A very messy warm-up sketch of DickBabs
Let’s just try to ignore the painfully inaccurate anatomy, yeah?
Sometimes being a worder of comical books has its advantages, good lord!
The UPS guy just brought me a package of four beautiful, amazing, stunning, gorgeous pages of original BATGIRL art by Fernando Pasarin, that he has given to me as an unexpected gift. You guys probably know how highly I value this man’s art, he’s amazing, one of the best I have ever worked with. The whole team is great, but I wish you guys could see all the pencils, because the find detail is really astonishing.
He sent me the page above, my favorite page of Alysia and Babs in the entire series.
He also sent the first kiss between Ricky and Babs, The first page of Silver and Miss Targa in action when they meet Barbara, and an astounding page of Strix and Batgirl having a discussion in Barbara’s van.
They are so beautiful, I am overwhelmed. WOW!

"You can call me Babs if I can call you Dick!"
Let them think they have the upper hand over the little girl. Let them relax while the adrenaline leaks out of their systems. Let them believe they’re closing their grips on a shrinking violet. And when their guard is down and their pride is rising… let me kick their butts up around their ears.

"It’s okay, Barbara. It’s okay."
This relationship just… I’m incredibly devoted to stories about families, especially families of choice. And I’ve always sought out parental relationships to latch onto in narratives — those are almost always father-daughter stories by default. In comics, where it seems like parents are an endangered species, that goes even more so.
But the love between Barbara and Cassandra, the relationship of a mother-daughter between two women who are strong and independent but learn to lean on each other to make the best for one another? And to do so without blood being a factor?
It caught me off guard when I was young, and being older and able to better appreciate it in a time where I’m looking to adopt in the future? It… means a lot to me. I love them.
And to see Babs able to lean on Cass now after being so strong for her? It’s… really beautiful. Because I believe there is a time in the relationship of a mother and daughter where the daughter can be the pillar for her mother, too.

"People with disabilities for too long have been excluded from many of the experiences offered by national parks," said Larry Paradis, executive director of Disability Rights Advocates. “These range from watching a sunset from an oceanside beach, to visiting the redwoods, to walking a trail through wilderness, to visiting historic structures.
"This settlement provides a model for federal and state parks nationwide to be inclusive of all people in our community."
