Who I Worked with in 2011 (And who you should hire in 2012)

It's been a challenging year for everyone. But you know what they say, a challenge is just an achievement yet to be overcome. Wait, is that a thing people say? Well, they should. In 2011, I've had the great pleasure of working with some of the brightest female talent around.

Tara Street was my chief and mentor for the past seven years.
Kathleen Shannon is my friend and professional inspiration.
(Together, Tara and Kathleen are Braid Creative.)
Liz Radtke's art pretty much defines Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple.
Lillian Cohen-Moore edited both Dos.
Tracy Hurley wrote the foreword for Do: The Book of Letters.
Kristin Rakochy generously licensed sketches to Do: Pilgrims of the Flying Temple.
Mori McLamb drew perfect portraits for Belle of the Ball.
Rin Aiello, whose art for Happy Birthday, Robot! got lots of praise this year.
Amy Houser illustrated most of Do: The Book of Letters.
J.R. Blackwell published her first game (and hired me to design the book).
Lyndsay Peters made custom dice bags for Do's Kickstarter.
Kari Fry draws t-shirts I buy. You should buy, too.
Mur Lafferty hired me in 2010, but she should be in all lists anyway. All lists!

Hire them in 2012. A lot.
