How do you draw accurate, full lips?
Kara: “I’m not sure that we’ve ever gotten into specifics of how the lips are drawn – I really don’t think the lips are real. I think we always have been drawing full lips, but in terms of how they’re done. The actual body shape that [we] have – they are drawn to perfection. “I draw it that way, and I draw it so it looks perfect, I can’t even think of anything else. I draw all my characters very realistically, which is pretty hard. I can’t talk about what other people do with that detail – I’m really just going by my own experience with it, but it’s not something that anybody else comes even close to doing.”

It’s almost like I’m drawing them to look ‘natural.’ It’s funny, because if I drew something where I had a lip that didn’t exactly match me, I’d look like a freak in my own body (laughs).”
You’ve been drawing from people’s own lip models for a while now, what makes you want to start working with models as well?
Kara: “My mom is getting a tattoo, and she’s a tattoo artist. She asked me if I wanted to do a tattoo for her, and she actually said, ‘Oh, I’m drawing your lips.’ I actually said ‘No, come on, I’ll tattoo you.’ I actually said that. So I kind of wanted to think, ‘What if I did some work where she was drawing my actual lips in real time instead of a head shot?’ I thought that would bring a different sensibility to my drawing – and my drawing could also
