New illustration: the stars align in Grand Central.

If you’re near New Jersey this weekend, come visit us at Asbury Park Comic Con! I’ll have all the same goodies as I did at MOCCA.
Once we figure out where in the ballroom C-330 actually is, I’ll tweet some really terrible directions.

New illustration- likeness/ companion to a movie review for Veronica Mars. Fun to mess with lighting, and good to get away from the pink/purple palette I’ve been (happily) stuck in for a bit :)

We’re facing down the last 10% of the funds we need for our Kickstarter campaign with 10 days to go - help us support these wonderful artists and get their comics published! We’ll be debuting the book at TCAF, but you can reserve your copy by pledging to the campaign!

You can check out the full list of contributors on the Kickstarter page.

Ten days, ten percent to go!

Check out some of the fuckin great art from this issue - so many talented ladies making comics about ladies making comics! :)

We’re soooo close, please consider donating!!

Dirty Diamonds is almost to its kickstarter goal! I have a comic in this issue, and I also got to illustrate the cover. It’s packed full of awesome work by awesome artists, and you can now get the whole digital backlog as a ks reward, so check it out!

Comics, prints, and goodies from MOCCA Fest/ DDLL 2014! There were a ton of great comics that I didn’t get to on my shopping list, so hopefully I’ll track ‘em down at TCAF or online. DDLL remains amazing, as always, and I had a ton of fun tabling at MOCCA for the first time.

I wanted to thank everyone who stopped by to visit and/or pick up comics & prints this past weekend! Your visits & support mean a lot to me. It’s always nice to match faces to avatars, and I’m glad to meet new folks from tumblr & elsewhere around the internet. Feel free to drop me an ask and say hi again!

If I didn’t get to see you then, I’ll also be at Asbury Park Comic Con this upcoming weekend, and TCAF in May. I’ll have more copies of everything, although I sold entirely out of Keepsakes at MOCCA, so I’ve got some serious folding ahead of me before then :)

I’m really excited to share a preview of my new all-ages comic, Keepsakes! It’s debuting at MOCCA table E13 this weekend, and I’ll also have it at TCAF, ABPCC, and SPX. There’s a very short early review on Bleeding Cool, and there should be another review up on Geekadelphia tomorrow.

Keepsakes is a story about two sisters. While supporting each other through the loss of a relative, they discover a (badly-kept!) secret and encounter strange elements in their grandparents’ home.  It’s up to the two of them to mend fences, get out of danger, and figure out who else might be familiar with the town’s mysteries.

$5, 38 pages, b&w interiors with full-color covers. Get it at MOCCA table E13! I hope you enjoy it, and I bet the kids in your life will dig it too.

This year’s Drink and Draw Like a Lady will be held on Friday April 4th starting at 7 pm. We’re happy to say that The Productive co-working space is hosting us again this year. They are located at 40 W. 38th St. (between 5th and 6th Ave) on the 5th Floor (there is an elevator).

All ages are welcome, 21+ to drink. Bring your mini comics, business cards, sketchbooks and your love of comics. Ladies only please!

We’re thrilled to be sponsored in part this year by Work Made for Hire, a Portland based company helping artists and freelancers protect their rights and get paid fairly for the work they do. Check out their services!

The 2014 flyer was designed by the wonderful Carey Pietsch!

A small group of us organize Drink and Draw Like a Lady. Thank you to everyone who has already donated via the PayPal button on the main DDLL Tumblr page! We will also have a tip jar at the party if you prefer to throw in a few bucks that way. If you want to bring food or beverages instead, those are also welcome. There will be DDLL button incentives available at the party for those who donate!

Can’t wait to see everyone. Please spread the word!

Comics-making ladies: it’s that time of year again!

This Friday: one of my favorite comics events of the year! Hope to see a bunch of you there :)

I’ll also have 11x17 prints of this flyer at MOCCA table E13! 20% of any proceeds will go towards funding DDLL 2015. More on that later this week!

Illustration and two spots for an article titled “A Life Luxe-Ordinary.” I tried out Jillian Tamaki’s thought web process (read part 1 of her post, too!) and found it to be a really helpful way to bring a little more structure and focus into my usually messy and wandering note-taking.

Done as part of Daniel Fishel’s class. Spot the (terrible) pun/joke!

On a separate note, I’m going to be at MOCCA Fest Table E13 on 4/5 and 4/6! Who else is tabling/ where are you gonna be?
