dear America, you made me into a loudmouthed brat who takes internet trolls too seriously, but I’m very grateful that you did
sometimes my mom looks at me and goes “you were such a nice little kid what happened”
AMURRICA HAPPENED with all the good things like Polly Pockets and all the bad things like racist elementary school kids who pulled up their eyes at me
but yes when I was three I charmed the immigration officials in China who were about to arbitrarily not give me a visa but upon me telling them the story that I was going to go see my dad and he would take me to see the alligators, the alligators who were the parents of my stuffed alligator, they gave me one.
and so America you are stuck with me, no matter how many times throughout grade school I was told “go back where you came from”
I JUST WANTED TO SEE SOME ALLIGATORS OKAY

I was complaining to friends about some asshole in the street who had yelled “KONNICHIWA” after me and one goes, “I hope he gets crushed by a ton of sushi”
hello New York friends!
just a reminder that the panel I’m going to be speaking on with Juliet of Fascinasians and GB Tran, author of Vietnamerica, “Drawing the Asian American”, is THIS FRIDAY, APRIL 12th, at NYU’s Kimmel Center!
There will be lots of tasty food and raffle prizes!
I will have 4x6 postcard-sized prints of the comics, Mr. Brontosaurus, and Katara and Korra waterbending for sale. I also have 8x10 glossies of the bunnies as well as a Mr. Brontosaurus plush, handmade by me, up as a raffle prize.
so please RSVP to the fb event, spread the word, and I hope to see you all there and meet some of you! we’ll have an awesome time (:
Don’t argue with Asian moms
On March 23, we’re organizing “BEYOND THE BAD AND THE UGLY” — the first-ever Asian American summit on stereotypes, at Los Angeles’s Japanese American National Museum. We’ll be bringing together an amazing group of Asian American artists, academics, advocates and critics for a candid discussion of negative and distorted images of Asians in U.S. popular culture — and how to address, erase or subvert them.
The event is going to be awesome, maybe even historic, so we’d love to have as many people see it and participate as possible — but not everyone can be in Los Angeles on March 23.
That’s why we’ve launched this campaign to underwrite the cost of hiring videographers to shoot, edit and upload all of the sessions at “Beyond the Bad and the Ugly” to the Internet for free viewing by anyone, forever.
$7500 isn’t a lot of money (well, it kinda is), but “Beyond the Bad and the Ugly“‘s organizers, Wall Street Journal Online columnist Jeff Yang and his fellow editors of the groundbreaking Asian American comics anthology SHATTERED, have put the summit together out of their own pockets. Your support of this Kickstarter at any level will make it possible for this amazing event to live on long after it’s over. And who knows? It might inspire us to put on another one…next year.

also small PSA: if you reblog, please don’t remove artist comments.
Want a free copy of #SHATTERED? Help us get to 2,000 likes on Facebook and 1,000 follows on twitter by Monday the 15th and a random fan gets this.
I’ve been sitting on this news since July because I couldn’t quite believe I was going to be a part of this but I saw the book in person last night which made everything a reality
I’M PUBLISHED and I feel so honored to be a part of this!!!!!
Shattered is my first official printed work & you should all follow and support this for all of the amazing people involved, including my good friend Alice Li who did the art for one of the stories. my comic is the two-page acknowledgment for the Vilcek Foundation, the fine philanthropist folks who donated to make publication possible.
so please check it out either at MOCA, NYCC this weekend, or buy it on Amazon, & make sure to follow the crew on both FB and Twitter!
is it just an immigrant mom thing?
my dad says I walk like a duck ):
the joys of having no arch.
happy Easter to all who celebrate it!
