Hi, I'm hej! I may or may not literally be a hedge, but I'll let you decide.
I have a lot of love for music and my city, and I'm sure both are obvious in my characters. I'm also a sports fan: I love baseball (New York Mets), ice hockey (New York Islanders), and professional wrestling, and sometimes I draw sports cartoons. I'm also a hobbyist photographer.
Almost all of my characters were created by me, and you might also notice that some of them are very old. It's no mistake: I've had many of these characters all my life. Some even date to when I was a baby-- though they may have undergone a lot of changes since then! They're all my beloved kids, and I always find new ways to tell their stories.
Most of my characters here are from my comic-in-progress, Catband, a queer anarcho-punk tale of a battle of the bands TV show, and all the young people making bad decisions therein. The first version ran as a webcomic from 2007-2009, and I'm currently planning a reboot, so most of what I'm doing on Toyhouse right now is updating and redesigning the characters, and writing short stories from that world.
It's basically my life's work: I took a few years off from it, but I could never stay away. Catband is the story of my heart, and in the end, I knew that this is the story I need to tell. I'm excited to give these guys' stories the justice they deserve-- and I can't wait to share it with you.
I don't buy/sell/trade characters and I'm not open to roleplay.

...which I woefully neglected in 2020 and am trying to make up for with a vengeance in 2021.
Anyway, I just posted the art improvement meme with 20 years' worth of Catband art, including a bunch of Catband 2007 comic panel art, which literally has been seen by no one but me and Brie in close to a decade, so if that's of interest to anybody here, it's $1+/month to hear me ramble at length about my kids and share stuff like this that I don't put anywhere else at all.
