Hands Off

I wanted to share what I've been up to this week. I put comics on hold and held a 3-day fundraiser in celebration of Wendy Davis, to benefit Planned Parenthood. I am so, so incredibly overwhelmed by and grateful for the outpouring of support--of donations, of kind words, of inspiring stories, of empowered women, and of fantastic press. Thank you to everyone for your love! And honestly, I couldn't do any of this if I hadn't been drawing teeny-tiny Jug Wine panels for the last ten years.

The smartest nails on Earth

Chris Ware nails! I'm a nail artist because I'm a cartoonist, and I'm a cartoonist because of Alison Bechdel, Adrian Tomine, Jeffrey Brown, James Kochalka, and of course, the incomparable Chris Ware. But real talk: a solid afternoon of Jimmy Corrigan and polish fumes is hella bumming me out (note: the text-heavy thumb is too depressing for public consumption), so I'm taking these off and drawing a bunch of kittens. (...I'll probably keep the boy.)

I quit that shitty coffee shop job.
