One of the big ideas about how I do these comics has always been to integrate all the different aspects of things I’d like to make art about into one (Eventually, hopefully cohesive) whole. So, I don’t have a body of mainstream work and then a body of autobiographical stuff and a separate catalog of erotic stuff. It’s just all part of A Waste of Time. I figured that I could use my cartoon characters and my rabbit to put all these things together. It’s either a great idea that will make the comics unique and interesting, or a great way of shooting my career in the foot.
So, for example, we go from sexy boy drawings to drawings of maggots and flies. The hope would be to defy classification so that people aren’t just like, Oh, those comics are a gay thing, or they’re a sex thing, or whatever, they’re just comics. Of course, what I might also be doing is alienating the audiences that might, individually, be interested in the separate types of comics on their own. But I’d like to have more faith in my readers than that. People should read beyond their primary interests, and as an audience I don’t want artists to do what I tell them, I want artists to surprise me.
