I’m working on some more designs that support my Dee’s Dream comics. Above is my latest one. A print of this will be available just in time for National Bike Month. I also have another design in progress right now. Expect an update super soon.
You haven’t had a chance to meet up with other female comics enthusiasts in a while? Tonight is the night! Pre-MoCCA Fest (The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art’s Festival) party Drink and Draw Like a Lady will be held in midtown Manhattan tonight! This will be the fifth year this event is held and it is organized my New York cartoonist Lucy Knisley. This year it is held a bigger venue called The Productive, when previously it was held at 192 Books a bookstore in Chelsea. So come out, meet other women who are really in comics and trade some mini comics and business cards! Here is the address:

I had such a good time at this event in the past. I had been to it the last two years it has been held. One time, my friends and I were the featured participates on Lucy’s blog.
Dee’s Dream is coming to Asbury Park today! The issue is on sale and the band plays a show at the NJ shore. By the way, this comic is hand-bound with 100% Irish Linen from the EU. This is what I had to write about this issue:
Dee’s Dream hits the jackpot when they score a show opening up for the popular local band Coco Blue Sunday at the famous rock club the Rose Bull down the Jersey Shore. Ula and Dee are initially pumped to let their inner water nymphs out. This is the most exciting and sexiest episode yet! Will this show down the shore be just what Dee’s Dream needs? Will it be a waste of energy? Will thing end on a bad note? Time to find out!
Here are some pages from the comic book:
Also, here is some music. There isn’t a Dee’s Dream soundtrack, yet. Please listen to the Cars, for now.
Bryan and I collaborated on this very funny comix zine Blueberry Boy of Asbury Park. It is debuting on this Saturday at the Asbury Park Comic Con! Pick it up. Bryan and I will both be there with our comics and art. Here is some pages of our zine:
Bryan makes comics about martial arts. Here are some examples of his work:
I plan on printing a long lost comic I drew in 2009. I hope to print DIY it soon. Here is an illustration from it I recently colored. The book will have around 60 pages! Also, I took some detail shots.
I just finished this illustration from the non profit project Comix Gone Rogue. It is a cover of a Youngblood cover (actually the comic that inspired me is called Awesome Youngblood #1). It is a portrait of the character Suprema. Here it is…
I took some snapshots to document the of the progress of my work. I think would be good idea share them, so people can gain insight on the way a I work. I wish I took a couple more photos, like one of just the pencil work, but here is what I have.
Here is a photo of the pencil work being inked.
This is what the project looked like after it was inked and he pencil lines have been erased.
This is what the cover looked like when it was almost near complete. I did make some changes since this point. In my rendition, Suprema reminds me of Xena:Warrior Princess.
There. Those were the photos I wanted to show you about the process of my cover piece for Comix Gone Rogue. More blog posts soon.
Happy full moon, everyone! As synchronicity would have it, I have been working on a full moon illustration for an upcoming cover for a Dee’s Dream zine. I created a few different colored themes. I’m wondering which one I like the best… If you want to share your thoughts about which combination of color is best, please message me at your earliest convenience.
It was the night before the Philadelphia Body Painting Competition at the Philadelphia Tattoo Arts Convention and I could not get any sleep. I decided it would be a good idea to paint on myself as a warm up before the big day. Tutorials on doing “anime eyes” were plaguing my mind (like this one). So, I tried it. I was pleased with my results! I costumed myself as the popular Sailor Jupiter from the legendary shojo manga Sailor Moon. My anime eyes were a hit with my friends! I used water based theatrical makeup, but you would be able to get away with using heavy pigmented eye shadow creme and eye liner. This is the anime makeup style which you keep your eyes closed for those big, and kawaii anime eyes. Here is step by step tutorial on how to get “anime eyes”! I break it down to six easy steps!
Step One: Paint your whole eyelids white.
Step Two: Paint each iris. Mine are green in this case.
Step Three: Create black eyelids and eyelashes
Step Four: Create pupils with black.
Step Five: Glue on eyelashes to eyebrows! Isn’t that funny?
Step Six: Add white shiny highlights.
There you have it! Beautiful anime eyes to impress your friends with. Send me photos of yours when you create them! Dretime at gmail dot com.
