Out Now: Social Distance Stories – Staying at Home Edition 1 “The Plan”
I made a mini zine. You can view it at www.instagram.com/p/B-K6bj0pf_L/
and/or support an artist (me) by buying a print version at puffytailcat.bigcartel.com
It is no longer on my etsy page because drama, oh and and etsy prohibited me from selling it.
So, on one side of it artist–me is like, “WTF?” But on another side artist–me is like, “Really?
I just got in trouble for a zine about anxiety, reading too much online news, hand washing,
procrastination and my cat — does that mean I’m edgy?” So, just saying, I might still be edgy.

Out Now: “Covid–19 Ate My Plans.”
I made a little video to go on Instagram with my pandemic–related updates
