Even though it didn’t work out in the end, Im glad I had the experience
So like I said last time (two months ago! AH!) my printer was messed up but I finally fixed it WHICH MEANS… <3 <3 <3 !COMICS! <3 <3 <3 Todays comic is brought to you by people who pretend to like you and then disappear:
So my friends, here is a story.
One of the reasons I make comics and share them publicly, especially ones like this, is because I want someone else out there going through the same thing to realize you’re not alone.
This particular story was drawn about two months ago, after my casual relationship with Greg, but it also applies perfectly to my most recent dating experience. Actually… probably more so, because Dave was the best person I ever dated and felt like relationship was just around the corner. But then just a few days ago … poof! gone. I think this one hurt the most. (BTW, Happy Birthday Dave!)*
Yes it sucks, yes you will sit at home and analyze over and over “what did i do?!?!”, “what did I say?!?!”, “what could i have done differently!!!”. The answer is nothing. And we all do this. But ya know what? IT’S NOT YOU. Trust me. When this happens remind yourself that it has nothing to do with you. It is on them – mostly from lack of maturity and the inability to deal with conflict and confrontation. Any of the other reasons do not matter. (and both genders do this btw, not just dudes)
Also, if you have done this… please stop. It’s a thousand times worse to not know than to know.
Ok well now that we’ve all turned on The Smiths and had a good cry about ourselves, go out and enjoy your life.
*Don’t be mean to comic artists!
So i finished my most recent comic but sadly my printer and scanner have decided to not work, so it may take a while before we see it :(
Until then, here are some sneak previews
obviously its crappy looking, but Ill upload the finished comic as soon as I get my scanner working!

New comic! More sad girl stuff! The title of this comic is : SRSLY GUYS – WHY – WHY IS EVERYONE DUMB – INCLUDING ME
All of the words are from ‘Crave You’ by Flight Facilities, and I suggest listening to this while reading through
This past saturday I did an artist talk about me and my work at Beauty and Brawn Gallery and Think Space. It wasn’t recorded, but last fall I did a lecture for Laydeez Do Comics-Chicago, and they DID record, and this I forgot about it and then I just remembered!
If you scroll down you can listen to the recording!
CHICAGO ZINE FEST IS THE WEEKEND EEEEFFFFF YEAH
Make sure to be there early on Saturday because last year I sold out in TWO HOURS!!!!!
This year I am on the upper floor, but i am RIGHT in front of the elevators, so it’s all good!
CANT WAIT TO SEE YA’LL
But just in case you can’t make it, I will also have my books and wares the next day, Sunday March 16th, at
Which is kind of like Renegade, only specifically for artists who produce “multiples” like prints, books, etc.
Hope you can make it out but if not I’ll probably love you anyway

LISTEN TO ME TALK ABOUT COMICS!!!!!
I’ve been working on this stupid mini-comic ALL FLIPPIN DAY – so you better buy a copy at Chicago Zine Fest next week! or else.
Holy MOLEY i have just had a whirlwind of press and accolades since my art show opening on February 8th!!!!
First i found out i was featured in a Chicago Tribune article! (starpower!)
Then, REELChicago posted a video from opening night (though i think i sound like an idiot)
AND THEN! – the last two days I have talked and visited with the arts reader from the ChicagoREADER, which is super super exciting (since people actually read that one!) If you are around the Chicago area, you can pick up a copy NEXT THURSDAY (the 27th) or search for it on http://www.chicagoreader.com/
Basically… Im about to blow up ya’ll.

On another awesome note – I am still working on my most recent comic! It’s a Wealthy&Diamond diary comic, but it’s on a much larger scale, and with everything that’s been going i’ve only inked one page! But here is the first pages ‘ rough copy for you to revel over until the other pages are done.
I love all of you!

This year, the Chicago Reader decided to switch up their usual “photo issue” to …COMICS! So this is my submission, fresh off the drawing table:
I’d love to hear thoughts and critiques of this piece – specifically, I am curious to hear what people see when they look at this comic: Who is that invisible person? Who is the girl and what is she thinking?
I have my own story I am telling in this piece, but I wanted it to be relatable to a broad variety of people. Everyone has their own story – what’s yours?
ALSO – you will be able to view the original at my upcoming art show!!!!
