Hello and welcome! 

Me:

I'm Lillian, known by a number of aliases, including Smoking Sheep, SmokingSheepArt. I'm the artist equivalent of a fat little gremlin nosily banging on a pot and screeching into the night.

My interests include occultism, horror, curly haired Jewish men, cute sheep, reptiles, Euro beat and Italio disco and a huge list of other junk.

What I'm doin':


I'm working on a comic, Comedy of the Carrion Angels (CoTCA), which can be viewed and read on Comic Fury and Tapas. CoTCA is an occult comic aimed at an 18+ audience, focusing on Jewish themes and Jewish horror, while attempting to marry it with Satanism and mainstream occultism. My goal is to create a story that isn't so black-and-white in it's perspective, but also a more interesting exploration of Jewish themes, identity and symbols that are often portrayed from a Christian view. It's also it's own thing, asides from the heavy occult and religious themes, huge underlying themes are crime, existentialism, family drama and fatherhood.
With your pledge, I can commit to my comic full time.

Goals for the comic:

  1. Entertaining you, the audience, and being able to commit 100%
  2. Merchandise (shirts, stickers, etc.)
Long term goals:
  1. Digital and physical editions 
  2. Animated short (Extremely unlikely, but still something I want to pursue in the future.)
One of my long-term goals is the chance at getting a professional animated short or show, with Lionel voiced by Jonathan Pryce (whom of which I based Lionel off his performance as Mr. Dark in Something Wicked This Way Comes).
While I realize this is an unlikely and possibly unrealistic goal, it's something that I ultimately wish for.

What I'm not:

  • I do NOT want to be a comic artist who takes a 3 year hiatus and never finishes their project.
  • I do NOT want to produce 1 comic page a week, or every few weeks.
  • I do NOT want to spend 2 years on a comic and only have 12 pages done.

What I do want:

  • I DO want to produce at least a chapter a month.
  • I DO want to produce at least 3-5 pages a week.
  • I DO want to dedicate my time to this project.
My current struggles:
My father had a stroke in September 2017, so I have to manage and do a lot of his business (paperwork, taxes, etc.) as well as care for him (cook, maintain the house). This limits my time. I also was diagnosed with GAD and chronic depression in 2015, but need to be tested for OCD and/or bipolar disorder, but cannot due to lack of health insurance. I also need to be tested for PCOS, which I can't do without health insurance either. My main issues are health related and may or may not significantly effect my page output/work pace.

With all this in mind, I hope you will consider supporting the production of COTCA!
