I love Peter Pan! Man, i watched the Mary Martin musical version and the Disney version like a thousand times as a kid, and also read various versions of the text with little-kid intensity. As an adult, some of the themes break my heart a little too much to even say. Children are, after all, heartless by adult standards, yet we credit them with an innocent sweetness which this book challenged and championed at the same time, way back in the Victorian era! These clearly show my debt to Mary Blair’s concept work for the Disney movie, but also have the slightest diversity which, frankly, can only help make up for the very iffy ‘Indians’ in the material. Can’t quite figure out how to handle them in an illustration without being gross, so have mermaids with afros instead!
Robin Robinson’s Discombobulated Albatross is VERY far from home!
my little guy isn’t sure how this whole space thing happened…
Giant ECCC 2014 booth!
Thanks to a friend, I have a few quick pics of my enormous double table at Emerald City Comic Con! Very embarrassing candid photos of my and my dude, look away from that part, but I love how the posters hung and my new jewelry display! I wish I had this much space at every show…even split posters up into two bins! Man I’m so short I can’t be seen over my own displays. Good thing Nate is tall. By the way, he is incredibly shy and nervous and self-conscious, so be nice to him. He thinks he scares people away!
I’ll be at Sakuracon this weekend with a nice 8ft-table, sharing a corner booth with Jennifer Cox aka Dancing Heron in the small press section, between the exhibitor area and artist alley! Come visit!
If you follow me and haven’t been reading my comic, now is a good time to start! You can always go back and read episodes 1 and 2, which are sort of origin stories.
Nate (my sweetheart/writer of my comic) and I are very proud of this chapter. It is two short stories twisted together, instead of solidly focusing on one or the other main character. Anyone who missed Ushala should be pleased to see her again, and Cor gets a sexy story so we finally earn our age warning! Honestly, I’m working to up my game with this episode, to craft the art better, to pick some challenging angles, to really push myself—as Nate did when he wrote and re-wrote the script for me.
Thank you, readers! We’re on smackjeeves btw.
I really love your artwork! It makes me feel all toasty and gooey like a toasted marshmallow :) will you be at sdcc?

Yay! Now I want s’mores. Unfortunately I won’t be a SDCC this year! I didn’t get in! Hopefully next year, right? I will be at Fanime in San Jose in May, Kumoricon in Vancouver, WA, Rose City Comic Con in Portland, OR, and Geek Girl Con in Seattle WA.
Unscrupulous Squirrel ala Robin Robinson
This sneaky character isn’t gathering his own acorns because he has a clever—if unscrupulous—plan. Experimenting with style a bit here.
