🤗 Hi people! I'm Emily (she/her) and I draw queer fantasy comics. My current webcomic is Cocoon, updating with 5 pages on Saturday mornings! Sorcerers deal with new magic in their peaceful valley, and things go sideways. All over.

Hey artists.

Please don't put dreamcatchers in your art unless it's actively supposed to be about native American spiritualism.

Because I've seen some of you use them for ~aesthetic~ and I'd like to ask you to not.

I don't care how ~dreamy~ your shit is, stop using my culture out of context.

I got a fairly cute Calais coming sometime in Cocoon... hehe.

Started drawing pages for part 2 of Cocoon... and page 225 took an hour and a half to color 😯 what am I getting myself into...

Feeling good, I've got some good stuff for the site update. Drew a new Cocoon banner (part 2 starts in a month!?) today. Feels good to be back at the computer, drawing away the time.

the other news is that I'm redoing the homepage of my site, as if teaching coding for 10 days wasn't enough for me 😅

Hi everyone, especially those new people here! I've got the latest update of Cocoon up for reading, and this week we hit page 200!!!
Check out the new pages here-

whew, one more day of heavy work and then I can get back to art!!
(I do think I did some good work this week, I had some students who got really excited about coding which is lovely)

Seeing all the new people makes me want to get some more art on here, if only I wasn't working a 50-hour week this week (cries gently in overtime pay)
Next week! Hopefully. I will get some more art besides Cocoon pages.

This week on Cocoon-- lots of chrysanthemums and vines that took a lot to draw 🍃
Check out the pages here, they are some of the craziest for part 1 of Cocoon:

I switched brushes yesterday for my figure studies and it's given me some new energy 🌟

I've been doing a lot of figure drawing lately. A bunch of poses every day, figuring out a lot. I don't share since it's just sketchy stuff without much refinement. But it's pretty great to feel the improvement every day.
