Relative Perspectives

It's a constant stand-off. I blame these two for all the talking to myself I do.


I know you're sick of shopping, but my boss told me I had to put the link up anyway:

Dorkling 2013 Wall Calendars!!

I cannot believe I pulled this off. I AM a magical unicorn magician lady. Yes, listen to me toot my friggen horn. I worked my patookah off. I must say, I am proud of myself, especially because I believe the material is solid.
What the hell am I talking about, anyway? A calendar! A Dorkling 2013 Wall Calendar to be exact! Let me blab about this for a minute...I just spent three days essentially by myself, eating whatever bugs crawled onto my desk, not sleeping, listening to waaay to much terrible music, so...forgive my excitement. ;)
ALL the art featured in this calendar is NEW- as in, I completed it THIS MORNING. It has been viewed by no one, and published nowhere but in this wall calendar. (I might make prints at some point down the road). But it's okay- you don't have to buy a copy to see the art! You can scroll through all the months and see each image at the link below the picture. Now, a word to heed- YES, I am allowing 100% free viewing of all my art, comics, and various other forms of entertainment. YES, sharing my work for free is my choice- sharing has always been my top priority with my work. would be *awfully sporting* of you if you would consider making a purchase (of my calendar or from one of my shops). Don't do it out of pity- I hate that crap! If you see something you like, though, and you have money, why not buy it? It's a huge compliment to me, and extremely helpful to my art and comic life. Alls I'm sayin is someone's got to feed the court jester, she can't dance on an empty stomach! ;) The calendar:

Self Sabotage

This...this is a comic I had drawn up months ago, but was hesitant at the time to post it. Now...well...I just don't give a fuck.

I know I should just delete those 'trouble' numbers, but I don't, and I probably won't. Sad.


Have you done your confounded holiday shopping yet? Someone hard to buy for on your list? Even though I am a certified Grinch, I can still help you, but only if you go here and spend money:

This week's comic is a full hand colored illustration! A bit astray from the regular Dorkling themes, but take it as a peek into my imagination, if you will:

Should you have an interest in owning the original artwork (12" x 9", ink, acrylic, paint on bristol, $60 + shipping), please email me... Otherwise it will be going up in my zombietoes shop in the next week ;)

Sunday Funday

...I was so tired yesterday that I didn't even post this. *sigh* Well, here it is now. Perhaps this will shed some light onto the reclusiveness of my weekends.

Remember, if you are looking at this and feeling pity for me, then you are looking at it all wrong. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy"- but not so for Emily. My work is my play, and I am good at it. Maybe not great, but good is good enough for me. The only sadness here is that I have a humanoid body, and it needs to rest and fuel up and such. ;)


GO SHOPPING!! Starving artist is STARVING!

I am Jack's Wednesday

Here's where it starts to get a little hairy...because all this art is not anywhere near complete or organized...and I have kitchen work tomorrow......

I am Jack's Monday

This week I have decided to try something a bit different...I am going to post one comic a day! I will tell you that it's a bit of a cop-out, though, as it won't really start to make sense or be very funny until a few days in. Just fair warning. One joke spread over seven days. It's essentially a stylized look at my work week. The entire 'strip' is titled "I am Jack's all work and no play"...Here is Em's Monday:

Working on compiling a list of some other things (comic related, Emily related, art related, etc) to blather about here...If you have any suggestions, send me a message of some type. Email, text, smoke signals, whatevers.

Day with the Boys

My favorite holiday- and in my world, every holiday gets a well wishing of "Happy Halloween"!!!

In other news, I need to spruce up this blog. Maybe add some "non-comic" arts. I definitely want to have an artist showcase/feature of some kind. Sick of writing about myself. Well, then, off to think about all this a bit more, and make a bunch of lists that I will probably lose somewhere along the way...

A Different Animal

There are a lot of times in my life where, I swear to god, people think I am some sort of magician, or superhero, or a miracle worker...Alas, I am none of these things. I can only work with what I have at hand. If that is crappy produce, a defunct word processing program, or $5 to my name for art supplies, so be it. I will find a way, which most likely will include lots of grumbling and some colorful language. And then I will draw a comic about my frustration:

That is Bruce, by the way- he has not been introduced until now! We love Bruce.

