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.

resistance coloring page

Download 8.5×11 page here.

I feel beaten down and overwhelmed by the current political climate. But I’m determined to dig myself out – by sharing a story of love.

I welcome you to follow a girl and her journey to join the resistance. These are free, downloadable coloring pages. My aim is to post 24 this year, and if I can, I will create more. 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 two requests – if you color this page, please take a photo and share it in the comments. I’d love to see it!

Second, I want your suggestions. Who will this girl meet? What adventures will she have on her path to her first protest? I have my own ideas but I want to hear from you – I want this to be open and collaborative.

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

My theme for inktober is fall favorites. If you have a fall favorite you’d like to see my draw, leave a comment and I may draw it!

One of the things I enjoy the most about the inktober challenge is using color in harmony with the ink. I realized that if I don’t ink the outlines of all the elements (in this case the leaves), I can give the appearance of a foreground and middle ground. That means that the ink can pop forward and the color, even though its everywhere, has a more subtle quality.

grandma day

grandma today is my mother-in-law’s birthday. she’s an incredible person. she gives everyone the benefit of the doubt – even if they’re obviously wrong. i’ve learned so much by observing who she is, how she accepts people and her positive attitude. being part of her family feels like a gift. she’s aretired pre-school teacher.she has hundreds of songs memorized, knowledge about great books and activities to do with children and an open, loving heart. when our baby spends time with her we joke that it’s pre pre-school. i’m so happy that her influence is all around. happy birthday, grandma! <3
