Coming Soon

Coming Soon.... my own attempt at a self-published e-booklet collection (and possibly via MagCloud for print distribution). Sometimes, I get myself into these things and the only way out is to see yourself though. Exciting, terrifying... but, best of all, an amazing collection that I am SURE you are going to love. I'll keep you up to date on the release date. Not too long now!

Twist Collective, Winter Issue!

I haven't posted in eons, but for a good reason, I promise! Lots of fun projects in the works, including a collection that you will want to get your hands on... wink.

While you eagerly await said news (I know you ARE eager, aren't you?), check out the latest issue of Twist Collective! You are going to be awed by the amazing talent that shines through the pages. Jaina by Thayer Preece? Consider me awed. Zosia by Marnie MacClean reduces me to a puddle of envy.

Can you believe I get to be a part of this collection?
I hope you enjoy Okame as much as I do!
