I think Grandma and Grandpa called each other turkey to keep from swearing in front of us when we were kids. It's all out of love though.
I drew a watercolor for EVERY DAY of 2018, and here’s the last one from December 31st.
I can’t believe this project actually made it through a whole year. I think I’m better at drawing people? I can’t believe I have a whole year in comics, I can’t wait to look back on them in a few years and realize how silly I was. You can check out ALL of these comics on my patreon, where I’ll also be posting about upcoming projects in 2019!
I'm teaching two classes at the Berkeley North Branch Library this month, one on character design and one on emanata! If you have/know any kids, bring 'em by and we can nerd out about comics!
I got to teach a class at the Rock Alum Branch Library this past Sunday and it was the bees knees!
The class was on character design, and we covered a BUNCH of stuff: visual development, silhouettes, back story, character alignment, and lots more. The kids were absolutely amazing and came up with some great stuff. My favorite was either a snake that was in the mafia or a dog sorcerer whose name was Fat Dog.
The event was sponsored by Sakura, and they gave me the coolest goody bag full of all sorts of free swag! I was totally blown away, and I can't wait to try all this new stuff, especially the gel pens (don't judge).
RELEASE DAY! My Olympic comic is FINALLY FINISHED.
It’s not THAT cold: A Midwesterner’s Tale of the 2018 Winter Olympics is a 32 page, full color comic about my trip to Pyeonchang with my partner’s family this past February.
I’m really proud of this sucker, and I’m hoping to expand it into an even BIGGER travelogue somewhere farther down the line.
Grab yourself a copy over at http://www.meggieramm.com/shop/, and I hope you have a wicked and wonderful Wednesday.
Turns out a Steam Train Engine is an actual TRAIN, as his mother was kind enough to clear up for me.
I got to spend Free Comic Book Day at the Berkeley Library North Branch with Thien Pham, and it was the BEST. I never just sit down to draw superheroes and ender dragons, and I loved meeting so many kids who were so invested in comics.
Also, I will draw toothless the dragon for tiny children until my hands fall off.
I got to emcee my first panel this month for Bay Area Book Fest, and it was such a dream come true.
I was really lucky in that it was with people I know and admire, AND I got a chance to wear my dinosaur comic dress to a comic event! If you haven’t seen their stuff yet, you should check out Nidhi Chanani, Trinidad Escobar, Thi Bui, and Amber Padilla. They are forces to be reckoned with.
Here are some of my daily diary comics from the event! You can see more of these by checking out my patreon!
