Dewalt's cartooning style is inspired in part by American animator Chuck Jones. She and her husband co-created the webcomic Vinci & Arty.

Although her character Vinci, a raccoon with red eyes and raspberry hair, derives his origin from her husband's Guardians of Gaia science-fiction universe, the Vinci & Arty continuity is significantly different in theme, tone, and basic assumptions.

Dewalt frequently uses her comic, and numerous single-panel portrayals of Vinci, to address real-world social issues and controversies; for instance, the comic Vinci and Arty frequently disagree on how "out" they should be concerning their relationship status and private lives.
