New Post About Old Stuff

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)

Hey Something New!

I will be debuting a new mini-comic in 2015:  QUILTS

Quilts opening page

QUILTS will be a story about a generation of women told through a family heirloom.  I hope to debut it at CAKE (fingers crossed I get accepted!)  But if not, it will come out anyway :) Check back soon :D

YAY! The Native American Cookbook Debut!

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:

Native Book front cover

 

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)

Native Back cover

 

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.

Breakup Weekend Comics – Part 2

no really it’s really funny… Last week i was told by this greg that I wasn’t important enough to make time for and that we’re never going to see each-other again.

And then, a few days later, i broke up with the guy i was currently dating… also named greg.

My life is weird.

 

Breakup Weekend 2014

breakup comic part 1, part of

*!* BREAKUP WEEKEND 2014 *!*

Oh this comic symbolizes so many things, but mostly inspired by how twice in the past few months ive been dumped around birthdays, in a situation where I am of the position to want to celebrate the other person’s life and I was specifically kept away from the celebration to make a statement of how unimportant I am to them.

The cupcake is a representation of the birthdays, but also symbolizes how generous I try to be in a relationship and instead I have to toss it away because the other person doesnt want anything i have to give.

MAN I AM JUST A BUNDLE OF LAUGHS

Breakup Weekend part 2 coming tomorrow – stay tuned.
