Stuff! Draw ‘Em With the Pointy End: A Game of Thrones Art Book

Signal boost! This is the first Kickstarter I’ve backed since we moved and I’m shooting for the physical book. I’ve been in the habit of getting digital versions of Kickstarted books just due to lack of space combined with moving, but this time I paid extra for international shipping because I think this would look… Read more »

Stuff! Hana Doki Kira Kickstarter Now Live!

Good news for comic lovers, mischief makers, and zine worshippers: Hana Doki Kira, the shoujo-inspired comic anthology I contributed to earlier this year, is finally available through Kickstarter!

Stuff! How to Use Evernote Food to Automate a Recipe Collection

When Google Reader was still in its prime, I had figured out a combination of IFTTT recipes to send articles tagged as “recipes” directly to my Kindle in a PDF form. I was pretty proud of this accomplishment. The Internet is such a great haven for food lovers, but it’s taxing to bookmark every single… Read more »

Stuff! The Queen of Versailles

People’s relationships with money fascinate me. Some people resent those with a lot of money, or those who exhibit displays of wealth.

Some people have asked me for QR codes for my designs in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, so here you go! I made three inspired by actual clothing I’ve seen online. If you don’t already have the QR code function unlocked in New Leaf, that means you haven’t talked to the Abel sisters enough! Talk to… Read more »

Stuff! Evan Dahm’s Vattu on Kickstarter

I just donated to Evan Dahm’s Kickstarter for a PDF of his latest work-to-be-published, Vattu. I only recently read his acclaimed Rice Boy and am insanely impressed by Dahm’s world-building abilities. I am slowly making my way through Order of Tales, which has had a permanent tab open on my iPad so I don’t lose… Read more »

Stuff! Bitter Oranges by Hope Larson

Hope Larson directed this short film about a success-driven flapper mixed in the bootlegging business. It’s really cool to see a comic artist’s eyes translated to the big screen.

Stuff! Designing Clothes in Animal Crossing New Leaf

I made this dress for my Animal Crossing New Leaf character, Farrah. I had just signed up for Shop It To Me (more on that soon) and I was overwhelmed with the desire to buy shiny new clothes. The thing is, I don’t really NEED clothes (I’m more apt to spend money on books) so… Read more »
