Number 5 and Stonewall Honor!

Another rejected comic from the New Yorker which I wrote about here.

I woke up very early this morning because our picture book STRONG won a Stonewall Honor from the American Library Association!

After the announcement, I was in a stupor partly from tiredness and also from the knowledge that in a time when LGBTQ+ books are being banned across the country, this acknowledgment means so much. Teachers and librarians are the backbone of the book world, they’re on the front lines facing unbelievable opposition. I’m so proud of our book and librarians work diligently to keep our stories visible and accessible to all. There’s so much to fight for right now I often feel crushed by exhaustion.

But today I will celebrate.



My first animation!

Our book STRONG releases today!! I made my first animation to celebrate! My schedule is packed for years to come (with lots of comics!) so it was exciting to carve out time to try something new.

I’ve signed copies of STRONG at Books Inc Palo Alto and Alameda as well as Bel and Bunna in Lafayette.


Also, tomorrow May 11th, I will virtually present about my path to art and comics with the Contra Costa library. You can register for this free event here.


I hope you have a wonderful week.
