A fan of newspaper comic strips growing up, I began my first web comic on a whim and a lunch break in 2003. I have been creating and independently publishing them ever since. Most of my comics are autobiographical in nature. Read the digital archives by following the links below, or purchase print collections in my Etsy storefront.
Queen of Assholes is my first full-page, graphic novel-style project. I was initially inspired to create it by others' interest in the crazier and more dramatic events of my past. It is a story about my journey through self-discovery into self-acceptance — from how the treatment I endured as a child shaped my development, early stumbling through adulthood, my "great depression" followed by an early mid-life crisis, my dogged determination to improve myself and overcome past obstacles, and finally, diagnosis of ADHD at age 39.
Queen is drawn and inked traditionally, with digital colour.
Have Tablet Will Scribble follows in the lighter and four-panelled footsteps of Crap I Drew on My Lunch Break. Created digitally in full colour, with a more dynamic style, it chronicles my current adventures and the notable moments in my life. This comic began with the acquisition of my first Wacom Cintiq drawing tablet.
A Dollar Late and A Day Short began as an effort to break out from the artistic rut of Crap I Drew on My Lunch Break, and to remain productive through a period of increasing anxiety and depression. The humour is generally darker, and it is often an attempt to illustrate my deteriorating mental condition. A combination of traditional ink and digital toning, this is also when I began inking with a brush.
Crap I Drew on My Lunch Break was my first web comic, and follows the highlights of my daily life — sometimes with a bit of exaggeration. It also illustrates the joys and sorrows of my pet rats, and shares my thoughts on politics and pop culture. Due to several concurrent issues around the height of its popularity in 2006-2007, I struggled to finish strips. I eventually ended Lunch Break due to the frustration and resentment I felt toward my own work.
