our last photo was Blackberry, by the way, and our third cat, Cricket, will doubtless appear eventually.

Anyway, the state of affairs is that I'm making great progress on everything, I'm just much further behind schedule than anticipated.  Switching to digital production for "Cobra's Trap" has been much more difficult to learn than I expected.  But, the new computer is working out great, as well as the new Cintiq display and that little keypad that's in front of the cat (though she still refuses to use it, so I have to do it all).  It's been tough trying to crash-course all of this stuff the hard way, but I'm learning more and getting faster every day, so I have no doubt that this will all work out well.

In fact, I have a whole new plan up my sleeve for getting things done around here, and there's some good stuff on the way in the months to come.  Our fifth CD should be ready to go sometime this summer, as well as plenty of new art in the works.  More new projects and ideas are underway as well, with a solid plan to get them done in a reasonable time, so stick around and I'll do everything I can to make it worthwhile.

Also, I'll admit that there have been other delays, but that's also improving.  As some of you know, I've been dealing with family health problems, which have been a necessary distraction.  However, it seems I now have a minor problem of my own, as I realized I've got a long list of symptoms for type 2 diabetes.  Not unexpected, as I've been fueling myself with soda pop and chocolate for most of my thirty-seven years, and knew that I needed to clean up my act "eventually, before it becomes a problem."  Well, now it's a problem, so it's time to clean up.  Daily exercise and no more junk food- let that be a lesson to anyone else out there with the same bad habits.  So withdrawl hasn't been much fun, but I'm amazed at how much better I've been feeling and working the last few days.  Now I know why I couldn't sleep, couldn't stay awake, couldn't focus, and just generally was having a harder time working than necessary.  So hey, it's not a bad thing- just past due!  Looking forward to losing weight and having a lot more energy to produce a lot more art.

So anyway, that's what's up.  I'll get done with "Cobra's Trap #2" very soon, and we'll have some more lovely bondage art for everyone right afterwards.  Thanks again to all of you for your amazing patience and support!

As They Say These Days, "That Escalated Quickly"

A sixty-pound display needs a real desk.
Good thing I happen to have one.

Sorry it's been so long since we had any new material here, but I wanted to stop by and let everyone know that there will be more "Dames" coming along soon.  The last few weeks have been incredibly busy, but I'm steadily getting it all sorted out.  One of the biggest distractions has been a huge upgrade we made to the studio by adding a complete "digital art department," which I thought I'd never do.  Fact of the matter is, "Cobra's Trap" has been far more popular than I'd ever expected.  So, since it's only distributed over the internet, there seems to be no reason not to produce it with as many digital tools as possible to save time.  So, we got a loan to add a refurbished and upgraded Mac Pro to the studio to relieve my twelve-year-old Power Mac G5, as well as a new Cintiq 24HD Touch pen display and a few other gadgets.  That will save a ton of time and improve things for everyone.  The supporters of "Cobra's Trap" will get more regular episodes, and since they'll take much less time to finish, I'll have more time to produce my traditional art featuring the "Dames."  Of course there's a huge learning curve, so I've spent a lot more hours lately than I'd like to give myself a crash course in digital production.  So stick around, and the "Dames" will be back soon!

ebay item 221703665172

As you may have heard, Google/Blogger have been changing their policies back and forth regarding adult content on blogs like this one.  As far as I know, we're okay for now.  But if this blog disappears, keep checking back, as we're already planning on setting up somewhere else soon.  I pay annually to keep the "andysdames.com" domain name, so just bookmark that and keep stopping by.  But hey, I can't complain, this service has been great for us for years, and hasn't cost us a dime for hosting.

As many of you know, we've been having some technical difficulties with our online store.  It works fine for our prints and CD sets, but sometimes messes up with the original artwork.  So, we're going back to ebay for the art, at least for a little while.  Just click the ebay button on the right, or paste 281598651920 into ebay's search bar.

Thanks for your patience, everyone!  New items are coming soon!

Not What You Were Expecting...

"Cobra's Trap" Part 1, available at lustomic.com

So, where have I been lately?  Catching up on old commissions and projects long overdue.  Not to worry, our favorite dames will be back very, very soon.  

Back when I quit the day job, I was approached by the nice folks at lustomic.com with a very generous offer to produce a comic for them.  Since lustomic is a site that specializes in "forced feminization" femdom themes, at first I wasn't sure, since cross-dressing isn't one of my particular fetishes.  But Tobie and I were given free reign to write the story, as long as it contained the elements that lustomic's clientele require, so we went for it.  Who would've expected a femdom story that revolves around street racing and a 1970 Torino GT?  I know we get quite a bit of traffic from sites that do specialize in femdom and cross-dressing fetishes, so for those of you who particularly enjoy these themes, and I know you're here, please take a moment to cruise over to lustomic.com and look for "Cobra's Trap" by Andy!  We appreciate your support.

Happy Trails, Eleanor

1973 Mustang Mach 1, 351C-2V, FMX Automatic, A/C

Though Kelli still has her Mustang, I no longer have mine.  Can't say I'm too pleased about it, either, but sometimes we do what we have to do.  At least the bills are caught up, and we made progress on Tobie's medical expenses.  And as anyone familiar with the "Eleanor" mythos knows (particularly the original version filmed in '74), there's always more than one "Eleanor."  So, perhaps there will be another time.  Meanwhile, I've still got six other beaters from the 1970s, so it's not like I don't have anything to work on outside when spring arrives.  And I still have my favorite, a '71 Riviera I've had for twenty years, so I think I'll be working on that soon.

Millie Marker Painting (1-5-15) SOLD

"Millie," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $70

It's cold and snowy up here, so it seems like a good time to take a break on a sunny beach with Millie.  To make things even sunnier, I found an article online that showed me where to find the new "auto photo enhance" function and turn the damnable thing off.  So, no more murky gray art, I'm hoping!
