Adventures in Mochimochi Land: Official Trailer

I’m excited to share an official trailer for my new book, Adventures in Mochimochi Land!



So that's a little taste of the fun that’s coming June 9th. You can also read a preview of the first story in the book here

Adventures in Mochimochi Land is coming out June 9th! It’s now available for preorder from Amazon, from Barnes & Noble, and from Powells, among other places. Signed copies are also available for preorder from me in the Mochimochi Shop. Or if you have a local bookstore or yarn store that you support, please ask them if they’ll carry it! 

Thanks to Maureen Boyle for putting the trailer together!

There are many uses for wool in Mochimochi Land! (Too many, maybe.)

Character Portraits Book

I'm thrilled to have my work featured in Pictoplasma's new book Character Portraits


As you can see, the gnomes are thrilled too! 

Gnomes looking at gnomes looking at gnomes looking at gnomes... I like this theme becuase it reminds me of how I'm constantly making stuff that looks back at me. 

The image is of the Gnome Team Selfie I made for Pictoplasma's Portrait Gallery in 2014. The book is full of portraits of all manner of characters by some wonderful artists whose work I look up to. Get it on the Pictoplasma website



Happy Baa-lentine's Day



When love is in the air in Mochimochi Land, the results come quickly. May love blossom all around you this weekend!

Group Show: WonderWomen at University of Minnesota

As it happens, I have work in another group show that starts with a W this month! 

WonderWomen, at the University of Minnesota's Katherine E. Nash Gallery, is a show of works by female artists who are influenced by comics and other pop culture. I sent them some animations from the past year and this assortment of tiny mochis. 

But I'm burying the lede here: I'm in a group show that also contains work by Alison Bechdel! Along with others whose work I admire, and others whose work I look forward to exploring. Here's a closer look at the show information:
