RESISTANCE ART

I am going to make open-sourced art for everyone resisting Trump. The Queers #Resist sign is my first, but more to come! Please download either the 8.5x11 one or the square one for your sign or facebook usage. You can also download the original vector files if you want to download them bigger or smaller. #RESIST!

CLimate FOols 2015 Throwback ANIMAtion

This afternoon, I was looking back at the light animation work I did for Forecast the Facts on April Fools Day 2015 (now ClimateTruth.org.) I was pointing out how likely contenders for president were climate deniers. Donald Trump didn't enter the race until two months later, and now these more standard Republicans look... well, quaint in comparison. I hope Trump, who says climate change is a "hoax" invented by the Chinese, doesn't make fools of us all.

ABOUT my Font

See how in my blog post titles, there are two versions of each letter? It's not a Squarespace font, it's my own handwriting, which I painstakingly made into a font. I achieve the variation with upper and lowercase letters programmed, even though they all appear to be upper case. I stole this trick from the wonderful Alison Bechdel :)

Climate Truth EMail Graphic

I recently designed this nifty graphic for ClimateTruth.org, explaining how and what Exxon knew about climate change for decades. I'm proud that this went out to their list and the response has been positive. I hope to create more cartoony emails in the future.

Moth video!

The Moth was kind enough to send me the video from my performance in Berkeley. I won this particular StorySLAM, and have been back to perform more times. 

WinNIng the MoTh!

In addition to drawing and making cartoons, I also love telling super personal stories in front of hundreds of people. A LOT. The stage makes me feel very at home. 

That being said I was still surprised and honored to win a Moth Story SLAM at the Berkeley Freight and Salvage last Wendesday. The laughter and "mms" of acknowledgement as I was telling my story -- which was about getting punched in the face by a random woman on the street and then needing to find the pieces of my glasses -- made me feel like I was creating something out of that destructive experience. I was moved that you (listeners) were moved. Thank you very much.

I will be performing at the Moth GrandSLAM in October at the Castro Theater, and at BAWDY storytelling at the Verdi Club tomorrow. Stay tuned!


ComiNg to LA for WOnderCon!

Hello! I will be coming back to Los Angeles -- where I spent my middle and high school years -- for WonderCon this year over the Easter weekend. I will be joining PRISM comics and Stacked Deck Press to promote ALPHABET, an epic anthology featuring (so!) many queer cartoonists. Learn more about ALPHABET and the contributors and editors here!
