1990, when I got married, I changed my last name, from Hagg (just in case you knew me as Steven Hagg and you’re wondering if I’m the same guy).

I’ve started this Patreon venture, if you want to see video tutorials and pinups, it starts as low as 1 dollar a month:

Rated M for strong language and nuditycover1

After working on this story for about ten years I’ve finally decided to pull the trigger – I’ve realized it’s very unlikely to ever become a movie or book or musical or opera, so I’m choosing a medium I’m comfortable with and can work for free in my spare time – a comic.  I also happen to love comics, I used to make them, yet haven’t made any in over 30 years…  so for me this is a kind of fond coming home.

This is the cover so far.  Disclaimer – I’ve worked it and reworked it, as part of experimentation and trying to find a style.  It’s been difficult for me to find a balance between line and color, I think I’ve found it but I thought that before.  This means it may still be a work in progress.

It’s supposed to show the protagonist in a symbolic quandary, indicative of her over-arching distress of not being fully human:  she loves music, just like we do.  She’s tried to play the blues on a guitar, but she pushed too hard and it broke.
