Have You Ever Sneezed & Farted At The Same Time?

The best feeling ever. TMI I know but I needed to share this before I go into what I have been up to the last two days. This happened when I was really sick on Sunday and when it happened it made my day.

When I found out that I didn’t have Malaria, I went to class then Emily, Julie and I came back home. I ate lunch which caused the idous and when I get the idous I NEED TO NAP. I slept for 4 HOURS and when I got up I felt SO much better. Like I was never sick. That nap hit the spot and never felt so good. However, I still needed to go to the doctors to get medicine for my tummy (the pills you saw in my last post). If there is one thing I hate the most. its going to the doctors. I hate the long wait and I hate getting my height/weight checked and something happened during this doctor’s visit that upset at first but then I was like “Pshh I love my body and I know I am beautiful”. 

When the nurse called me to the room he was asking the symptoms I was having, took my blood pressure then he asked me to stand on the scale. I stood on the scale and the first thing he said was “Wow so heavy”. I looked at him and gave him an awkward smile. Yea at first I felt really upset and angry that he said that. But then I was like “NO! Fuck it. I AM BEAUTIFUL.”

I was drawing Tina for an assignment and then I went off-course… I wanted to challenge myself. I never draw full bodies in my finished illustrations, I never use big type, I never have horizontal compositions, I never EVER use green…and I could always use more Tina Fey in my art.

So there you go. A lil comfort-zone pushing exercise!

A low-res cell phone pic of the new comic I’m working on… about BOOBIES! Everyone’s favorite thing.

This has been a whirlwind couple of days! I got super lucky and had an article written up in the Huffington Post about my “You Have Body Issues” comic! I am so flattered and surprised by the recognition it’s getting. Thank you HuffPost!!!! And thank you so much to the new followers who have liked the article enough to tag along with me!

Hopefully you guys will like this next project. I’m excited about it!

Hello friends! I’m sorry it’s been a while. This summer was a strange mixture of nervousness and relaxation as I prepared to start my senior year here at school. I’m going to be posting a lot more frequently now, so hopefully you haven’t all forgotten me!

This is a doodle I did today for work. I work at my school’s Admissions department, and I write blog posts about my student experience. Today’s post was about reflecting back on my freshman year now that I’m a senior. If you want, you can read the post here: http://www.ccad.edu/blog/2013/08/what-a-trip-my-senior-reflection/

But yes. Here is a very nervous CCAD freshman (me when I was a baby… three years ago). Hope you all are doing well and have had a wonderful start to your school year, whether you’re in school or not!

Today marks a really cool milestone for me - I’m speaking at a panel at the MIX comics symposium! I’m going to be presenting alongside some really, really amazing women, talking about our lives as female comic creators. If you’re registered at MIX or a CCAD student, come see us present at the Sketch & Kvetch panel! 3:45 in the Canzani auditorium!

I wanted to say hello and welcome to new followers and a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me here on the Tumblr!

I don’t think I’ll ever get over the feeling I get when I see comments like “this hit home for me” or “this makes me feel better about myself.” You guys are constantly reminding me that if even a few people can be affected by the things I’m making, there’s a place for me out there!!

Oh, and this lil lady is a tiny preview of my next piece. Hint: It’s Girl Scout cookie season….
