TFM Comic: Spunky the Lover!

Today’s comic is up and features everyone’s favorite pup: Spunky! You might recognize this cute pup because he’s the mascot of I Love Rescue Animals. He was named after the dog in the Nickelodeon show “Rocko’s Modern Life” and he lives up to his name. He’s also the lover of our family and the animal that gets along with every single other brother or sister. Nobody hates him, everyone loves being near him. He’s our lover pup.

Check out more comics at The Family Menagerie and enjoy!

TFM Comic: Fluff-Bucket!

Ah, today’s comic is a flashback to when Snarf, our rambunctious Briard mix that we found on the side of the road a year ago, was younger. He liked to chew. A lot. And often times he chewed on things he should haven’t been chewing on. We got rid of that habit fairly quickly, thank goodness.

Anyway, check out today’s comic over at The Family Menagerie. Be careful, there’s lots of fluff.

TFM Comic: Rescue Rattery!

Today is the day! The Family Menagerie is back in action! We’ve got your newest comic up and coming this Friday over at I Love Rescue Animals, we’ll be giving you a behind the scenes look at the story that actually happened. Fun times, and it feels good to be back in the comic world again. Enjoy!

Webcomic Wednesday on Thursday?

Yesterday was a hard day for me, so today you’ll get your Webcomic Wednesday a day late. And instead of some comics, I’m giving you a sneak peak of what I’ve been diligently working on for the past few days.

The Family Menagerie is slowly but surely coming back to life. This one will be up soon and I’ve already got another one inked and ready to be colored. Exciting, yes? I love webcomics and I’m glad to finally be working on my own again. Keep your eyes peeled for more TFM and Webcomic Wednesday!

June: A Month of Art

This month I have set a personal challenge. Draw, sketch, doodle at least once a day. Doesn’t matter what it is, doesn’t matter how I do it or who sees it, I am going to create something every single day this month.


This month is also the new NanoMango, and I will be attempting to sketch, ink, and color, ten full-pages of comics for The Family Menagerie. The comic has been dead for too long and I shall revive it! So as you can see, this month will hopefully be one full of art. I have a few things I need to catch up on as well, so this is a good excuse to chain myself to my drawing table and go for it. Wish me luck!

The Family Menagerie on Hiatus


Hey all. I’ve been extremely busy lately due to my day job, my freelancing gigs, and volunteer work with animals, and because of that, The Family Menagerie has been put on the back burner for awhile. I’m hoping that by mid-April, I’ll have time to pick it up again. I’m still doing small illustrations that I need to start putting up, but the comic itself is going on vacation for awhile. No worries, this isn’t the last you’ve seen of it!

The Family Menagerie Updated!

The Family Menagerie: Animals and comics at their best!

It’s Monday and we all know what that means! The Family Menagerie has been updated with some of your favorite characters. Today’s topic? Training (or something like that).

It’s Webcomic Wednesday!

I love webcomics. I love them so much, I make them. I’ve been a fan and follower of several webcomics for the past 8 years, and I’ve been clipping comics out of newspapers even longer than that (pretty sure I still have quite a few clippings from when I was little girl). There’s just nothing quite so relaxing as sitting down in your favorite reading chair and spending hours going through the funnies. Nowadays, the Sunday comics are online, and they’re everyday. Here are a few of my favorites at the moment.

The Family Menagerie Update

The Family Menagerie Cat Comic

There’s a new comic up over at The Family Menagerie. TFM is updated every Monday (regardless of when it’s actually done, I might add), so be sure to check out all the crazy antics that two girls and twenty-two pets come up with. Good times for all.

And who doesn’t love puppies and kittens?

P.S. Don’t forget about the current Poster Giveaway!

Introducing The Family Menagerie!

My fine and fair Ladies and Gentlemen, I have been working endlessly (okay, not quite so endlessly since this week was mostly taken up with SLEEP and SICKNESS) to bring to the web a brand new web comic of unrivaled epic proportions. Day and night for the past months, this thing has been in my head. Ash and I have been working on it for well over year, and it is finally, FINALLY, up for the world to see.

I give you … *drumroll* …

The Family Menagerie

We have about 20-something comics already sketched out and ready to go, so it’s going to be updated every Monday from here on out. More pages/downloads/goodies will be added as we continue on this little adventure. Eventually the comic will expand to events in our lives not related to animals, but for now, that’s the focus. And trust me, that gives us enough content for life.

Check it out, give us a shout, and tell us what you think. And keep checking back for more comics and more updates. Welcome to The Family Menagerie!
