Who are Hope & Harry?


Hope and Harry is a semi-autobiographical comic about my family. Hope is a lot like me, except probably better, kinder, and more patient. Harry is a lot like my husband, except not quite as funny or good looking. Hope and Harry have two daughters and a cat just like my husband and I do, and many of the things that happen to them are based loosely on things that actually happen to our kids, their friends, our family friends or more often than I would like to admit, just made up by our family over dinner.

Hope and Harry is a comic that really celebrates the lives of families and the funny and strange things that happen to them. It’s all about busy schedules, unpredictable pets, unexpected catastrophes and the world of children’s imagination. I hope you will stop by for a coffee and a cookie and be ready to listen to Claire and Piper tell you all about their latest adventure.


Hey, we all deal with that negative voice sometimes.  At least I hope I'm not the only one, otherwise that voice is right about me!  

Sometimes I do lack confidence, despite working really hard and getting lots of affirmation from my friends and coworkers. It's something that we talk about at work all the time.  To counteract one negative experience you need twelve positive ones. That's a lot of weight on the negative!  So don't forget to give your creative friends (all your friends really) some positive feedback.  they might have a hard time accepting it, but it will mean a lot anyway.

Speaking of positive feedback - If you like the comic and/or want to support my creative efforts why not hop over to my Patreon and get the inside scoop on my creative process, get Patreon exclusive art and advance viewing of the comic?  

Finally  - It's Comic Expo Cameo Time!  Thanks Odessa, Frank and April Mae for letting me draw you badly.  I am rewarding you by drawing you badly again!
