Update: One Cartoon at a Time

When I started drawing comics, I was a desperately single, Asian daughter of immigrant parents. Today's 3-part cartoon on how I began making comics. 

If you would like to help me continue cartooning, consider buying me a coffee on my new Ko-fi page: http://ko-fi.com/cartoonconnie

Happy holidays and a big thank you for reading and supporting.

Update: ThinkerCon

Excited to be at ThinkerCon 2018, a gathering of cool folks who are making awesome things online. I'm surrounded by scientists, tinkerers, artists, and media influencers. Science is real and so is imposter syndrome.

Negotiating Conflicts in Adulthood

TFW you're self-aware enough to have regret.

Far easier to never hold yourself accountable though.

Mind the Creative Gap

This interview quote from Ira Glass was one of the things that got me cartooning. In the original interview, he talks how we have better taste as creatives than what we are able to produce when we start out. That has always stuck with me.

Some Sketchbook Fan Art Inspired By Climbers

A period of life transitions. Fighting my way out of some blues. Climbing helps, but my mental game hasn’t been strong. Trying to rebuild confidence and climb on, one move at a time.

Sketchbook fan art inspired by climbers and explorers. 
Sketched from @pablo_durana’s stunning photo of The North Face #tnfantarctica17 expedition.

Update: Goodbye to Daily Cartooning

7 years ago, I started my practice of daily cartooning. It was the best thing I ever did for myself. 

Today, I'm starting a new full-time job. 

I'll continue writing and cartooning, but I decided to let go of my daily cartooning practice. 

It makes me a little sad, but I think it's necessary for me to grow and make room to to take on other creative projects. Maybe this will make me a better artist.

It's not really a goodbye. For now, I'll scale back to doing comic strips on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Thanks to everyone who has read along and cheered me on over the years. It has meant everything to me. 

Stay tuned for new and different projects ahead.
