I <3 Bees!
I very much like bees. That is all there is to say about that. The colors are nice too. Been working on a longer comic all week. Took quite a while to nail the script down and hours to do the lette...

Where have all the butterflies gone...
I say "get older" because I'm not sure "growing up" is something that is compatible with the creative life. At least, it's been a couple decades now and I don't seem to be doing it, at least not in...

Doom and Gloom! Doom and Gloom!
This comic appeared to me, more or less fully formed, as an idea in a dream. No kidding. This scenario wasn't the dream; it was an idea I had for the comic *in* the dream, which was a pretty normal...

I'm a fan of the second theory, personally.
I almost didn't draw this comic today. I almost didn't draw any comic today. For one thing, this is an illustration where my lack of advanced cartooning skills kills me, because this would be 10 ti...

This basically speaks for itself. 
The Man works for an aerospace manufacturing firm, in quality assurance. It's a job, you know? Every year, the company holds a big picnic in the park, with a bouncing castle and water guns and game...

In case you do not hang out with adolescent people, you might not be aware that this is a thing. Kids with perfectly good video game systems--multiple systems with a nearly limitless number of game...

I wrote this insane thing. 
In chapter 22 of Alan Moore’s Lost Girls, around the point at which the story moves from simply taboo to extreme, almost unspeakable, possibly illegal taboo, a secondary character makes the fol

Good morning! Time for a healthy breakfast!
I have this dilemma regarding how political I want to go; in the last week, I've been involved in a few really interesting conversations about democratic socialism starting with randomly telling th...

Failing your reality check
I predict that this comic will perform well across all platforms except for the ones where people celebrate their own lack of diversity and feel threatened when anyone questions their dominant para...

IMO time travel stories only work if they're comic :)
Just some standard silliness. If I could travel back in time and give 3rd grade me some advice, I'm not sure what I'd say. It's tempting to joke about stock tips and the outcomes of sporting events...

Story
Tagline
I am a sensitive artist.
Introduction
I was born in 1974 and have been shocking people ever since. My husband Tabor and I live in Tucson, Arizona with his two kids and our combined cats. I am a freelance writer with 9 unpublished novels and a small copywriting business.
Bragging rights
I work from home. I have a swimming pool and a hot tub. My house is worth at least twice what I owe on the mortgage. I have sold 2 short stories in the speculative fiction genre, which puts me at the pinnacle of the nerd hierarchy. Also, look at my profile pic. I have a lot to brag about.
