Thank you to everyone who dropped on by, I had a super great time at NOR CON this past Saturday (8th Oct).
It was my first time being on my own but I was made very welcome and the assistants were super helpful.
The Wastelands sold really well which super surprised me. I hope I can come again next year!
Submission for The Peach Zine!

I was super fortunate to be part of the final feminist zine of Basement Babes. A Boston based zine group that promotes art and writing. I created this 'last of summer' girl gang illustration for them as a final farewell and a job well done for their efforts. A Youtube process video is also available!

Now that it's September it's pretty much Halloween (don't judge me) It's my favorite season and to celebrate I've created a special edition print that will be given out with every sale this Autumn!
It'll be given out at cons and any sales through my Petitecreme store front!

If you're in Belgium, check out the Art Base, Brussel (next to the comic museum) where I'll have a section of my work exhibited as part of the women's international comic art festival!
It'll be going from 8th -11th September!

Super happy that I'm part of Dirty Rotten Comics #8 this August!
A short 4 page comic featuring a girl dealing with her loss and finding comfort in an old friend.

It's available to by here!

I don't normally draw NSFW stuff but when I do I like my ladies owning demon pets!
Good art friend Matt Bailey hosted a book collaboration with profits going towards the charity of victims of sexual assault.
I created a colourful playful piece of my occult leader OC Nun and her Mayan demon pet who's totally in love with her. There's a lot of "demon owning the lady" styles but I wanted something fun and different.
You can see all the contributors here and if you want to help support Matt in raising money for his chosen charity, you can buy a physical copy here (He'll also be at London MCM comic con and Thought Bubble same as me this year)

Several months to redraw and edit over 100 pages to bring the next book version of The Wastelands to completion. I'm happy to finally bring it to print!

Additional mini story has been added too which was originally in my Patreon. I hope everyone is able to get a copy. The webcomic version will be updated later on. Book 2 covers chapters 6-11 following palace life with Amy and seeing how being a prince isn't all it's cracked up to be, Rahu also finally makes it to the Kingdom to catch a break.

I was invited to submit a couple of pieces for the Alfred East Art Gallery exhibition on comic work.
It was a rather sudden submission, I did send quite a couple of pieces but only 2 made it in.

It was a small exhibition of 2 rooms, one containing the difference processes of how fine/traditional illustration/art was created (drafts, layers of oils, composition etc) and how comics are created (script, thumbnails, inks, lettering etc)
It was rather an odd way to compare but I enjoyed how they went to lengths to really explain how comics are art and should also be treated as art.

The other room was full of donated published originals and female artists, including mine. Showing how versatile the styles people can create today. Just like the subject matter of old paintings, comics are take all shapes and forms. For a small exhibition is was densely packed and really well researched and informative. They even displayed an 1970's full comic originals of a Dracula story in inkwash and that was gorgeous!

You can read more about it here!
Thank you to the Alfred East Art Gallery for the oppertunity!

Took me 8 months to finally redrawn, compile and print this book with existing artwork from 2011-2013. The Wastelands #1 is directly the first book of The Wastelands series (Rahu being a standalone chapter) staring Amy who wakes up in an abandoned bus in the middle of an unknown field.

The original story came from 2008 after being involved with a bus crashed and experiencing vivid fever dreams afterwards. The first two chapters were used in my final project for university but have been completely redrawn for print (later online at Inkblazers and Tapastic).
Left 2011 page vs the 2015 version.

Book 1 covers chapters 1-5 around 112 pages, following Amy who is rescued by hunter-prince Kyror. Kyror, believing she may possibly be a sign from the gods that once lived among them takes it in his care to get her to to the Kingdom and seek help how to get her back home.
