I’ve just added a new Greek God to my print lexicon …. *drum roll* ….


She joins the gaggle of others I’ve been compiling:


Wanna see a specific god/goddess pop up next? Or take a gander on who I’ll add next? You can find all of these in print and cuff form in my Etsy Shop!

Latest Mini-Comic!

Hooray, I’ve finally gotten my act together and put my latest comic, Go For the Eyes, up for sale in my Etsy shop! I’ll soon have it available in my BigCartel shop too, but this at least gets the ball rolling.

I debuted this 24-pager at Stumptown last weekend, and already got some SUPER awesome feedback by people who were kind enough to share their own stories of self-defense with me. For some reason, (even though I’ve already have made comics talking about my boobs and my experiences as an embarrassing mall model) I felt really nervous about putting this particular story out into the world.

Autobio is always funny that way – sometimes you couldn’t care a bit what people read and think about you, and other times you feel a bit twingy about it. I’m super glad I finally wrote this book, as it’s been banging around in my head for a long long time, but now that it’s out there I’m sure I’ll rethink all the ways I could’ve said more.

How do you all feel about autobio? Love it when it’s REEEALLY personal, or prefer it with a touch of distance? What about you autobio writers out there – ever feel more hesitant sometimes than others when putting your work out there?

Have I mentioned that I’ll be exhibiting at the Stumptown Comics Fest this weekend?

My two li’l printers are hard at work right now churning out copies of my latest autobio mini-comic GO FOR THE EYES!

Latest Mini-Comic!

It’s debuting at Stumptown but I’ll have it for sale from my shop when I get back. 24 pages of pure awkward, undiluted self-defense! Can you dig it??

In the meantime, you can preview the comic right here.

I’ll be exhibiting at table D-18, alongside the superbly talented Mike DiMotta! We’ll be there with loads of smiles (and layers, probably – it’s unpredictable Portland, right?) and stuff for you to look at. Come on out and visit!

Vicious Mamas

I’ve got a new Mother’s Day card up in my Etsy Shop! For all those killer moms out there.

Yesterday I exhibited at my first craft show, and it was interesting to compare the experience to comic shows (which are normally more my bag). Since I’ve applied to craft shows before but never been accepted, I was nervous. I wasn’t sure the crafters would accept me into their clan.

Luckily, the experience was wonderful! Crafters seem to be just as supportive and excited about each others’ work as indie comickers are. Just as shy, too. I mean, I’m used to comic exhibitors practically throwing their necks out just to avoid eye contact and using any excuse to leave the table rather than discuss their own work (and I’m including myself in this group). So it was kind of charming to see crafters with their beautiful, elaborate displays of hand-woven jewelry … likewise all crouched in a corner, panicked when a customer greeted them.

Here are a few of the things I noticed:

  • Lots of pregnant women with adorable babies strapped to them in various intricate contraptions
  • Maxi dresses in wonderful patterns
  • Lots of supportive comments from visitors, telling me they loved that I was a writer, illustrator, and designer 🙂 (which means now I’m allowed to refer to myself as a triple threat, right? In my mind?)
  • A great variety of jewelry, perfume, wearable things, hangable things, loveable things
  • A MUCH better smell wafting through the place as a whole. Sorry Comic Cons, but crafters have you beat. No longer was there the whiff of B.O. swirling about – instead it was just the sweet aroma of savory soaps and perfumes. Yum.
  • I met Young House Love superstar blogsters John & Sherry, whose mere presence shamed my boyfriend into taking on more home improvement projects. All part of my evil plan!
  • Regrettably, my work sparked this question in a little girl:  “Mommy, what does -” points to my Tiger print “- ‘sexy’ mean?” My bad, mother of little girl.

I also picked up this little number from Monkey Dog Studio:

As well as checked out some gorgeous stuff from:

After the show, Dennis and I dragged ourselves on over to the Sine Irish Pub. There, we did some pub crawler participant watching (too drunk at stop #1, they were) and I obsessed over the safety of my car in an “Honor Code” parking lot until Dennis put money in the parking lot slot. Has anyone else ever encountered a parking lot, with plenty of empty spaces, on a Sunday, with a big scary sign that tells you you still have to pay something, even though it’s Sunday and no one’s around? Oh well, it was enough to have me shivering in my britches, so even though everyone we asked told us we didn’t have to pay, my honor remains intact.

Peace out, Richmond, that was a wonderful Sunday trip! And I can’t wait to go back to Spring Bada Bing!
