SPX is coming! →

andreatsurumi:

Molly Brooks and I are debuting our first science-fiction-plucky-teen-girl-detectives series at SPX 2014 and will be really, really eager to talk about space. And aliens. And buddy cop shows. Seriously, it’s all we’ve been thinking about for ages.

It’s back-to-back space mystery…

Mikky Ekko at Joe’s Pub—drawings by mollybrooks

We love Molly’s drawings and were delighted when she asked to come in and draw during Mikky Ekko’s recent Joe’s Pub set. Drawings offer a unique perspective on the live event and Molly has both a great eye and wonderful style.

If you want to come in and draw a musician or band’s set, give us a shout and we’ll try to set it up.

i drew the nashville scene&#8217;s 5th annual bingo card for the bonnaroo music festival! it was super fun! people who attend the festival can play along by finding the things on the card IRL, then instagramming/tweeting photo proof to the scene&#8217;s social media.

Had some fun with watercolor the other day. It’s been a little while since I’ve messed around with it like this, but I really want to do more. There’s something about putting down a field of color that changes the way you draw space.
