I’m doing the bloggy thing to do, which is to write a year review. Here is my year in comics in 2012!
Dee’s Dream: The Cosmic Wombat House
Dee’s Dream: The Patriot Parlor
In 2012 started coming out with zines my series Dee’s Dream. Dee’s Dream: The Cosmic Wombat House debuted at MoCCA Fest in April. The second issue Dee’s Dream: The Patriot Parlor debuted at SPX in September. Dee’s Dream is about poetic bohemian Dee Fynch and her underdog garage band, which is also called Dee’s Dream. Both zines are over 16 pages.
House of Frame
My comics were in woman’s anthology Dirty Diamonds 2 and 3, The Work Issue and Travel Issue. For the work issue, which came out in April, I did a four page comic called House of Frame. The comic is about a young woman working in frame shop, who encounters a very difficult customer, who happens to be another young woman.
Lupa Cachula’s Life: The Hurricane
In comic I have in the Dirty Diamonds: Travel Issue, which was launched in December, I had another four page story called Lupa Cachula’s Life: The Hurricane. I came up with a new character Lupa Cachula who is a weird witchy outsider. Read it here. I’ll probably make more comics about her in the future.
From Suspect Device #2
In April, when Josh Bayer’s Suspect Device #2 came out, I had a one page comic in there. My strip is about issues with self image.
When one of the organizers of the Philly Feminist Zine Fest asked me to create the flyer for the event, I could not be happier! Also, I illustrated the cover image for the zine Dangerous Damsels which is an anthology about feminists fairy tales, and it is edited by zinester and festival organizer Sarah Rose.
Flyer by Bryan G. Brown and me.
My fellow cartoonist friend Bryan G Brown and I collaborated on a illustration for a flyer for the Asbury Park Comic Con 2. We tabled together at the show, and had a wonderful time.

I illustrated and covered a vintage comic cover for a non profit project called Comix Gone Rogue.
I ended up writing some articles that recieved major attention on the BUST Magazine Blog, and had an article in the very popular comics blog The Beat. I wrote about different comics shows and events such as: The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival, The Asbury Park Comic Con, Locust Moon Comic Con, and The US launch party for Strumpet Issue #2, an international anthology featuring women creators.
My Zine Crush
At the very end of 2012 I created a two page comic for Zine Crush #2.
Happy New Year! 2013 should be a great year! 13 is a actually a very lucky number! I hope I’ll make way more comics and do more of those things that I love to do.
