New comic about meeting someone great at the worst possible time.

This comic is in preparation for an art show coming up at the end of June at the Logan Square Arts Festival!  I will be collaborating with Melinda Mcintire of Solo in the Second City.  Make sure to come check it out!

The WONDER WOMAN Pose

I know I haven’t been submitting much lately, but I just finished a project I’m really excited about.  I think that it’s something that every woman (and human I guess ;) should know about to support building confidence and self-esteem.

Everyone deserves a chance to wield their golden lasso!

CRUSHING IT

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.

Spring in Love

HELLO OLD FRIEND

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.

Im ready.

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.

(based on actual events…)

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)

Thank you to 1,000 Chicago Afternoons, Anthology of Chicago and CHI_LIT and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago for the awesome opportunity!

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
