I think this comic looks better on paper…not least because each panel is about 2”x1.5”. But yes, there are purple morning glories growing right outside my door. I hope they last, it’s getting bitter outside.
I drew this comic in my notebook this morning while listening to John Porcellino talk about his writing process. His influence is kind of obvious here, maybe. But I thought of it while I was walking to the classroom, so it was probably a subliminal rather than direct influence….
This took about an hour to draw, and I went straight to inking using microns—no pencils.
Here’s a little sketchbook doodle from class today that I messed around with in photoshop for a bit. I know it’s a little ironic when I hardly ever post anything here. But it’s good to have goals! I hope I can use this to encourage myself and others!
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.
