inktober

The free spirit ($45, available) The adventurer (sold) Inktober is one of my favorite artist community activities. I will participate as much as I can this year (not daily because I’ll be on the road most of the month). Here’s my first two… it’s been a very long time since I’ve drawn things just for […]

eggs

My most personal comic about eggs and my first pregnancy is on the Nib. I want to be clear that I am not anti-vegan nor am I making any correlations between protein and pregnancy. I used eggs as a vehicle to share my experience. I needed to make this comic and I needed to make […]

a starred review

Making PASHMINA was one of the hardest things I’ve done in my career so far. To wake up to read a professional review of it in the School Library Journal (a starred one, none the less) is a feeling I cannot describe. I am so very excited to share PASHMINA with you – we’re less […]

paint to resist + sale

My sleep is riddled with nightmares these days. When I wake, I shake my head because they’re rooted in reality. I look around and although I am safe, fed and loved; I question its permanence. The rise of hate makes me feel unsafe in my own skin. When I walk down the street I am […]
