Might possibly be the episode cover, since it contains a shower scene. Or, might just be a picture of Lucy’s posterior. Either works for me 🙂
Thinking up stories is pretty easy. Everyone does it. The harder part is thinking up good ones. As I’ve worked on Lucy Lastique over the years I’ve often had ideas for other tales drift around in my head, but firstly I’ve not had the time to do them and secondly after a while cogitating on them, they’ve turned out to be not as good as I thought they were.
One bunch of related ideas have kept coming back to me though, especially as my own personal opinions on society and politics and relationships (and indeed sex) have evolved over time. In a sense I’m not the same person as the one who started Lucy Lastique, over a decade ago. Lucy has changed with me to some extent, but it also has a certain innate “character” which defines it, in the same way as, say, Star Trek has a certain character to it and when it veers away from that, it is broken. So these ideas for some stories that would explore these issues and speculations, distinct from what is possible and desirable in the Lucyverse, keep wandering back into my head. They’re more grounded in reality and tend to take place in the much nearer future from the present day onwards, and they’re kind of a suite of different ideas around that. But they’ve also never quite gelled together. But you know how something keeps niggling at you..?
So, at the moment as I’ve said before I’m working hard to get Lucy back into production. I did the following drawing really as a diversion and as general practice more than anything else, but it was also a fun exercise in realising potential characters visually for one of these other stories, the working title of which is, er, “The Hot Wives Club”. Heh.
