I'm working with Kirsten Cappy at Curious City book marketing on a Magic Repair Shop website. She  has been working with illustrators from Maine College of Art to create character and product illustrations.

"A good hunter keeps herself chaste," Z adds.
"A good hunter will explode from lack of contact with the opposite sex," Sascha deadpans.

Margo shakes her head in disgust. "A good hunter will cut the crap and do what she's suppose to do.”
Amanda Marrone, Revealers

“Hey, what are we going to get Margo for her birthday?" I ask.
"I know what to get her."
Dani looks around, and then whispers in my ear. "A spell to remove the stick from her ass.”
Amanda Marrone, Revealers

“Like lets hear some big freaking initiation details! How'd it go?" Z asks. "Are you feeling more womanly? Or more witchy?"
"Well, Sascha would probably say I'm feeling more bitchy than usual, but..." Margo pauses, as all of our eyes go wide.

I think we're amazed Margo is a little more self-aware than we might give her credit for.”
Amanda Marrone, Revealers
