Hello everyone! I realized I’d never posted this online, so here it is. This was done between November and December of 2013 for a mini-anthology with my classmates Reilly Hadden, Anna McGlynn and Hannah Ratblood. It’s the last part of a continuous story about a town plagued by psychic disturbances after a meteor lands right in the middle of main street, so it might not make much sense on its own. But perhaps the Moon Rock anthology will be reprinted…and put on sale??? WHO KNOWS!!
Now that it’s half a year old, I can see a lot of flaws in it. But there’s no point in dwelling on it when new comics are waiting to be made!
Check out my friend Peter’s dailies, they’re pretty rad. I helped with this one!
Well it’s the end of a school year for me. This is the cover of my final project, a 25 page comic called Castle. I’m planning on bringing some copies to TCAF to trade and give to my admired artists, but if there are any left over after that I’d be willing to sell them for about $5 each. I’ll post a preview here eventually! For now please enjoy these production photos.
happy feast of st. valentine everyone!
thinking about snow (and also about how i am bad at drawing environments)
this is the first “spontaneous” comic, as in not for school or anyone but myself, I’ve done in a while, a long while. it’s not very good but maybe it is a step in the right direction.
here’s a little experiment that I don’t really feel like finishing…not right now anyway.
character designs for a class assignment.
what do y’all think? I’m not sure about the hair on the middle character….
here is a pattern that I made for a book project!
A Debt Repaid
Hi everyone! This is my most recent class assignment. We were told to adapt one of Aesop’s fables into a 6-page comic; I chose the Mouse and the Lion. I took it in a kind of Promethean direction….

Here’s my most recent project—a mini comic which we could only draw using Ed Emberly’s symbolic language. It was an exercise in how much you could convey with simple shapes. It was a lot of fun to do, and actually the simplistic style appeals to me a lot—I might go back to it sometime!
The story is based on a Coyote tale from the Karuk of northern California. Thanks, Coyote, for lending me your story.
This week’s homework haul. So good!! #myclassissupertalented #minicomics #awesome #comics #ccs #homework #comicbootcamp
This week we were given an assignment to write three autobio strips in the style of an assigned cartoonist. I was given Doonesbury to analyze and imitate, and although at first I wasn’t thrilled I learned a lot in the process! Doonesbury’s strength is in its heavy blacks, simplistic and easy to read style, and even lettering.
I recommend fullview since the images look a little grainy and pixelated shrunk down like this.

Look!! I’m in this!!
The completed print! Now picture this times fifty five. Six hours of my life gone forever. But the print looks good! In retrospect though it would look better with three colors…that’s for next time though!
