As a songwriter and guitarist, she fronted the pop-punk group The Homewreckers for eight years, and currently fronts her new band, Choked Up.

Doodle Fights is back!


Kick off the 2019 Denver Zine Fest with Doodle Fights!

Saturday, June 22 at 8pm
Ratio Beerworks: 2920 Larimer St, Denver, CO 80205

Explosive things can happen when Denver’s talented cartoonists community gets together to jam, and now you can take a ringside seat and get a taste of the zany action at Doodle Fights: A friendly elimination competition and comics reading showcasing a crew of local artists. And if you go, you’ll be more than an innocent bystander: “Doodle fighters” will take subject cues from audience members and work madly behind the scenes while their cohorts read comic excerpts on stage, and winners will be determined by a vote from the crowd. Imagine a mash-up of poetry readings and WWE for the nerdset. There's a high possibility of inadvertent adult material.

Some of the best indie cartoonists will be reading their comics, as well as an assortment of artists battling against each other on the easels armed only with sharpies! It's a free event!
