I’m going to England!

Friends! I’m so excited to be going to the UK for a working trip for most of July! I’ve never been, but it’s always been on my artist bucket list. I can’t wait to peruse the streets, sample the fish and chips, and try to become invisible sketching at cafes! I’ll be primarily in theContinue reading “I’m going to England!”

STILL STACE is officially launched!

Sheesh CA-PEESH. Wowie wow WOW! I feel like this is the first time I’ve been able to properly reflect on this beautiful road I have been on since Still Stace published on Oct 19, 2021. I’m so grateful that even though my book released whilst we were all still navigating the pandemic, we still managedContinue reading “STILL STACE is officially launched!”

A Blessing for our beloved trans youth.

The laws happening in Texas targeting trans youth is absolutely breaking my heart. Our trans brothers and sisters (never mind youth) are already such a vulnerable community and they do not deserve this. I wish I could do or say more, & I am struggling. So I wrote this Blessing. Sending so much love toContinue reading “A Blessing for our beloved trans youth.”

HERE TO QUEER Podcast

I was recently invited onto Julie Rodgers’ new podcast “Here to Queer”! We had a lovely conversation about queer books for kids and teens & why they are important. We also chatted about the writing process, since both of us wrote a memoir (her book Outlove, mine Still Stace) – how do you decide whatContinue reading “HERE TO QUEER Podcast”

The Journey to STILL STACE

I was really honoured to be asked by two very different places to do a talk on STILL STACE. They were both recorded and can be seen below. I shared about how/why I came up with the idea, a bit about my upbringing, the process of writing and the art, and answered some various questionsContinue reading “The Journey to STILL STACE”

Unboxing STILL STACE.

WHOAAAAAAAAA. I’ve been waiting a LONG time for this day. To open the author copies of MY FREAKING OWN BOOK. That I wrote and drew and how is this real. It’s a box of literal dreams that I unpacked and my heart is a-BLAZING. Tams and I waited til the kids were in bed, andContinue reading “Unboxing STILL STACE.”

Love for “Still Stace”.

Six weeks from this Tuesday, Still Stace will be out into the world. It feels like a dream slowly coming true. (It IS!) I’ve been working quietly in my office for what feels like a LONG time, and now it’s slowly getting into people’s hands. WHOA. I’m trying to savour each exciting thing that happensContinue reading “Love for “Still Stace”.”

Paintings for “Rhyme Time Town”

I almost never get to post my animation design work, because it is typically tied up in NDA’s. I’m so happy I can share a few of the MANY backgrounds I painted for the DreamWorks production “Rhyme Time Town” (airing on Netflix)! I have worked in animation for over ten years, and this was probablyContinue reading “Paintings for “Rhyme Time Town””
