first day of school

art for good 100 drawing challenge

I could let the ocean of bad news swallow me whole. My toes, ankles and knees are submerged. I keep my body up and dry with art. Art is my raft and although it cannot save me from everything, it gives me hope. As more human rights are stripped away by a callous government I am desperate for hope.
Tomorrow, June 28th, I will attempt to create 100 original drawings in a day to raise money for charity similar to the ink drawings above, made in 2016. I am placing my work obligations on hold because resisting and connecting is far more important. Each drawing will be available for sale and every dollar of the sale (less shipping) will be donated here. In order to do this I set a few parameters – each drawing will be in black ink with gold and red embellishments. Each will have a character plus something (animal, object, etc). They will not be named but numbered. Each drawing will be posted immediately, with the help of my office manager Nickole, here.
Lastly, I will take suggestions. Email, tweet or comment and I will do my best to create based on your suggestions. I will need your help. I will post process, WIPs, and perhaps even some live videos on instagram.
I need to create art. I need to build a raft of hope with you.
Let’s fight the good fight together.

for your hair

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!

starting with love

I painted this watercolor on New Year’s Eve… which has never meant much to me but it’s always nice to have a break. I’ve been reconnecting with my sketchbook, which has been lovely.

Happy new year!

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 it in a way that didn’t focus on the day of loss but instead on the before and after. For me those are the times that take the longest to process.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely week.
