Happy Holidays

Wow, it's been a while since I updated my blog. I'd just been so busy. My Christmas was really good this year. I hope you guys had a good one, too.

The Kitchen Witch #1

The Kitchen Witch #1 is available for the iPad and Android!
It's a comic about about one cool witch, one evil gremlin king, and one little boy trying to connect to his super busy, famous chef father. There's lots of action, adventure, monsters, and good times.

Written by Steve Orlando. Penciled and inked by Olivia Pelaez. Colored by Heather Breckel. Lettered by Matty Ryan. (Above illustration is watercolors and ink by O.Pelaez)


You have to download the respective apps and then you can read issue 1 for FREE.

And here are some pretty knits I made recently. The weather is finally starting to get nice and chilly and all I can think about is yarn. ^^ (Top photo: Heart Felt Ring and Toast fingerless mitts. Bottom photo: Dream Stripes shawl.)

Little Dorit

I've never read the book, but I'm loving the Masterpiece Theater Classic! Maybe I'll read it afterwards...
Little Dorit is little just like me.
She has a shawl, and so do I.


P.S. Check out my podcast's website. We're holding a New York Comic Con contest.

This is a quick painting I made last night. She is a witch and one of the main characters in a comic I am currently working on. She can be quite quirky and tough! ^^

Here's the post where I first talked about this comic book.

I'm busy working on a four issue mini-series, and took a little break to color a page of the "Randy the Ragamuffin" comic I had made. You can purchase the black and white comic in my etsy shop.

 Randy is so silly.

Another sketch. This is some random girl with lots of birthmarks, drawn because I have lots of birthmarks. :)

Spinner's End

"Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince" written by J.K.Rowling, Chapter 2 "Spinner's End" pg 22, american edition.

I love watercolors and the translucency of the colors. It's why I love my original paintings way more than these digital scans because they never seem to convey the colors quite as accurately nor the way the light reflects off of them. Recently, I started delving into hand-dyeing my yarns. I'm really enjoying the process.

Here's an example of yarn I over-dyed with Kool-Aid. It started off a bright Teal blue color and I darkened it with yellows, blues, and purples.

This is a quick sketch I drew on Sunday morning while watching the McLaughlin Group. I finally got around to inking it. I've been busy with commissions.


I finished making a very light shawl for myself. It's made out of lace merino. It's warm yet light and big considering I only had one skein of this particular yarn (about 405 yards). It's so lovely to wear ^^

I have one other shawl that I've made and it's aran acrylic. Heavy. Kind of hot. Not the greatest. I think I want to make myself one more shawl out of dk wool/merino and make it HUGE. The wingspans on both of these shawls is 60". I want something a bit larger to really wrap/snuggle up in for especially the winter. It gets a bit drafty at my drawing table.

I really enjoy these small paintings. They're like little notes I write to myself.

 This one measures 3"x2.25", though a little smaller if you don't count the border. I plan on adding it to my Etsy shop later on.

Another thing I'm really loving right now is knitting with my merino yarn. It's so soft. I own a couple of random skeins of wool in too too bright colors and I can not wait to finish working on the projects I have lined up because I plan on dyeing those oddball skeins... with KOOLAID... it's gonna be so much fun! :D

Boy Wizard

I took a small break from comics and my commissions to paint this. I love "The Unwritten."

Tommy Taylor is a boy wizard from the comic book, The Unwritten, written by Mike Carey and illustrated by Peter Gross. 

Here's a review I wrote for Volume 4 of the collected trade paperback.

Now, I'm off to work on more comics :)
