Hourly Comic Day 2017!

February 2nd, 2017

Yesterday was Hourly Comic Day! Where you draw a comic about every hour you’re awake, from midnight to midnight. Some people post theirs as the day goes along, but I always wait until the next day to post them all.

This is a weird year and a weird time. There’s a lot of stressful stuff going on. And I’m still coming down from the craziness of my book tour last fall, while working on my next book! It keeps me busy, but I’ve also tried to make room for friends, family, and self care. I hope you’re all doing the same.

Below are my hourlies, typos and all. I did these without penciling or planning–just jumped right into the sketchbook with a Sharpie. Thanks to everyone who was a part of my day.

















Happy New Year (and Thanks)!

January 18th, 2017

Thank you so much to everyone who played a role in the GHOSTS TOUR!!! I had an unforgettable time touring the United States and Canada, meeting so many of my amazing readers!
