Sorry, my dears, Vixens Vendredi is running late this week.  I haven't forgotten about you, I've just had my hands full between two jobs and trying to get the pages done for the other story I'm drawing right now. Hope you're having a lovely Winter Solstice.

Mystery box

A messenger brings a puzzle box to Woolcott's Millinery.

Who could have sent it? What could it contain?

And will the Vixens be able to solve the puzzle in time?

It's a good thing Emma keeps a set of lockpicks handy.

En garde

Miss Quinn reverse-engineers the Red Sigma death ray, and invents a sheilding device. But will it be enough to protect her and her teammates, or will Red Sigma's scientist come up with even more sinister technology?

Woolcott's Millinery and Haberdashery

The Woolcott family has owned and operated their shop for three generations.

The current shop is located at a quiet intersection at the edge of town, and certainly does not have a secret underground passage to any brick outbuildings.

The outlandish rumours about the shop and its proprietors are, of course, only rumours and hearsay.

Mind you, if one were to find oneself on desperate trouble, without hope of rescue or remedy, and if one were to drop a note about said trouble on the floor of the shop ... Well, who knows what might happen?

Entirely by coincidence, of course.

Apologies, my dears, this week's Vixens Vendredi is a bit late getting off the ground. But where I am, it is still Friday, at least while I am writing this.

For this week, we get a look at a few of Emma's hat design concepts.

It has been one of those weeks where everything got a little bit away from me. I've been busy with other projects, and trying to find (more) work, and in the meantime trying to make do with what I've got by loading lots of items to my eBay store ( for those of you keeping score at home.)

I'll try to make sure next week's Vixens Vendredi has a little more substance and polish.

Perhaps starting with the hat decorated with a miniature robot hummingbird.

Until next week, my lovelies.

Philip Woolcott - not just a pretty face

Getting a look at Philip Woolcott, proprietor (on paper) of Woolcott's Millinery, and leader (in the reports) of the Steampunk Vixens.

But he's not just a pretty face with puppy-dog eyes. He's an engineer almost as smart as Kelly, and a sharp-shooter almost as dangerous as Violet.

Emma taught him to play chess when he was little, and he's pretty good at it.

She recruited him to the team when he finished school, and they often work as a team in the field.

They developed a sign language code when they were children, and still use it for secret messages during missions, or to communicate when there's a risk of the bad guys overhearing them.

The plot thickens

Vixens Villain's Vendredi

This week, we get a look at the local leader of Red Sigma. He's the one we see. The actual leaders are a secret cabal that control things from behind the scenes. He commissioned the death ray at their orders, from the scientist that they brought to him.

He's a chess master, and a dangerous swordsman. Elegant, calm, and entirely sociopathic.

Introducing Vixens Vendredi

On Vixens Vendredi, through the magic of the time-distillation telegraph device invented by Kelly Quinn, you can ask questions directly to the team members --- and they will reply to you.

What would you like to know?

Off hiatus

Had to put this one on the back burner for a while due to other projects and life in general. These things always take longer than you think they're going to.

In the meantime, I've been figuring out a bunch of back story and making plans. Not much interesting to see, but this project is still alive in case anyone is wondering.

Baby steps

I've been super-busy with other projects, but I've still been working away at this, mostly behind the scenes on stuff like plot and pacing for issue one.

In the meantime, I've done some sketching, and a little bit of graphic design. Because hey, a twitter profile photo that is not an egg is progress. Why not follow us at

Here's a bit of what's in store.

Character design, Emma Woolcott, team leader and the brains of the outfit. She can use her charm to get people to tell secrets they didn't know they knew ... but it doesn't work on family.

Concept sketch, Philip Woolcott, younger brother of Emma. People give him credit for Emma's genius, despite his best efforts to deflect it and convince them Emma's the real brains. He's generally apologetic and deferential to Emma as a result of this.

Concept sketch Kelly Quinn, engineer, inventor, and all-around genius. She dressed as a boy so she could go to school, and that's where she met Philip, who recruited her to the team.

Concept sketch Violet, most dangerous human alive. Observant and insightful. And with a past that she doesn't discuss.

It's alive!

After laying around on the back burner for a couple of years (ever since this post), my Steampunk Vixens comic is finally getting under way. I'm in pre-production now, tidying up environment and character back stories.

Fingers crossed, and with any luck I'll actually be able to pull this off.
