Okay, Class!
Due to some restructuring of the Oakmoat School District, Rita has only six students in her new class;
​​​​​​​for them, blending into the background to get through high school isn't an option.

This slice-of-life drama, drawn traditionally and colored digitally, explores community and the human experience,
how it looks different and similar for each individual, and how our experiences clash and come together as we do.

Remembrance at the Pond
Amphibians and reptiles do not get along in South Mill.
Ignorance and prejudice characterize the town and its politics,
and serve as the backdrop of a local tragedy.
Even without the complications of biological classification,
Malcolm the turtle and Lance the frog have little in common,
aside from their mutual friend Diego the newt, who recently passed away.
Together, the odd pair cope with losing him while driving each other crazy
and discovering what it means to have someone's back.

For the Eye
"How are you?" That question isn't always answered honestly, but what would you do if your eye drops allowed you to see others as they truly are? :oD

Meanwhile, a young boy named Griffin, the son of a local fisherman, struggles to speak his mind until he decides to offer the town a confrontation service. But his social journey soon turns into an environmental controversy.
