the Rainbow Duo

A comic about the adventures of two gay stick figures in love ...


Rainbow Duo update

It's been a little over 4 months since we launched this website and what fun it has been so far! Back in December we only had 3 comics to show you and now we are proud to say we have 8 (including the upcoming comic, which will be posted on Monday). We hope there will be many more to follow!

We sure have enough ideas to keep going for a long time, the only problem sometimes is finding the time to actually get creative and make the comics. The thinking up of actual storylines and dialogue we have pretty much down to a nice routine. With this I mean we have a few drinks and then the ideas just keep flowing!

Then comes the time consuming part of actually drawing the entire thing and I think Heidi's doing an amazing job with it (yeah, I know, I'm a little biased, but don't you agree it looks really great?).

A while back lesbian website eurOut were kind enough to feature the Rainbow Duo as their website of the week, which we thought was really cool!

It's really nice to see people are enjoying our comic! If you like our comic and haven't declared this publicly yet (but would like to. And why wouldn't you?), please like our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter.

These are also the places to keep up to date on the latest comics and other news about the Rainbow Duo. If you can't get enough of us, we also have a Flickr account where we try to post background photos (whenever we get around to updating it).

We hope you will continue to enjoy reading our Rainbow Duo comics as much as we enjoy creating them!

Welcome to the Rainbow Duo!

Hi there,

Thanks for checking out our website. We're really excited to now have a home for our comic! The Rainbow Duo was created a few months ago when my girlfriend and I were brainstorming about what kind of creative things we could do. She had been leaving me drawings with stick figures, saying things like "we are the rainbow", meaning we're so very gay. We thought, why not give those gay stick figures some stories, some adventures? That's when the idea of the Rainbow Duo was born.

So far, we only have 3 comics, but we're looking forward to creating many more in the next weeks and months. The process is usually that we come up with a topic together and decide on a general storyline. Then I make up some dialogue, while Heidi does the actual drawing of the comic. The adventures of the Rainbow Duo are loosely based on our real life experiences. That is to say, we tend to get ourselves into plenty of funny, stupid and/or embarrassing situations from which we can draw inspiration. For example, we did really get lost in a corn field (see our first comic: Lost in Corn), which is no fun I tell you. However, with some comics the story comes out better when some fiction is added.

We hope you will enjoy reading our comics (and tell all your friends about it!) and come back often. If you want to keep up to date on what's going on with the Rainbow Duo or when our new comic is posted, you can sign up for the RSS feed or follow us on twitter (@rainbowduo).

Take care,
Natascha and Heidi
