character desgns + scene for class! the assignment was to design two rivals.
for the past 3 years, this webcomic I draw & write called Best Friends Forever (#bffcomic) has been my life! now that I’ve switched to updating in chunks (more fun to write & to read) it’s a great time to look for avenues to BFF’s continued growth & improvement. that’s where this awesome site patreon comes in!
WHY BFF IS SUPER FUN
- character driven high school drama
- nerds. football players. wild parties. hot dads
- diverse characters!! queer themes!!!
- almost 250 pages long and always growing!
- lively + colorful artwork

cheerleaders for character design class!! the assignment was to do our own spin on the five man band.
for my maps class we had to make a map of a fictional place - I chose the kitchen from Ratatouille - it’s one of my favorite movies!
commissions!!! thank you so much, everybody!
I’ve been getting interested in the world of high-school themed doll sets (things like Monster High, Ever After High) so for an individual project this semester I created one! It’s called “Astro Academy”, the characters are a variety of space creatures & aliens, except for the human (her name is Dawn!)
This was kind of a weird project for me - this definitely isn’t my usual style. I had a lot of fun doing it though, and I want to make tons of outfits for them all now!!
If you want to read about the characters and the little “story”, I put the document up on my portfolio site!
it’s Best Friends Forever’s third anniversary! apparently in anniversary tradition the 3rd year theme is “leather”?? so here is biker Teddy and
biker babe Vincent. please wear your helmets, kids…
I just want to take a moment to thank everybody again for sticking with me this year - I’ve had a lot of ups and downs but I’ve come out feeling better than ever about where I’m going with BFF. I hope you guys will be as excited for this new year’s pages & plot developments as I have been planning them! 3 years is kind of a long time for a webcomic (it seems that way to me, anyway) and I really appreciate all the support I’ve gotten from friends & fans for all this time. BFF has the best readers around, thanks so much you guys!
remember when Noiz was gonna impress Aoba with his Hot German Mountain Man woodcutting skills but just ended up basically chopping his finger off, refusing to seek medical attention, and the whole trip just turned into Aoba babying the frick out of Noiz
okay but really dobie hi!! I’m your fresh friday and I hope it’s not weird that I drew this random thing you tweeted but I thought it was a really cute idea…
I almost didn’t do a new year’s drawing because I was working on the new chapter, but I drew this up quick tonight! angel told me it was year of the horse and gave me the idea for this picture~
thanks everybody who’s stuck with me & bff throughout the year! hopefully next year will bring new & better things for all of us!
for my lifestyle illustration class, the infamous “dolls” assignment - every week we had to draw referenced outfits. I used my comic characters as my models! I used a slightly different style on them to make drawing the clothes easier.
many of the outfits are from lookbook or polyvore, some are from magazines, a couple I saw on TV shows, and there’s a few I patched together myself!
(funny side note: I didn’t know that Mac Miller was a musician or whatever, I honestly thought that was a t-shirt for a water park…..oops………
side note #2: IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY)
in the photoset viewer, you can Right Click-> Open Image in New Tab to see them bigger!
I took a basic storyboarding class this semester, and for the final we had the option to make a kind-of animatic and this is what I made! the song is Helix Nebula by Anamanaguchi. I was kind of nervous to put this on Tumblr, but here you go! it’s about a space fantasy a beach girl has while she’s skateboarding~
