when submitting please give your: Name & Pronouns, Age, City/Location (optional), Race/Ethnicity, and Motivation for submitting.

lately I haven’t been able to post art very often except on twitter, but here are some previews of illustrations I did for two separate mystic messenger zines!

the first is for the “let’s eat!” mm food zine (preorders are over unfortunately!) but the second is for the “day 12″ mysmes zine! preorders for the latter haven’t opened yet but they will soon! I hope you’ll be able to support them both! ^^


Here’s a preview of the newest volume of Common Curses & Blessings!

Common Curses & Blessings is a 2-in-1 mini-zine about the mundane and insignificant things the universe throws at you.

Read it one way, you’ll read the curses. Flip it over and read about the blessings. Stop by table F12 at SPX this weekend and check it out! I’ll also have volumes 1 and 2. 

2-color risograph printed, 16 pages, 4.25" x 5.5". Once again thank you to Kyle Fewell for printing!

I never got the chance to upload my full piece for the miracuclasszine, but hey! Better late than never I guess?? It was my first Zine and it was a lot of fun. c:

Go check it out if you haven’t and Donate if you can! <3

hey y’all! i’m making my very first collaborative zine! the deadline to submit is dec 3rd! the goal is to get enough submissions 2 make a ~very cool~ free digital publication and also continue this again.

this zine is about queerness: anyone can submit, but voices of color will be given focus as they are the most marginalized.

if you have any questions, feel free to ask me on here, or email me at

when submitting, make sure you submit a name/pseudonym, title of work (optional), brief bio (optional), or contact (optional, but can be an email/blog/twitter/etc)

please reblog if you can!

Any chance of there being a Log Date 2017 zine?

I MEAN;;;;; I’m probably crazy enough to try to do another one eventually, Peridot is my absolute favorite Gem, so this Zine has really been a joy to put together, despite the trials & tribulations of it being my first. Knowing me though, I’d like it to be something Pre-Catch & Release based? Don’t get me wrong, I adore small Peridot, but her Limb Enhancer days are when she first won me over. Maybe I could name it Peridot’s Foot (Or ‘You Clods!’?) and have it be a smaller page count??? BUT! I do have another Zine in planning stages focusing on a different Gem that I intend to announce to the Internet at large!; sometime at the beginning of March, so stick around for that! :D

PSA that I’m making a zine (working title “The Witch Next Door”) with these two and it’s gonna be gay and it’s gonna be cute.

None of them have names yet except Miss witch’s black borzoi (she’s allergic to cats) whose name is Admiral Stilts. He is a simple dog with simple pleasures, and just enough mental power to manage one ear at a time.
