Everyone needs a little break from the news these days. I drew these comics after seeing so many anxiety-provoking articles and wanted to stay sane by drawing out something lighthearted from them. I've got two young kids (5 and 3 months!) and I am sheltering in place in California.

Every day I’m so busy and don’t have much downtime, but I have gotten such positive reception to my comics that it keeps me going. People have told me that they are "a relief" and a "balm in this tense time." I feel like everyone is trying to help out, and this is just my little way of contributing―to provide a laugh that can bring people together.

During the day, in the various five-minute increments I have, I'll try to think of the idea, and then in the evening, I will try to draw it up. The days are draining and a bit repetitive, so challenging myself to keep a positive attitude and find something funny with a comic is my outlet. Some people drink wine or watch TV, and I like to draw. I hope people around the world enjoy the bit of humor I'm trying to bring to our shared situation.

Thanks! You can follow me on Instagram and Facebook for more.

the reason everyone is stocking uo on toilet paper is because there are two types of toilet paper, and residential toilet papereveryone is staying at home and not going to their jobs. workplaces and schools and stuff use commercial toilet paper which is like 1 ply, residential toilet paper is for homes and that's 2ply. since everyone is staying at home not many people are buying commercial, and everyone is buying residential, because the people staying at home have tripled since quarantine started!
