Artist Lyra Hill
Lyra Hill’s business cards are better than yours (well, mine anyways). Hers are handmade, and they hold toothpicks and matches! I love the images, the dimensions, everything about ’em. She also wins the award for best blog title “It’s Always Winter In Space”. Go look at her comics, and watch the videos of her reading and explaining them.
