Pink Elephants: A Sneak Peak!

I've been very hard at work for the last few weeks on my submission to the upcoming Womanthology. It's one of a handful of comics in the book that is written, penciled, inked, and colored by one person and I'm very proud and excited about it! The story, Pink Elephants, is important to me because it heavily draws from personal experience--the main character, a studious seven-year-old named Lyddie, has such anxiety about not being able to sleep that she worries herself into...well, not sleeping. Her mom takes her from doctor to doctor in an attempt to end her insomnia. The theme of Womanthology is "heroic," and the conclusion of Pink Elephants reveals who slips into the role of hero and gets Lyddie to sleep again.

Above is part of an inked panel, in which Lyddie visits a psychologist. (His character design is based on Peter Lorre.) Next it's onto color and the comic will be complete!


  1. I love the line work. You have a really dynamic, expressive line. So glad I found your blog.

  2. Oh I just love her. :) Can't wait to see more!
