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. Oh that is so true for me too. I get caught up in rolling circular thoughts like…..
    What if it’s cold
    What if it’s hot
    What if we go on a hike
    To the beach
    To a fancy dinner out.
    Which toys should I bring
    What if it rains
    Shoes. Which shoes go with my chosen outfits

    Then it’s just “ oh fuckit I’ll take it all” and never wear half of it. 🤦🏻‍♀️

  2. When I used to go on holiday to non English speaking countries this was me with books. I’d pack an entire library.

    (I don’t go abroad much anymore because of my light sensitivity)