I just added a bunch of BRAND NEW items to my zombietoes etsy shop for your pleasure!

Vulgar Eclipse

I like science. That does not mean I take it any more seriously than anything else, though:

This comic is a full color piece of art- illustrated in archival inks, acrylic paints, and pencils on vellum...One of those rare comic originals that is available to the public!! See the listing for more rambling, pictures, and purchase info: "Vulgar Eclipse" original comic art

You should totally be shopping right now, seeing as you've just finished reading this week's comic:

Runcible Reality

This week's comic is of a literary nature...(ooh, fancy!)

So, the background on this piece- This is a different, and visual, version of Edward Lear's nonsense poem "The Owl and the Pussy Cat". Additionally, the word "runcible" was made up, and used frequently, by the author (mainly as an adjective, but there is no designated meaning for it). So, yeah, there, I just explained away my joke to the point of humorlessness. I just want you to know that I do actually read and tyhink about things other than work and myself. It doesn't happen often, though. ;)

I should also note that this is a full color illustration comic, and is available for purchase RIGHT HERE in my zombietoes shop! Save it from the zombies, they haven't had any flesh or brains in so long, they are turning to my comic art!! AHHH!!

New art, prints, + Public Appearance Info! (no comic, sorry)

Oh My GOSH YOU GUYS!! I am a total slacker. I have had this post in my head for over a week now, and am just now getting around to typing it up. I am not sure what has happened to me in the past few months, but it is becoming apparent that I am having issues with blog posting. I used to be so good about it, (talking here about my fantasy art blog- Darkling Treasures, back in the day). Perhaps it is the call of physical pen and paper that is louder than my keyboard now (this is not really a bad thing). So, anyway, I have a lot of crap to share. New art! New character overviews! New prints! And A public appearance too! Ahhh! Let me start with the art....

For fans of my FB page, this is not a new piece to you. But for those of you who are BUMS, you are seeing "Hal" for the first time! He is a hand pulled screen print that I made all on my own from one of my illustrations. I love him. LOVE! I've managed to get a batch of limited edition prints of Hal together (6 each of green and brown). You can get all the info and even get yourself a print at the link below the picture:

"Hal" owl screen prints

I also have most of the second batch of dorkling prints listed in my shop as well...see all the available comic stuff HERE: woo, STUFF!

There are a few new Character Overviews up- DShaw, Buddy, uhhh...Tron...uhhh, that might be it for the moment. I've only got a few more to post and then they will all be up! :D Check the page: Character Overview

NOW...Public Appearance announcement time! Yeah, so, if you know me at all, you KNOW I never get out in public. To be honest, it is extremely overwhelming for me. I know, I probably just need to do it more often and get used to it. But I really get freaked out. So sue me. However, I will have a table at the Paint & Pixel Festival in Northampton, MA this October!! A WHOLE TABLE!! And, I am bringing one of the characters from my strip with me (well, four, actually, if you count me, G, and B, but I don't). I will be bringing some originals, Ralphies, prints in assorted sizes, and other random things...Check out the awesome at one or all of their links:

So, that's about all I have at the moment. I drew a bunch of silly animals today, and I have some other art that I really need to get to posting and sharing, so be on the (lazy) lookout for those! Mad love!

Screaming Treats

So...I have been kind of hiding out, went into hermit mode last week. But I was doin' stuff...Here's this week's comic:

I have a LOT of news, art, and updates, but in the spirit of keeping everything organized, I will be putting all that into another blog post- TOMORROW! For now, please enjoy my tid bit of humor without too much pressure to put forth any effort...but you'd better laugh. At least crack a smile. That is all I ever ask.


Please support a living comic artist- go shopping in my store! Everything is hand made with love and humor, on a great rush of sugar and caffeine! Good times!

If the Shoe Fits

I've been in an effed up fairy-tale mood lately...weird.

Up to my eyeballs in projects, all flat surface area in my studio is covered, some things are stacked precariously, I've even set up a drying line complete with clothes pins in my bedroom...came in handy today when the drier crapped out on me. :\ Of course, said line being used for clothes drying put a damper on my production levels...fuh. It's always something.

