    What happens when women draw their own bodies in a medium that has represented them so poorly? 23 successful graphic artists share their illustrations and discuss how women are reshaping a form that has marginalized them nearly since its inception. 

    Really happy to be included in this lineup of ladies talking about female representation in comics. Thanks to Kristen Radtke for interviewing me!

    Here’s a more image-tastic post for that article! Super stoked to be included with so many cartoonists that I admire.

    Here’s my little quote that they used:

    “When I draw nudity, for the most part, I’m trying to make it commonplace, nothing out of the ordinary.” —Erika Moen

  5. By some WEIRD happenstance, a chicago based singles blog released an article that same night as my last comic… ABOUT GHOSTING! I think it’s a sign… either way I am glad that term and situation is getting out there - see the full article here: http://secretliveschi.com/2014/08/05/ghosting-dating-breakup/

    and my comic: http://thingsiveseenandheard.wordpress.com/2014/08/05/2877/

  8. So my friends, here is a story.

    One of the reasons I make comics and share them publicly, especially ones like this, is because I want someone else out there going through the same thing to realize you’re not alone.

    This particular story was drawn about two months ago, after my casual relationship with Greg, but it also applies perfectly to my most recent dating experience.  Actually… probably more so, because Dave was the best person I ever dated and felt like relationship was just around the corner.  But then just a few days ago … poof! gone.  I think this one hurt the most. (BTW, Happy Birthday Dave!)*

    Yes it sucks, yes you will sit at home and analyze over and over “what did i do?!?!”, “what did I say?!?!”, “what could i have done differently!!!”.  The answer is nothing.  And we all do this.  But ya know what?  IT’S NOT YOU.  Trust me.  When this happens remind yourself that it has nothing to do with you.  It is on them – mostly from lack of maturity and the inability to deal with conflict and confrontation.  Any of the other reasons do not matter.  (and both genders do this btw, not just dudes)

    Also, if you have done this… please stop.  It’s a thousand times worse to not know than to know.

    Ok well now that we’ve all turned on The Smiths and had a good cry about ourselves, go out and enjoy your life.

    Love Ya’ll

    - Rachel

    Forget the spreadsheet, here’s an easy flowchart to know if a women owes you sex

    Microsoft Excel took a turn for the explicit this week when the Internet learned the once-innocuous office tool was being used in a dispiriting new bro-trend: using the software to track of the number of times their partners refuse sex. Yes, #sexspreadsheets are a thing, presumably because some men still believe that owning of a penis entitles them to unlimited sexy times.

    Sorry, guys, that’s just not the way the world works | Follow micdotcom 

    sometimes i just cant believe this is the 21st century
