When I was 10 and my youngest brother was learning how to read, I used to draw comics for him starring his favorite stuffed animal as a superhero so that he'd be motivated to read the stories.

Then it was Bob Comics, starring a thumbprint with a face drawn on it named Bob. (I got a lot of blue ink on things during this phase.) Next was Kelsie-Callie comics, starring a fictional version of myself and my best friend, which eventually became popular among our classmates during 7th and 8th grade. When Callie moved away, it became a series of one-off comics for my best friend in high school, which I would draw in her daily planner.

I drew The Madman's Scribbles, my first digital comic, for my husband's website Life is Story, which ran for a few years and was my longest-running cartoon, but even then, it was never something all my own. I took a break from drawing comics and illustrated a couple of children's books that I never knew what to do with.

Now I'm drawing my own biweekly webcomic, Tales of Olds. I'm also illustrating children's stories more regularly: I'm working on a series of Bible story adaptations for young children, as well as stories about topics related to diversity and adoption that I want to put out into the world. 

These topics are important to me because this is everything about Josh and I's journey right now: adopting babies, fighting for justice, loving God, living delightfully. But being able to share all of this in a tangible way, instead of hiding it in my own computer files and never doing anything with it, is a new leg of the journey for me...and I'm so excited to see where it can go!
