About

I am an illustrator and designer with a passion for rats and other animals

I am on a mission to steadily design and make more cute rat things — the world doesn't have enough! Brux and Boggle is the name of a zine series, and also my line of rat-themed goods.

Besides rats, I'm currently working on a year-long project for the Year of the Dog, which began on the lunar new year. Each new moon, I will (hopefully) be releasing a new print based on the history of one dog breed. Breeds are inspired by real-life dogs I know. There will be a total of 12 new prints!

Frequently asked questions
Do you do commissions or custom orders?

I have been commissioned to make custom orders and would love to make more. Please message me. :)

What if my order is a gift?

If your order is a gift, please mark it as a gift. The receipt will not include the price.

Can you ship my order to a different address than the one I used in checkout?

99% of the time, yes, because you decided you'd rather receive your order at work or you've forgotten to update your address since you moved. I have shipped to a different address for those scenarios no problem.

If you fall into the rare 1% in which you're asking if I can ship your order to Australia when your address is in the U.S., then the answer is no — because shipping costs are based on your address on file.

Custom and personalized orders

There is a manual process to everything I make. I cut fabric by hand and oversee each stitch sewn with a machine. Relief prints are made from hand-carved blocks, custom-mixed colors, and then are individually pulled by hand. This manual process includes zines — they all have something "done" to them, whether it's a cutout, paint treatment or a special fold.

You can expect minute differences across each item you buy. The one you own will be unique.

Why rats?

Rats are intelligent, affectionate and complex animals. But the world seems to only show them as vermin or sewer creatures. You see rats as Halloween decorations or biker club logos.

I couldn't find very much showing rats as cute or affectionate, and none at all showing what it's like to have rats as pets (loving the unloved, etc.) Whatever I could find was not very well designed.

So I've been creating things that show rats in a different, more accurate light. I am designing and making more cute rat things because the world doesn't have enough.
