TERESA WYMORE is drawn to powerful scenes of raw emotion and vignettes laced together with plots as old as the world — ambition, lust, revenge. Everyone is guilty of something. Even the heroes.
Teresa works as an author, illustrator, webcomic creator, personal trainer, and primal health coach.
In my day job I own a fitness studio. I’m a certified personal trainer and health coach. I also work as a recess supervisor, making sure kids from 5-12 years old are safe and having fun! I’ve worked in the corporate world as a t-shirt illustrator, graphic designer, copy editor, database developer, and web programmer. If I don’t have at least three jobs at any one time, I get bored.
But my real love is comics.
It all started with Marvel’s Tarzan and Savage Sword of Conan (SSOC) when I was 10. I once wrote a letter to the editor of SSOC complaining about the way the artists drew warrior men vs warrior women: the women were all limp-armed and big-boobed, even Red Sonja. How the hell could these women even lift a sword, let alone fight? The letter was published and the editor apologized, but “that’s the way the artists were used to drawing.”
Well, I could have pointed out the other ridiculous things, like Conan in a loin cloth with a fur hood in arctic weather or any battle armor that left abs bare. But I was a kid and a girl and wanted the same ridiculousness for the female heroes as for the male heroes.
So I started doing it myself, learning to pencil and ink from artists like John Buscema, Ernie Chan, and Alfred Alcala.
