Doodlin' in Queensland: an interview with Jodie Lyons

In 2010 my friend Jodie sporadically decided to put her stuff in storage and travel to Australia for a few months.  A few months grew quickly into a year and right before the start of 2012 she set foot on American soil for the first time since she left.  I was excited to see her again, but to be quite honest I almost didn't recognize her.  Never mind it was [...]
