      About

      It's time to finally edit this page to reflect my reality. I've been "doodling" "drawing" "cartooning" "postering" "zine-making" since 2015. I am professionally an architectural designer, and with that comes much privilege with time and money- and its definitely informed my art and comic making. Outside of my activism, independent scholarship and shit posting, I use my expertise in an accessible and critical way to look at power, oppression, and joy in the built environment.

      So what do I like to draw? I draw slice of life comics with a pinch of magical realism, optimist nihilism, and a desire for justice. I draw on the Mexican-American experience as a second-generation American, on gender and racial identity, and on inequalities reflected in our real, imagined, and urban structures. I draw about tiny living, on N/YIMBY-ism, urban ecology, environmental justice and spatial justice in the U.S.

      I have my Patreon set where you pay Per Project. My intent is that each project is distributable, physical, accessible. I don't cash in on doodles for example, but will cash in on posters, zines, comic books, stickers, pamphlets, patches and the like.

      You can donate however much you want! Whatever I make, it will be available as a free pdf to all my patreons. However, if you pitch in $5, I will send you that very item!

      Thanks. You can find me mostly on twitter but also on instagram at @nullthread.

      Goals
      $125 - reached! per zine, comic book, game or design!
      AKA acquiring the tools of the trade beyond the bear minimum. This includes objects and obsessions such as a drawing tablet, studio space, craft paper, conventions and comic festivals farther away from Seattle, and even art classes. I would professionally produce my comics and go beyond zinester copy stores.Thank you for offsetting the costs!
