Scary Godmother doll on Kickstarter

Thu Aug 22, 2013, 9:50 AM
Jill Thompson is looking for people who will back her project of making a jointed Scary Godmother doll.

Do you like Jill's work? Do you love Scary Godmother? Are you just fond of dolls?
(Obviously, all three go for me, so I have jumped on the bandwagon as soon as I heard of this project's existence...)

You would make 755 people (and counting) happy by contributing, if you have some monies to spare :).

Ms. Sigune, I would just like to take this opportunity to compliment you on producing some of the best Arthurian art I have seen, that neatly manages the tricky feat of balancing what we might call the classic Arthurian spirit with an aesthetic adhering more closely to what we might call The Age of Arthur - the troubled twilight years of Roman Britannia before the Saxons overthrow their rivals.

 Might I be so bold as to ask if you have ever read any of the works produced by Mistress Rosemary Sutcliff? (the late, great author of 'Sword at Sunset' one of the best Arthurian novels I have read and many more books quite as good!); I ask in part because of her modest contributions to the great body of Arthurian literature, but also because I think your style of art would compliment her style of fiction as well.:) (Smile) 

 Once again, please accept my compliments because both you and the work that you have produced really do deserve them!Nod

You are very kind! :D

I'm afraid I'm really an amateur, and all I have got going for myself is that both meanings of 'amateur' apply to me. If I manage to get my love for this material, these characters and this period across, I can be happy :). This story is my passion and I'm very invested in it.

Rosemary Sutcliff is one of my favourite authors, and has been since I was thirteen or so. When I was a child, I adored her Arthurian trilogy (which was one of the main inspirations of my, um, first Arthurian phase), and Sword at Sunset is definitely one of my absolute favourites as an adult. It's a novel that makes me feel very small indeed when I'm working on my comic :P.

Thank you very much for your kind words! It always warms the heart to hear of someone who likes what you do. :)

That holds true even when all that you can do is offer compliments to those more artistically gifted than yourself!;) (Wink) 

 (Also stick-figures; but that stretches my drawing abilities to the outer limits of their potential).

 I must admit that my enthusiasm for Mistress Sutcliff was recently renewed (I think that I never lost it, but DID forget it for a while) after I discovered 'Sword at Sunset' in my local library; it's probably my favourite 'Historical' vision of Arthur, with the only major vice that I can detect in it being a distinct lack of Merlin (although I suspect that Mistress Sutcliff had two good reasons: one being that Merlin did not join up with Arthur until much later in the development of the Mythic Cycle and the other being that something in the old imp, perhaps a sense of mischief in the magic and madness, makes it far too easy and fun to turn him into a figure more comic than is strictly sensible).

 I am very glad to hear that you enjoy her numerous works and would be interested in hearing which are your own favourites (beyond the Arthurian works, which given your expressed interests is far too easy a choice to guess!): my own are in no particular order 'The Armorer's House' 'Sun Horse, Moon Horse' 'Warrior Scarlet' 'The Mark of the Horse Lord' 'The Witches Brat' 'Brother Dusty Feet' 'Frontier Wolf' 'The Lantern Bearers' 'Sword at Sunset' and 'Dawn Wind'.

 Looking at that rather long list makes me relieved to know that I have already included her on the list of 'Favourite Authors' in my personal profile!
