Webcomics

From!

A travelogue-journal-sketchbook-memoir! This ongoing webcomic records a 2011 trip to South Africa. Recently married, my parents took my husband and I on a trip to show him where I grew up. From details a trip full of memories resurfacing through experiences like another side of a coin. The webcomic is currently on hold while I finish a graphic novel, but will restart in future, so be sure to follow via RSS. For now, you can read several chapters, or buy a beautifully-produced minicomic of the first 3 chapters!

Small Stories

This webcomic came about because of my love of short comics - I had a veritable pick 'n mix of shorts, experiments, and journal comics, and wanted a more regular way to share them. Small Stories is currently mostly on hold while I finish a graphic novel, but updates now and then (follow via RSS!), and has an archive with lots of shorts to keep you occupied!

Blue You

I contributed a 6-page short to Julia Scheele's excellent project 69 Love Songs, Illustrated, collecting comics based on all 69 of the Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs.
