happy year of the rabbit, i will draw a bunny before the lantern festival <3
i will code my own blog eventually grrr (CSS is so tough haha) in the meantime... i stay silly :3i started teaching the winter cohort of my students earlier this month! they are always such a great batch of people who are very excited to learn and it revitalizes my love and joy for art all the time. such a different experience from being a university student and way less stressful.i wish people would mask indoors again. it makes me feel insane that everyone listened and agreed with white supremacists all because they think disabled people should die. i am also sad about the numerous shootings and acts of violence that happened during LNY, Chinese/Asian and Black people must hold our communities close in what should be a time of celebration and care with BHM approaching too.in other news, my work will appear in in the third batch of art launches for Lights on the Exchange / Allumez le Quartier in the downtown Exchange District in Winnipeg. i hope it adds magic to downtown.

taught my last comics class of the year and omg the kids are so sweet and chaotic like they started talking about insufferable classmates who are bullies and they were like ‘yeah some guys… words don’t work, only action’ djjfbgndk but also that they really like me as a teacher and wish i was teaching other teen classes 🥺💖 i printed all their final projects in a zine for them and included a lesbian witch + frog 2 page comic for them which i was already drawing to give demos and stuff!! their work looks sooooo nice in a little zine!
