Today’s edition of “Words From Good Art Doodz” is from the preposterously talented Emilja Frances. You might remember Emilja as “the first human consciousness uploaded to a computer,” paving the way for things like “the cloud” and “penicillin,” but after all the fanfare and award ceremonies, Bill Gates unceremoniously forgot about ol’ Emilja in a room under the Pentagon. What has Emilja been up to all this time since we were promised this new computerized way of living would “guarantee you live forever” and “spit in God’s smug, unruly face?” Making a ton of rad-as-fuck comics! We are so lucky to have talked Emilja into joining the As You Were crew, and we’ve been dying to interview this electronic marvel. Turns out the Pentagon is like, stupid easy to sneak into. We found good ol’ Emilja in a room marked with a crude hand-drawn “robots” sign, and proceeded to get the scoop, and steal Henry Kissinger’s Gmail password. 
Read on to find out what she’s been reading, what she draws, and why her dog is the most perfect creature ever.

it took me like three months to answer ion’s questions, and they’re maybe kind of rambly and not super clever answers, but… ta-da! i did an interview!

hey asheville, if you haven’t gotten a copy of As You Were yet, and you want one, i dropped some off at downtown books & news today! go buy them! they’re really good!

i have been leaving the house every day, taking hazel on long walks, being incredibly social and remembering how easy it is to do so when there are so many great people everywhere. swimming trips and coffee dates and punk shows, running into friends from four or six years ago and hugging and laughing like it was just yesterday.

but i am so grateful for the four difficult years i spent away from this city because they made me a much better, stronger person. i am finally ready to be home. i am finally home.

also v important: the light of my life.

A Comic about Idapalooza

georgiacapra:

I went to Ida this year and made a comic about it for Mask Magazine! Thank u emilja for the hookup. You can see the first page on here but then there is a (very very cheap) paywall.

my amazing friend made a beautiful comic for a wonderful magazine, you should probably check it out!!
