I have been asking Kate Beaton to draw a Red Sonja cover for the monthly book since issue one. Since she hasn’t done a lot of covers, she was the ONLY female artist we asked who (reluctantly) turned us down.
I think she has agreed to do one if time permits, and she sent this on Twitter to hold us over and I just love it. Kate, you are awesome!
This needs to happen. Kate Beaton is amazing. Red Sonja is amazing. I would actually love to see Kate do a Red Sonja Hark A Vagrant
Obviously I had to get some new records to go with the new record player. #LykkeLi #vinyl
One of my favorite t shirts ever. #NatalieDee

Regarding street harassment
I’ve seen a lot of posts recently regarding street harassment, and how men don’t always see it/realize it happens, and up until yesterday I was a part of that group. Yesterday, I was walking around NYC with a female friend of mine, and one of those aspiring musicians came up to us and tried to give us a CD (for a small donation of course). He assumed we were married, and I, not thinking anything of it, said we weren’t, nor were we together in any romantic capacity. The second he found that out, he started talking about how hot she was. As she’s older than I am, she joked that she was my mom and he was like “No way, you’re a hot mom!” and shit like that. It was just such a bizarre experience that as soon as he realized she wasn’t “mine”, it became ok, in his mind, to hit on her. So yeah, it’s a problem, people. If I have to pretend to be married to a female friend just so she won’t get harassed in the streets, I will. But I shouldn’t have to. Have some fucking respect douchebags on the street.
