Here’s what I’ve been pouring all my time and energy into lately!!!! So glad to be able to finally share it!

I’ve been designing these yokai themed patterns that will soon be turned into fabric and then into hats by the amazing Misallati Hat Club - an incredibly skilled and chill duo of brothers!! 

I’ll post when the hats are available for sale! They’re all gonna be completely hand-made too! I am psyched as hell. I love yokai and Japanese mythology so much, so this project has been an absolute blast.

(PLEASE DO NOT REPOST OR USE THESE PATTERNS WITHOUT PERMISSION)

Mady G’s illustrations are seriously a blast! Beautifully inked with smooth, exaggerated expressions, their art takes me back to 90′s cartoons like Ren & Stimpy or Rocko’s Modern Life. But with a nice queer twist! 

Drawn in the same cartoony style, their autobio comics literally feels like reading a page from a diary. I feel like I’m invading their personal space as they discuss intimate thoughts on anxiety, depression and more importantly, their identity as a nonbinary trans-person. And unlike most diary comics explaining events in an artist’s life, reading Mady’s comics feels like having a close friend confide in you. 

Because of Mady, I’m on a quest to read more nonbinary identity comics (I’m open to recommendations!) <3

Please help support the artists by pledging or spreading the word or hinting loudly that you’d love one as a holiday gift! Thank you so much!

Mady got a hold of my sketchbook today and turned a “meeeeeh” sketch that I was never going to do anything with into something the both of us can be proud of! 

So yeah, more Hank/Dermott (or as we like to call it “Dank”) from the both of us. This one’s kinda angsty…inspired by Mady’s gorgeous piece here. Poor babies… <:C

Will color this one later ;)

I’ve been wanting to do one of these for ages and now, having finally done it, all I can think is: “shit, I know I left stuff off, I know I forgot stuff”. Oh well, though.
