Last year, Deviant Life pin-ups became my way of showing extra appreciation to my handful of Patreon supporters. As the first patron exclusive pin up becomes a year old, I figure that’s a reasonable length of exclusivity and will now start posting pin-ups publicly for everyone to enjoy. Since some, like August 2018’s above, were particularly not work safe, I’ve opted to censor it here on the main page but you can click through to get to the uncensored version.
This is my favorite holiday because it’s about letting imagination run wild, celebrating the dark and macabre, confronting fears, expanding our comfort zone, and exploring ourselves through the identities we choose to slip into for a night.
I hope everyone has the Halloween experiences they desire, so long as it’s all in good fun and no harm is done.
On that note, remember that wearing a costume is not inherently consent to be touched no matter how sexy or skimpy it is, people who are intoxicated cannot consent, and if someone gives you any indication that they’re not enjoying their interactions with you then you should back off. We’re supposed to be pretending to be fantasy monsters, not actually being real monsters.
That said, get out there and make some memories.

While the ongoing comic strips will still be black and white, I felt like we needed to go the extra mile for our Patreon sponsors and make the monthly pin-ups, which $3+ patrons will receive digitally and $10+ patrons will receive physical prints of, in color.
Of course, every dealer in vice knows the principle of The First One Is Free so this one is for everyone digitally. $10+ patrons who pledge by the end of July will get a physical copy of this one as a bonus along with the August patron only pin up.
Remember, if we meet our first Patreon goal of $100 per month, we will start putting out Deviant Life strips every week instead of every other week.
