Omnichord Animals

Who wouldn’t want to be as cool as this guy???

I discovered Omnichords last summer while skipping randomly through the internet. A week from the day I learned of these magical instruments, I bought my OM200M on eBay. Since then, I’ve been strumming to synthesized drums like the all-knowing space goddess I imagine myself to be when I plug in my Omnichord.

Read about the history of Omnichords here!

I have noticed, in my time as an Omnichordist, a terrible dearth of Omnichordal ornamentation! So how about some Omnimals?

Are you an Omnichord enthusiast? Well, if you want this design (sans my name) on a shirt, a bag, or notebook to jot down your electronic compositions, I’ve set up a Redbubble page for this design.

I made this so I could have a bag to carry my Omni, and the drawstring bag (15 x 19.5″) is juuuuust long enough to hold it!  Plus, I was able to pattern these guys across the fabric, which I think turned out pretty neat-o.

Anyway, I’m really happy with how this turned out, and I’m excited to add more designs to Redbubble! If you have an idea for a t-shirt or mug, suggest it either in the comments or via email!

Introducing Bumantha

Hello all!  Five years ago I wrote a goofy little story about a woman who meets a stranger and her life (and couch) is forever altered.

I’ve now edited and converted that story into a series of four comics that I will show you in the coming weeks.  I hope you have as much fun reading them as I did writing them.

Here’s the first part to get you started!

Creature Crunch Challenge

I heard about this website, Streak Club, and decided to start a streak of my own.  For the entire month of March, I challenge myself (and anyone who’d like to participate) to draw one creature every day in any medium.  What constitutes a creature?  A creature is anything with a face, really.  Any combination of animals, vegetables, minerals, and so on can be a creature, as long as it has life.

Detective Opal (Unofficial Private Eye)

Some of you may remember my dynamic duo from last year, Opal and her tiny cow (who has been simply renamed “Tiny Cow”).  Well this year I put together a pitch for a point-and-click style storybook game!

I’ll only show a few tidbits here for reasons I’m sure you understand, but if you’re interested in working with me on this, email me!  I’d love to collaborate with someone who knows how to put together apps, as I think this idea would really work on digital tablets.

A filthy-yet-charming American city in the early 1900s, Grenadine is home to a colorful cast of characters.  All of them are possible perpetrators of various crimes ranging from minor to major.  Alternate endings reveal a different culprit each time!

What excites me about this project most is there isn’t a single character that I feel lukewarm about.  All of them are dynamic and exciting in their own way and I’ve been having so much fun writing stories for them.  Ultimately, I do want to make this a digital, interactive game, but in the meantime I will definitely develop a little book or two.

 

New Book!

Hey everyone!  My very first illustrated children’s book is now available!  There’s a Rainbow in the Mud is a story about a little girl and her plush monkey, who eventually “leaves” her.  If you know any children in need of a book about coping with the loss of a loved one, check out There’s a Rainbow in the Mud.

Thank you to everyone who encouraged me, and thank you to Sarah and Libby for giving me this amazing opportunity!

Get it at Amazon or Barnes & Noble!

Facebook Profile Art

It’s summer break and I have time to do something fun!

Your Facebook cover photo is the first thing people see when they visit your page, and you know what they say about first impressions.  If you’re tired of cliche, pixelated quotes, why not get a custom cover picture?

For just $5, I’ll create a full-color drawing of anything you like and email it to you!  It will be sized to Facebook’s cover photo dimensions, so all you have to do is upload it!  Feel free to use it for your personal site as well.

Here are some examples of past cover photos I’ve done:
