Today, September 26 at 6 pm EDT, feel free to lurk while I work on these commissions! If you would like me to draw you something, I have 7 spots available. More info is below the striking workers’ info.
~~DONATE TO THE EQUALITY TOLEDO FOOD PANTRY, SUPPORT THE UAW STRIKES~~
With major car companies having their workers go on strike, my hometown and the area around it are going to feel the effects the hardest. Here’s the page for Equality Toledo’s Food Pantry, a queer-inclusive food pantry raising funds and food for the workers on strike.
Starting today, and running until October 22, I’m showcasing my work at Aistear Brewing in Bowling Green, Ohio! Ah, my old stomping grounds.
I reached out to the owner and asked if he was interested in showing off my prints. He agreed – and he also offered me a spot in Aistear Con in October. These prints and mini-prints will be on display in their gaming area until the start of Aistear Con on October 22.
Not in the area? Some of these prints (but not all) are also available in my Ko-Fi shop. Some of the prints on the wall are exclusive to Aistear, though (sorry).
That’s all for now! Thank you for your support! Without it, I wouldn’t have gotten this far.
Imaginarium Convention is all about writers and other creative types, but it’s a show all about the craft. The panels they have me scheduled for are these:

For more details about the panels themselves, or to check the full (absolutely bonkers and lengthy) listing, check this link.
I’ll ask the event organizers if I can stream any of these panels for you to see. If I’m allowed, the panels may be streamed onto Facebook. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for further announcements on this.
If you’re unable to attend Imaginarium, then please check out these two new things my awesome friends released!
First, My friend Suzy Anderson has launched a KickStarter campaign! See, she runs this independent art and literature magazine called The Magnolia Review, and it’s on KickStarter right now to get funding for Volume 4, Issues 1 AND 2. Rewards include copies of the magazine, postcards, bookmarks, and other goodies!
Second, my friend Deci Belfry just launched their Facebook page to share (and sell) lithography prints, watercolors, and other art they make! Seriously, check out their printmaking portfolio. It’s gorgeous stuff! They also have a catalog of their work, and they do something called sliding-scale pricing. Be sure to check out the Facebook page for more.
That’s all for now. Thank you for reading!
You. Are. Awesome.
P.S. I’ll be making an update on Inktober after Imaginarium this weekend. <3
