for your hair

kiss my… !

Another comic I created based on true events on the ipad with procreate. I’ve uploaded some process videos on youtube.

I hope you have a good day!

 

the sun is also a star

One of my favorite books from the few books I read for my book club last year was The Sun is Also a Star. I drew this quick drawing of the main characters, Natasha and Daniel.

I hope you have a lovely week!

where’s the pasta?

 

A quick comic I drew last night based on our current reality. We’re attempting to be healthy and it’s hard! 

nihara + new items

I’m back from a whirlwind trip to Anaheim for Wondercon. We released some new products there that are now in the shop – a limited edition cupcake warrior tote bag and snuggling sea turtle notepads. Every purchase over $15 will received a free calendar (while supplies last).

  

I hope you have a great week!

As I travel and am away from my drawing equipment more and more, I decided to invest in an ipad and apple pencil. I started to play with an app that tons of my artist friends have been raving about – procreate. Last night I discovered that it records the creation process! I’m sharing it here:

Tomorrow I will be speaking at St. Victors in San Jose with Gene Yang, if you’re around please join us.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Another commission that I love – it’s all I have time for between my book projects and preparing for Emerald City Comicon. I will be exhibiting at booth 409 with the supremely talented Lyla Warren who will have a slew of seedlings for sale.

I will also speak on a few panels about Pashmina. I hope to see you in Seattle.

Stay strong & hopeful.

san francisco streets (and signing)

My first custom illustration of the year and I was so happy with how it turned out!

I will be speaking and signing copies of PASHMINA at Books Inc (Laurel Village)  in San Francisco this Sunday. I hope to see you there!

Also, my comic Eggs was reprinted today in Mutha Magazine (appeared originally in the Nib).

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

 

speak to resist

 

 

I hope that in a small way these free images can help others, continue the conversation and create community around the honest belief that we all deserve to be treated with kindness and respect. I pull myself out of fear by reading, painting and writing. Stay strong, stay loud and keep resisting.

I’ve also made Spanish versions of each poster with the help of a friend who translated for me. You can find them here for free. Download and use in your home, school, or library.

We will get through this with love.
