Savage Nerdery

This week's Savage Love dealt with partners who, despite their best efforts to play along, just weren't the least bit interested in the other persons fantasies/scenarios, resulting in an unsatisfying experience for both (Get more details here). I initially sketched out a disinterested girl dressed up in a cheerleader's outfit, with a lecherous dude in schoolmaster's robes about to spank her. Then, a bolt from the blue hit me and led me down a different, much geekier path... I gave the spot a Star Wars theme instead.

Also, in a nice bit of serendipity, the idiotic Dwight sported the exact same toy lightsabre as part of his Sith Lord costume on The Office last night. I feel like someone must be looking out for me...but given the subject matter, I'm afraid to ask who!

Nice to see your work in our local paper. Cool drawing too. Is there an autobiographical slant to it, perchance?

That's right, you're in Detroit City, ain't'cha? Cool. Hope you dig the spots for as long as they'll have me.

Nothing autobiogaphical to the spot, really, except that I DO think the blue Jedi chick is hot.
