Cameron is an illustrator hailing from Ohio. When she’s not drawing, she’s probably very, very quietly having loud thoughts about: queer things, her eventual shop, what to watch next on Netflix, food, names for her future pets, and tumblr.

Cameron has written 76 articles for us.


  1. Cameron’s have been my favorite Saturday morning cartoons, and this is far and away the loveliest (so far) !

  2. I would love to have this as a print on my wall. So touching and ethereal? Accurate? It moves me and reminds me how I think about the world.

  3. As above, so below! This is wonderful, so so so wonderful.

    It triggered sparks, and now I have these lovely scribbled notes next to me, which will likely evolve into a little piece about asexuality & aesthetics.

    thank you. thank you. thank you.

    • I hope this isn’t weird to say, but I would happily read a piece on asexuality and aesthetics, that sounds beautiful

  4. This is wonderful – sad – but really precious in the way it , I can’t think of the word – honours? – the emotions you’ve had and the universes themselves that you’ve loved.

  5. I am in the middle of this exact process, half drowning in that final panel over someone who changed everything and then vanished, and, just, my word, Cameron. Thank you for making this.

  6. How does a person just end? It is an outrage to the heart.

    This is beautifully done, and clearly brings up so many different things to different people.

  7. Is it possible I’ve seen this somewhere else because I recognise it. I remember the words because they’re so resonant.
