Tell us about your work: “My work is about being self-motivated, self-critical, and reflective. It’s about being active in a diy punk scene. It’s about being confident and creative. It’s often about new chapters in my life where I’ve had to re-evaluate what I know and how I approach things. I never really think of my work as being political or having a feminist slant, but I forget that just making comics with a “strong female lead character” is still a statement of its own. I write comics as a way to connect to other people, and tell personal stories with some sort of universal feeling behind them. Recently someone came up to me while I was tabling at a zine fest. He read through half of my book. Eventually he looked up and said he really liked my book because ‘I can really relate to it but… it’s so…girly!’ He meant it as a compliment, and I took it as one.”
