Endearingly deranged stories. Illustrated by women and queers.
Short Shorts is a project my girlfriend and I conceived at the El Tovar Hotel just steps from the Grand Canyon. We were on a beautiful, romantic vacation and I was feeling angsty with a dash of self-loathing for not creating more things. In talking about it, we came up with this: short, short stories designed for Instagram. The plan was that I would write all the stories and illustrators would give life to the first sentences by creating tiny covers. Launched in 2020, it's been an incredible vehicle for collaborating with fellow ladies and queers. And having a creative outlet helps me be less of a crank, so that's nice, too.
