She’s been a self-employed freelance cartoonist and illustrator since March 2005, and doesn’t plan on wearing a nametag/khakis/uniform ever again. She also wrote & drew The New Adventures of Bat Boy for the Weekly World News after Peter Bagge, until the mag went tits-up.

She has two cats, a fish, and a Girl Scout troop.
