Not as excited about a new year so far but I’ll get there!
One of my friends keeps all his old photographs which I find super charming. 100s of photos on my phone or social media are NOT as special as physical photos. There’s a sadness to how overdocumented yet somehow more disposable our memories are today. I guess that’s why I still like having this space– blogging […]
My dreams of living in Jayne Mansfield’s Pink Palace have come true, junior sized! It’s not a trap house and it’s definitely not Mellencamp. A couple notes of gratitude: 1. I’m thankful for a husband who not only tolerates my color choices, but enthusiastically encourages bold color. 2. We’re both INCREDIBLY thankful that we hired […]
If Dean and I were going to have human children, I’d want to name them Garnet and Frieda Carter after the visionaries behind Rock City (also the inventors of mini golf– what heroes!). We’d wanted to see Rock City for ages but it was only after reading American Gods that we finally made plans with […]
Yesterday, Dean and I celebrated our anniversary. We’ve been together for 11 years and married for 6. My mom says, “ok, so 6 years,” hahaaa, but C’MON. We’ve been living together for over a decade. Our relationship is probably the thing I’m most proud of in my life and I love this dude. This year, […]
Last fall, we were lucky enough to catch the closing day of Wayne-O-Rama, Wayne White’s larger-than-life, candy-colored tribute to Chattanooga– its notable figures and Lookout Mountain. Holy shit, what a treat! I felt like I walked into a cartoon funhouse. And I learned a lot! It was such a delight (and free!) that we went […]
I’ve been driving for a little over four years now and I hate it more than ever. But I love road trips more than ever too! Last spring, my mom was back in the states for two family weddings so we were able to go on a fun weekend up toward North Carolina. Snaps from […]
Last year, I kept a comics diary of AthFest and thought I’d post some of those sketches with the festival coming up again (this week!). It’s funny to look back on these cuz 1. AthFest was totally Erin’s thing and this was her last one before moving overseas. I’ll miss seeing her tirelessly bouncing around! […]
This is the first of three TMI mini comics. My body had a months-long allergic reaction to lone star tick bites a couple years ago. I still break out in hives sometimes but it’s not that bad anymore. I try to laff about it now and be thankful it wasn’t worse!
I wanted to take a stab at Inktober and Erin, my creative partner in crime, was all in. We decided on a loose theme of “cool, hot famous people” and we both ended up QUITTING mid-October. Then we decided to finish the fan portraits for March which Erin totally did but I QUIT AGAIN. Here’re […]
