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!

hourly comics day

Every Feb 1st cartoonist participate in hourly comics day. I couldn’t finish my day because I was preparing for my artist residency at Disney, but I finally finished this week (while battling the flu!) so here it is! Also, hope to see you this weekend at Wonderground Gallery for my second weekend as their artist in residence.

Commission ad
I’m excited to announce a new type of commission. I wanted to increase the access to my commissions and reduce the cost. I’m releasing no background commissions – they start at $500 and are first come, first serve. I will release 10 slots at a time. Read more about them here.
I’m off for the weekend – back on Tuesday! Have a happy week!

independence day

Today is India’s independence day! This illustration is from 2011 (hard to believe!) which is around the same time that I was pitching Pashmina. Today I am finishing up the final step (copyediting) before sending over the entire book to my publisher – there will be minor changes along the way, but for all intents and purposes – I’m done!

And now I’ll start creating new illustrations – I have years of lovely moments that I can’t wait to draw ^_^

Happy, happy Monday!

happy valentine’s day

I granted permission to the Brightside to minimally animate my illustrations – it turned out beautifully! Happy Valentine’s day!

The hubbahubba was looking through my files and came across this custom illustrationfrom 2014 and he exclaimed “Hey, I’ve never seen this!” I forgot to share it soI am sharing it now ^_^ This couple wereengaged under a very unique treeand they wanted me to capture it. As with all commissions, I felt honored to work on something so meaningful.

hourly comics 2016

I participated for the first time in hourly comics yesterday. It’s an annual event where anyone can share a comic snapshot of their life. The goal is to draw a comic every hour! It was fun and challenging. I started the day off taking care of our daughter so that Nick could take a phone interview and ended in San Francisco with artists friends in our sketch group. I posted them “live” as I went along on social media and this morning I scanned them all to share with you!

Have a lovely Tuesday!
