Queer colouring pages!

I did something fun with OutChristian – an awesome organization that works to connect LGBTQ people of faith! They asked me if I would want to design & draw some queer-themed colouring pages, to remind us all that we will once again be able to gather with friends in our communities. Of course, I neverContinue reading “Queer colouring pages!”

It’s complicated.

I almost didn’t post this. But I’m 40 now, so screw it, I’m not editing myself anymore! I wrote this after a recent visit with my parents. (I hid this from them  on social media. Because I do love them and don’t want to hurt them. But being honest about hard things is important.) ThisContinue reading “It’s complicated.”

Learning to be brave.

Well, shoot. Right now I am working on final revisions for my manuscript for “Still Stace”. I’m also reading Glennon Doyle’s “Untamed”. This is quickly becoming a tumultuous, beautiful, terrible, gut-wrenching, wonderful, life-changing gift. I have to read it very slowly, digesting it in small bits. Sometimes in the bath (the only place to readContinue reading “Learning to be brave.”

This is 40.

Yesterday, I turned 40. I’m not sure how that is possible, when inside I feel no older than 14! Life is (real) messy right now, but I woke up feeling stupidly grateful to be alive, and convinced myself to take my first selfie ever because WELL WHY NOT. Are bathroom selfies still a thing?! (RevealingContinue reading “This is 40.”

From the Archives: “Tah-Dah”!

Upon graduating from Sheridan College in 2009, I completed my thesis animated short film entitled “Tah-Dah”. It ended up making it into over 40 film festivals and winning two awards in filmmaking! I went to LA twice for festivals, and to Hawaii & Maryland to teach animation workshops. I sure squeezed a lot out ofContinue reading “From the Archives: “Tah-Dah”!”

Schitt’s Creek fanart

I know I am late to the fanart train for this show, but I have loved this clearly Canadian classic since it started airing here – well before it got wider acclaim! I grew up in Winnipeg watching Eugene Levy & Catherine O’Hara and their amazingly brilliant antics on SCTV. I would curl up atContinue reading “Schitt’s Creek fanart”

Pride.

It’s the last day of pride month. 🌈 2020 has felt more formative for me than ever. My gay Christian journey started when I was 16, but now that I am (so very) close to the big 4-0, I feel like I am just beginning in a lot of ways. I’m truly learning what itContinue reading “Pride.”

A parent-scare + restore-faith-in-humanity story.

As a parent, you never know when your kids will get hurt, but you are always waiting for it on some level. (And when you have a 2.5 yr old son like mine, you wait for it every day.) We explored a new place last night, a walking trail (mostly concrete) around a man-made lake.Continue reading “A parent-scare + restore-faith-in-humanity story.”

Church.

Pausing along the Maple Ridge / Pitt Meadows Dyke trails to breathe in the mountain fog. Right now, this is my church. On my bike, sweating down these trails, God and I have it out. Almost every day. This (quarantine) time feels uncertain, in more ways than one. So, I confess my scariest fears. MyContinue reading “Church.”

Local travel posters

Since I work full-time in children’s animation and illustrating kids books, sometimes I love to dust off my graphic design skills for fun. I have always loved those vintage-esque travel posters – but who is traveling anywhere right now?? Well, they are opening up some local things around us, which helps ease the Groundhog DayContinue reading “Local travel posters”
