1001 Knights: Fellowship

2018

1001 Knights is a massive 3-volume anthology edited by Annie Stoll and Kevin Jay Stanton. It's goal was to create people-positive characters with feminist overtones all around the concept of knights. There are over 260+ artist contributors that explore these concepts through illustration, comics, poetry, and prose. 

I created an 8-page comic that can be seen in the 2nd volume Fellowship around a girl, her older sister, a crazy old witch, and their talking dog who have to learn how to work together in strange ways to beat a board game that turns them into real life knights.

 

 

 

Dirty Diamonds #6 Beauty

2015

Edited by Kelly Phillips and Claire Folkman, Dirty Diamonds is an ongoing all-women comic anthology with contributors from all around the world. The anthology focuses on semi-autobiographical and autobiographical work and has gathered personal stories from women within the comic and creative industries since 2011. 

Issue #6 revolved around the topic of beauty and aimed to celebrate, examine, challenge and embrace the concept of beauty. My short comic in it revolved around my first surgery I had when I was 20 years old and the reactions I received about my abnormally large scar that made me rethink my concept of beauty standards.
