"Plant Mom" Comic Series

March 30, 2017

I wanted to branch out from my usual watercolor pizazz and explore a more casual style of art. What better way than to ink? I love trying the different gradations of grey, black, and white, and discovering a  simpler character style.

And these days? I'm a white girl, living near DC, working my butt off building my small business, and am too afraid to commit to a baby or a pet. Aside from feeding my husband daily? I adopted a few plants. And so, Plant Mom was born!

Here are a few that I did early on to kick off the series:
