I'm on NPR!

I did a number of illustrations for "Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches' Guide to Romance Novels" by Sarah Wendell and Candy Tan, and they were just interviewed on NPR's "All Things Considered." You can hear their interview here. www.npr.org/templates/story/st… You can also see my illustration on NPR.org!

Here's Mavis, the stereotypical romance novel reader, as described by Sarah and Candy:



"Beyond Heaving Bosoms" is available to buy now. www.smartbitchestrashybooks.co… It's a hilarious book with lots of great illustrations, by me and Carol Main. Check it out!

Oh wow, that's awesome you got to be on NPR. That's really good! Darn, I wish I had to money to buy these books & magazines you've been mentioning. My original intent was to, but I seriously am broke (thanks to no luck with finding a job), so I can't spend any money (except for bills). But hopefully something will come...and when it does, you better believe I'll be buying the book (and the magazines you had mentioned before).

That illustration is hilarious. "Frock Barn", eh? Oh dear. *Laughs*

Good luck with finding a job, I hope you can buy all this soon! :)

Yeah, there's an actual "Dress Barn" in Phoenix... I always thought that was the most hilarious name for a clothing store!

Thanks. I need it. I went to an interview today, so we'll see what happens after that.

"Dress Barn"? There's such a place. That is a funny name. The first thing that comes to mind is country-style clothing. :-p

Hey, thanks! Isn't it a great blog? Even Neil Gaiman just referred to them as "wonderful"! They're so cool. :D

Well if Neil Gaiman thinks it's wonderful, it must be wonderful! :)
