Oh, were we supposed to write posts? I didn’t know that.

Okay! I’m Dana. Pronouns she/her. I write and draw the syndicated comic strip/bestselling book series β€œPhoebe and Her Unicorn.” Before that, I used to do a reasonably popular webcomic called β€œOzy and Millie.”

Ex-Disney animators find new home and get film running again after it was undermined and canned by queerphobic Disney execs.

So a couple years ago I drew a poster for Every Child A Reader’s β€œGet Caught Reading” campaign.
I understand mine is second in popularity behind β€œbaby Yoda.”
So they asked me to do another one recently. I drew them this.

Ozy and Millie: the college years. Various stuff from the past year or so.

Millie was shown playing something like four different instruments in the strip; I like to imagine college Millie is an experimental musician.

The gender of the day is a calming ogre on a unicorn.

Let's see where this leads- oh no...

Gotta say I’m enjoying this platform so far. It reminds me of the bird app when I was first on it, when it was kind of just fun and informal. Before it was an obligation and a chore and a constant source of stress.
I suppose that can’t last. But for now…

Neighborhood lady and her tricycle-riding kid just told us β€œwe’re so glad Christmas Dragon is back, it’s the highlight of the holiday season!”
