I wear alot of black like Erika. Always have. Always will. This is me in High School having an Erika moment, choker and all. That "dress" is actually just a flimsy tank top with a belt. I basically went to school with no pants on. And this was way before I ever did drugs!
Speaking of Goth Girls, Elvira Mistress of the Dark and Queen of the Goth Chicks is one of Erika's influences. Issue 33 is the only other comic book besides Bathroom Girls where I am credited as a penciller. James Fry did the finishes which is why it looks professional. He was only pro to believe in me. He gave me the job, my first big break.
