The first piece I received for the latest round of submissions was Emma Tolley's phenomenal tribute to the eerie owls in FEZ. Literally as I was sending out invites and getting responses back, she sent this in. And I was blown away!
Her vector/hexel work is a perfect fit (and you must check it out) for FEZ, but I was excited to see her do something a bit painterly too!
I’m planning on updating on Mondays and Thursdays ideally, so keep checking back. And to all of the new followers, hello and welcome! Where are you coming from?
If you assign every English letter a number value (ie: A=1, Z=26) then somewhere within the number pi is your entire life, including all the thoughts you’ve ever had, will have, and didn’t know you had. Your childhood, career, and eventual anticlimactic death are all there, supporting the fabric of the universe.

Today I witnessed something amazing. Almost in stark contrast to yesterday, today I saw tangible impact of lady-representation in comics.
At the bookstore I work at, we have a dedicated Adventure Time section. This family came in and those kids were SO EXCITED to see their favourite characters in comics. I talked them through each OGN and series compilation, explaining what they all were and in what order they should be read, and this little girl’s entire life was changed. You could see it on her face.
The moment I mentioned Kate Leth (and that, yes, she is a girl.) this little girl’s face lit up like Christmas morning. I don’t know if it just never occurred to her that girls can work in comics but the excitement and wonder that left the store in her was a privilege to see. I ended up selling them the Fionna & Cake’s, all the OGN’s, and an AT doodle book. She left begging her dad to help her learn how to draw Marceline comics. (And he was happy to comply!)
Kate Leth has left an everlasting impression on this little girl just by existing and working in the industry. I honestly hope to someday be able to see such an impact on someone from my own work. Ladies in comics is important. The representation on the page, and behind them, is important. Having a reflection of yourself in the content you enjoy is important. I hope that little girl grows up to be a famous comic author someday.
It was a very good day.
I don’t even know what to say, I think my heart exploded. This is, I think, the best response I could ever hope for.
