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.

Well that was an unpleasant dream. Maybe even a nightmare. I dreamed I was on a trip with my mother and her memory just… stopped working. She knew who she was but had no way to keep a train of thought going for more than a few seconds. Dealing with it was…

This is my list of things I’d like to see in Illustrator. Everyone who uses it probably has one; this is mine. Everything is ready to be cut and paste into Adobe’s feature request/bug report form; I keep these in an Evernote note that’s slowly expanding…

Hmm. So I keep looking at that genie “painting” I did yesterday, and I keep loving it. This is a place I’ve wanted to be with my art for years, but my love of Illustrator kept me away from. I could have been doing painterly cartoon stuff in Photoshop or…

One thing I’ve wanted for a while in Illustrator is the ability to randomly choose brushes. I finally wrote a script to make it happen. So now you can draw a bunch of paths in, say, a “dying marker” brush, then decide it looks too obviously fake, make…

A tweet replying to that last post: “you may wish you were better at socializing but I am in envy of your concise pitching skills.” Let me try to pass on some of those skills… My pitches for my stuff are tight little nuggets of words. They start with a…

  so tonight i was lying around in a purple leopard print camisole, getting petted, and smoking a lot of weed. unnaturally colored cat prints always put me in mind of my retired drunken furry pornmonger identityt. so i drew her. pose referenced off of…

This is me playing with the painterly workflow I’m developing for Drowning City by using it on a future page of Rita. Now that I’m starting to use a lot of named Graphic Styles to organize my effects, I want to have that panel constantly open. It used to…

One more thing about that faux-natural media piece and then I promise I’ll shut up about it and get back to making more art. I’ve tried doing similar tricks in the past for many years. This is the first time I was able to do it and not have to constantly…

Three bowls of Kosher Kush. Five hours. 100% Illustrator.   When I finished this, I suddenly remembered this old piece from March 2001. Apparently I did this over three days in Illustrator 9. Fourteen years has seen a lot of change in both my skills and…

After ECCC, I came home and pretty much crashed for a couple of days. I spent like two days sitting in the living room in the dark playing Bloodborne; the third day was only half spent doing that, because Nick came over Tuesday night and we hung out some…

Some scattered thoughts about ECCC. Best cosplay: the guy as Scarlet Witch. Headpiece, cape, tights, and very very filled bikini bottom. Nothing else. I think I lost a sale by pausing in the middle of my pitch to whoop my approval at him. Did not care.…

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

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.

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.