Alush in Wonderland

I really wanted to actually COLOR with markers and ink and paint this that is what I did! This is a tad off the general comic world of Dorkling, but still...

The original art is a full color illustration (pen, ink, pencils, acrylic) on 8.5" x 5.75" paper (it's vellum, 90lb if you need all that bullshit technical jargon) and it is AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE!! This is the very first time I have ever offered an original comic illustration for sale!! It probably will not happen that often!! This piece is $45.00 (plus shipping) and if you are interested in purchasing it, please email me at and let me know! First come, first serve, and if it sells I will be sure to post that. If I get no emails in the next few days, it will be going into my zombietoes etsy shop. I would do it now, but it is late, I have to eat dinner still, and some other things. Always, always some other things.

A Song For Jordan

On occasion, we like to serenade each other at work...

So...I have ordered a new batch of prints, which I will be posting for sale very soon (I have said this all weekend; alas, I have been exhausted from the day job when I get home, like too tired to think). Also, an exciting (mysterious) project in the works! But I will save all this for another post ;)

Don't forget- original art, prints, hand made fun, zines and books, all by ME, all HERE:

Order of Crab Rangoon

I haven't been posting here on the blog, because I haven't been posting comics lately- just some Character Overviews on my Facebook Page. Once I figure out how I want to put them up here, I will do such. Also, I will have a rambly sort of blog post soon...but for now, this week's comic:

The Illest

I do feel the need to state that Evan is not actually this big of a jerk. And, sadly, we do not actually have a pizza bazooka at work. (not yet, anyway).


Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I feel like a bunch of suckers...

Yes. If you don't want a glimpse into the real Emily White, you should just leave now. (It's gonna get gross.)
I am having a bit of a poopy time in life right now. That is all fine and natural, an ebb and flow of good shit and bad shit. At least it is rarely stagnant shit. Yes. Get that mental image all up in your dome. Don't forget the smell. is normally easy for me to look at the crap of life with a big ol' shit eating grin on my face, because I am a clown and that is what we fucking do. Laugh at shit. All the shit. I do this on a daily basis. Some days are easier than others. Some people and places and faces are easier than others. But what I am not so used to doing is translating this "negative humor" into something relative to most people and not...ugly. Something we can ALL laugh at. Because I do not wish to carry, use, or propagate negativity, really. I believe it to be more like a raw material, some unprocessed, uncured, uncut, potent energy that we are supposed to mold to our own best purposes. Not the EASIEST purposes, but the BEST ones.
Fuh...I am rambling, and it is getting preachy. Sorry. I guess what I am trying to say is that it is not always easy to be funny, but I try for the sake of consistency of output and my deep and ever-growing (although slightly narcissistic) love for this Dorkling monster I have created and continue to feed...Here's a picture:

Go shopping and support my funny bone! (It likes to eat a lot of chocolate, which can get fairly pricey...haha) can be done ad nauseum at Thank you and good night! *bows*

Dorkling Prints and Monster Wallets (+ hilarity)

So...this post is not a comic. Sorry. (Not sorry). This is where I plug my handmade wares and all my comic prints and books. I mean, c'mon, I gotta eat. You may think that malnutrition would make me more random and hilarious, but...all it does is make me mean and stupid. So...Anyway, I've been in a sewing sort of mood lately, and made up some awesome monster wallets for utilization in a fashion type way...Here is a pic, and the link below that will take you to the listings and purchase info (and more pics!!):

Monster Wallets, hand sewn by Em!!

ALSO- I have a few assorted Dorkling prints listed! You can now have your very own little Emily at hand to make you smile! Hooray! I am slinging them individually for $5 apiece, or the entire set of all 6 prints for $23 (good deal, good deal, plus you save on shipping). So...Oh, yes, details: these are postcard size prints (4.25" x 5.6") on glossy 120lb cardstock. They are signed. And I rubbed my butt on all of them, too. Just kidding. That will of course cost you extra. So...check the prints, possibly purchase the prints, share the links to the prints, support your friendly neighborhood crazy girl!!

Dorkling Prints- sets and singles!
