My father and I don't live in the same city anymore, but that doesn't mean I couldn't give him a phone call and honor him on Facebook. I didn't write much about him on Facebook, but I did post a few lines with this lion cartoon.
I drew these lions in college, back when I regularly made my "Forget Fairytales" comics and even won a grant to produce two print issues of Comicality Magazine. I was only reminded of the drawing because it turns out that I have a laminated copy of it. My husband and I found it while we were unpacking for our new apartment, only days before Father's Day. It's funny how those little moments will make themselves known sometimes.
By day, I am Christine Stoddard, a New York-based magazine writer. By night I am the founding editor of the bewitching Quail Bell Magazine and a Brooklyn bohème who adores art, magic, and revolution. Really, those two personas are not all that different—at least if you're paying attention. This is where I dream, dabble, and muse. From time to time, you'll find me promoting the fairy punk lifestyle, too. And why not? It's addictive. Learn more about me.
