The summer update is here! “Swim” zine has been reprinted, “Synchronized Swimmers” art fabrics are in along with two new mini prints. I really want to thank everyone so, so much for the amazing support over the years.
All the art fabrics are at very limited quantities so catch ‘em while they’re here for the initial launch!
Fruits of Our Labour for Reader’s Digest Magazine Illustrated by Jeannie Phan
A first-person account of Jill Chen, who dived head first into urban farming, along with her husband, growing as much food as she possibly could. If you’d interested, you can check out her website here.
When I heard the premise of this story, I was head over heels excited to work on it! If you know me, you’ll know that I was recently hit hard with the gardening bug. I had a great time channeling my garden envy into this illustration.
"Why I Hate Coffee Hour" for The United Church Observer Illustrated by Jeannie Phan
I channeled my introvert powers for this really relatable illustration. A tighter cropped version was run in print to have more of a claustrophobic feel (a good call!) but you can also check out the fullsize online here.
Really excited to be alongside so many wonderful, talented, and downright cool artists in this book. A huge, huge thanks to the folks at Kult (all the way in Singapore!) for putting together such a lovely publication, and for mailing me a copy all the way to Canada!
Black Hill Press + JukePop + California Public Libraries Summer Writing Project ￼Illustrated with Jeannie Phan
I’m really excited to announce that I’ll be illustrating the novella covers for the winners of this collaborative writing project!
Black Hill Press and JukePop are collaborating with California Public Libraries to ￼advocate writing and support reading with their Summer Writing Project. Both Black Hill Press and JukePop champion two abandoned mediums. Black Hill Press fights for the novella—a distinctive, often overlooked literary form that offers the focus of a short story and the scope of a novel, while JukePop is rejuvenating the lost art of the serial, pioneered at the dawn of publishing, when authors such as Charles Dickens received critical acclaim and feedback from mass audiences by serializing novels a chapter at a time.
This joint venture presents authors with the opportunity to craft their novellas a chapter at a time with immediate quantitative and qualitative feedback from their readers, while also broadcasting their words to an audience eager for the next great storyteller. The Summer Writing Project begins on June 1, 2014 and continues through August 31, 2014.
