Pinned post

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.”

I really cannot look at this book cover without imagining Cookie Monster wearing weird sunglasses

Just had occasion to revisit this photo.
Myself and Peter S. Beagle, at the Cinerama in Seattle, November 2013.

Today's gender is an exhausted, ominous dragon.

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

Colour me glad, but unsurprised it got this treatment there.


Why do animated cartoonists use animals?

β€œFor the same reason that Aesop, La Fontaine, Kipling, Beatrix Potter, and Kenneth Grahame did: it is easier and more believable to humanize animals than it is to humanize humans.”

-Chuck Jones


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.

I'm a grumpy queer dragon lady and this is my quiet cave for me and some friends.
