This is a photo story I created for my photo class my last semester of college. I didn’t realize we would have to share our photos with the class and the chorus of awwww’s was fairly embarrassing.

RYE
My bread baking bone breaking badass for Jenn Woodall’s FIGHT! zine!
Because nothing beats some hot ‘n crusty bread.

I made the gif just for kicks, but it’s wonky in places because it took waaaay longer than I planned for and I had to stop! Overall though, this has been probably one of the funnest pieces for me to draw. Definitely influenced by my everlasting love of Kiki’s Delivery Service & not-so-secret desire to live in a bakery. I wanna do more food-themed fighters!

Prints available from my Inprnt store.

A flower for Esther by Kali Ciesemier www.ciesemier.com


I drew a flower for the Blooms of Nigeria tumblr, curated by Rebecca Bradley & Janna Morton as an illustrated vigil for the 250+ kidnapped Nigerian girls. Of the 180 girls whose names we know, the tumblr aims to give each of them an illustrated flower by different woman artist, and to keep their story alive and in discussion. I’m saddened and disappointed that there hasn’t been more progress in finding the girls, but hopeful for their safe return.

You guys have all heard of Lumberjanes by now, right? 
I’m happy to say that my exclusive cover for Lumberjanes #1 is for sale at Challengers Comics in Chicago (my hometown!) coinciding with Noelle's signing there this past weekend. I think the whole Lumberjanes crew is ace and I'm excited to have contributed to such a girl-positive comics series, drawn and written by awesome ladies!

I’ve been watching a lot of River Monsters and I really liked the idea of setting the Lumberjanes off on a canoeing adventure with an unexpected catch. I’ve since been informed that the canoe I drew totally looks like a vagina. It was unintentional, but I’m more than ok with that! By ladies for ladies, amirite??

I recently completed a show poster for the local Louisville band, Tristen Brooke. I kept the middle space open so if needed, they can change the times, dates, and location to fit any event they desire.

Whenever I’m in Louisville, I try to make it to one of their shows. If you’re in Louisville, be sure to be on the look out! Amazing music!

Check out the music of Tristen Brooke here: Tristen Brooke

I feel as though I am able to finally figure out a way of working that I enjoy.  It wasn’t until I worked on Inktober did I begin to experiment and analyze what I liked about my work and how to expand upon it.  This piece, which I call Galactica, is sort of an ode to both these findings and what had started my love for drawing in the first place. As a kid, I used to read an abundance of books and comics, specifically Japanese manga. I read a lot of Shojo and Shonen. Though the novels pushed my love for written stories, manga pushed my love for ways to visually tell a story.

Also I want to start showing more of my process on my blog so I decided to show the original sketch I did when I had the idea as well as the final layout drawing and color composition sketch I did before I began to move to final with this piece.
