I've got an ongoing paper doll assignment for one of my classes, and I'm super excited to dress all of these lesbians in extremely powerful gay fashions

finally been able to draw a bit! here's some inking for my next webcomic update. I'm trying out a looser way of inking and it's a lot more tolerable for me, haha

Just realized I haven't talked about my webcomic on this account yet!

I make Galanthus, a space fantasy webcomic. It follows Farah, a human girl struggling with grief, while the ragtag spaceship crew she's part of is hired to retrieve an unimaginably powerful artifact from across the galaxy. Of course, they're not the only ones who want it.

here's another cross stitch! this is lizard girlfriends fanart for @ashantifortson's webcomic galanthus. cross stitching is basically tactile pixel art, i love it ☺️

I was invited to design an embroidered patch for the Kickstarter for The Sun and the Wayward Wind, an anthology celebrating North American myths and legends

I grew up in MN and our resident folk hero was Paul Bunyan, so I chose to do Babe the blue ox!

This project is full of really good comics, illustrations, and neat side rewards and you can back it here! kickstarter.com/projects/11245

I made a zine a little while ago featuring fashions from because that movie has so many good styles

I had a lot of fun with it! especially in utilizing comic paneling in the illustrations. I'd like to continue exploring that 💪🏽

Here's a preview of a comic I made for the The Sun and the Wayward Wind, a comics & illustration anthology about legends and lore of North America. "Heritage" follows a young Mexican-American woman as she hikes up the mountains of Tepoztlán in search of cultural belonging.

The anthology is currently being Kickstarted, and you can find it here: kickstarter.com/projects/11245

It's got a bunch of cool artists in it and will be a fantastic book, so definitely check it out!
