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!

It’s a rad stand-alone ZINE Special! Enjoy this crazy special as the citizens of Ooo create their own zines to share. Marceline has a lot to say about her music, Peppermint Butler has a few life tips for anyone who will listen (and everyone should listen), and Finn creates his very first journal comic. A sick homage to DIY and mini-comics culture printed on uncoated paper and made to look like a zine from the ADVENTURE TIME gang!

I love this book.


I made The Witches’ Daughters for Terrestrial, an anthology of earth-themed fantasy comics edited by Amanda Scurti. You can also read it at its forever home on my portfolio website.

The anthology debuted at SPX 2014, and now you can buy it here! It’s full of lovely comics and illustrations, and I’m very happy to be included in such good company. 


Hey, I’m going to be at RIPEXPO this weekend, which is a brand-new comics and zine fest, free and open to the public.

I’ll be selling HANA DOKI KIRA and SOLID SIGHT 3D and a bunch of high-quality prints, so you should come and say hi to me and try out my weird stereogram comics.

I’ll also be moderating the Art For Girls panel with Suzy X, Carey Pietsch and Laurel Lynn Leake. Read all of their comics. And please join us for the panel :)

Check out the RIPEXPO tumblr for all the info!!!


Lumberjanes 7, out October 15, 2014:

It’s a race through the woods and through everyone’s favorite cave of doom as the Lumberjanes make their way through previous obstacles. Now they know what answers they’re looking for and they are not going to leave until everything is out in the open. Only it looks like the boys’ camp might have other ideas…

I’m thrilled to be doing the artwork for MARCELINE: GONE ADRIFT, a new 6-issue Adventure Time miniseries that Meredith Gran ( octopuspiecomic) is writing! Above are sneak peeks at my variant covers and some early concept art/character sketches. 

From the Newsarama press release:

Marceline is on a rampage for mysterious reasons, and the kingdom of Ooo is desperately scrambling to stop her. In trying to save both Ooo and Marceline herself, Princess Bubblegum accidentally propels Marceline into the farthest reaches of space…and strips her of her powers! Guilt-ridden, Princess Bubblegum sets off on a space rescue that’ll test the power of her mind…as well as the power of friendship.

The first issue will be out in January 2015. We’re all working really hard on this, and I can’t wait for you to get to read it!

Marceline finds herself in a whole new world while Princess Bubblegum realizes her mistake and starts planning how to bring her friend back. The threat to Ooo might be down for now, but one unlikely bun is going to suddenly find himself with too much power to handle!
