D.C. Zine Fest

3 Mar

Keeping in with Guy’s beautiful ferret banner for the D.C. Zinefest blog, I drew this (my rat Green Bean) for other zinefest materials.

rat attack

❤ j bee.

p.s. this was mostly inked in the dark which is why there are some screwy bits. not that there aren't screwy bits usually. also in the comic the rat brosef wants to hold is green bean, who is gray. because i forgot to shade her the rat that actually gets held is turnip. oops.

Turnip Mae and Green Bean are definitely growing.

And they pretty much have free range of climbing all over me and chewing on my hair. It’s pretty gross. I think I’ll have to join the Freedom to Marry Our Pets Society.

honorable mention wins plaudits, which are not money.

So my scanner is currently nonfunctional, not sure what’s up with that. But in the meantime, I got an honorable mention in the Baltimore City Paper annual comics contest. Look, my work is on a website! It’s not worth money and it’s not first place, but I am pretty excited about it anyway. Also enjoy these sweet tips on how to cartoon.

So since my scanner is broken I thought I would just take a picture of the other page I did for the Disorientation Guide:

Plus, I am a playground for ratties.

I just can’t get enough of my girls. It’s kind of gross how much I love them, and let them chew on my hair.

Last, make sure you go check out the Radical Bookfair Pavilion at the Baltimore Book Festival, not this coming weekend (which is Hampdenfest) but in like two weekends. There is a zine bazaar on Friday Sept. 25th and I am taking off school to be there, so hopefully you can also get your ass over there, at least for a little while to come give me hugs and/or coffee.
