I'm exploring the DIY scene of mini comix, zines and other self-published books. Collaborating with others to make small runs of little books is fun. I also lead comics workshops like this one on youth and family homelessness.

I illustrated Anu Taranath's upcoming book Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World, coming out in 2019 from Between the Lines Press. Decided to make this booklet as a marketing tool and keepsake for the author to give out before, during and after the release.

I led a comics making workshop at an event focused on youth and family homelessness with the Seattle Public Library. Some of the participants were unhoused themselves. To learn more about my approach, and download the materials to replicate this workshop yourself, follow the link above.
