Just in case anyone’s curious about how the book is made- especially the illustration and design side of things. Updated the rest of the website too, so if you haven’t been recently, might be worth it to take a look!

Hey folks! I’ve been a little off-the-map recently, moving down the street (still in Oakland). Anyway, been churning out this page for a few days and it’s slow going but really fun. I was getting ansty to update, so I thought I’d share a sneak peek from it, the Gender Across Communities page. Special thanks to Zuri who let me show his reference photo. It’s a really fun challenge to cartoonize people I’ve never met! Will post the full page within the week, I promise. Just have some website updates to do first…
And yes, I color-coded my dock. Don’t judge me.
