CUTEWENDY is another one of those things that was sort of created by accident. It was originally designed to fill up space. I had a comic called "Wendy", which was a somewhat detailed comic I guess, and I only had time to draw a new episode once a week. My publisher wanted me to update my site at least three times a week, so I decided to create a comic I could draw really quickly, to fill the other two days. It could be another "Wendy" comic, except with a cuter version of its main character. Hey! "Cutewendy!" Brilliant!
And so I hammered out two comics a week, directly via a digital tablet, with no thumbnailing, penciling, or much thought in general beforehand. That's how it was at first, anyway. And the comic's premise was essentially "Hey, these characters are cute, so wouldn't it be ironic and stuff if they acted offensive... and stuff?"
As time progressed, I figured out better things to do with the comic, and as I was going through a terrible case of overthinking, floundering, and sputtering about with my "main" Wendy comic, I found myself enjoying the freespirited work with Cutewendy more and more. In the end, it became the more successful Wendy comic of the two. It was more entertaining, had generally happier readers, an actual ending, and a book collection.
Which is not to say it's my most fantastic work. It's a pretty mixed bag, to be honest. If you attempt to read these archives, you'll find some winners, some mediocre comics, and some pretty awful crap. The nature of the comic lends itself to these kinds of risks.
In any case, about a year after the comic ended, I took the concept of Cutewendy, built a solid story and setting around it, and the result was Girly. And yes, there we go.
