Introduction
I'm just this gal who draws stuff.


Now that the whole Internet is here, I must add this note for folks from Egypt: I don't speak Arabic, the name is just a pen name I've been using for a while.

One of Marie-Jeanne’s friends had asked for a photo of her. Here are several, taken from a cache of slides Russell (her husband, and my father) had taken. If there are any lying around of her as an older woman, they’re somewhere else in her house; these…

Yesterday, I went and sat on a big rock in Ravenna Park for an hour and wrote this. It seems to have helped my mood a lot. I could probably edit it some but fuck it: stream-of-consciousness. Go.   Let me tell you about my mother.   She was born the day…

There's really nothing anyone can say that's adequate, but I wanted you to know I'm sorry for your loss... as pathetic as that phrase may seem.

“You’ll want to change the sheets before you use my bed,” she said. And told me where they were, and that there were probably some in the dryer, and so on and so forth. But I haven’t even thought of doing that. Sleeping in her bed just feels so incredibly…

This is one of two panels from “Understanding Comics” that just keeps lingering for me. Rita is definitely naked lightbulb and coffee comics.

I pulled Sony Santa Monica’s lovely little game “Hohokum” last night. Found a few more friends. Today I booted it up again and flew around in the carnival area for a while. Last night I’d been wondering if all the alien text in it was translatable; turns…

I just recorded a new outgoing message for my mother’s answering machine. “Hello! You have reached the home of Marie-Jeanne Trauth, who has recently departed to that mysterious country from whose bosom no traveller returns. If you’re calling about a…

Yesterday, to take a break from worrying about my mother, I went to see “Mad Max: Fury Road”. Add my voice to the chorus saying that it is an amazing film. I’ve been thinking about its title. The obvious meaning is just HEY A LOT OF ANGRY EXPLOSIONS. But…

I’m still working on this adaptation of ‘Ozymandias’ as a dry run for ‘Drowning City’. The script font may need to be a little larger to be legible, and I’m not as sold on the sans-serif font for less floridly-delivered dialogue as I was in my initial…

It is not until I am lying naked atop the unfolded sofa-bed in my mother’s apartment, in the dark, that I let myself cry. And only briefly at that. An hour or so ago, I was sitting in a hospital room talking to her. This morning, I was getting onto a…

I think I just wrote the last page of “Decrypting Rita”. I feel weirdly empty. It’s like I’ve been walking around with this story taking up an ever-increasing chunk of my head for the past four years, and now it’s gone. There’s still stuff to do. My rough…

I just spent two and a half hours writing a synopsis of Decrypting Rita. It is approximately 2200 words long, and probably needs editing. The spur to do this was Oni Press opening up submissions next month. Will they bite? I dunno. They say they’re…

A full service chickens experience! My chicken was on the gruff side but that's how I like it.

Chill people making damn tasty biscuits, and covering them with all kinds of delightful jams and butters. Love the decor, too.

The Comic Stop is great. They have the usual racks of all the DC and Marvel superhero stuff if that's what you're into, but if you're like me and couldn't care less about that, they've got a kid's section, an indy section, European and Japanese imports, and all kinds of good stuff.

I go to this location fairly regularly to mail out books people have bought. I've always found the folks working here to be pretty cool and reasonably friendly, even in the face of someone showing up with fifty identical packages to mail. Lines can be long sometimes. It's a post office, in the middle of a busy area. This will happen.
