Ink, watercolor, digital. 

This is my first attempt to merge the two mediums by editing them together digitally. 
I think I'll try experimenting with this method a little more.

pizza dough

It's virus season. The last couple of days has been mostly about cooking for & sketching sick people for me.. And ended by finally getting the cold myself. So I threw grated, sliced, and whole ginger, into every dish I made and came to realize something that should have been so obvious a long time ago. Ginger is good with everything..!

even ice cream.

This is good for people who are starting to get sick.

Grated ginger on Lychee Sherbet (mine was with coconut jello)
+pear or any fruit.
So good.

Candied ginger and japanese horse radish* are great sweet snacks when you're sick too. I eat them straight out of the jar or add it in herbal teas.

*just cut ginger and horse radish to bite sizes and soak in honey over night.

Eat good and stay in shape, friends.

Thanks to Yumena for donating these crayons from Mother's!

san francisco

I am back from APE, and had a wonderful time sharing a booth/selling comics with my talented friend, Kelsey Short. (check out her stuff at nowhereplacedelicious brush work!) I think we did pretty darn well for our first time showing, and definitely want to do this again next year

+ My website is finally finished! I will have some items on Etsy soon, but until then please stop by for a visit! I'd love to hear from you. 

Special thanks to lovely Miya, who hosted the best meals while letting me crash on her bed. Did I mention she makes pop up porn books? She's brilliant. Homemade mushroom cheese ravioli with her pasta maker. Yum yum!
