Greek Diary was shortlisted for the Slate Cartoonists Studio Prize and also won a silver medal at the Society of Illustrators MoCCAfest in New York this April.  

I'm an archaeological illustrator and cartoonist.  This project is to expand upon the diary comics I kept while in Greece.  I will serialize the progress every week on Monday.

Last June and July, I went to Greece to work on a dig, my 9th season at the site of Kenchreai on the Corinthian Gulf.  For 5 weeks I drew every day, both diary comics and landscapes--3 notebooks full.  Part of the Diary is about work on the dig and part is about the trip afterwards to Rhodes, Santorini, and Paros I took with my family--my husband John, Classics professor, musician, scholar of ancient music, and our two kids, ages 9 and 11.  My goal now is to make this diary into a book by adding context to the daily trials:  memories from my first and many subsequent trips to Greece over nearly 20 years and especially the beginning of the romance with John on Santorini 13 years ago.  

I'll also occasionally post comics about my current family life--you can see many examples of these on MuthaMagazine.com.  One of these posts, Just Doing My Job, was nominated for an Ignatz Award at SPX in 2016.
