J to the Unicorn

Comics Every Tues @ Junicorn Stories on IG
Have you checked out Junicorn yet? It's a web comic/bio tale that my little one and I have been collaborating on this year.

Junicorn has some special needs that only enhance an incredible brain and hilarious/weird sense of humor.

I collect all the bizarre and funny things they say and then illustrate them. Some of the illustrated elements are also straight from Junicorn's sketchbook, such as creepy Baby Ethan the invisible boy who lives in our gross attic.

Comics post every Tuesday on Instagram @Junicorn Stories (which includes a link for all your Junicorn fan merch needs.)

Thanks for supporting our family project with your follows, likes and swag sales!!

I Like to Make Draw-er-ings

I had the pleasure of illustrating a large collection of pieces for MennoMedia this fall. We have worked together in the past and it's always a great experience! At least it is for me... :)

These are a couple of my favorites from this project.

What Has Two Thumbs & Just Sold a Papercut Illustration?

The Moth, 2018 papercut illustration
This guy! Errr... ME! 

Framing my latest papercut illustration piece The Moth turned out lovely. So much so, that she fluttered away to her new home within days. 

I will miss her, but it's the absolute best feeling when a piece of art finds a connection with an owner.  And I can subsequently pay my bills... 

This Guy!

Kind is the New Cool

Maggie is a unicorn in our latest design
When people send me snaps of their littles sporting our "Junicorn" design, especially the "Different Not Less" shirt, it makes my heart explode.

I'm feeling so positive at the movement of people teaching their kids about embracing kindness and making safe space for Atypicals and Neurotypicals to be friends. :)

If you want to wear a little Junicorn on your chest, check out our swag store.  And be sure to follow us on Instagram, comics post every Tuesday.

Slice n stab

Trying my darnedest to get this fairly large papercut piece finished and framed in time for the Lansing Art Gallery holiday exhibit.

I'm pretty swamped with illustration projects for MennoMedia and Pioneer Valley Books, and they take priority on the schedge, so if I don't pull this one out by November, it will end up at the gallery eventually this winter!

Let's cross our fingers that all the things get done in the nick (knick?) of time!
