I am not currently taking commissions and requests! You're more than welcome to ask, but I can almost guarantee what the answer is going to be. :)

Grew up in LA, went to school in Rhode Island, and ended up in Seattle where she now lives with her two snakes, Xocoyotzin and Rodney. She worked as a concept artist at Xbox for a solid six years, and now spends her days as an interactive production designer at HBO. She designed the Lutece twins and a whole lot of historical Disney princesses.

Ru Paul's Drag Con, table DAA 21

So excited to be exhibiting at Ru Paul’s Drag Con later this week!  I don’t think I’ve worked this hard to make a lot of work exclusively for a convention, so expect a lot of new prints and postcards, as well as stickers for our top four queens. 😍

See you guys at table DAA 21, right across from Milk! Purse first, and COME THROOOUGH

Emerald City Comicon BOOTH #1006 by shoomlah
Emerald City Comicon BOOTH #1006

Hoo boy, right on the tail end of Wondercon and it’s already time for Emerald City Comicon up here in Seattle!  I’ll be sharing Booth #1006 in the south hall with the lovely Justinoaksford​, so please feel free to swing by and say hi!  He’ll have new comics, I’ll have my new sketchbook - we aim to please. :)

I’m also doing a panel this year with Aidanrae​ and @hummeline​ called Remixes, Mashups, and Reimaginings: Transformative Creativity in Pop Culture:

Artists have been remixing and reworking the media they consume since there was media to consume – but, like good fusion cuisine, there's an art to doing it well. How do you combine or reimagine properties in a way that transcends and elevates the source material? From blogging to character design to cosplay, join panelists Claire Hummel (Bioshock Infinite, Fable Legends), Aidan Vitti (Quarry, Twin Peaks), and Emily Hummel (Arrested Westeros) to talk about the do's and don't's of remix culture. 

Sunday | 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM | Room T305

Pretty sure it is going to be a BLAST.  See you guys in a couple days,

Just a little change by shoomlah
Just a little change

And a bit alarming by shoomlah

So it’s been five years to the day since I started my historical (or, well, historical-ish) Disney princesses series.  I have no idea how it’s been this long – I feel like I drew some of these yesterday – but it seemed as good an opportunity as any to revisit Belle now that I’m five years older and wiser.  And now that I’m way more into the 1780’s/90’s.

I drew that original Belle on a whim, fueled by my sister’s time working as a costumed interpreter at Colonial Williamsburg, and assuming it would be a one-off piece.  In the long run, despite all their now egregious flaws, I owe this series for some pretty cool jobs, meeting a ton of cool people, developing an unexpectedly voracious appetite for historical fashion, and eating a fair amount of humble pie along the way.

I think this Belle probably marks the swan song of my historical Disney princess series.  Much as I’d love to continue doing it forever, I’ve got a lot of exciting personal projects that I’m ready to dedicate more of my precious free time to. I’ll probably continue designing this stuff in my off hours – who am I to resist drawing the likes of Slue Foot Sue and Katrina Von Tassel – but I’m going to focus less on polished illustrations, and more on the research and design.  When you get right down to it, that’s the aspect of this stuff that I love. :)

Thanks to everyone who stuck with me over the past five years, and here’s to way more historical fashion in the years to come  I can’t even put into words how lovely y’all’ve been. 

Just a little change. Small, to say the least.


Patrik the Vampire - Kickstarter! by shoomlah
Patrik the Vampire - Kickstarter!

My buddy Bree is running a Kickstarter for her amazingly charming webcomic, Patrik the Vampire, and I had the chance to contribute a print as one of the backer rewards!  I can’t even say how much fun it is to draw Patrik, and I jumped at the opportunity to get some 1790′s fashion and guillotines up in the mix. >:]

You can read the webcomic HERE, and back the campaign HERE!

I love how your art has that retro yet modern look and feel to it. I hope I can one day incorporate a touch of art deco into my designs as well as you have =D

I love your redesigned Disney Princesses series. Saw them on a post from George Takei on FB and it lead me to your DA page.
