Keep Moving, Keep Warm

Welp, I heard my first Christmas song on the radio and it's consistently snowing daily, which means the time has come to actually admit winter is happening again...
In hopes of keeping spirits merry and bright I made a few sets of winter/holiday cards now available on my etsy page.  Here's what they look like:

If you're in Chicago I will be tabling with these and other prints/books/zines/goodies at the Spudnik Holiday Sale taking place Friday, December 5th from 6-10pm  at Spudnik Press!

***Also, I'm going to be doing a limited number of holiday-time commissions.  All will be square sized up to 11x11" hand inked and watercolored.  They can be of any 1-2 animals doing any 1 activity (example: a panda bear eating cereal).  Email me at by November 24th  to get your request in! All drawings will be mailed out the second week of December.  ***

I have been working on one big secret special project that's not the graphic novel I neeeeed to start drawing.  Sometimes things you love the best come as distractions to what you should be doing..

November, Forever

November has become one of my favorite months.  Not even by choice as it's the mark of winter beginning (since it snowed all day yesterday..) but because of good things in my life coming my way in November.  I love Thanksgiving--not the actual reason for the holiday but the idea behind celebrating harvest and food before the coming winter.  The last few years I've had the joy of celebrating "friendsgiving" in Chicago and it's one of my favorite nights of the year.
My niece was born in November and will be celebrating her 4th birthday this year, which is hard to believe.
I also met Andrew in November.  We'll be celebrating 2 years together, which is easy to believe.

I also love the Milwaukee Zine Fest which will be happening again this year on Nov. 8th.  I will also have some work hanging at their pop-up art fair the week before.   Opening Sunday November 2nd at Jazz Gallery, 926 East Center St.  info here:
These are the 3 original watercolors from a series called "Scary Things" Nightmare/Shadow/Reflection

 if you get a chance go say hi to these dudes for me.
Tonight is also fall behind!  Best night of the year, extra hour of life!
