Steph is a 2011 graduate of Gettysburg College (majored in history, minored in Civil War Era studies) and current graduate student at Pratt Institute (library science with a focus in Archival Studies) who loves baseball, sports anime, writing, drawing, Rogue Squadron, cars (and Top Gear), comedy (especially its history, the British variety, and cosplaying one comedian in particular) and her cats and Old English Sheepdogs. Fond of Stanford even though she doesn't go there. Has Asperger's syndrome, a form of autism. Created the 30-Day Baseball Meme. One time she made a music video about Buster Keaton's love affair with trains. Since she's an archivist-in-training, she often preserves things on her own. See her scans here. This is the most quality tag on her blog.

Author of the webcomic The Historians, the excuse to draw dead comedians called Comedian Heaven, and Londinium, a novel in the making set in 1863 London. Scriptwriter for the webcomic Home By Now, a story about time travel, music, history and general hijinks (meet the incredible artist here!). Tell her your birthday and she'll draw you a present!

Very occasionally posts about herself when she's not posting about baseball, dead people, Top Gear or her pets.

Would You Rather…

Have an Old English Sheepdog or a Bearded Collie?

I have two Old English Sheepdogs and they’re absolute delights. They’re playful, loyal, affectionate, and very in-tune with people’s emotions. Sheepies are a wonderful breed.

I hear Bearded Collies are great dogs, too, though! They’re also thought to be one of the breeds involved in breeding the OES, so they’re surely wonderful as well!


I saw Labyrinth this weekend, and I really wanted to draw Sir Didymus & Ambrosius.

As a side note, I really miss when creatures and characters had to be created through puppetry instead of CG. It always absolutely amazes me how lifelike and animated the puppets could be.

Sheepdogs, man.

Kid brother is back up at school and setting up his apartment today, but yesterday he got some help packing from Barnaby and Louise.

The AMNH library had a two-volume series of dog breed books out on display, so naturally I hunted this part down.

the most important breed okay

In case anyone ever wondered what a sheepdog looks like with a summer cut.

Yes, Barnaby has spots! He has natural highlights in his hair and they show up as spots when his hair is short.

Since it’s World Cup season, here’s Louise playing soccer/football with my kid brother. She loves chasing the ball down. Or him. It’s actually probably him she loves chasing down.

Before and after! I love groomer scissors.

I’m also glad I’ve found a real-life use for my ability to style cosplay wigs.

The groomer had to reschedule. I think I need to step in and trim their hair a bit so they can actually see.


I love coming home to this.

believe it or not Louise is a living breathing dog
