i am thrilled to share that we welcomed our daughter home a few days ago. we will be prioritizing her over the next few months so the hubbahubba will be manning our san diego comicon table at small press O-13 with some friends while i stay home with the baby.

if you’re attending comicon i hope you will stop by and say hello to him! we have original wood burnings, watercolors, a limited edition giraffe tee and limited edition brooches as well as a huge selection of prints.

we hope you have a lovely day!

bodhisattva

Share      

bodhisattva

At the beginning of the year I was commissioned to create 3 buddhist illustrations. At first I was incredibly nervous because it was religious. I had never done anything like this and I didn’t want to make any mistakes or missteps. The person who commissioned me wanted to interpret the bodhisattvas in a modern context and with my style. Once I let go of my nerves I really enjoyed the work! One of the benefits of my job is that I learn so much while I work, and in this case I learned about the Earth Store Bodhisattva. I will share the other two bodhisattvas in the coming weeks.

Also, if you’re in San Francisco this weekend I will be vending at the SF Etsy Summer Emporium, come by and say hello!

I hope you have a lovely week!

Italy travel comics

Share      

It’s been 3 years since the hubbahubba and I took a long vacation. To celebrate his official move to working full-time for Everyday Love Art (woohoo!) AND completing the thumbnails for Pashmina (it took a year!) we decided to tour Italy. He’s 3/4 Italian and Italy has always be high on both of our lists to visit! While we were traveling around I drew a few comics to capture some of our experiences.

sleeplessflight

We took 2 flights to get to Rome and immediately boarded a train to Florence. Neither of us can sleep well on planes.

buongiorno

The first morning was magical as we woke to the bells of the Duomo in Florence.

mosquitomasterpiece

But Florence wasn’t kind to us. Jet lagged, we created mosquito gut masterpieces at 3am instead of sleeping or snuggling.

foccaciaandyou

Finally adjusted to the time, we toured Genoa. With a piece of foccacia, cobble stone streets and his hand in mine we both fell in love with Italy.

makepasta

We spent a good portion of our time in Cinque Terre. Every vista and meal was a delight. I decided that if hubbahubba REALLY loved me he would learn how to make pansotti (and all pastas) ^_^

trenitalia

I enjoyed taking the train from city to city, drawing and writing postcards.

Another 2 flights home, nursing a cold and jet lagged I was so tired. I needed to brush my teeth before sleeping but couldn’t find the energy… ^_^

Overall our trip was wonderful. Sometimes when we plan things into 2016 it feels very overwhelming – it was so nice to stop, take a break and enjoy the simple things in life.

I hope you’re having a happy Monday!
