my kitty love

Our kitty Zimmy has been going through a host of health issues. I am trying be realistic while maintaining hope.

Meanwhile, I will be exhibiting at the Menlo Park Library Comicon on Saturday – please come by if you’re around! And today my first auto bio #comic was released on the Nib.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

words resist

Download the 8.5×11 page here and page 1 here, page 2 here.

Our dedicated activist helps an artist hang a sign and they celebrate with a high five!

These are free, downloadable coloring pages. This is how I resist – by telling stories and creating art. I hope this will be a tool to help parents and teachers talk about protesting, fighting the good fight and loving each other. Obviously there is no age limit – anyone can download and color these pages.

I do have a request – if you color this page, please take a photo and share it in the comments. I’d love to see it!

Thank you, always, for your support. We will get through this with love.

this is india

Do you remember the first positive representation of your home country? The lead character in my debut, PASHMINA, Priyanka is introduced to India in one of my favorite pages. I will be sharing a few sneak peeks before its release in October.

I remember inking this page not sure if I could convey what I wanted – but when I added color it came together.

I hope you have a happy weekend!

mother’s day cards

We have put a lot of cards on sale, including our two remaining Mother’s day cards.

Also, I am happy and humbled that Pashmina was included in Teen Vogue’s list “8 YA Books with Powerful Stories about being South Asian.”

alaskan adventure

I am off to Alaska on Friday for a mini-con and camping with cartoonists! I’m nervously excited. If you’re in Juneau, please come by!

when we spend our whole day providing comfort, it’s hard to resist comfort food <3
