today my wai-po, my grandma, passed away. she was an incredible woman who passed onto me her stubbornness and her love of cats. she woke up at 5 am every morning to do martial arts and swordfighting. she had a lovely, raspy laugh that came easily, especially when her cat did something funny. she was also clever to her last breath.
it seems like only a second ago my mom was telling me this story about the time, a few months ago, when my grandmother swindled a swindler. I wanted to pay homage to her instead of being too too sad, because she had a great sense of humor. I remember saying to my mom after she told me the story that it would make a great comic, and I finally drew it. my only regret is that I didn’t draw it sooner.
wai-po, you were a total badass and a world-class troll. I hope to see you again someday.
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”
it’s okay Lydia, we’ve all been there.
this is based off a silly story my co-worker told me: she lived in an old row house during college, and there was a ghost there who liked to record “Criminal Minds” and “Chopped”. no matter how many times they deleted the recordings, they always returned. my coworker also canceled their service, but it continued. finally, she phoned the cable company, which confirmed her cancellation, and she and her housemates decided to leave the poltergeist alone and let it watch its shows.
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 (:
Hi guys! The facebook invite for the event I’m speaking at next Friday is finally up, so make sure to RSVP:
AAWA along with CEAMS would like to announce their April Event: Drawing the Asian American!
Asian American artists and writers have risen to prominence as creators of sophisticated graphic novels, many of which explore cultural identity and social issues. In this panel, we will explore activism through illustration and the current industry environment with our special guest speakers G.B. Tran (“Vietamerica”) and Wendy Xu (“Angry Girl Comics”).
With our event, there will also be free food, refreshments, raffle prizes and the opportunity to purchase autographed merchandise will be available, so be sure to come check it out!
I hope to see you all there!
Also, how very appropriate that Juliet and I would be doing an event together on our friendversary! we met one year ago at NYCAASC!
Lydia can never catch a break
Don’t argue with Asian moms
