My first official installment of GRRRL’S GUIDE, a monthly feminist events roundup, is up at THE LE SIGH! I was invited to make it a regular thing after last month’s East Coast Guide to International Women’s Day. I’m doing the accompanying illustrations, too!
April features some really great tours, movies, books and zines I’m excited about.

It was such a pleasure getting to work with the Pellys for Jenn's SOUND NOISE event on Sunday. Liz and I curated a table of feminist zines, and MoMA PS1 even Instagrammed it. More photos + a recap later. Thank you Jenn & Liz!

Two of my dear friends are getting married and they asked me to design a Save the Date card for the occasion. I’m super happy with the final product.
The flower bunch is made of peonies and hydrangea and was drawn/painted with watercolor pencil and Neocolor II; the type was drawn with Micron pens.

This month’s mantra courtesy of Mme. Clairevoyant: Do what you can to keep moving anyway.
The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Virgo: As you plan the days ahead, as you dream about the summer, as you imagine next year, and the one after that, the future will loom large, so near, so bright you can hardly see it. This week might overwhelm you with possibilities, with visions, with the different paths all stretching out before you, each one sweet and each one wild. It might get to be too much, it might make you want to scream, it might make you too scared to move. Just keep your eyes open. Listen to loud songs. Do what you can to keep moving anyway.
Today’s image was made specially for Madame Clairevoyant by Jen May.

I’ve become fascinated with this photograph. Here’s what’s going on, via Robert Murch (the world’s foremost collector, historian, and expert on Ouija® and Talking Boards).
What do Ouija boards & Veterans Day have in common?
July 20, 1920: “The Official Ouija Board of the U.S. Marines Corps at Boston, MA”
This oracle predicted the following - Babe Ruth would knock 60 home runs out of the park, Governor Cox would be elected president, and women would vote by 1921…
