Sticky Comics by Christiann MacAuley
Sticky Comics is my (mostly) humorous bunch of random drawings, scrawlings, and comics. (If you Google “sticky comics”, you will find there’s an erotic comic series called “Sticky”, but unfortunately, that’s not my work.)…Cartooning makes me laugh, which is one of my favorite things to do ever.
(This one’s for you, Mom)
Connie to the Wonnie, by Connie Sun
WELCOME! This blog is a personal project I started in August 2011 with the goal of drawing and posting an illustrated status message a day - I haven’t stopped since. Every weekday morning, I get up, draw a cartoon, and post whatever I can manage to get done before going to work. I began cartooning daily to let go of perfection and figure out if I had anything to say. What I’ve learned in the process is that we all do. What’s your status message today?

JOE! by Michelle Billingsley

Joe along with his family and friends, welcomes you to his world, in the hope of inspiring yours.
Under the Apple Tree by Sarah Winifred Searle
Rosie is forlorn when she and her mother leave the suburbs of Boston for Maine, uprooting her social life and disrupting her last year of high school. Understandably, she believes it is the end of the world and she is doomed to waste away in the boondocks.
But, unfortunately for her, small town life isn’t nearly as dull as she feared.
Rosie finds herself facing a fate forced upon her by events long past: she must discover the truth behind tragic events buried in the history of her new home and bring a man’s spirit to rest. She digs into the past to uncover secrets about her town, all the while handling the trials and tribulations of being an idealistic young woman growing up in an era of great change.
It is October of 1943. World War II looms darkly over the nation’s head, and like many families, Rosie and her mother are left to fend for themselves while her father and brother are away in the military. Rosie is making plans to attend nursing school after graduation, determined to pull her own weight, and even in the little town of Kennebunk, the enemy isn’t as far away as one might think.
