I made a new zine recently! It is called Dork Lifestyle. It is a collection of my comics from Fierce and Nerdy. Fierce and Nerdy is a great website that my good friend Ernessa T. Carter created. If you don't read it, you should!
Not only does this issue of Dork Lifestlye feature my comics about hitch hiking, Henry Rollins, and high school, but it also shows some new comics that were not published on the Fierce and Nerdy website and that are only available in this issue! Super!
You can get my newest zine on my personal website here, or at Shoppe Sugar Cookie on Etsy!

I started to draw some things I found at thrift stores and a few self portraits. I like to draw clothes, so I focused on that. I also love to draw bunnies, so I added that, too! Only I am not good at picking up our pet rabbits at all. They are much too wiggly!
Here is a mug, a ceramic planter, and a dress I found at thrift shops. I might put them into a zine some day.
These are some drawings of clothing I got in vintage shops. The first one is me in the 1990's wearing a shirt dress from a friend and some Doc Martens shoes that I bought a few sizes too big. Why did I do that? The other pencil sketch is a top I got downtown - it makes me look like a waitress!
I found this plush squirrel at a thrift sale - and this squirrel is wearing a pink floral pattern dress!

Fluke 2012 was so much fun! We had our table set up with all of our comics and zines, plus I added some of my Tofu Baby plush and cupcake plush. Oh, and lots and lots of one inch buttons!
Fluke is held at the 40 Watt club in down town Athens. It used to be at another club called Tasty World, but then the event grew so much that this venue is needed now. I really like being at the 40 Watt cos it is such a great place in Athens to see bands play. Now it is a great place for self publishing!
Here is our new friend Katie! We met her friends, too - so that was really great! She is a fan of Tofu Baby! We had a good time having dinner with them. I was so tired by the end of the day that we had to eat burgers and fries at Clocked, the diner up the street. It hit the spot after a long day of talking to everyone at the fair.

A few weeks back our friends Matthew and Melanie got married! We were so happy to attend this lovely wedding, here are some of my photos from their special day. Matthew told me many of their wedding decorations came from Etsy, and much of it was really cool and creative; I loved seeing everything!
Check out these cakes! That was a lot of cake! So much cake that we had some the next day. Yum! This cake was red velvet flavor. Sweet!
Here is their "guest book" that is a vinyl record. Everybody signed this record for Melanie and Matthew, how cute is that?
Here is the happy couple! Melanie looks so pretty in her dress.
Their dog, Jack, was the ring bearer. Jack was such a good dog during the whole thing, and everyone laughed when he was walked down the aisle! I love his face.
Here is me having a cocktail! It made me woozy!
Then I ate lots of cotton candy! Yes, they had a cotton candy machine maker at their wedding! What a great idea! I loved this. I love cotyon candy. I am not sure, but I might have liked cotton candy more than the cake.
We danced, ate food and cake, had cotton candy, and talked to all of our friends! Congrats to Matthew and Melanie on their wedding day! We are so happy for you and we loved sharing this day.

We visited ATHICA for their most recent art exhibit, Upcycle. It was Earth Day, so we had a good time looking at local art made from recycled and unsuspecting materials.
This camper made by the Cap Man was really neat. I especially liked the pink flamingos and flowers - the centers of the flowers happen to be bottle caps, too!
These birds and flowers were cut from vinyl records.
Inside these juice bottle caps were individual miniature paintings. This was my favorite installation of the whole exhibit. I love miniature artwork, and each of these contained a beautiful painting.
Another part of the art opening was the Trashion Fashion Show. It was a great mix of materials made into wearable and not-so-wearable fashions. Just like Project Runway!
Happy Earth Day!
