This Week So Far

Hello! A TON of stuff happened to me this week!

1) I was not offered not one, but TWO jobs on Thursday. I think I know which one I'm taking, but long story short: I'M MOVING BACK TO THE DC AREA!!!

2) I went to my friend Chelsea Demitras' art show at Three Goats Cafe in Baltimore from now until July 22nd. If you're in the area, you should check it out! She does really cool watercolors of food.

3) I finally started working on comics again! I want to make the deadline for the Dirty Diamonds Anthology.

 I finished all four pages today.

The theme of the anthology is Being. This will be Dirty Diamonds' ninth volume. Dirty Diamonds is an all girl and femme anthology that focuses on autobio comics about a particular theme. Being is their most abstract theme to date. I am doing a comic about finally feeling like I came to life at age 25. There is a ton of variety to this anthology though. For example, Kata Kane, one of the founders of BMore Into Comics (a comic collective in Baltimore I'm a part of) is doing a comic about becoming a mother (ie, creating another being). I will update the blog when the Kickstarter launches.

The last volume of Dirty Diamonds I was in was Dirty Diamonds volume six, which focused on Beauty. I did a comic for that volume with Stephanie Zuppo that you can read here.

4) I saw my friends Brittany and Brennan this week. They are not artists so I will not be linking them. But here are Brennan's gold shoes:

 She also owns gold sneakers.

5) I finally got a new bag:

6) I drew a comic I like (in doodle form) about my rose quartz necklace I got in NYC when I got my aura photographed with Christine and her sister.

That's it for now! Bye!
