Limited edition re-releases

I’m rereleasing a small batch of these limited edition prints that I created years ago for different relief efforts, Maya and Kapatid. The proceeds will go to the Equal Justice Initiative. These images will no longer be available for purchase after they have sold out!

Thank you for your support and I hope you have a restful weekend.

Most of the time our kid is rainbows and curiosity but often (okay, daily) there are… moments. We love her through it but whew! They can be pretty intense.

I hope you’re all well.

I’ve added this print to the shop and today is the last day of my shop sale for cards or magnets for $2 (no coupon required).

Meanwhile, yesterday I finished coloring my next graphic novel, Jukebox.

I had the story idea in 2014. I pitched and sold it in 2017. I began inking in January 2019. It took 1.5 years to draw and color. It’s 210 pages in full color. Making a graphic novel is an intense and lonely process. I fell in love with my main characters, Shaheen and Tannaz. Two brown girls on a time traveling adventure. I felt their confusion, pain and joy. While working on Jukebox, it’s like living with them. And today, I feel relieved, tired, proud and honestly, sad. My sadness is tempered because I know I’ll meet them anew when readers discover their story next year.

For now, I am going to take a short break before diving back into more book making.

I hope you have a lovely week.

I am listening. I am processing and thinking of ways I can help. Donating, calling, amplifying and making art.

I will never allow hate and fear to stop me. I will keep creating and sharing love. I will never stop resisting in my words, paintings and acts of kindness.

Keep creating, stay committed, stay fierce!

ink drawings

After much consideration (and many requests, thank you!) I’ve decided to make prints of some of my ink drawings.

As this pandemic continues, I try to plan my work and life keeps disrupting it. I have 3 books due by the summer so while I’m working, if I have time for more videos, ink drawings, coloring pages, I will make them. And if I don’t, that’s okay too.

I hope you’re keeping sane and safe.

Thank you for your support, always.

To celebrate and honor Mother’s day this year I am auctioning original ink drawings on Instagram. The auction will benefit Break the Cycle, which is the only national non-profit working exclusively on preventing dating abuse and promoting healthy relationships.

Auction ends each day at midnight. Thank you for your support.
