Introduction: Fall 2021 Collection

September 19th, 2021 Hi. Hey. Hi! I wasn’t sure how to start this introduction to myself so I used all three as a placeholder and I forgot to go back and delete two. I’ll be going out into the world for the next month and meeting new friends and possible fans and hopefully not potentialContinue reading “Introduction: Fall 2021 Collection”

A Little Shove

September 6th, 2021 Inspiration and motivation can come from the strangest and most delightful of places. Making Brushfire is hard. It’s a lot of fun and it means the universe (multiple universes, actually) to me, but it’s been a ton of work and some days I just can’t. There’s an alternate dream reality in whichContinue reading “A Little Shove”

July 25th, 2021 My squirrels! I am beyond excited to finally reveal the cover for my upcoming all-ages (yes, this one is for everybody!) graphic novel, Brushfire.

2%

June 21st, 2021 Sometimes it takes an animal’s perspective to help us understand our own lives; the way that humans tend to overcomplicate things often gets in the way of seeing them clearly. This has become very apparent as I finish up hundreds of pages of squirrel research. I have fun facts for days (IContinue reading “2%”

Freefallin’

May 30th, 2021 Sharing a warm-up sketch this morning for two reasons: 1. Brushfire is still very much my main project that I’m working on, despite yesterday’s surprise news that I’m releasing a sequel to Flip this summer. 2. Squirrels can be dropped at any height and survive. Physics will give you all the answersContinue reading “Freefallin’”

I Managed To Celebrate Three Years of Sobriety in 2020

December 9th, 2020 Over the past three years, I feel like I’ve done okay. I wrote stuff. (Books, comics, songs, and over 60,000 words of blog material, to name some of it.) I did stuff (like go to conventions and concerts, on adventures and meetings). I thought stuff and I felt stuff. Like, really thoughtContinue reading “I Managed To Celebrate Three Years of Sobriety in 2020”
