I’m keepin’ it rolling – I want to try to post something at least once a week – trying to get my life back!
Here is a comic I drew back in April about our former long-term sub teacher at work, who I followed around gawking at for months.
Holy MOLY it’s been a long time since I’ve posted on here. ITS BEEN NEARLY 5 MONTHS PEOPLE.
Why? Various life events + no time + nothing to draw + too many commissions + my student spilling coffee on my computer and it being in the shop waiting for parts for 4 months.
BUT LOOK! IM HERE! IM BACK! YAY!
I am hoping to get things going again regularly. And guess what folks – I just turned 30! Shit is gonna get real.
SO without further ado, let’s welcome each-other back with a new debut comic, the first comic of my 30’s : I CAN DO ANYTHING.

I totally forgot to ever post the illustrations I did for Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago Words Weekend last year. It was an incredible experience and opportunity, and I had a ton of fun doing these illustrations.
Based on the poem by Irene Marquette (which you can read here)
Thank you to 1,000 Chicago Afternoons, Anthology of Chicago and CHI_LIT and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago for the awesome opportunity!
Recently featured again on the MCA Front page and in the Chicago READER for a similar even coming up this month: http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/welcome-to-the-neighborhood/Event?oid=16184828
Every year in honor of Native American Heritage Month I make something specifically for this this celebratory time. Last year I made “Shawnee Dance“, but this year I have something extra special to share with all of you:
This is has been a year long project, months of research, and even a whole dinner extravaganza dedicated to trying these recipes, all to bring you a beautifully illustrated unique collection of native foods. Not only are all these recipes traditionally from different Indigenous tribes around the united states, but all of the ingredients are native to the americas, all of the recipes but one are from “Pre-European Contact”, and most of them are Allergen Friendly, Vegan and Gluten Free! (So hip)
Every year during the month of November (NAHM) I sell my new creation, not for profit, but to raise money for two particular organizations. First is the American Indian Center of Chicago, which puts on amazing events all year long as well as provides community, classes and workshops for both Native and non-native peoples in Chicago (for example, I am taking archery there!). Depending on how much I raise each year, I want to be able to send something to the Absentee Shawnee Tribe in Shawnee Oklahoma, which is where my lineage is from and where my great grandfather was born.
Last year I raised $50, so i sent all of that to the AIC. This year my goal is AT LEAST $100, so I can send $50 each.
This year, I will be selling the cookbook during the month of November for $15 and the Shawnee Dance Print for $10, OR BOTH for $20! A seriously amazing (and delicious) deal :)
If you’re interested, please email RACHEL.F.T.FOSS@GMAIL.COM with your name, address, which items you would like to purchase – and I will send you an Invoice!
Thank you again everyone, I love you all.
