I'm a cartoonist living in Minneapolis. Co-Author and artist of A Quick And Easy Guide To They/Them Pronouns. Author of Grease Bats, coming out Fall 2019 with Boom! Studios! If I'm not working I'm socializing. If I'm not out with friends I'm drawing. If I'm not doing any of those things I'm probably depressed. Support me using Patreon.

  1. THANK YOU this made me feel so much better! I get horribly overwhelmed around large crowds and all that, but incidentally I am doing almost exactly this and making a website index of important resources around my city/campus (or, trying. research I can do, fighting with wordpress themes is not so easy)

  2. This is wonderful! I attended a counter-protest at Planned Parenthood today (over 250 people showed up, and in a very conservative town/state! only about 10 for the true “protest”) and there was a bake sale component. So many delicious goodies with the money going toward a great cause! I like protests, personally, because it’s easy to forget how many like-minded people there are in my city & protests bring lots of them together all to one place. I totally get that some people aren’t down with them, though, and think it’s great to remind people that there are COUNTLESS ways to become involved with the resistance!
