choklit + houston

I’m embracing quick comics! I created this direct from life comic in 30 minutes and didn’t edit or change it from its original. I love the liberation in sharing work that hasn’t been redrawn.

Also I’m heading to Houston this weekend for the National Conference for Teachers of English  (and honored to be part of the South Asian Book Award, eee!) AND I have my only public signing of PASHMINA at Space Montrose Saturday night. It’s my last work trip of the year! I hope to see you there!

I hope you have a lovely weekend!

sf zine fest

The San Francisco Zine Fest is this Sunday. As the guest of honor (!!) I was invited to create the poster and the limited edition tee. I’m super happy with the tee and can’t wait to grab one!

I will also be doing a live reading at the San Francisco Public Library tonight in partnership with the zinefest.

I hope to see you either tonight or Sunday in the city!

Have a lovely week.

surprised

When I did the art for good challenge, many people sent ideas. My friend Briana, who owned Urban Bazaar in San Francisco (which was the first shop to carry my prints) asked me to draw a protester. She’s one of my favorite people, dedicated to good and a model for how to be intentional with your choices. When I got her request I decided to surprise her and drew her and her daughters protesting.

In turn, she surprised me by sharing her newest tattoo (!!!)

It’s my honor to do what I do and be surrounded by people like Briana. She lives far away now, but I’m so happy the distance hasn’t reduced our closeness – and this makes me feel even closer to her.

I hope you have a lovely day!
