A small illustrated handmade book, a painting on wood of my mom in Polish costume, found postcard and a bottle that encases words, dried flowers.
A drawing that describes the distance I feel from my Polish family. Miss them dearly.
Working on hand drawing these covers for my new book debuting at PIX tomorrow! Each cover is different and the book includes a tiny envelope that houses a secret message written on Nepalese Loka paper. The book is a meditation on the art of disappearing. Hope to see you there!!
Location: 10 S.19th Street in the city’s South Side neighborhood.
Hours 10-5pm then the panels begin at 7pm!

She has exhibited her work at various indie comic shows and fan conventions such as Small Press Expo and Otakon. In 2013, her self-published comic Weapon Girls Vol. 01: Waltz was selected to be donated to the Small Press Expo Collection at the Library of Congress. She is currently working on a webcomic titled Ursula Minor, a magical realist dramedy about a girl raised by bears and her antics involving campers, girl scouts, and the like as she figures her way through adolescence.
